And on Amazon for the same price right now, for PS3 at least.
I'm having a lot of trouble with FIFA 10, to the point that I'm actually contemplating getting rid of it. Now, don't get me wrong, there are a lot of things about the game that I absolutely adore, and yet for each one of those there seems to be a factor that is pushing me away.
It's not too often that I curse whilst playing a video game, but I've been calling the referees 'words removed' quite often due to so many inconsistencies with decisions given against me and for the CPU, which ultimately seem to cost me games.
The worst incident came earlier this evening, as I was playing Villa v. Sampdoria. Despite dominating the game, it was tied at 1-1 on 50 minutes. One of their defenders hoofed a ball clear and all of the way into my half. Although I had a striker right on my controlled defender, Davies, I thought to myself, "not a problem, I've got three other defenders here anyway!"... That was until I saw Friedel running way out of his area (25-30 yards!), and on to a collision course with Davies. Just before Davies could get the ball, they ran straight into each other. Strangely, only Davies hit the ground, and I was suddenly in control of Friedel. He was immediately dispossessed by the striker. Goal.
The worst thing about it is that it wasn't the first time I've experienced something like that.
Following that, 40 minutes of dominance counted for nothing. So many questionable decisions given in favour of the CPU, freekicks, advantages, you name it! Sampdoria's 'keeper must've been the son of God, because Jesus certainly bloody saves! He saved everything thrown at him. That was, when I could get past the defence, who seemed to hulk up a little after Sampdoria took the lead...
Come the end of play, Sampdoria had totalled 4 shots on target. I had totalled 29 (I play 10 minute halves).
This has been happening more often to me, and it's making what is normally a pleasant gaming experience a very horrible one. I've no problem with losing a game when I am outplayed, outclassed or when I simply deserve to lose. I've had plenty of those down the years. But I can't stand losing like this. It's almost like PES 2008 all over again...
Surely I'm not the only one experiencing this on these forums?
