Does anyone know how different FIFA world plays to its console counterparts? i.e. is it a totally different beast?

I had a go with mouse & keyboard; it's completely different when played that way. I only played a half, and I quite liked it, but I'm not a big-time FIFA guy or anything so I wouldn't necessarily read too much into that. Looks like it's worth a peek - the price is right, anyway!
