I went from ripping the Vancouver Whitecaps, one of MLS’ better sides in its Western conference, to feeling like I’d forgotten how to play soccer against the Chicago Fire, further down in the standings.Again, in “The Journey: Hunter Returns,” the user may play as Alex Hunter or as the entire team.
To gain a point against the odds is one thing, but to come from behind after matching the champions is another thing all together.
James Milner offered good support and the pairing interchanged well as they looked to expose the hosts' notoriously fragile For all their flair, the champions clearly didn't fancy a scrap and it was only when Roy Keane arrived midway through the second half that they found a new lease of life.
Keane had blasted his team-mates on the eve of the match for not having the desire to retain the title, but his appearance as a sub rallied the troops and it was no coincidence that they scored within six minutes of his arrival.
Because of the upgrades to teammate AI, I recommend controlling the whole team to take advantage of Hunter’s better anticipation away from the ball, unless you really know what you’re doing at one of the three positions he plays, and where he should be on the pitch at all times to receive passes and finish a scoring opportunity.
(had some AI issues at launch that were eventually patched out.) The result in this year’s version of “The Journey” is that Hunter is more of a well-rounded player, more involved in assists and second-chance goals, and less obligated to do everything himself.
