FIFA 16 Review

Football is a beautiful game played across the entire planet, even known to some as Soccer, but that’s another story in itself. The sport’s most recognized video game for a number of years has been FIFA, a game offering all sorts of different ways to play the sport, and without doubt my favourite console game of all time.

EA Sports’ newest title, FIFA 16, has been met with a pretty mixed response ever since the release of the demo. Some gamers would suggest that the game offers an alternative to the usual pace-orientated gameplay, I am one of those people. Although, it could also be argued that the game feels a bit scrappy and even disjointed to play at times, a fairly accurate criticism it must be said.

This year’s game has developed many of its previous game modes, building new features into career mode and the likes, but the introduction of FIFA Ultimate Team Draft is the REAL exciting feature this year. But aside from the draft many fans will have been expecting other specific changes, but did they get their wish? Let’s find out…

 

Amazon won't let non-Prime members buy certain games

When it comes to pre-ordering games or outright buying them, Amazon has become one of the easiest methods of getting your hands on a product. Unfortunately for gamers, it appears as though Amazon is locking video games behind the Amazon Prime paywall. 

According to VideoGamer, the $99 a year paywall has apparently made the PS4 versions of GTA 5, Rainbow Six Siege and Assassin's Creed Syndicate, along with the PS4 and Xbox One versions of FIFA 16, Far Cry Primal, Battlefield Hardline exclusive to Prime members. 

"One of the many benefits of Amazon Prime is access to exclusive selection on a number of great products," said an Amazon representative in a statement to VideoGamer. "Customers who are not Prime members can sign-up for a 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime, or they can purchase those items from a Marketplace seller."

Whether Amazon will continue to spread its reach to make other games exclusive has not yet been revealed.

Note: This only effects the games sold by Amazon – not third-party sellers.

They've had one win in 26 years, but San Marino fans demand FIFA 17 representation

San Marino's national football team has grown accustomed to goal droughts, heavy defeats and losing streaks over the years, but their fans still believe they should have representation on FIFA 17. 

A group of San Marino fans have started an online petition, with the hope to force their way onto football's biggest game next year. 

The microstate has never had a playable team on any of EA Sports' previous FIFA titles, and with only one solitary win in the last 26 years, it certainly looks unlikely to happen any time soon. 

However, for all of San Marino's shortcomings in recent years, they certainly know how to celebrate a goal – as you can see in the video above. 

While many football fans might brush off their argument for being included in next year's FIFA 17 game, there is no doubt that some gamers would fancy the challenge of controlling the San Marino team and challenging people online. 

So, if you would like to 'Make San Marino Great Again,' for lack of a better expression, sign the petition to get them on the game!

You never know, it might just work.

FIFA 16 to join EA Access later this month

The latest game to be added to the EA Vault via EA access on Xbox One and Origin Access on PC is FIFA 16, according to Eurogamer.

 

FIFA 16 is the latest installment in the fútbol franchise which released last year on September 22 . The game is reported to make its debut in the vault on April 19. EA Access launched a couple years back on August 11, 2014, and has since been bringing a plethora amount of AAA games like Titanfall, Dragon Age: Inquisition, and Battlefield Hardline.

 

For $4.99 a month (or $29.99 for the year), subscribers will be able to play an "evolving collection" of EA games on Xbox One. EA also offers trials that will be different for each game and any progress you make will carry over so you can pick up where you left off on launch day. "In some titles, you’ll be able to play one of the game's modes for a limited time, while other times you can jump right into the full game," the company explained.

 

Memberships for EA Access can be purchased on Xbox One through Xbox LIVE, and at retail stores like GameStop.
