FIFA 10: Special Moves Guide

Skills moves can be performed by all players in FIFA 10. The type of skill a player can execute depends on his skill level.  A player with the highest skill level can perform the fanciest and most effective skills in the game, whereas a player with a lower skill level will attempt a simpler version of a trick or may altogether fail in his attempt of that skill. The speed of a skill move is dependent upon a player’s agility attribute. An agile player like Cristiano Ronaldo will be able to perform skills at a much quicker pace than a player with lower agility.

All of the skills in FIFA 10 are broken down into five levels of difficulty. Level 1skills are the most basic and can be performed by all players in the game. Level 2, 3 and 4 skills can be done by players who are relatively skillful in real life. Level 5 skills can only be performed by the most skilled footballers such as Ronaldinho and Frank Ribery, these players are able to do the fanciest skills and tricks in FIFA 10.

Here is a list of just some of the players at each skill level:
