Without doubt the coolest features of the FIFA Ultimate Team game mode is the inclusion of the Legends of the beautiful game in the last few years. This elite group of the greatest players to have ever kicked a ball not only come as a dazzling gold-and-white card, which looks pretty amazing in its own right and they are also some of the highest rated, most skilled players in the game. The notion of a team spear-headed by the combo of Pelé and Messi with service from Iniesta and Gheorghe Hagi is part of the reason football gaming can be so much more entertaining than the real thing. We have the potential to play out the greatest matches with the very best players that could never have happened. Ultimate Teams implementation of Legends is not without its issues. The fact that the Legends remain exclusive to Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles is a source of immense frustration. It's obviously a huge marketing deal by Microsoft to try and lure gamers who only use their console to play FIFA (a surprisingly high number) to choose their systems over the Sony alternative. Its just a shame that the console war has led to there being a fairly big disparity between the FUT experiences on Playstation versus Xbox. Another problem is that there are several notable absentees from the list of 42-legends included on FIFA 14. Clearly with the untold number of world-class players who have graced the pitch with their talents, it would be impossible to include everyone. However, some of the names seem like such obvious inclusions that it is shocking they didnt make the cut on FIFA 14. Lets hope when FIFA 15 hits store shelves later this year EA can right this wrong and give a bit of love to these spurned Legends. And here are the 10 biggest Legends EA have to include on FIFA 15:
