The game features a unique control system which allows players to bend or swerve the ball during the shot, 16 preset competitions from around the world, Formation and Team editors, and the ability to create custom leagues and tournaments.

Awesome Soccer World 2010 is the next generation in the critically acclaimed Awesome Soccer series, and far from resting on their laurels, Red27 Studios have added a whole host of new features, new teams, new tournaments and new stadiums to make this the biggest and best yet.

Awesome Soccer World 2010 features the revolutionary "Awesome Aftertouch System" - an amazing control system that enables you to bend and swerve the ball in MULTIPLE DIRECTIONS during a single shot to produce some truly amazing goals.

This intelligent control system also allows you to produce flying headers, acrobatic overhead kicks, and incredible sliding challenges at the touch of a button...forget memorising impossible 8 button combinations...this game is all about action and excitement and getting you in the thick of it as quickly as possible!

The game not only features the World 2010 tournament, it allows you to challenge for glory in a total of 16 Preset Tournaments from around the globe, including Elite European Club Competitions, Leagues from England, Italy, Spain, Germany, France, Holland and the USA, and a host of other International Tournaments.

Victorious in all 16? Fear not, because you can also create your own Tournaments, Cups and Leagues featuring up to 128 teams, which should more than satisfy those competitive appetites!

ASW2010 includes 280 International and Club Teams for you to choose from, but also allows you to add your own thanks to the comprehensive Team Editor included with the game. Teams, Players, Kits and Badges can be created or amended - it even allows you to use your own images for club badges - offering complete customization.

A sophisticated Formation Editor completes the extensive list of customization options, allowing you to create new or modify existing formations and select the exact position of each and every player wherever the ball is on the pitch.

The "Golden Ball" system has been revamped dramatically and now offers a staggering 300 for you to challenge for over 5 skill levels!

For those unfamiliar with this unique Awesome Soccer feature, a Golden Ball is awarded in recognition of your achievements within the game, like winning your first game, scoring your first overhead kick, right up to becoming the 2010 World Champion. But it will take a truly Awesome Player to win all 300...

The game boasts all the next gen features expected from a high end soccer game, including dramatic penalty shoot outs, interactive Action Replays, a stylish Offside Cam, Match Highlights, Man Of The Match / MVP awards, In-depth Match Statistics, Leading Goal Scorer Competitions, plus much, much more.

    Paul Sams Discusses WoW Annual Pass, Mists Of Pandaria
    6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

    VentureBeat has published a new interview with Blizzard Entertainment's Paul Sams about some of the company's recent announcements. The article covered a variety of topics including the reasoning behind offering Diablo III as reward for those who sign up for a World of Warcraft Annual Pass.

    VentureBeat: The World of Warcraft Annual Pass was a big announcement. It’s an ambitious decision, especially to give away Diablo III. Does it tie back into reports from earlier this year of declining subscribers for World of Warcraft?

    Paul Sams: Honestly, what it ties into [is that] we always are looking for ways to show an amount of, I guess … gratitude or what-have-you to our player base. We talk about, all the time, how can we do something cool for our players that’s going to benefit them, benefit us, and that they’ll feel is a give-back of sorts. That’s where this started. There’s a variety of benefits that come from it. Certainly the players get DIII, which is pretty exciting. That doesn’t mean they get the expansion sets, it means that they get DIII, right? So we get people excited about playing that … they get to touch it, feel it, experience it. And then from our perspective, it also is a situation where they aren’t necessarily going to leave WoW to play our own game. We don’t want to take players from our universe and shift them over from World of Warcraft. There’s a lot of players playing WoW that have huge amounts of friends and family that they play World of Warcraft with, so [giving Annual Pass subscribers Diablo III] says, enjoy both of them. You don’t have to pay any more than you already do for WoW.
