FIFA 17 Review

I’ve sunk nearly thirty hours into FIFA 17 already and I don’t see that stopping anytime soon. The new engine increases the spectacle of the sport while still keeping true to the franchise. This is a great looking game and easily one of the best sports games of the year.

FIFA 16

Bottom line, FIFA 16 is not a huge step forward for the franchise. The play on the pitch continues to get better and better and the refinements this year are all welcome. I especially was impressed with the overall flow of a match. It continues to get closer to feeling like the real thing while still being one of the most enjoyable sports games on the market.

FIFA 15

The teams at EA Sports are undeniably having a hard transition to the next-gen, but FIFA 15 has weathered the transition quite admirably. Of course we want everything to be perfect in each new game, but then how could they keep us coming back for more each year? FIFA 15 has made enough changes and improvements to warrant an upgrade, and has done so without any yellow or red cards. There will be nothing to complain about when you pick up this year’s best soccer game, other than needing additional controllers so everyone can play.

2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil

This is exactly what I wanted from 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil. It’s a fully featured game of FIFA that has been branded beautifully for the World Cup. If you can’t wait for June for the World Cup then I’d highly recommend checking out this game, it’s really well done.

FIFA 14

FIFA 14 exudes polish from every pore. It's a great all-rounder, able to entertain players of all abilities. Until Battlefield fixes its problems, there isn't a better multiplayer game on PS4 either. Sports fan or no, there aren't many more complete games you can pick up this launch window.

FIFA 14

This is the essence of FIFA 14 – a great package but a hefty sidestep, rather than a leap, as some of its predecessors were. The menus are fantastically designed, accessible and simple, which isn’t a mean feat considering the sheer amount of different modes and ways to play, and make it seem a shinier, fresher product than it is. I suspect that this review is rather pointless, and you already know whether you want FIFA 14 or not, but I can only really recommend if you play a lot of multiplayer, as I do, or are truly desperate for updated rosters. Otherwise, you might as well wait a month or two and see if EA’s next-gen efforts carry the substantial gameplay upgrades this version lacks.

FIFA Soccer 13

There isn’t a better sports title than FIFA 13 out right now, and I include any and all varieties of sports in that claim. There isn’t a single release out there that has the depth, variety and longevity to match it. Whilst the general opinion is that Pro Evo Soccer 13 was a return to form for the flagging Konami franchise, EA have done more than enough with FIFA 13 to ensure that I, and all the other FIFA players who jumped ship when Pro Evo took a nosedive, don’t feel the need to switch allegiances again.

FIFA 07

With the extremely long lists of teams and stadiums, along with a great deal of game modes and new gameplay mechanics, this is really an extremely solid soccer package. For anyone who has not made the transition to the next generation of consoles, FIFA Soccer 07 still makes a worthwhile purchase on the Xbox.
