Although I believe sports games have come as far as they can for ideas, the graphics are incredible and seem to get better every year and the player impact engine adds some realism to how players react when they run into or trip over a player. The A.I. is smart making for more challenging game play. With all EA sports games you can use the EA sports world site and upload a picture of yourself to use on your virtual pro in the game. the be a pro, manager mode and ultimate team are all great and it makes for a hard choice what you want to play.
