This year's game is a really good one for football fans. I don't buy into this Fifa v PES thing. Yes, both football games - but honestly, get both, they're both good.
The career mode this year has improved. For example there is now a 15 season version of Be a Pro. However, annoyingly, my team has been drawn against the same teams in the cup at each stage for the whole of mine so far. It seems such an unnecessary flaw.
The accomplishments for your pro and the actual trophies in the game are much better too this time. It feels like EA Sports are starting to understand the trophies thing a lot more.
General game play is superb in my opinion. There have been marvellous improvements to both the shooting and the passing - there is no longer "that angle you always score from on Fifa" and you can finally hit the ball across the keeper. However the keepers do seem to just fall to their backside when an attacker gets a close range header in. The graphics are good, and celebrations are fun.
4/5 overall because although there are great improvements the flaws just seem so avoidable- there is still room for improvement. Still a really good effort from the EA Sports crew, buy it, particularly in January when the squad updates will be needed!
