Review

So is it worth it? It's a really good can and very versatile with great stats in all areas.

Fast, strong and agile with great shooting and passing stats - you could play Barnes on the wing as a striker, or behind the striker.

If you can do this for under 400,000 coins, I would say it's well worth it!
