I picked it up from Sainsbury’s today and I’m just about to go play it now, can’t wait!
I thought it was really difficult to put fluid play together in FIFA 17, maybe it was my playstyle or whatever, but I felt like I often scored a lot of scrappy goals, so if they have upped the fluidity then that sounds like a lot of fun.
I don’t mind that Fifa is more arcadey. It’s a game, it’s supposed to be fun, I don’t want every goal I score to be some fucking scrappy League 1 goal or set piece headers, I want to play some good Barcelona/Man City shit, end to end, high tempo stuff. Obviously I want to be able to defend as well and shut up shop if I need to, but it’s important to me as user that I can have fun while playing it. And for the past 3 FIFAs I haven’t felt that. I really miss the gameplay of FIFA 09/10/11/12/13.
Also fuck Ultimate Team and the focus it gets, and fuck all the micro-management bullshit in Manager Mode, if I want to buy Dolberg or Rabiot or Coutinho or whoever the fuck I don’t want to need to scout him for like 3 weeks to figure out they’re an 80 or 85 or some shit. Just let me see how good they are and then let me fucking buy them you fucking cunts. If I wanted to do that nerdy quantitative analytical stats shit I’d be playing FM.
