Every four years, the world comes together to celebrate the most popular sport in the world. Contrary to American opinion, that sport is Soccer and that celebration is the World Cup. The World Cup is unique in that it is the only sport that most of the world participates in the tournament of nations. It seems only fitting that in a World Cup year, we get a game that encapsulates this event and gives gamers a chance to feel some of that excitement of the World Cup on their home consoles. Luckily, EA Sports steps up to the plate and gives us a stand alone Soccer game that focuses on the World Cup.
