    I've not noticed a thread about the video game, where would it be?

    I use a PS4, a few of our players are annyingly not included, including Tom DB. What I do is spend some time to create the players I'd have liked to be in the game.

    I know the game isn't a perfect representation of football, it's just some fun, innit?

    Went to go buy it this morning from Tesco's and the customer service section was closed. Loads of people were being turned away, missed a trick there.

    Gonna wait until December when Xbox Game Pass and whatever the EA version merges so I get it for free, not worth the £50 each year!

    Xbox player here. Fired it up for a game or two on my lunch break.

    Whilst my offline play seemed fairly enjoyable, it didn’t seem like there was too much movement on previous editions...

    The true acid test will be playing it online as this is my preference.

    Looks like they ditched fitness cards in FUT which is welcome as always been a total coin drain.

    Looks the exact same as last years, which was pretty crap. Won't be bothering this year

    I disagree, the defending is different to begin with, will need practise to be any good.

    I just play career mode. A few transfers needed to be done, including Doucs and Bobby P still in the squad, and needing to get Sema and Ekong.

    The coaching is more FM in it being kinda detailed with changes of position etc.

    I like it show a -6 or whatever when a player is out of position. Hughes is -2 as a CM! Bizarre.

    Not played it enough yet though to give a decent review.

    EA Sports ? You don't say Ashdon. I'd rather stick my face into a glass window than touch anything created by them. The ruin of many a decent franchise and development studio. SOS every year. New this and that which was in there previously but is now reworded.

    It's a terrible game and EA Sports are a terrible organization. Electronic Arts in general. Stultifying development and suffocating competition by legal means or buying them out. No better than most giant corporations. And using peer pressure to make fortunes for their dreadful products with all that FUT garbage.

    Same to both, I find defending slightly bit clunkier than previous but the attacking AI is far superior to 20. Can see a lot of high scoring games in this edition.

    I'm waiting until after the update on the 16th before firing up a Watford Career Mode, that way all players will be in the squad.

    Finally completely tapping out this year and not putting any more of my money in the pocket the plague on the industry that is EA. Downloaded the 10 hour trial, played for about 3 hours, then thought "this is f**king awful... again", uninstalled it, and instantly felt a lot better about life.

    It's just incredibly dated at this point. Are there a few minor improvements? Yes, but it's still effectively the same game that it's been for YEARS. The same bugs, the same flaws, the same frustrations, and the same complete lack of genuine evolution in anything other than Ultimate Team, which is all they care about. The animations, the graphics, the physics, it's all just crap and has hardly changed for so, so long. I actually went back and played the FIFA World Cup 2014 game on PS3 the other day and it's actually laughable how similar it is.

    Find as many ways to addict people to Ultimate Team gambling. It's all EA is bothered about.

    Say it quietly but PES 20 was a far better football game last year.

    It was. Not without it's flaws either but much better. Gonna get PES 2021 on PC and try out some mods.

    Isn't it pretty much the same every year? I used to buy it religiously, before realising it's actually crap.

    Basically. With a few small tweaks, but they know people will lap it up, so why bother I suppose?

    Their latest plan seems to be to add features to career mode that used to be in the game but they removed. They've added the ability to hop into a match while simming it, which I believe was a feature way back in 2007(?). So lazy.

    Nothing will be better than FIFA WC 98 and the indoor 5-a-side mode.

    Rivals is a car crash, put me far higher than my actual skill. Not fun.

    Only really play fifa to do co-op seasons with my mate. Cba to buy this whilst I can still do it on the old game.

    The games seem to be getting progressively worse with more ******** happening each new game.

    That was awesome. Went with Austria (randomly) and used to destroy the 5-a-side mode!

    Switched to PES last year and couldn't get on board with it at all. It was incredibly frustrating how long it took players to do any action after pressing the button. Back on FIFA this year and while gameplay is basically the same I do like the long overdue career mode changes.

    PES6 was great. I did a lot of work on option files for South America and young players. Facemaker and stadium modder. Juce was and is a legend for his kitserver now replaced by his and Neca's slider for PES2019 onwards. You can mod anything for the PC now.

    Speaking of PES2022 it will be using the Unreal 4 engine. Apparently development work has been in progress for two years in conjunction with Sony providing hardware specs for the PS5 so Konami can make best use of it. The same engine will operate on the PC platform as well which is great news.

    It may well look like. As Spoony says the company Visual Lane is using Unreal 4 for this VR presentation of Old Trafford. Amazing detail and changes in real time ie shading, lighting and weather. Can't wait to see Vicarage Road recreated by someone. :p The visuals should be spectacular I just hope the AI, Masterleague is improved significantly.

    Catching up the renders of yesteryear:

    Constantly get the backhanded "intimate venue for todays game" at the vic.

    Also they had a snowy pitch - whereas the real vic is heated. Unplayable. 2/10.
