    This is a year in which FIFA switches down a gear in terms of pure speed, yet provides marathons' worth of value, if you have the stamina for it. [Christmas 2015, p68]

    FIFA 16 is as close to the real game as players will ever get and continuous support in the way of match day updates and Ultimate Team challenges will further cement it as the best football sim on the market.

    FIFA 16 is better than its predecessor and it's one of the best football simulators in recent years. Improved defense system, truly Next Gen goalkeepers, balanced passes and shots, and brilliant in terms of modes and licenses.

    FIFA 16 might take second place to PES 2016 this season, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a great game. EA Sports usually sticks with the “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it,” but with the soccer genre they have some serious competition.

    Overall FIFA 16 is a very good game, and an improvement on last year’s offering

    FIFA 16 is once more a good football game, though unfortunately it hasn't evolved a lot when compared to its predecessor. It's a slower game, filled with small improvements, dragged down by a shameful online multiplayer (FUT) that needs to be fixed sooner rather than later.

    FIFA 16 has a few nice additions, but failure to fix some of the franchise’s ongoing problems, along with a massive focus on FUT leaves it feeling stale; especially seeing as PES seems to be scoring highly in reviews.

    Very good game so far. Better than Fifa 15, less momentum, better gameplay, no more long passes, the defense and the goalkeepers are evenVery good game so far. Better than Fifa 15, less momentum, better gameplay, no more long passes, the defense and the goalkeepers are even better (in pes they are complete joke). nice atmosphere, good soundtrack and commentary. graphics looks good but they could be better when you look at the order for example. nevertheless its a damn good game, i am hyped for ultimate team. maybe they could bring ultimate team 2on2 or draft mode 2on2 online, that would be funny aswell.
    Draft Mode is kinda hard, because you dont get the tokens in every pack. i hope they make draft for free and not for 15.000 coins, its kinda hard to be honest to win all 4 games. because good gamers will play the draft mode all the time to win the packs, after winning it they should receive nothing and leave draft mode for the weak players. and please make better trophys like make 100 ultimate team matches or achieve 50% in pro club, make it to division 3 atleast to win a trophy because the thophys in fifa 16 arent that funny to make. i liked how they changed the passing, its not x x x x anymore, you need to use ur brain for the pass. shooting is a little bit to weak in my opinion but its okay i will get used to. pes has a little better gameplay with passing and shooting but the keepers and everything else is better in fifa. better package so i go with fifa this year. improve the graphics and a little bit the passing and the shooting and pes cant even reach you. its a really good game and see you next year.

    Fifa 16. the gameplay is just plain awkward, even with amazing ratings in agility, balance, ball control and dribbling you never feel like youFifa 16. the gameplay is just plain awkward, even with amazing ratings in agility, balance, ball control and dribbling you never feel like you are 100% in control of your attackers movement. Defending is made easier which would be a good thing if they didn't nerf attacking play to hell. Every match's outcome seems to be a coinflip and I havent seen any legit ways of dominating a game. Fifa 14 was all about exploits, fifa 15 all about skill (great stuff), fifa 16 seems to be all about chance. Expand
