The most unique features of ANSTOSS 3 are still present in this game, e.g. the possibility to host parties to improve the team atmosphere, rule changes over the playing time or a soccer quiz during winter break. New are special player abilities which improve his overall quality, e.g. "Flügelflitzer" for a player with high speed and dribbling skill who plays at the wings.
