Single-Player Career Fifa’s “The Journey” Brings Story

Single-Player Career Fifa s “The Journey” Brings Story

By comparison, the standard Player Career mode feels a little dry and anodyne. There’s a 500GB drive version of the bundle, and the other is a 1TB version that comes with a Ultimate Rare Player Pack. Both bundles are set to arrive on Sept. Microsoft Store. Just last week, Microsoft announced the Xbox One S FIFA 17 bundles that include special offers. To be honest I can properly evaluate almost any mode because In sports video games, I step outside of my box a little. FIFA has a decent number of ‘coop’ modes, similar to Seasons, and I recommend trying at least one of them. As I know it’s, it’s still pretty entertaining, I’d love to see it have a few more layers. Eventually, I love franchise modes and FIFA 17′s career mode is a feature that attracts me lots of all. You have to play a match with one of the most important clubs in a huge stadium, to fully appreciate a lot of the enhanced gameplay techniques and the high level presentation.

The FIFA series has always had great skills/mini games. FIFA 17 is no exception as the exercises aren’t just fun, they actually I could give more detail in the story. Therefore, after you’ve grabbed a few reward cards and opened a couple of packs, challenge yourself by taking on the FUT Team of the Week, So there’re a ton of options. I’m sure that the menu system in this year’s game is a little easier to follow, ultimate Team can be a little intimidating. Whenever using a lot about a defender simply poking the ball out from your feet, The changes feel stark when in possession of the ball. In turn, now this more readily enables the option to play a slower, more considered kind of offensive ‘build up’ than in FIFA 16. Now this take on the concept is done so well, you owe it to yourself to at least give it a look. Some gamers don’t bother with these kinds of modes types, and I understand So there’re different preferences. Like more of a ‘rosetinted’ rendition of the beautiful game as opposed to a wholly realistic one, The FIFA series has always tended be a touch exaggerated.

While favouring attacking over defensive solidarity, and building fantastical lineups through Ultimate Team I’m talking about the hallmarks of the modern FIFA experience, Skills and tricks. Even they are about to outdone by what EA has planned for FIFA 17. As a rule of a thumb, also play a match with two of the worst clubs in a ‘non legendary’ stadium, to gain a deeper comprehension for the differences between ‘big time’ football and the beautiful game on a smaller scale. Sico for the grand spectacle it’s for fans and players, These matches for now so. While The Journey represents a bold exploration into a ‘singleplayer’ narrative, On the pitch there’s more diversity in offense and physicality.

Preferably, you have to match them against one of their rivals so you’ll get the intense crowd reaction and relevant commentary from Martin Tyler and Allan Smith. That’s where it starts getting very interesting. Smith and Tyler deliver solid commentary that helps to pull you into the midst of the grind.

Playing through four or five matches and a few scouting trips might get you into a totally new side of the game, even if you’re a fan of the more ‘quickhitting’ features. The Journey is the new singleplayer, ‘story driven’ campaign mode that puts you in the role of Alex Hunter, an up and coming prospect in the English Premier League. It’s safe to say you’ll never like a story mode in a sports video game, if you don’t like The Journey. These runs are, with the caveat of not having played the final build, the most obvious improvement. It’s a well There’s now a great deal more likelihood of the likes of Paul Pogba or Luka Modric arriving from deep within the pitch to finish off an attacking move. The sport is all about teamwork and when you find a number of teammates who are willing to cooperate, with that said, this can be a rewarding experience. Despite my initial surprise at The Journey’s inclusion, it does fit within the wider FIFA game. Certainly, This is a dramatic offering in a franchise that has always sought to create the most dramatic kind of football possible, and the creative team is clearly hoping that fans of the series are planning to look for to experience that drama in a lot more literal way.


The Mixed Bag Of Characters Are Very Well Voiced But Follow The Most Obvious Stereotypes

No bones about it, therefore this a wild departure from FIFA’s tried and tested formula, particularly for a franchise that has tended to favour small yearly tweaks over grand reinventions. Whenever having said that The Journey is not an entirely original exercise, as sports game fans will already know. The NBA 2K series, that has effectively made EA Sport’s own attempts at a basketball game redundant, has a remarkably similar mode called MyCareer. Online play is as important as anything in a football game, and my experience so far is steady. Hereafter that’s to be expected, that said, this changes if you’re playing against an opponent with a poor connection.

Games start quickly, it finds opponents well and the matches themselves run without lag. You’ll have to get used to getting knocked off the ball a lot more than in previous versions of FIFA, it makes things far more realistic. With naturally stronger players now a lot more commanding, Play is more physical this time around.


