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…

 

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.
