A huge disappointment. Live 2000 was, and still is, miles ahead of this turd in terms of gameplay. The only thing that's improved are the graphics and animations. Everything else not only didn't improve, but actually took a step back!
The fact that EA Sports hasn't adequately dealt with the nagging AI glitches is not nearly enough to seriously diminish the overall impression and the unmatched atmosphere of the series that has been its trademark throughout the years.
