I've lived in the US a year, before that I lived in the UK. I used to pay £10 ($16) a month for 250 minutes and unlimited everything else, no free phone but it still worked out cheaper. So ...

It's good, but it's just soulless
Biggest issue is not being able to switch players quickly enough to cut out a pass. I find the AI predictable and plays it far too safe. Also players are too disciplined in staying in formation. Gonna stay with it though and I'm hoping it plays better against hum...
