What, too round, for a soccer ball? Yeah, like it's a smooth round ball w/o much indentation on the stitched seams. A normal ball with puffy pentagons and hexagons stitched together has little valleys on the seams. I feel that provides a better and more traditional "feel". I know that what the pros play with now is like some science fiction kinda ball compared to the leather Umbros I grew up with, but still, I like an old school style ball myself. You can't even find a soccer ball made out of actual leather now, it's weird how some sports hang on tradition like football and baseball but soccer has gone all high tech with balls that are better (mainly for prevention of moisture absorption and getting heavier I suppose).
It does glow, not that brightly, you're not gonna play in the dark, but it will probably get you an extra 15 minutes of playing time before it's "too dark". Good thing if you're a kid, not so great if you want that kid to come in and take a bath.
