The game play is brilliant. It's very enjoyable to play and addictive. There are so many teams to choose from and you can play your own season with a selected team. However it is impossible to make the goalie move during penalties and even though a tutorial is given during warm up sessions before games it still does not work. The PC controlled teams tend not to commit any fouls or receive and cards which is a little unrealistic.
The one main criticism (which is why it's a 3 star and not 5 star) is the setup. You are forced to create an Origin account and it is extremely hard to set up a league season offline. I have since found out that if you log on to Origin and select go offline you can access all of the options you need. This should be the default as, and I may be in the minority, I am not bothered about setting up teams, going online to play other people. I just want to play the game on my PC in my house with friends. Also when you play a season there is too much information about transfers etc. There should be an option just to pick a team and play a season without all of the added extras which I am not interested in. To sum up there is too much going on when people just want to play the game. Disappointed that you can't set up your own league and choose which teams to put in it or a custom cup.
Still enjoyable but it takes nearly a minute to get into the game to start playing.
