You’ve never seen PC soccer like this! Fans of the Beautiful Game love the drama of it all: The displays of skill, the roars of the crowd, the raw emotions of the players on the pitch. For the first time in the series on PC, FIFA 15 is powered by the Ignite engine, bringing the highest level of realism ever seen in a game of soccer. The pitch is amazingly detailed.
When the action gets going, the gorgeous turf shows the effects: torn-up grass and mud splatters that reflect the back-and-forth of high-stakes play. The crowds are taken to a whole new level too, with cheers and jeers from the fans in the stands drawn directly from real life. And the icing on the cake: the color commentary will actually call out fan behavior in real time as it occurs.
It’s amazing how sound can put you right into the game, and that’s never been more evident than it is in FIFA 15 XBOX ONE. FIFA 15 really shines in the actual hands-on play. Players feel absolutely alive as they attack and defend, and you’ll recognize the mannerisms and signature moves of star players like Lionel Messi.
One-on-one challenges will require all of your focus as the Ignite engine brings a new level of ball physics to the game. You want to shoulder barge your opponent? Watch for the shirt pull response as you fight to keep possession. All of the drama of the Beautiful Game is delivered like never before on the PC thanks to the Ignite engine.
See you on the pitch.
If this is your first Fifa game on the new gen consoles then you will be blown away by all the little details that together contribute to an overall experience not too dissimilar to watching football on live television. If you owned Fifa 14 on Xbox One or PS3, Fifa 15 is still a significant upgrade, though maybe not the revolutionary product that it was built up to be.
EA have struck pure gold with Fifa 15, the series is back where it needs to be following the few setbacks of Fifa 14, and this year’s additions have taken it to a whole new level.
FIFA 15 goes conservative this year, by introducing a small set of changes in the gameplay. It surely lacks some innovation, but you can breathe and taste football like you've never done before in a videogame.
FIFA is always at its best when the pitch is tilted in the attacking side's favour, and this year's is a peach. It's not the 'true' next-gen FIFA we've been waiting for, but it's as dynamic and thrilling as any entry in the series thus far.
FIFA 15 it’s a football experience clearly built for new generation platforms but it’s not without problems or sufficiently demarcated from previous games.
We can hope that next season, EA Canada continues to iterate, and strikes a balance between footballing glamour and realizing the beauty and passion of mid-table obscurity, because all football fans deserve the chance to experience a real simulation of the game we love.
FIFA 15 has gameplay problems, but it can also play some sublime football. However, single-player’s continued stagnation leaves a sour taste in the mouth. If goalkeepers can be addressed, EA will remain the football king.
