THE GOOD: Well, with the neat graphics, that kool dekes, sweet arenas, working scoreboard, butt load of options, this game is a must buy, multiple team uniforms, the option to play in a tournament waring your favorite country uniform, or in a play off, to get to the cup, a season, long, short, or medium, on the internet agains other people, quick match, and much more, ea sports threw out another great sports game, the music is also great, and the create a player option is awesome, so is the edit lines, and just about everything
