This video game is perfect for the kid on your shopping list from ages 8 to 88! It combines the thrill of fast action video games with a favorite sport around the world: football (or soccer for us Americans!). My son, Josh, tried it out on his Xbox and he said it was fun to play, had good graphics and he especially liked that it had lots of teams, including Scottish Premier teams, which included his favorite, the Hearts!
