I actually agree. People usually complain about these interim titles that are released at full retail price, but they usually do offer decent improvements which go some way to merit the price tag.

People talk about FIFA 09 being the game which signalled FIFA's emergence as the best football title around, but for me it was actually the Euro 2008 game which did this - some nifty gameplay additions made it a real step up from FIFA 08, which I wasn't a great fan of. The same goes for the 2010 World Cup game which, from a presentation point of view, was actually better in many ways than the full game that followed.

People will prefer this price-wise, but I would have liked a full release as opposed to DLC.
