Moments of Magic

This completely revolutionizes 1v1 scenarios and gives players more opportunities in attack than ever before.

    Good but not great

    Overall the game is good and if you are on the fence about buying it, I would say go for it if you want a realistic experience but don't expect it to be fun all the time, as always the controls and dynamics can be frustrating. I'Il break down into the good and the bad. The Good: - the new training features in career mode where you actually play the mini games that would pop up before matches is a much welcomed change. - Addition of the womens team was done well. Although you can't play with them against the men's teams or in some online game modes it only allows these teams to be better enjoyed. - Dribbling the ball is more realistic than ever making offense more enjoyable. -Goals are much more satisfying albeit less frequent. Bad: - The game is much slower from previous titles. - Defense is harder to play than ever before, because its easier to dribble the defense feels much less effective, I often find that I should have taken the ball away easily and yet they managed to get away too easily - Unfortunately, slide tackles are still weak and nearly every player regardless of ability is able to stay up after being slide tackled. - Passing and through balls don't feel as effective and crisp anymore, often times I find the wrong person is receiving the ball or tracking it down. As a veteran FIFA player I know this is nothing new to the series but I feel that this year it hasn't been fixed yet although recent patches might have helped with this a little bit. - There is only one gamemode that isn't developed all the way for the womens teams. - The introduction of the new FUT mode is interesting but feels like EA is trying to charge consumers to play the game they already bought unlike the traditional FUT, to access this mode you need to pay with an excessive amount of coins or real money. This is a new trend in many titles and it is highly unwelcome. ( I paid for a full game and I don't want to be inhibited in my ability to play it without paying more money)

    Much improvement from Fifa 15

    I had an opportunity to play the game before it came out. The first thing I recognized playing the game is there would be a lot of whiners after it was released. The gameplay has been changed to parallel more of a realistic game. This means that spaces are tighter, and passing lanes are more difficult to find. It also means it isn't impossible to defend against the super-human runs and ball control of the attacker of previous years. No doubt scoring goals is what most kids want that play this title. With this in mind, I was very surprised to see EA take such an approach this year. EA knows that a lot of these gamers (many narcissistic) just want goals and more goals. Clearly they have catered to that to sell more of their product (I don't blame them). FIFA 15 was notorious for the "FIFA GOAL." A goal could be scored, absolutely defying all basic physics. The shooter would be running away from goal with the body improperly squared and off balance and the momentum carrying in the opposite direction to the shot (with my defender in close proximity pressuring him), yet all someone had to do is push the shoot button and roll the dice. An inconceivable percentage of balls would scream in top corners from 20, 25, even outside of 30 yards. I think the gameplay this year is great because it accentuates more of what you see in a real game. The fight exists across the entire pitch, and no longer can players depend entirely on pace to beat the AI, but will have to rely, at least some of the time, on ingenuity and vision to break down a side. So don't be swayed by all these whiners who want easy goals. I wont lie, this game is a defender's paradise (well comparatively to previous years), and that means lower scoring games, and scrappy fights for the ball in the midfield, but if you want a more realistic game and truly enjoy the entire "beautiful game" instead of just the overhead kick, then consider this title before listening to the whiners.

    The Gold Standard

    Simply put, FIFA continues to be an amazing game. Sure PES has gotten better, but to become a true part of the Global Game, you need the licenses. FIFA delivers that and more. The defenses have gotten much better, even on the easier levels of difficulty. You will burn yourself silly by trying to take possession. It's not as easy as it was. You must work to get the ball back. My only issues with the game are: - Commentary is getting stale. I know it's Martin Tyler, but we need more info to be spewed. Give me more options. I would pay an easy $10 more to get Ray Hudson on here calling La Liga games. - Access to other languages besides English and Spanish. I want to play a Bundesliga game with German in the background. Stuff like that. - I really like the licenses that FIFA has piled up, but there should be an option for people to purchases more leagues and teams. I would pay an easy $40 to get 20 more leagues or so and more international teams. Because of this, some international teams are missing quality players (example: Peru is missing Pablo Guerrero because he plays for a Brazilian club. So you can't even have him on the international squad.) - Like the direction that FIFA went in getting the girls involved. The next step is to get some leagues. I would start with some of the European ones and the US one.

