More than 250 million people in over 200 countries around the world play football (or soccer as our American friends like to call it) and probably billions enjoy watching the game. Because of this popularity, it is not surprising that FIFA (the International Federation of Association Football), has a licensed an official video game based on the sport. FIFA 17 is the latest in this hugely successful series of games.
FIFA 17 features real life teams and players and lets you get deep into the game. In FIFA 17’s story mode you take control of Alex Hunter, a young prodigy looking to make it big in the English Premier League.
You must make the right decisions both on and off of the field. Your success depends not only on your performance playing in the games, but also on what you do when you’re not playing. What you do off the field will determine how your teammates and other players react to you, which makes the game much more realistic.
Playing the game, you can choose any one of the current Premier Leagues club to join. You can also choose to play multiplayer, where you can go head to head with your friends or people online representing your favourite clubs.
FIFA 17 adds many improvements to the gameplay and engine which the game runs on over previous incarnations of the FIFA series. One significant improvement that has been made is new ways to attack. Your offense will be stronger than ever now as there are more ways to create chances and strike at goal.
Another improvement is in the game’s AI or Active Intelligence, system. With the new and improved intelligence, the computer controlled players are smarter, and are able to analyse the environment around them to make smart decisions and reactions.
Overall, this release in the FIFA series brings a big improvement in gameplay and makes an essential addition to the game collection of any serious football fan. Visit the Amazon page for more details and reviews here.
FIFA 17 is available on all the main consoles, including PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and, of course for the PC.
