FIFA 16 Review

FIFA is back and games like this are often criticized for lack of innovation in between instalments but what do we really want? It’s football and Fifa gets better every year in my option, this time Women are IN THE GAME. You’ll be able to compete as 12 Women’s National Teams, for the first time in the FIFA franchise, FIFA 16 delivers a balanced, authentic, and exciting football experience that lets you play like you’ve never played before. You’ll be able to compete at a higher level. Confidence is key in the new Defending, You’ll be able to take Control in Midfield with the new passing moves that makes it harder to find that right ball to the strikers.

When Fifa got released I could’t wait to play it and be better then all my friends again… So we all think….right? Well we all know the game takes a few hours every year to get used to, this year there is alot of good changes. As for game modes I’ve never been a massive fan of Ultimate Team but it keeps the players playing and paying all year round and its hugely popular among alot of fans. Lets be honest the idea of owning all the best players like Donald Trump is bitter sweet! There is of course Manager mode, Be a Pro and the rest like previous years.

With EA you always know you’ll get the best in Sound Experience along with the best type in music and sights Featuring 900+ chants. 450+ new or updated starheads and of course lets not forget the commentary.

The graphics are next to out of this world. It’s crystal clear crisp textures make it a joy to play and watch. It’s the big difference from Fifa to Pro evo and I feel it’s Important. From the clothes movements to the hair you really tell EA have gone all out this year, great job!


Lets talk defending. FIFA 16 gives you the tools to stop your opponent with confidence. You can move with greater freedom as a defender unlike before and you’ll be able to rely on your team to defend as a unit, and your back line to track menacing runs to create a better balance between attacking and defending and of course there is Defensive Agility… What’s that you might be asking? Fifa 16 has a new suite of 25 feature changes to defensive locomotion creates agile defenders that track attacking opponents. Defenders are able to seamlessly close down space and change direction using swing steps, creating balance in 1 v 1 situations. Defender acceleration time to top speed and greater freedom of movement help defenders stay with their opponents as they look to break up attacks. Always Remember the key to defending is of course Defend together, win together.

Now you know more about Defending in Fifa 16 let’s get onto the new control in midfield you should know by now games are won and lost in the midfield in real life and in fifa. With Fifa16 you’ll need to try and stay in possession with patient build-up play a much as possible it’s not all about flinging forward anymore. You’ll need to play like a real team now pass and move and that makes this one much better then previous titles for insentience players now anticipate passes and move to shut down options and close passing channels. Smarter team mates will look for space and allow more opportunities.

Finally strikers… Where everyone wants to play growing up.  We all know In football there is nothing more beautiful than scoring a well-earned goal nobody likes a cheap goal.. Well part from the person who scores it of course.. In FIFA 16, changes to dribbling, crossing, and clinical finishing aim to ensure that every goal a team scores is unique and earned. Strike the ball right and finish like a pro. Players will feel the difference in each shot attempt and better understand why a particular shot has taken a specific trajectory. Miss a chance and you’ll be able to adjust your approach next time you’re in on goal. Newly defined orientation of the foot and ankle opens the door for greater variety in shot types and will result in more exciting goals.

I’m sure you’ll produce more Moments of Magic than ever before. As the title says Play Beautiful.
