The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Review The summer months provide gamers and armchair football fans with a compulsory Why Don’t You moment, where we’re all forced to ‘just switch of our TV sets and go outside and do something less boring instead.’

And we all like vindaloo...

For us Brits, this usually means finding a nice spot on the village green within stumbling distance of the pub, rambling about the countryside for hours between pubs, or, for the more adventurous, taking a boating holiday on the Broads to - you’ve guessed it - navigate our way around as many pubs as possible.

This summer promises to be different. England are at the World Cup, and us gamers are still enjoying the release schedule fallout from last year’s Modern Warfare 2 fiasco, which sees a slew of highly anticipated titles released over the coming weeks, including Lost Planet 2, Alan Wake and Red Dead Redemption.

Leading the summer charge is EA’s official cash-in (sorry, tie-in) for the Fifa 2010 World Cup.

Using a modified Fifa 10 engine, and focusing on the forthcoming tournament, World Cup South Africa presents something of a summer holiday for the perennial series. This is Fifa taking it easy, kicking back and chillaxing in that special World Cup vibe.
