I apologize if this has been discussed before. I did a search in the console gaming section and found nothing. I think this is a pretty good game. It doesn't always seem very realistic, but it's fun to play and there are a lot of different teams to make things interesting. The game seems to encourage a bit too much long passing and not enough of a short pass possession game. For example, the easiest way to score is to clear the ball from your defensive half and have a forward slide tackle the ball away from the opponent's defender. Then boot the ball past the bad A.I. keeper. The score tends to be way too high (even on the highest difficulty level). What formations do you guys use? I typically use 4-4-2 or 4-3-3 with everybody straight across? Does anyone like to mix things up and play with a sweeper or have some of the defenders come up on the wing? I was playing 4-3-3 and switched by defenders to have the two outside guys with arrows pointing up. That made my forwards play defense, along with a few other wierd changes.
