    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.

My main criticism comes from the lack of improvement in Career mode and all It's bugs but that will be fixed soon. Expand

    With that outta da wae, I 'll about my experiences with the game.
    I have owned f17 for about a month. The graphics are amazing (even though I play on a 720p tv).
    It's representation of the sport is spot on along with the gameplay. I have learned some tech and skills irl watching replays. My only problem with the football part is the jaggy keeper animations. They feel too disconnected. Keepers irl do everything in one motion. The is some wait time between parts of gk diving. Also some "realistic" features (like diving) were not added. The journey was good. I haven't completed it yet because at one point cutscenes are few and far between. FUT was compelling when sniping and building the ultimate team.Contracts, even though realistic, kept me away from fut for a while. The extra game modes like skill games and especially practice arena are extremely fun and can hook you in! The licensing is great, unlike pes. The gameplay is great. It has a lot of depth whilst being begginer friendly. Skills are extremely fun and dribbling, passing, shooting and crossing feel realistic and good mechanically. Also the gameplay changes are more than welcome.

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.

    i created a user on metacritic just to rate this game.
    after 20 versions of releasing football games, it's just catastrophic from EA to be releasing FIFA with all these issues (some of them available from FIFA13).
    this game is very nice visually and has nice presentation too (however i can't understand why bacca or bonaventura don't have a real face now)
    the inexplicable scripting is the most frustrating issue with the game, sometimes you wanna kill yourself and i have been insulting every developer or tester that passed this game with this huge amount of scripting...it's just scandalous
    the controlled player switching is the second and the super physical strong AI completes the list of the issues that make this game a joke. an ibrahimovic can't even touch a computer controlled insigne
    if only pes had licenses i am sure nobody would have been playing fifa and it's very sad to say this but EA really has to reconsider what they doing because by time, people will wake up and stop buying fifa.
    i can't play PES whatever good the gameplay is because of the absence of licenses but next year i will not buy fifa, i will stop playin football PS games till somoene develops a really nice football game
