I like that they have that How to Play guide.

It's really in depth and informative. Makes me want to give Live an honest chance and learn it somewhat.

Wow what a beautiful menu, and descriptions sound so sexy, but what about gameplay and graphics? )

Pretty cool that EA has controls for passes and I also like the defensive settings. I also thought the IDEA behind the sig controls and haaving guys like Melo control differently from Irving is cool.

Once this games animation catch up with the controls it should be solid.