    Very good

    First of all, I have only been playing FIFA for a couple of months now, but I am somewhat of an "extreme" gamer. So I was determined when I first started playing to be very good so I invested a lot of time playing all of the demos, on PC, PS4 and on PSVita. When I started to get very good on higher difficulty levels, I was able to make a good assessment on how well the game is. I surveyed PES 2015 & PES2016, I can see how some people would say that the PES series is superior, it has much more fluid gameplay in terms of passing and the character movement (very good title by the way). But I think after playing FIFA 16, that overall the game is better (And I thought I would never say that. .because I love PES 2016). FIFA 16 has improved the sliding tackles, the goals are a little more difficult to make (which is a good thing). I think that the people who are very good at playing FIFA on the higher difficulty levels would probably rate the game better in terms of the difficulty of scoring lots of goals. Compared to FIFA15, the game is definitely a step up in graphics (not a huge difference, but noticeable). But FIFA gives you that realism that I like when watching a real soccer game.

    This game is a waste of money all around, and Im going to give you the reasons. BTW, I dont have PES, I dont think that game is better, and I dont own it. I bought Fifa and thats what Im going to talk about. First of all I own every FIFA copy from Fifa 98, til today. I know what Im talking about. Why this is a waste of your hard worked money: 1) Its basically the same game, but its slower. Everything is clumsier. The movement, the passes, etc. 2) Its impossible to tackle. 3) No matter what player you have, when a through ball is sent to your forward, youll always arrive second. You could be playing Scumback United, the CB is going to reach the ball first. 4) The other team will be fast and diligent. Your players will take the time of their lives to control and pass the ball. 5) No matter where you shoot, or when, the rival players will be on the way. ALWAYS. 6) There seems that when the computer wants to score a goal, theres nothing you can do to stop. You'll know what Im talking about.

    Bit of a learning curve, but fantastic game

    With FIFA16 there are some minor graphical improvements, the addition of women teams, and the great variety of licenses and game modes the series is known for. However, with an overhaul to the passing system, as well as improved AI (especially the goalkeeper), some of the fans became divided on the game. In contrast to FIFA15, you can't just rush with a striker and score (unless you're playing on the lowest difficulties). This, to me, is a needed improvement as it calls for a bit more strategy when it comes to scoring. For those who have yet to play a game in the FIFA series and those FIFA15 fans taken a back by the new way to play, there is a fantastic training mode that will greatly help bring you up to speed. Lastly, the Fifa ultimate team is back and in my opinion, the most fun mode the game has to offer. I highly recommend this game to soccer fans as this game does get a lot right, especially in it's presentation.

    Best FIFA In Years!

    Do you remember how Madden 09 changed the way Madden is played? Well, to me FIFA 16 is that reincarnation the series has needed. Gone are the days of PACE. You needn't worry so much about how fast your players are if you can pass the ball effectively. You don't have to worry so much about nooby players always playing through balls on the counter all game either. It's just not as much of an arcade sim as it's been the last few years. If you are having trouble at first, it's probably because you are trying to run too much or too far with one player. The defense will catch you. Learn to pass accurately and changing field is never a bad thing either to put your opponent off a little bit. All in all, if you've been sick and tired of the super fast players running away with games and feeling like there is little to no tactical advantage of strong/passing players this is the FIFA for you.

    FIFA 16 solid as usually but...

    FIFA every year is a great game as again 16 is a very good soccer/football game. Very similar to 15 with some noticeable upgrades visually, my main issue is the BIG addition this year was being able to play with the women's teams. My daughter was very excited about this but to her dismay and major disappointment it is VERY limited there are only a few team/players and you CANNOT create a female player which was what my daughter wanted to do the most to create and put herself in the game. Also, the female cannot play against the male players which she was also hoping to play against and with me. So in summary if you like every other FIFA you will enjoy this game just take heed to the warning above if you were excited for the option to play with the women's team it might be better to wait until next year and hopefully they will make those additions.
