I totally agreed with all the criticism of all other reviews. After having played the game for a few weeks, I can now tell that the computer is going to score once the ball crosses the half way line. It's so scripted, there is nothing you can do about it. Sometimes the commentators even tell you about it 5-6 passes beforehand. The switching over is a joke, It sometimes switches to your centre back rather than the player next to the ball on the other side of the pitch, super frustrating. crosses are sometimes impossible to defend, no matter what you do. If the ball ends up at one of your players and you're not in control yet, he moves as much as a lamppost and the ball simply bounces off him. The squad menu in career mode is a joke, swapping players takes forever. I remember the menus on my C64 were quicker than that. And when you search for a player in the transfer market it takes ages to come back with a result even though you define "position, age, and the team" ! - I mean the matches are never more than 10 names, why does it take a 21st century computer half a minute to come back with a result???
All in all, the game is horrible and a massive let down by EA. I went and bought PES14, much more realistic in terms of gameplay, just a shame that they don't have the rights to all the leagues, team names and players. And the menu isn't great either...
