Given their picture distribution policy, I might be forgiven for hoping the game falls flat on it's face, you'll be glad to hear the opposite is the case. Scoring a massive 83% from 6 reviews on Metacritic the following is a summary of the reviewer's comments.
Reviews Summary xbox360
Control feels natural and responsive, typical lavish gloss and high presentation
Graphics on the 360 are not as big an upgrade as they could be, complete lack of innovation.
What I consider to be a "next generation" game.
Fails to captivate your interest beyond a handful of games.
Good gameplay, palpable pageantry, above average graphics
Lack of online tournaments is biggest detriment.
Most solid soccer gameplay experience yet
Reviews Summary xbox, ps2
No need for official licencing and new global mode? then no big reason to upgrade
Deepest World cup Title of all time, star players and a nifty new shooting mechanism
Some framerate choppiness, for most part gameplay is same as last few games.

Silly policy EA, change it!
