    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.

    I 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? 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.

    To get one thing out of the way quickly, there's no way, at all, by any standard, this game should score less than a 5 from anyone. I can sortTo get one thing out of the way quickly, there's no way, at all, by any standard, this game should score less than a 5 from anyone. I can sort of understand a 5 or 6 as perhaps people are a bit blunted by the iterative nature of FIFA and the lack of substantial improvement to modes like Career and FUT, so the standards you expect on a yearly iterative game may differ substantially to mine.

    But the core game itself is fine (odd random bug aside) with improved AI movement, greatly improved goalkeepers, a smarter aerial system where headers aren't the equivalent of a cheat mode and, last and least importantly, the graphics.

    The scripting arguments are, as per usual, stupid, but it's going to happen when a shot hits the post late on or you concede a scrappy goal, because nerd raging at the game itself is easier than looking at where you got it wrong. It's common in the Football Manager community too, it's the nature of the beast with sports gamers.

    As noted, bugs exist. I've played the PC and PS4 versions (the PC version, barring FUT, is probably the superior version surprisingly), and frame rate issues are real at times and ruin immersion in the game.

    But there's nothing inherently wrong with this title. Metacritic, for all its' plus points, will never reflect with a user score the games quality, so my advice is to ignore what everyone here says (including me) and play the free demo. You'll know inside 5 minutes whether you rate it or not.

    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.
