Euro 2012 Adrenalyn XL One Pack Review

The Euro 2012 is currently on and my Oranje (Dutch) are not doing well thanks to Germany and Denmark.  I went to the newsagent to see if they had any good packs of Adrenalyn XL and happened to stumble upon the new Euro 2012 cards!  I suddenly grabbed one pack (because I only had $3) which happened to be the one with the Dutch on it for good luck.  Might I say, these new cards are looking amazing!  Panini has finally decided to add the codes to the backs of the new cards just like the NBA, NFL and NHL versions!  This made my day as I had no clue of this at all.  The packs don't say anything about it either.  So instead of talking, here are the cards I pulled.

Yevhen Konoplyanka - At least I can now say I own a player from the Ukraine.

Gregory Van Der Wiel - This was awesome, I pulled a Dutch player and I've included a picture of the back. Sorry but I used the code for my account!

Michael Silberbauer - When I saw this cards I wondered if I could ever grow an awesome looking Moustache like that...

Darren Bent - Once again, Panini does not have the licence to make the players on the English side so they all just say England with a small logo of the English flag.

Joao Pereira - Nice Portuguese player.

Frank Ribery Star Player - The highlight of the pack is the Star Player.  The new versions of the Star Player cards have become boring but I think I can live with it.  

I have started an account for myself on the Euro 2012 Adrenalyn XL website called PureAdrenalyn.  My team is currently a low based team and I played a game and lost.  Lost is an understatement.  So please don't challenge me at the moment because I need to improve my squad!  Besides that, it's a great game and I highly recommend you get your hands on these while they last!  

I will now be rating thing differently on this blog.  For example, instead of out of five, it will now be based on insert cards.  So that means from lowest to highest it goes Base, Special, Extra, Extra Signature, Ultimate, Limited Edition.  

Card Design
I like the new design currently, but for some odd reason it reminds me of India and Asia.  Also good to see the codes on the back of the cards.

Are the Hits Good?
Well I think that the Star Players could be better but other then that they are okay.  I liked when they had Champions but now they are just called Masters or Top Masters.

Value for Money?
Not that good still in Australia, they should bring the price down to $2.00.

Would I collect them?
I would collect the Dutch in this set.


Extra Signature
