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.
