  1. Playing this on switch and have given up, there seems to be no way to actually play a game. Got to be the most hopeless game interface I have run across in twenty years of gaming. Taking the game back to the store to get a refund. EA Sports once again prove to be completely hopeless in providing anything remotely playable. And I didn’t even get far enough to run into the multitude of bugs that apparent exist in the game.
