When you were a child did you ever collect football sticker books and trade your swapsies with your friends? If you did or still do (it’s amazing how many packs of High School Musical 3 stickers you can buy for a fiver) then you may well be interested in the latest premium content download from Electronic Arts.
Dubbed Ultimate Team, it allows you to collect cards (they come in little packs that you pay virtual money for) which can then be used to build your own ‘Ultimate Team’. The brilliance of it though is how well it captures the trading aspect of old, as it’s now possible to set prices online for other people to buy. It’s a great system and adds a whole new dimension to what is a surprisingly solid football game.
Gold packs have the best cards, and cost the most money. You’ll have to play a lot of matches in order to obtain enough virtual cash and unlock everything.
