One of its great options lets you determine the Match Type: Action exaggerates your teams abilities, Arcade makes all of the teams balanced, and in Simulation all of the teams reflect their real-life counterparts. You can also set the period length, weather conditions, stadium size and much more. If you're playing style is aggressive and you find your players getting ejected, you can even turn off the foul feature and the refs will leave you alone.
During the game, you can even compare the two squads in several statistical categories: Score, Saves, Fouls, Shots on Goal, Corner Kicks, and time of possession (Attacking, in Midfield, and Defending). Also, you can pick one of eight camera angles, and turn on Picture-in-Picture (PIP). You can even choose a different Camera for the PIP feature so you have two perspectives on the game at the same time. If you have a Controller Pak connected to one of your controllers, you can save your League, Tournament, and Playoff progress after the last completed game and continue at a later time.
