The game is extremely fun. The amount of stuff you have to take into account can be overwhelming, but it's a good challenge. The game play is good as well. Dribbling is kind of awkward because you have to pull back but then it's hard to stop and pass without going into shooting mode and hitting cancel. Progress through the bottom league is good, but the moment you get promoted your toast. You have to buy players because you'll barely get any scoring attempts in the second leave with you mid 30/low 40 players. You loss and everyone will be unhappy. I'd be willing to buy a pack, but the 1, 2, or 3 players you'd get for $10 will not make a difference with the rest of your squad being so low and not having any depth.

Good game, ruined by need to buy cards. Been playing nss for years and played this one now and then. The gameplay itself is great and hard to put down when you get into it. However, I am sick of losing by 1 goal no matter how many I get and all concern bars filling up, leading to poor play and losing key players after a few seasons. The entire experience and team frustratingly falls apart after a few good days play and is basically a waste of time.

Phenomenal game that is well fleshed. Only things that I dislike is that energy is tough/near impossible to keep up without boosting via ads or paying for cards, and that contracts are based in number of games; I would much rather have seasons based contracts. That being said, way better than the competition's complete unplayability. Love the in game moments, building the team from the ground up, and all the intricacies.
