    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.

    FIFA 15 compared to it's predecessor, is in almost all ways better. The visuals are excellent, best licensing in a football game, the gameplayFIFA 15 compared to it's predecessor, is in almost all ways better. The visuals are excellent, best licensing in a football game, the gameplay has moderately improved, the soundtrack is one of the best so far, and there are more features. However, despite all that, this game has some severe flaws, which luckily seems to be what EA is working on in the next game. The main flaw is in the defensive gameplay. While playing this game, I have noticed what many have, which is that the defensive AI is distressingly incompetent. The reason I say this, is because the defenders do not mark players properly, tackling is very weak, and somehow defenders are able to catch up with players which have high-level pace. In addition, there are more AI problems. When you go up against the World Class and Legendary AI in the game, every team you can think of, suddenly has the same skill and speed as a five-star team (ex. Real Madrid, Chelsea) and that is unfair to the player. After getting passed the learning curve, you can beat the AI, but their aggressiveness is annoying to deal with as they pull on you shirt without getting a foul/booking and they constantly time waste towards the end of the match, when the score is on their side. In Ultimate Team, price ranges have been recently added, and I fully support them, but they do need an overhaul. Finally, many players have complained about the EA servers, and nothing has been done about it. In this review, the positives and negatives of the game have been highlighted. The reason I focus on the negative a bit more, is because these are problems that need fixing. In conclusion, this game is a major improvement in the FIFA series, but it still yields some problems that have not been fixed since FIFA 14, or new problems that need to be fixed. Good news is that EA are working on defensive AI for the next game, FIFA 16. Thank you if you made it this far, I hope this was informative. Expand

    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
    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.
