Gamble with sliding tackles to steal the ball without the referee whistling for a foul.

Playing the campaign mode unlocks stickers that you can use to boost the stats of your team or improve morale, maybe even obtain other special advantages. Choose from 36 teams full of glorious haircuts, moustaches and legends in short shorts. Lead them to glory and win the World Cup!
Legendary Eleven Trailer
Legendary Eleven arrives at the right time, just as the globe steps into the World Cup frenzy. Unfortunately the game does not manage to live up to the expectations of the moment. While there are some charming aspects about Legendary Eleven, namely at the level of its art style and at capturing the spirit of eras gone by, its control system makes the player feel completely removed from the action and the gameplay suffers immensely from this. To make it worse, the experience is significantly harmed by a series of bugs and flaws that render the game extremely difficult to enjoy.

With so few football games on Switch, Legendary Eleven might be tempting, but be prepared for a scruffy 0-0 draw rather than a 5-4 thriller. There are some highlights that impress, but the game's many technical flaws, lack of depth and unbalanced gameplay will most likely cause you yearn for something more refined and exciting. It really is a game of two halves.
Legendary Eleven is a satisfying nostalgic football game that brings you back some of your best memories of playing football games many years ago. Of course there are problems like bugs, lacks of variety in gameplay and weak servers, but finally it is a game that absolutely worth to try. If you like to come back to good old days with tons of nostalgic feelings, give Legendry Eleven a try.

Legendary Eleven just kind of feels and looks like a fuzzy drawing of EA's FIFA games. It's passable at best, but is off enough to not be worthwhile if you're seeking out some good old-fashioned arcadey soccer on your Switch. The only hope for Legendary Eleven is that developer Eclipse Games is going to update it over time, but as long as the base feels this raw and frustrating, I can't recommend it.
