    For one more year FIFA 15 manages to maintain its high standards with a further addition of new animations and even better visuals. However, the same thing cannot be said for the gameplay which remains virtually unchanged from its predecessor.

    FIFA 15 is pretty much one of the best football games out there. The Ignite engine works flawlessly and delivers a new quality, and playing with the football became more demanding, fluent and much less predictable. I have played an early version of the game a while ago, and it didn't seem like FIFA 15 was going to be good. But it is. Very much so. "Just one more game" syndrome is present and everyone should fall under its charm.

    Only in one aspect I would have expected more from Fifa 15, namely in the game modes.

    If the team at EA Sports gets the balance right between attack and defence, this game would be near perfect. But as it stands, FIFA 15 feels like a slightly improved version of FIFA 14, a game that itself was near footballing perfection.

    A finely tuned game that doesn't need to overhaul anything and offers a gameplay experience without any compromises. [Issue#246]

    FIFA 15 still plays decent football, but with the same (increasingly inexcusable) bugs and instabilities of the past few seasons.

ThisI played the demo and i'm waiting for the full game, but how can people who are used to playing this game on PC rate this **** below 6? This feels like going from FIFA 13 to FIFA 15 and not 14 to 15. Finally we get the next gen version. The graphics are amazing, the animations are far better, not perfect by any means though, but it's getting there. I rate this a 10 because i finally feel like i can say i enjoy FIFA more than PES.

Your play no longer stops dead after you pass to a player who was standing still. More teammates will be looking to make offensive runs. First touches are more controlled but seem just as dynamic as last year. All the new animations really make gameplay more fluid... seeing a teammate jump backward to chest a ball down to the ground is amazing to watch, and has positive gameplay repercussions. Many lament the "arcadeification" of this year's version... but to me it really just seems like defending is just all that much more meaningful, and even... fun.

    The PC version is extremely playable! Few bugs but zero showstoppers. Don't bother with Ultimate Team though, just like in all the other versions, the transfer market is all bots.

    As for now it is the best game in FIFA series and it is the best football game in 2015.

    But I hate that it focuses only on that FUT feature that for me is not existent.

    I play single player career mode and here is very poor experience. My player contract in first team never expires so I always earn the same amount of money even if I am great player.
    That achievement system that develops my player is uber idiotic. I liked how earlier PES dealt with that. It was fun to develop player while in FIFA it is ALWAYS the same. I like to be striker and I have only 3 YES freaking 3 options to make my stats start from different values! PES always put random numbers and that was freaking awesome compared to FIFA idiotic stat system. Then I am always developed in the same way because my gameplay style is the same so every year fifas experience in terms of player development is the same. THAT IS PATHETIC!
    Also game forces player to be the best! Very early player can get offer from best teams! I remember in PES it was hard to be popular while in FIFA it is like OH you scored 15 goals in season for team in english league 2 so Bayern Monachium want you badly! PATHETIC!!!!!

    They ignored completely bug that is present in importing game face. Player have gum teeth and his ears have no texture making ears look detailed like other players ears on field. Again all they care is that F**** FUT because it is popular between casuals that care only about beating some human through game. Pathetic.

    This game is broken even after the first two patches.
    Goalkeepers are oily, the defence phase is utterly broken (you can score from the kick off or after you concede a goal, by mean of only two dribblings, and in general the AI in defense is firm and does not follow the action with criterion ). Playing against the CPU is terrible because the flawed AI. In addition, each opponent plays the same way: Real Madrid or Sassuolo.
    The new technology gol/not gol does not work.
    Handballs are not implemented, but the options provide thems.
    Results from other matches are not implemented well (often do not start altogether) in career.
    The Career is copy/past from FIFA 13 and 14: EA did no work for a whole year, once again.
    The game pace is too fast at normal speed, fast al slow speed. You can choose a lesser pace by using the sliders, but the AI responsiveness becomes even worse.
    The interludes during the game are too many and often you can not skip them.
    And so on...
    In this state the game is excellent as a basket arcade game. Footbaal is another thing.
    I hope EA comes out with a serious patch and not the usual cloud of smoke.
    I do not recommend the game to football fans.

Passing is the worst thing in any video game for a second year straight at least, makes you want to kill people unless you like losing. Expand

    Worst football game I have ever played. From the coding to playing against russians with 200+ ping. Abysmal. 3 steps on how to succeed on FifaWorst football game I have ever played. From the coding to playing against russians with 200+ ping. Abysmal. 3 steps on how to succeed on Fifa 15. Step 1 Never try to actually tackle anyone because tackling leads to giving the ball to the opposition and constant fouls. Step 2: Use the LB Y button as Real Madrid and you instantly win 15-0. Step 3: Hold down the sprint button for maximum skill plays. If I could get a refund on this pile of rubbish I would. If anyone reads this and hasn't bought the game, keep away.
    The online modes, co-op seasons/seasons, Pro clubs all have delay built in + most of the player base seem to be in 3rd world internet countries like Russia and Mongolia. If you want a football game for the realism I would rather play club penguin as that shows more football realism. Honestly I am not even joking, do not buy it.
    On the other hand if EA were to re market Fifa 15 as a game made as a joke game then go for it. The amount of times I have seen defenders run into each other, the keeper running out to claim the ball and then leaves it for maximum bants. Not to mention the AI which has amazing talent when defending. On top of that the Fifa 15 PC community seems to consist of sweaty, LB Y through ball Real Madrid baddies.

No. There's no online team play - that's 95% of what I play. 2v2 is the sweet spot for this game and it's been removed. Online is ruined for me and so the game is ruined. Bravo EA, last FIFA I'll be buying, you bunch of dullards. Expand
