I'm playing a game in the series every ten years and the same flaws (or design decisions) keep popping up.
And it feels nice that you can be a different type of players in Become A Legend -mode. I for one played as a striker who passes time behind the defensive line just barely out of offside position waiting for the through ball (Filippo Inzaghi -style). Which is totally different comparing to those flashy videos you can see on YouTube.
The BAL -mode could've been deeper. Now you just play your matches -or skip them- and during the next transfer window you move to another club or not. I usually did because the team I got out of always used completely different tactics than the team that hired me in the first place. I guess that's what success, money and a bolstered roster does to you.
This game is much more fun than the last version of the series I played. But I don't find it quite as fun as I do those graphically more minimalistic soccer games.
