Exciting Ideas ,

Solid and excited to see the future

This game is truly remarkable when it comes to its ability to combine fun and challenging gameplay with an in depth simulation of managing a football club. This alone makes this game an amazing experience for me the only things that could Improve this game are.
1. Having the ability to manage a national team.
2. More customization of club kits and crest etc.
3. Manager transfers or the ability to manage another team.
Also an extra thing that could be interesting would be the the ability to select a location or city that your team plays in and have certain rival teams which can correspond (teams from the same city or area or maybe a team who tend to beat you ) these rival teams would serve as extra objectives and could be used to make playing in the lower leagues in the beginning of the game more interesting as playing a rival team could mean could mean losing or gaining a large amount of trust from the fans or board. This same affect could be used if I player was bought from or sold to a rival club.

I have always been a fan of new star but...

I love literally everything about this game, however three things should be improved. One of them is the free kicks, they are either great scoring opportunities or pointless play resets. What I mean by that is that you can either directly shoot it or you are forced to pass it to someone next to you, there are no real set piece plays in the game. And I think this is due to the next problem. Why can’t you lob the ball? Pls pls add that with the passes just lets select the player and give us an option to hit the ball in a certain way or just two passing options. At least when the player is in a certain position, give the high cross option pls. Finally, the tutorial is kind of sloppy and I don’t feel like it fully introduces the functions of the games. What I mean by that is that there is a lot of managerial goals set by your bosses that I don’t really know how to achieve because the tutorial doesn’t really cover those aspects. For everything else, this game is pure gold.

Decent game overall

I like the concept of the game with the managing and all but there are some things that could be improved. For example, you start out in the bottom league. My team finished first but my players ratings were well below some other teams ratings so I lost a good amount of games. I was fine with that cause I thought I’d move up one league and still be able to compete. Nope. I moved up 4 leagues and now my team is nowhere near the level of other teams. I didn’t realize that this was gonna happen so now my team gets hammered every game and I have serious player issues. I think each league you win you move up one league not a ridiculous amount. There was no warning or anything about this so it’s kind of screwed up my entire progress. There are also game control problems. For instance, you can’t lob the ball for a cross or play it over defenders. Also, when you give a pass, you can’t determine power. So lots of times I’ll give a through ball that goes all the way to the keeper even though I put it a little ahead of a player. I know I wrote a lot of things but this game is fun and addicting but could be a lot better.
