FIFA 15 – Honest Review
FIFA 15 has been released almost two months ago and I had hard time forcing myself to write about it. I have a great dilemma when it comes to this game: at times FIFA 15 gets closer to the real football than ever and just after that, it seems to be a long way from capturing the flow, ebb, nuance and magical unpredictability of this sport. In addition, the similarities with FIFA 14 are unbelievable, although themes and backgrounds are different. So, if you’re tired of the old visual aspects of the franchise, buy cheap FIFA coins and give FIFA 15 a try. I think that any annual sports franchise is cursed, because the developers have to find the way to justify the existence of a new edition. Furthermore, changes have to be more than minor visual tweaks and roster updates. In some regards, FIFA 15 have significant improvements compared to the last year’s game, still there is a step back in others. I have to admit that sounds are quite realistic and you can see every change in the environment while you playing: the crowd booing your team or chanting, the commentators speaking about your moves etc. And if you are a fan of some smaller Premier League club, chances are you’ll be overjoyed to see your team treated with a respect usually only seen with the biggest sides. Other players might have the problems to shake the feeling of disappointment.
What annoys me most is that FIFA 15 could have been brilliant game. The presentation and different modes are top notch, but the online game-play absolutely does not function properly. Since we don’t have much better alternative, I think we’ll continue to play this game, it’s acceptable. Nevertheless, I think that PES 2015 might win the cup this year. Still, I’ll keep playing FIFA 15, hoping that this year’s lack of creativity and essential improvements will force developers to make a better game next year.
