It’s in the game. A very good looking game!
Bored of FIFA year-on-year not seeming to different from the previous game? Well, FIFA 17 is set to ring in the changes. Plus, new additions to FIFA 17 Ultimate Team strengthen this year’s game.
A new game engine, Frostbite, which is used in the Battlefield series improves the visuals dramatically. The gameplay changes will also seemingly change the way we play the game forever.
Hold-up play is now actually possible, and better still, realistically implemented. Finally we can play a long ball to the striker, and instead of an always 1v1 battle in the air, players can hold L2/LT and attempt to shield off the defender and bring the ball under control with his back to goal. It is one of those features that when you see in action, will think “why hasn’t this been in the game before?” I cannot wait to get my hands on this feature. Check out the physical overhaul video to see a bit more of this in detail!

Active intelligence is also a much welcomed improvement. This isn’t just whilst playing the AI, despite this also being improved. The higher difficulties won’t keep the ball just for the sake of it in FIFA 16, they will try to be more direct to give us a better chance of winning the ball.
