EA Sports FIFA Superstars is is new flash based Facebook game released just in time to take advantage of the buzz surrounding the 2010 FIFA World Cup which Starts on June 11th in South Africa.

FIFA Superstars is a game that allows players to play against friends and computer profiles in flashy, predetermined soccer games. It combines various genres but is basically a trading card game which rewards players with experience and coins for advancing through the game. An actual match in FIFA Superstars does not involve the player controlling his players on the pitch like a typical FIFA game would but instead matches are predetermined and are stats based with flashy animations and drama being used to entertain the players as a match goes on.
Sadly these animations are repetitive and get boring after the first couple views. The presentation of the game overall is very well done, menus and other navigational elements are top notch. The main menu and it’s different functions are explained below:
