At the launch of a beloved football game, the game designers of FIFA 17 promised big changes and improvements from its predecessors. First, we can say, "Adios" to the graphics engine called Ignite. Instead, the graphics have been replaced with better software called Frostbite technology from DICE. You will not forget the name Frostbite because this is the same technology that has been used in wildly popular games like Battlefield 4, Mirror's Edge, and Star Wars Battlefront. All three of these games received excellent reviews of the graphics because of DICE's Frostbite technology.

For EA, Frostbite has unlocked a world of potential for the FIFA franchise because of the rich experience that it offers. You have a new mode called "Journey mode" that is excellently done. You start your football career as a promising young player called Alex Hunter. Alex is a multiracial 17-year-old who comes from Clapham. He joined the Premier League with the guidance of his grandfather Jim Hunter, who used to be an England star in the 60s. It is interesting to see a role-playing story mode set into the game. The setup and launch of the story are solid, and it sets the stage for some of the best moments in gaming.

Outside of Journey mode, the setup looks similar to previous FIFA titles. For example, you can still play a number of football games with licensed teams. You have over 20 Premier League clubs that you can play on, and FIFA 17 throws you into the fast-paced world of football. The game has professional cut scenes, and you have a dialogue wheel that is similar to Dragon Age or Mass Effect. The dialogue wheel could also be compared to the "Be a Pro" mode that you could find in FIFA a couple years ago. Overall, the latest installment of FIFA is sure to impress.

Pros

  • 20 Premier League Clubs to choose from
  • Journey Mode is new and interesting
  • Improved structure to the game
  • Impressive new maneuvers that dominate ball possession