There are two huge changes to FIFA the move to a brandnew engine, Frostbite, and the focus on a story lead ‘campaign’. Players will force a header downwards, curl a free kick or twist their body to spray a ball downfield. Seriously. They the total amount of animations, and this makes a visible difference. With facial expressions finally helping players look more than mannequins, The hyper realistic graphics are great.

FIFA 17 is another strong entry in the iconic series, and one that looks to lay the groundwork for future titles by switching to a really new engine. Penalties are given for the slightest touch in the box, and dark yellow cards are handed out seemingly for challenges that shouldn’t even warrant a stop in play. Some familiar FIFA annoyances rear their ugly head again -notably the pesky referees. Therefore, The mode is broken down into three distinct sections. Like in Be A Pro, You can either control that team or, just control Alex. Therefore, The games are selfexplanatory, just typical FIFA matches with the odd tinker to make them fit into the story dynamic. They work well, and the cutscenes are nicely done and look fantastic. Considering the above said. The doting mother, the busywithwork dad, the gruffled flatcapwearing grandad and slightly seedy agent -they’re all present. Nevertheless, follow the most obvious stereotypes, the mixed bag of characters are very well voiced. Known There are reasons to stick with it. There hasn’t been that much added to the others, the Journey is just the many modes in FIFA 17. Ultimate Team is still as addictive as ever, and the career mode is fun if you have loads of time to put into it.

It’s hardly something new, it sounds odd at first having a singleplayer campaign in a football game that ain’t completely about management. Spike Lee even directed last year’s version. With the mode becoming increasingly popular with any iteration, K had been at it for years with its MyCareer mode in the NBA series. There’s nothing more satisfying than successfully finessing a long range shot and have it nestle in the corner of the net, it can be frustrating at times, especially when you think your player is intending to curl the ball into the top corner and he instead smashes it over the bar. There’s a load of new button combos to learn and corners and freekicks are overly complicated. Doesn’t it sound familiar? I often ballooned corners into the box and got increasingly frustrated. One change I’m not so keen on is the ‘set piece’ system. Lots of big match combinations there to keep you going, and as we understand it, the FIFA 17 demo squads might be fairly up to date as well.

All the partnered clubs are present in the FIFA 17 Demo as you’d expect as well as a few ‘off the wall’ inclusions in the type of Tigres, Gamba Osaka and the Seattle Sounders. Know what, I have to give props to EA for how well it’s been done, in many ways it’s just like that. Know what guys, I instantly likened it to some crappy straighttoTV football film, or the laughably bad but also quite entertaining Goal! I too had misgivings about The Journey -FIFA 17’s name for the story mode -when EA first announced it. Trust me Futhead will keep you updated. Futhead broke the news within 30 minutes. Im an info freak and I visit the website/twitter/facebook of ‘EA Sports’ almost every hour. At the most basic point, The Journey is simply a career mode with some fancy acting and an easy story.

That’s far from a bad thing. The way you perform in the matches, and training, helps determine whether you’ll be on the bench or in the starting XI. Next week, To be honest I scored another ‘hat trick’ and my reward was to be sent out on loan. That said, I get the impression that sometimes it makes no difference, and so it’s the mode’s downfall. My team lost, in one game, By the way I played -if you’ll pardon my arrogance -an absolute blinder and bagged a hattrick. The cutscene that followed was full of dejection and disappointment. Oftentimes Penalties are a completely different story, and I actually much prefer the changes there. It takes some getting used to. You can alter your ‘run up’ and there’s far more control. You see, FIFA and PES are now more different than ever, and that’s pretty nice thing, in many ways it’s a resounding yes. I’d say if slightly cliched, The story mode is fun, and you can simply ignore it if it’s not for you, while Ultimate Team is still as addictive as ever. You’ll also be able to sample a teaser of the all new Journey mode which follows the trials and tribulations of fictional football star Marcus Rashford, I mean, Alex Hunter, as well as your standard FIFA 17 Demo matches.


Still something new for us all to try out, It’s only a taste of what the mode will offer. The key word there being ‘from’ as it depends entirely on your geographical region as to when your local Xbox or PlayStation store updates on 13th. We’d highly recommend following your regional Sony/Microsoft accounts on Twitter for all the fresh most recent information on release times. That said, The rig demo gonna be different being that as soon as EA open up the download on Origin, everyone might be able to grab it all at once. Not isn’t a bad thing.was hoping for more options on team management to have more control on game strategy but looks like nothing has changed. Was hoping for new 5 star moves but doesn’t look like there any. The premise of The Journey is simple, and packed with cliché.
