    We don't need an Arma of a football game.. People will be duping players and spawning tanks in the middle of the pitch.

    The difficulty is required though as some people on here like the way professional plays, whilst me for example hate Professional as it is too easy.
    I think there does need to be much more down though as playing Plymouth in the FA Cup isnt much different to playing West Ham, except the West Ham players will shoot harder and score from their chances, but the game essentially plays the same.

    Same here mate,love the look of it,and really wanted to like this game,haven't bought it though.
    Got a trial version around Xmas to really try it it out,used the OS sliders.
    Can't put my finger on it,but it's not good,it's missing something.
    I think it's the worst game in a very long time.
    Popped in my 16 straight afterwards,and it was such a joy to play.
    Like I said cant put my finger on it,but it's just off.
    EA really needs to step up to provide something else than just a stunning looking FUT machine
    Really disappointed with it,and glad that I didn't bought it,sticking with my 16

    FIFA 16 is a beauty to play especially if you use the FIFA 16 Demo.exe on the full version game along with this gameplay patch. http://www.soccergaming.com/showthread.php?t=194358

    FIFA 16 Demo.exe makes the full version game feel more free and enable custom tactics again which makes every team play differently. Teams like Stoke City playing long balls whereas teams like Arsenal and Barcelona playing posession tiki-taka and teams like Chelsea and Real Madrid plays quick counter. It's a joy.

    And when you combine it with that gameplay patch, it balances out all the momentum scripting shit that EA does and improves dribbling so that you can only dribble with players that actually knows how to dribble. I also noticed AI player with a good long shot attempting more long shots and players with good long pass passing from the back. Also the midfield battle is so pronounced and defending is actually tactical than just randomly smashing the buttons. You gotta position your defense right.

    IMO, FIFA 16 with FIFA 16 Demo.exe and that gameplay patch is the best FIFA to date. Thank god I found this trick on reddit. I can't stop playing FIFA.

    I agree.
    I can't really understand why ModdingWay decided to revive FIFA 14 (given the current state in FIFA's modding community regarding FIFA 17) instead of keep on improving and trying to expand and discover new things for FIFA 16.

    In FIFA 16, can a league or cup tournament be played offline like in PES? I don't do online or become a legend, FUT crap. I just want to play the Premier League against the AI. Is this possible? Fifa 14 didn't allow this...

    Yes you can play a league and cup tournament offline. I had been doing that recently since my gameplay patch and the .exe patch stops me from playing online anyway.

    Had a few more games last night, to see if the update had changed the gameplay significantly. Didn't notice any changes really (the opposition might have stood off a little more, but that may be placebo).

    It's such a weird game - AI players vibrate, rotate 90 degrees back and forth as they move (sometimes 360+ degrees), they hit the ball in fast-forward and then slow-motion... It reminds me of that kids' American football game that just vibrates/rotates players around!


    The AI scored two goals against me last night - the first one was the standard "keeper parries to an unmarked striker", and the second was a bicycle kick from a corner where the ball travelled so fast (with the game set to "slow" and shot speed at 50), the ball had hit the net before the player landed. Literally like someone had sat on a remote's "fast forward" button, but exclusively for the ball.

    It felt like the game "needed" the AI to score, so it just broke the rules to make sure they did. A lot of the goals I concede feel that way, they just seem fake.

    They said before release that the move to Frostbite had been in the works for a few years - which makes me think it might take longer than another year for the game to become less "weird" feeling...

    But I scored a couple of goals I loved - I managed to get a one-on-one and break their defensive line with a through-ball (which I've never managed before really) which resulted in a cool finish, and a good header from a cross right into the corner.

    I feel like it's really close to being the best football game ever - but further away than last year's game was, thanks to Frostbite.

    Oh man! You've just put in words what I've been feeling since release date.

    LOL, sometimes I go round and round trying to explain (to myself and to others) what I think of this game, going on and on, writing long sentences (like I'm doing right now) and you've just expressed it perfectly with such a small sentence.


    Although I think PES 2017 might have pushed EA into the corner, and that might be for the best. They were sitting too comfy for so many years and now they will have to speed-burst a little bit because otherwise PES will slowly start to regain lost terrain much quicker. EA have the tools and resources to get 'there' a lot faster than Konami. It's just a matter of making the right calls, and get out of that comfortable zone they were.

    I still don't know why they changed their gameplay base so much from FIFA 16 instead of just improving FIFA 16's gameplay in a positive way. Ugggh. FIFA goes one step forward and two steps backward like always.

    Because of the switch to Frostbite. Simple as that - they've shoehorned the gameplay in as much as they can but it was always going to mean some gameplay code would be different.

    I trust that EA takes the time to analyze their moves carefully. I guess they decided to make the jump to Frostbite because they knew the game will be miles ahead of its competitor in a year or two, though the curve is steep. I mean, they don't seem to be a company that would just rush into doing these things.

    How do you get the FIFA 16 demo exe to run with the full game?

    I read a post on reddit and how people said the demo has a much better gameplay than the full version so someone came up with the idea to use the demo exe on the full version. It's a lot of copy/pasting from your full version game to your demo version of the game but it's really worth it as it makes the gameplay much more better.

    I'm also interested. FIFA 16 is the best football game ever with we9le imo. The tactics was almost my only complaint. If you're right, then it's really great !

    By the way, do you use any sliders with this demo gameplay ?

    Never played WE9LE but I agree, FIFA16 is the best football game since the PS2 PES days.

    I can't find it but I remember some guy talking about it on the FIFA reddit. You had to copy your full version files to your demo version and things like that and then make sure you launch FIFA 16 Demo and not your full version from Origin.

    Funnily enough, the same guy posted a PES video with exactly the same behaviour further down in the thread.

    I noticed that, but it's a little different - the PES one (from an older game) is two headers being represented by these invisible walls, which looks crap, and leads to a goal I'd be furious to concede, but you can see what it's attempting to do (very badly) - off one player's head onto the other.

    The FIFA one, as someone said underneath the post, is the ball rebounding off the keeper's hand and then shooting off like a metal ball to a magnet so that it reaches the opponent. It's a one-off but it's pretty damning.

    I don't think we'd have seen that pre-Frostbite. There are weird animations every single game - you see people kicking the ball through their own legs. Even I uploaded a video of the AI scoring a Star Wars use-the-force-style header through my player's chest just last week!

    Not FIFA 17 related but I did something extremely stupid.

    I've been collecting all the tournament games stretching from World Cup '98 until 2014.

    I read Euro 2012 was simply an add-on pack to FIFA 12 so I bought it for a couple of quid brand new and proceeded to click on the Euro 2012 section of the menu only to find it's been completely removed from the PS Store.

    Has anyone still got it on their PS3? I know it was paid so I'd gladly Paypal you some money if you can upload the game data somehow?

    Same goes for the last update for PES 2014 giving access to the World Club Challenge mode. Again I know that was paid DLC too so the same applies to anyone that has it.
