Glad I got it!
After reading reviews on FIFA 15, I was reluctant to buy this game, glad I did not take heed. I love it. Did not play last years game, only played FIFA 13 and World Cup 14. Only playing the player career, pretty fun. I know some disgree, but thats ok. Im glad I got it.
Horrific 1990's gameplay
Spent so much time refining the game modes (ultimate teams, etc.) that they forgot to make a soccer game where the game play actually resembled the game itself. I used to love the FIFA franchise because they seem to value good strategic, passing play over the arcade-style, NBA JAMS for soccer style which they elected for the 15 edition. You can easily win if you simply pick the faster team and have a decent mastery of dribbling and shooting... no real soccer skill or knowledge required. I guess they're trying harder and harder to appeal to the masses. So sad that this is now a franchise in decline.
FIFA 15 is top 5 worst games I have ever played
This game is so bad. EA have basically crapped on a disc and put it on the market. DO NOT buy this game it is extremely buggy and glitchy. Don't waste your money on this game.
I expected better....
The good: This game is spot on in terms of graphics. If you are one of those gamers who love good graphics, then FIFA 15 does not disappoint. Unfortunately, graphics and presentation was the only real positive about this game. The bad: Where do I even begin? At times, Ultimate Team is unplayable because of EA servers, whether if it is randomly getting booted while trying to build a team or getting booted from a match that you are WINNING resulting in a loss which has ruined records for players. The gameplay is very poor, especially the defending and goalkeeper mechanics. Its as if the programming in the game forces players to make crucial mistakes leading to goals. The only thing EA accomplished was making defending non-existent and goalkeepers even more unrealistic. Also, the biggest gameplay sin, the kick off glitch which allows anybody to just run through a team off the kick off and score which never happens in a real life game. To sum it up, EA did a very poor job of trying to make the game realistic. My last bad aspect is for Pro Clubs players. Too often in drop in games do players pick a position and end up playing somewhere completely different at kick off. What is the point in being able to pick a position when the game slots you somewhere else at random? Sorry for the long winded review =P. Overall, the negatives outweigh the positives and too often the programming in the game decides the outcome of matches. Save your money and get PES 2015.
I´ll stay with the Demo version..
I´ve downloaded the demo version and I think is quite good, nothing that new but you can see some improvements...but unfortunately, that will be the closest I´ll get from this sequel. Without a concrete reason, they didn´t include the brazilian teams on this title and I think they will lose some important sales around here. Yes, playing with european teams are great, they have the best players, the best leagues and competitions but, if you like to play the manager mode, and start your carreer with a lower team (in our case, the teams in Brazil fit to this option) you won´t be able because they don´t know who to pay for the teams/players license. C´mon guys, you´re doing this for too long and now you don´t know who takes care of what ?! No Fifa for me this year, unfortunately!
I like this game a lot. Very fun to play, I recommend this game to everyone who likes fifa. This game is my favorite one so far. The new camera angle is so much better.
Should be as good as always
FIFA has always been the big game worldwide for EA Sports and it has always reflected that in how the game has been upon its release. Seldom do you see bugs and glitches in it and I seriously doubt that will be any different this year. This game is always one I grab and no doubt this years version will be no different. I love all the roster updates EA does for this game to keep it as close to spot on with real life though some of the ratings are a little skewed but hey, we are talking about a video game here. The amount of leagues you have to chose from should be fantastic again even though I have heard that the Brazilian league will not be in this year I still think you have plenty to chose from.
May not have the best graphics but I think it's better than other fifa's out there. Fifa 15 is a cool game to play.
The game was smoother than Fifa 14, but the in the game the ref always calls fouls on me, but never on the opponent I don't know whether or not this is a glitch, but that's why
Excited, but Worried
I liked the earlier FIFA games, I had 14 & played 13. Both games had great game play & graphics; the only things I would change is the ratings of top class players (e.g. Messi, Ronaldo, Suarez). Every year FIFA has Messi on the cover, & hes given a better rating by many percentage points than anyone in the game. This year, I think Messi is on the cover (I'm writing this before a cover is on Gamestop),hopefully he wont be more than 2 points higher than Suarez & Ronaldo. Personally, I think Suarez & Ronaldo are better and deserve to be rated that way.
