Real Football 2010 updated with... better graphics?

Apparently an update has been approved for RF2010. The main feature of the update being better graphics. Are they as good as FIFA 10's?

Discuss.

Games I have beta tested: Minigore, Cogs, Guerilla Bob, Above and Beyond: Air Combat, Baseball Superstars 2010, 33rd Division, Cash Machine, 5 star General, Flick Football... Possibly some other ones I;ve forgotten

Wait, what kind of football are we talking about? Real football, or soccer? Because you're comparing it with FIFA

Football is called football worldwide
Just Americans needs a special word, because they got their own football.

Well, technically they are correct.
Back in the days, 'Football' was the name for any sport involving a grass pitch and a ball. It was later split into 'Soccer' and 'Rugby'. Rugby being a form of Football (hence the reason for having [TEAM NAME] Rugby Football Club, i.e HRFC - Haverfordwest Rugby Football Club).
So in actual fact, the Americans are correct on this one.
Just a little history lesson

Football is just a generic term used to express the most common code used in a country. US uses it to American (code) football. Most of the world uses football to express FA (Football Association code). Soccer is a slang to express 'association' and it is mainly used in US because for US culture football is American Football.

There is no right or wrong, just culture perspectives that some people don't know.

Well I'm from Australia, and we have our own football (AFL), but I just call both Soccer and AFL Football when I'm talking to anyone but an Australian.

If I'm talking to an Australian, I'll call it Soccer. It's a natural thing.

How is it right to call a sport that uses mostly hands football?

Four most influential games: Papi Jump, iDracula, Fieldrunners, Flight Control.

I had to sign up just to clarify this point

Soccer is short for Association Football, first used in Newcastle, England, well over a hundred years ago.

It is as much an English word as Football, and both can be used without feeling culturally claustrophobic

The incorrect notion that 'soccer' is an American word is relatively modern,
