I'm bored of the usual 3D soccer games around for the past several years - they all play the same. How they manage to push a FIFA game every year is astounding - apart from name updates it's very much "same old" generic 3D soccer.
This project looks refreshing - 2D style gameplay using a 3D engine. If it plays how I'd imagine then this could be great! Some people forget how enjoyable 2D style gameplay with easy intuitive controls can be.
