FIFA 11 Lets You Play As The Goalkeeper – Fun Fun Fun

EA’s ‘FIFA 11’, which launches at the end of September (with Kaka on the cover – duh), has a host of new features, naturally. The most intriguing of these is the ‘Be A Goalkeeper’ mode:

“EA announced at gamescom today a “Be A Goalkeeper” feature for FIFA 11. You’ll be able to play through the game’s 15-year career mode as a goalie, or create one in Virtual Pro 2.0 and learn about the position.

“In addition, you can finally play as a goalkeeper online, which means that FIFA 11 will be the first soccer game to feature full 11-on-11 online play with each player locked into one position on his or her team. Be A Goalkeeper will offer varying levels of CPU help – assisted, semi-assisted, and fully manual – so you can ratchet up the challenge as your goalie skills increase.” – Destructoid

A 15-year career playing in goal!? You’d have to be a serious FIFA fanboy and/or goalkeeping fan to endure such a mode.

That said, my interest is piqued enough to want to see how it feels to control a pixelated Petr Cech, or – for the serious masochists – Rob Green.

    These new features always make you want to buy the game but after playing about 5 matches as a goalie you’ll think: meh. And start playing the normal manager mode which has been in the game for several years

    Ehh.. goalkeeper…it’s like watching the game and making 2 saves in the entire match, not too much action really, when u play against the computer it’s really boring if don’t play with the entire team like in manager mode. I’ll stick with carreer mode since manager mode is no more. Hope they didn’t take away play with all players setting in be a pro

    Being a goaly is one of the most important placement in the whole game so I’m my opinion the best feature abot this game is In fact “Be A Goalkeepe”
