  • Summary: Games are won and lost in the midfield - in FIFA 16, the midfield matters. Stay in possession with patient build-up play or ping clinical passes through space to start an attack.

    FIFA 16 can be stubborn and stifling, but it feels gloriously new, and having to learn fresh strategies and nuances in a game series like this is an almost-forgotten pleasure.

    Looks like FIFA 15, but it's a better game. FIFA 16 improves the gameplay and is on par with PES 2016 again.

    FIFA 16 may be the best solution, this year, for anyone looking for a football sim on the PC platform. This is mostly a result of its competition being a very bad port for PC and EA Sports playing it safe when it comes to the franchise. There might not be vast improvements from its predecessor, but FIFA 16 does have some, resulting in a game that is an awful lot of fun to play.

    Gameplay changes are substantial, but not always in the right direction. Nevertheless, the new FIFA is still a very robust and rewarding production. FIFA 16 is not a blast from first match but gains our respect with each season.

    All these adjustments to animation, dribbling, and shooting lead to what EA is calling Moments of Magic, which feels like a misguided attempt to define something that’sbeen part of FIFA for years.

    Still the best football game you can buy for your rig, but FIFA 16 feels unambitious.

    Something of a return to form after 15, but sooner rather than later EA will need to stop re-arranging pieces of their existing code and actually develop a properly new and substantial FIFA engine.

    Best football game in the market, PES has again lost against FIFA. It has improved everything that was poor made in FIFA 15, added new modesBest football game in the market, PES has again lost against FIFA. It has improved everything that was poor made in FIFA 15, added new modes to FUT and career mode. It's fluid, slower which makes it realistic and the visuals are great.
    If you want a great football game, this is your game.

    All the players online play roughly the same teams. IT is a MAJOR dont give a **** from EA.

    If your are like me, you where itching to buy the new game to try it...BUT I"M WARNING YOU. DON"T SPENT MONEY, OR WAIT WHEN IT IS VERY CHEAP.If your are like me, you where itching to buy the new game to try it...BUT I"M WARNING YOU. DON"T SPENT MONEY, OR WAIT WHEN IT IS VERY CHEAP. We don't love FIFA, we love the potential FIFA has, remember that before buying. People with bad reviews are the die hard players, the good ones are from people who played 10 hours and than bought a shooter, or are little kids. Let me explain.

    The game engine dictates if you will win or not.....Yes, sounds strange right? First there are random passes, See 2 guys free, it sometimes passes to a defender not in the screen. Than you have the the passes are not consistent. Sometimes they will be passed in front of the player sometimes behind the player, sometimes to nobody. And I'm a great passer, prefer to play without assistant, but online it is impossible to win in the higher leagues. Fouls can be very random. Shooting, sometimes it is hard, sometimes i pressed the button longer and am in the same position, but is a weak shot. Another thing ALL BUGGS FROM FIFA 13,14,15 ARE STILL IN THE GAME. Didn't improve a thing. Basically they changed the player stats, made them look a bit nicer, added a new passing feature that is far from being finished, made strength more important than speed (a 90 speed player can be outrun by a 45 speed defender?????) and they had a new game.

    Online you ask?? Same problems, plus a lot more! People still abondon the match and you will not get the points. But there is something new. The engine has a huge error somewhere that disconnects you during a game (average 1 in 5 games sometimes more). EA knows this, but they don't fix it. Like always......

    Conclusion, everything they promised to fix, is left alone. Everything they actually try to fix is done in a way that made even worse than it was. The game isn't more real, the game is badly written. This is one of the few games in this age where when you loose while doing everything perfect.... They get that one point for the graphics. Although still a bit outdated for 2015???? Probably saving it for FIFA 17,18,19, because how are they gonna sell the game otherwise.

    PS: if you are a football/soccer fan you will not like this game. Every basic move (passing, shooting, controlling, etc.) is messed up. Safe yourself money, time and disappointment and buy a different game. Play beautifull??? it is more play awkward.

    most inconsistent PC game I have ever played. DLC packs are a total ripoff. and to top it all off apparently Inform and Non day 1 cards have broken chem so they were never worth more than a non inform card.lying, cheating company. they would rather steal your money and lie to your face than fix their broken POS

It just gets worse each year. It's at the point now where it's really a footy mgt game without most of the mgt aspect(!) as you have no control over the outcome. You pick the team sheet sure, you have that "freedom". But in reality there's no guarantee an 88 rated player won't have his stats dumbed down to oblivion nor a 52 rated players boosted to Pele status. It seems each players stats just go into some random number generator for the each game, changing perhaps only around the 40-45m mark or 85-90. Very predictabl Expand
