  1. Cool clip. Never heard of this game before. Speaking of games, stay away from the new FIFA 13. My PS3 froze 3 times last night, had to reset the whole system and it erased all unsaved memory – including me winning my first league in world class mode. Not a happy camper with EA.

  2. I bought a set for my kids last Xmas. (ordered a set from that came with hand painted Tottenham and Arsenal players) I won’t go so far to say it is my kids favorite toy or that it can compete with the XBox, but they do occasionally pull it out to play (which is more than I can say about 75% of their toys/games. Strangely, it is also the first game to come out when they have friends over.

  3. Yea, I had been wanting this game for awhile and was lucky enough to get a set from some friends. My daughter and I play every Sunday afternoon now. I even purchased a couple blank teams to customize from the same website that Rob mentioned. It an AWESOME game!!!
