Alright, I'll start this off by saying that this game is the most entertaining sports game I've ever played. Granted, I haven't played too many in my day, but this sure takes the cake for this years line-up of sport games.
Since playing this game, I've spent many hours on all the sport games with a 12 added on to the name, excepting MLB 2k12 as it hasn't released yet, but all the others.
This is the best of them all. The graphics are very nice. After I've scored a goal with one of my favorite players and the camera zooms in on him for his celebration, I can just barely tell the difference between the real player and his virtual double.
The sound is great, making me feel like I'm actually in the stadium with my Turtle Beaches. The cheering of the fans, the great announcing. It all comes together to make an enjoyable audio experience.
The game plays as smooth as the surface of an alpine lake. The AI works surprisingly well for me, anticipating my shots and passes. Career mode is surprisingly deep and well done. I don't much care for Ultimate Team, but many people seem to like it.
As for replayability, I can't stop myself playing it to complete challenges with my Virtual Pro.
