A decent experience with a much better release on PC than FIFA 15. Unfortunately the passing system is poor and holds back the game. The new long pass is a welcome edition but the passing power and accuracy of medium passes is terrible which has a big effect on the gameplay. The inclusion of women to the game is great as the women's sides play differently than the men's making it feel like an additional game mode. Training players via mini-games in career is welcome addition as are a few quality of life changes to Ultimate team along with the Draft mode which can be fun but overly expensive to enter. Another negative is you cannot make custom set pieces anymore or use team practice mode. My overall score is based on the amount of options, teams, and modes available along with the gameplay which holds down the score.
After all these years of FIFA and PES fighting for the best football game in the world, it always ends up that one wins one year, the other next year. While I love the idea of seeing the "female part" of the business in this year's FIFA edition, I still don't find it much better than the last year's one. It is a pretty nice game with great graphics, physics and all that. But seriously, let's face the reality in the eye, literally no better features or bug fixes have been assigned to this year's FIFA edition if I compare it to FIFA 15. One of my friends said that everything that was bad about last year's FIFA is existing in this one as well. And, oh God, if you only knew how right he was.
FIFA 16 is at heart still the same FIFA game that you have known and loved over the years. However this year EA decided to switch up a few mechanics here and there in order to keep this years edition fresh. The most notable difference is the changes that have been made in passing. Passing is no longer the easy to use mechanic that it used to be, now passing requires a lot more skill and patience. Although this sounds fine on surface level, it does mean that FIFA does become a lot less easy to simply pick up and play off the start. Even as a quite experienced FIFA player I was having trouble with it as it took me a fair few games to adjust to. The weighting of the passing also provided for some issues. With the AI in this game being largely improved over that of previous years it felt though after weighting patiently for a pass to open up, the pass had no weight to is and slowly rolled to the player causing for a immediate interception from the AI. However despite this the game is still definitely enjoyable, it simply just takes a little bit more time to master. I definitely see myself playing this throughout the year as I go onto build my ultimate team. Overall this is a great game and despite the flaws that it has it is certainly a game I would recommend for any football (or soccer) lover!
Straight to the point, what is the biggest difference between this and previous FIFA titles ? One word, REALISM. Expect slow-played football, thinking and relying on tactic to pass and play the ball. FIFA 16 is the most realistic FIFA title to the date and even surpassing the realism factor of Pro Evolution Soccer. Conclusion : Are you a hardcore FIFA player and mature enough to understand how real football being played every weekend ? Buy FIFA 16.
FIFA 16 has in many ways been upgraded and made better than the previous. The graphics are better, vivid and richly detailed with a very real like feeling. It is very immersive and there are many breathtaking moments. In the heat of the game, everything seems fluid and beautiful, and lovely to look at. The music and sounds are again superb, and a pleasure to listen. The game has fixed many bugs. Some annoying things over-the-top going balls and the defender behaving in a weird way, have been completely fixed. The defense system is far better handled and equipped with new techniques. Things like toe pokes and slides are working better. Fouls are more harshly punished but also disrupt the play more. Another new feature is the tackle feint, which is fun to do and use in play. The AI has been fine tuned to play expertly, and the difficulty is good, not too hard or easy. The style of play is noticeably more aggressive, with more passes and shoots and tackles than before. The addition of Draft mode is also very nice, which allows you to complete judge a team before you make any decisions. All in all, this is a must play game for any FIFA or football fan. As for new comers, this is the right time to hop in. 9/10.
