Career mode seems a little boring...
Got my Xbox version on saturday, got a $10 discount at EB which was a bonus.
I think the first thing you notice is the players look really shiny, they all seem to have a glow, maybe it's delayed fallout from Chernobyl. Although I must say that you get used to it, and they look better in Broadcast or tele mode.
There really doesn't seem to be enough feedback in Career mode.
I started a career with Watford in Div 1, and the goals are realistic, like:
- finish in top half of league
- have a positive goal diff
- record at least 13 wins.
- plus losing points for relegation
You don't really get much weekly or even monthly feedback. So I find myself focussed on churning through the games, plus the weekly training ( all by stats ) seems a little shallow ( but this isn't a management game )
It is good that the transfer window closes at the proper times ( I got caught out by that one when I tried to pry Jeamin Defoe away from the hammers )
I love the new free kick system and have curled some nice ones around or up and over the wall.
Still figuring out the Corners and OTB ( the clear button is not in the best spot to activate OTB ), I also can't seem to get the IGM to work, but practice mode is good for this.
I have noticed a few glitches in the commentary where they will react 2 or 3 seconds late to an event, or "The goal keepers just tips it over the bar!!!" when he caught it. Even had one player walking through the net in a cut scene.
All in all it is much more fluid, and easier to pass to the ball to no one, and a little more randomness that occurs in real football.
