    All I want is a great career mode. And as I said, that's one area where FIFA 17 stands head and shoulders above its peers. I don't know if that means that it's toppled NBA 2K17 as the best sports game around, but I think, thanks to The Journey, there's certainly a conversation to be had there.

    FIFA 17 is wonderful; the graphics are improved, the gameplay works better and The Journey is an interesting addition.

    An assured, confident outing with barrels of both quantity and quality. Physical play is more rewarding than last year; attacking play's more excitingly incisive, and The Journey's a great experiment. [Dec 2016, p.74]

    The Journey is a smart addition, though it can be a little tedious at times, top-notch presentation and decent performances make the tedium tolerable. The actual gameplay is still enjoyable, but mostly unchanged from previous iterations.

    With much-needed tweaks in visuals and gameplay, some improvements in the career mode and the addition of the Journey Mode, FIFA 17 has retained its place as the best football simulator available on the market.

    The first FIFA in a long time to introduce something new. FIFA 17’s The Journey mode starts strongly but maybe needs a bit more story to make it truly engaging but overall its a nice addition to what is a very good, and immensely detailed, football game.

    The Journey is an almost unqualified success, but in terms of on-pitch action FIFA 17 is comfortably outclassed by PES 2017.

Better physics engine, more realistic movement, realistic illumination. And of course overall realistic gameplay.
    Career mode is the one I play the most, and I have to say I'm really happy with it this year, now I have to develop my youth academy if I want to have my bosses happy, and other stuff that make the 'on the table' gameplay more satisfactory and real.
    I usually don't buy games on launch day, especially on FIFA cause I don't think it's is worth 60$, but I did it with this one cause I won't do it with the 18 19 or even 20 iteration. FIFA 17 is worth the buy, at least for me coming from the 2 years old FIFA 15, but if you come from the last year one I don't think you'll be disappointed.

It added functionality to the through ball, which previously guaranteed the other team would get the ball. Now there is a point to that type of pass. The journey mode is a great addition even if it can be corny. The career mode plays much as expected with few changes from previous years. There are some issues though. There are moments (although not as frequent as some make it seem) of scripting. Moments where no matter what you do you cannot get the ball from the AI and your defense turns to Swiss cheese while all your shots go ridiculously wide. However, these don’t usually make you lose unless you are simply out of time. My main gripe is that it seems like in their goal of making these games feel more realistic, they are slowing them down a lot. The players run, turn, and shoot slower. Sometimes it’s frustrating to try to outrun defenders with players who have at least a 20 point sprint speed advantage. That should not be. The negative reviews simply from EA hatred are pointless. Is it even possible to rate this game a 0? A 0 means it’s unplayable (literally, not just it makes you mad) garbage that people need to be arrested for selling. This, regardless of its flaws, is not that, so stop being dramatic. Terrible. That being said, for all the people claiming to be turning to PES in anger, you’ll notice that game is losing licenses left and right. Have fun explaining to your friends why they have to play as Raül Cogba for Man Reds while I play as Paul Pogba of Manchester United. Expand

The increased physicality means the little speedy guys no longer dominate, which is great.
    But I'm mostly a career guy, and playing against the AI (which is all you can do, since the game inexplicably STILL lacks a multiplayer career mode) is a simply awful experience.

    This game features more realistic physics, which changes the way the plays in variety of ways, butthe physics simply don't apply to your CPU opponent. They buzz around without any sense of weight, fire off hyper-accurate passes and shots, and are completely unaffected by physical contact. The real problem is how they do all of things at the same time. Once, I was dribbling at full speed,and a defender turned around to challenge for the ball, the collision knocked my player back about three yards. The CPU player, who was not affected by the collision, collected the ball and passed it while I was in the stumbling animation. These types of things happens AL THE TIME. Not only does it make the game frustratingly difficult, it looks ridiculous. If this only happened on the highest difficulty, I wouldnt mind, but I'm only playing on Professional.

    Graphically, the cutscenes look great, but the on field action is a step back. EA tryed to improve the lighting this year, but the result is the game actully looks more pixellated than last year.

    Not a good game this year.

    This is only for FUT. Single player and online.
    Don't play Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) if you wan't to enjoy this one. Everything that happens in the pitch is done better in PES. AI, passing, physics and how the ball moves etc.
    Only reason I bought this was the online games, but it's just horrible. There's almost nothing that makes you think this is football (soccer). How the players move. How they interact with the ball or when they hit each other.
    This is like a bad arcade football.
    If you don't believe me buy PES 2016 (last year version). It should be cheap at this point and everything is better in that compared to this new fifa. The new PES is even better then the 2016.
