Of course, we have also national teams at our disposal and last but not least we can play as women teams.
Game Modes in FIFA 16
Just like in all recent FIFA editions FIFA 16 gives the player an opportunity to play in several modes. The soccer fans can play with the computer, or with their rivals also online. We have friendly matches, custom tournaments where one can compete against any team, and a career mode of a manager who will have to lead his team to success but also manage its finances. The aspiring manager thus will have to win in matches but also buy and sell the players, train youngsters and care for the team morale.
The game with each edition gains more realism. A lot of effort is put into recreating the natural movements of the players. And indeed this was achieved in FIFA 16 where the players behave naturally both during the player. while celebrating a goal or when they grab their own heads in disbelief after missing in a great situation.
Realistic Tactical Play
The whole of the match looks realistic as well. Our task is to manage each formation of the team, the defense, the midfield and the forward. They are of course interconnected. Good defensive play increases the chances for a deadly counterattack when the midfielders don’t need to run back towards their own goal. Still, the perfect defensive play requires a lot of skill and practice and makes each match in FIFA 16 a different challenge. Much depends on how the opponents play so we are not forced to play the same all the time.
The Real Players
Much effort has also been put in creating faithful recreations of the looks of the top players. Of course, not every player has his real face. With so many of them in the game that would be practically impossible. However, most of the well-known players look very much like in real life. Just check Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi or Robert Lewandowski.
