Must buy for Xbox, 2 Aug. 2005
Already hit the "Classics" on the shelves, this game is a definate buy for players offline or on. So much to learn, so much to do. The player structures have been lifted from the previous games to give the game a new edge over it's competitors. You control the player, and the ball, as opposed to pre-determined moves in other games.
The Master League stands on the original basis of you manage and play your team from the lowest league, and slowly build them up and increase your status and experience as you move along. Buying in players must be dealt with carefully, as wages and transfer money can be spent easily, and as soon as you go in the red when the season ends....Game Over.
Xbox Live - As a big fan of Xbox Live, this game has to be one of the best along side Ghost Recon 2. I just keep coming back for more (after 5 months of having this game), I'm still playing online. Great people to meet, although a few prefer to play silently. It opens up a new area of football and is very addictive and enjoyable to play on Live. Only for two players, but you find yourself setting up players, strategies and formations just so you can get that extra chance at goal.
Overall, one of the best football games ever. If you don't like football, you'll still like this game....even my girlfriend plays and she hates the game in real life ;-)
