It's excellent and complete. It gives you the chance to win fantastic prizes. I also really like how it includes all the Member Associations of FIFA. For me, there's no other game like this; it's the best one.
What guidelines, if any, did you follow in making your predictions during the 2010 FIFA World Cup?
