Summary

Very much a case of second time is the charm! Following a stuttered release on Nintendo switch with a few game breaking bugs,(now fixed) Legendary Eleven comes at you in a more complete package. Bugs squashed, You also get treated to a new legendary matches mode and online. Online is invite only which is a shame but not a huge deal, The gameplay remains fun and while it may not have the official names and ball the bells and whistles of a FIFA release, It does have heart and the game does play really well, Its approachable and kinda charming. One to check out for football fans looking for something different.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
