Players are also given the option of choosing between 10 different stadiums and a variety of weather conditions. These can either be specified by the player or chosen randomly. Additionally, players are given the option of choosing between two sets of controls, a basic mode where the CPU retains some control, and Professional mode, in which everything is in your hands.
