I usually hate sports games. Yet, after playing this in the store for 5 minutes, I was addicted. Like any good addict, I took out my wallet without a second thought and bought it. I have not been disappointed.

The only thing that would have made this game better would have been the Mexican soccer announcer yelling GOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAALLLLL every time you get a goal.
