If you don't have a PlayStation 4 or a Xbox One at home and you want to play football on PC, FIFA 17 is your only option.
Trying to conjure up faults with FIFA 17 is a remarkably hard task.
With its licences, extensive game modes and a clean pc port, FIFA 17 is a great package, but doesn't offer much new.
In terms of sheer number of game modes, FIFA is unmatched, and The Journey alone is enough to warrant a badge of recommendation. Hopefully future iterations of the game won’t just be rehashing the same story told this year. The PC version of the game is having technical issues at the moment, but if these can be ironed out, then the online modes are a great deal of fun too.
An epic ode to the joy of football, but with room remaining for improvement.
FIFA 17 is still a very good game, but it's still a bit of a disappointment. Instead of fixing the various existing gameplay-problems, FIFA 17 rather focuses on establishing its new engine and story-mode. Thus, FIFA falls behind PES because of the overall worse gameplay-mechanics in comparison to prior installments.
It’s a more physical FIFA this year, with greater emphasis on build-up passing and positional movement than one-on-one dribbling. Aspects of these changes can irritate, but the major disappointment with FIFA 17 is its failure to engage with any of the series’ lingering legacy problems, even on a new engine.
