My Fifa 17 Analysis and Review

My addiction to this game continues and with the epic release of FIFA 17, I am bound to its exorcism again. Because after all, who said that football never changes? This is the question that started the trailer for this year’s presentation of EA Sports, FIFA 17. Something that may also seem implausible in annual deliveries. Far from being a radical change in style of play, football is still football, but this is what has been achieved this year, not bringing a new football title, but thanks to the engine change of the saga the Title is able to bring a more complete experience thanks to the quality in the smallest details that Frostbite is able to bring, the engine of DICE that tries to prove that it is worth for something more than to create shooting games.

Now, FIFA 17 enjoys a hegemonic position in football titles, is the change of graphics engine, the inclusion of news that we were commenting from the past E3 2016 and a more personal story mode with The Journey what the game You need to continue being in the position of king of the video game of soccer? Next in Living Playstation we are going to offer you our review and analysis of the title, even if you prefer to do a survey of our impressions in a somewhat shorter form in our video analysis we encourage you to see it, but remember that all aspects of the title are going to be squeezed to the Detail in the analysis that begins below.

When a Dreamer Creates His Own Story

Far from analyzing the technical section which we will analyze later, then touches on all the playable spectrum offered by FIFA 17. Although it does not seem a real novelty, since the previously known Career Mode already existed in this franchise, the boys of EA Sports have wanted to offer a renewed way with a more personal story. In The Road we will have the opportunity to make our protagonist, Alex Hunter, who comes from a family of professional players from England, start from the humble beginnings to crown him as champion of the Premier League.

All this adventure goes beyond what happens on the playing fields of FIFA 17, as the creation of this character and its history will make us see closely for all the adventures and misadventures that a player goes through until he becomes a professional And is fortunate to create trend and be a world benchmark in the demanding world of football. To do this, since he is very young until we achieve the goal of The Journey, we have the opportunity to forge the personality of Alex Hunter in the conversations that are happening, having the opportunity to behave as a modest player, a correct player or up The most cool and irreverent that we can think of thanks to the system of answers we can give in each given situation.

After making the most of this new content we have to say that The Journey is a good move in the face of offering content for a player that goes beyond playing games and matches, or doing our FIFA Ultimate Team lineups. The only thing we can say not so positive in this way is that, compared to the Race Mode as it was known before, it does not offer the possibility of creating our own player, something that much of the community has missed, and is that Would not be so complicated since all the conversations that follow with Alex Hunter, except for the comments in the parties that over exploit this name in the locutions, could happen with our own created player. Although there is nothing to demean the level of football that is in the Premier League, we are sure that you could do an experience based on other leagues such as The League, The Bundesliga, Calcio and many other famous football leagues in the world.

Superb and Excellent Gameplay

Undoubtedly, FIFA 17 is playfully characterized by two strengths, technique of play and competitive football. Regarding the new techniques implemented in the title we have to say that all the new aspects like the physical game, the throws with stopped ball, the dribbles, the reinforcement of the attack, etc. come to him that not even painted, since last year the one that Had the ball in possession did not enjoy a clear advantage in the attack, even players with worse statistics that the attackers of the opposite showed a clear physical and technical advantage being true strongholds impregnable. As an outstanding matter, there will always be AI, or as it has been baptized as Active Intelligence System, which in the lower difficulties is not a challenge for anyone who has never played a game of sports, and in the highest although you see a football More demanding and controlled, does not stop to follow patterns of behavior that once we adapt to them, just apply and repeat to mark how many goals we want. Although the technical basis of the title does not greatly alter all these new inclusions, they are a real challenge to be followed by those experts who are able to control all aspects of FIFA 17 and that it really looks like what we are seeing Is a real football team. All this is even more enjoyable thanks to the fact that The League enjoys exclusivity in the licensing of Spanish teams, perhaps one of the main reasons why to acquire the title of EA Sports.

In addition to all this, without a doubt EA Sports is the FIFA Ultimate Team, one of the modalities that has been played the year before and this year is not far behind and has also been a victim of the care and Improvements by the developer. We can play in FUT with the Template Creation Challenges, which allows us to face challenges by creating team combinations under a series of rules that give us access to very juicy prizes, and FIFA Ultimate Team Champions which is a championship organization that offers us the Possibility of competing in daily tournaments to win rewards and gain access to the Journey. Those who stand out will have the opportunity to enter the FIFA Ultimate Team Championship Series, the eSports section of the title.

Gaming Strategies

Undoubtedly, the most remarkable thing about FIFA 17 and that has given more to speak this year has been the change of graphics engine, if previously in FIFA 16 the title was run with the base of Ignite Engine, Electronic sports engine Arts, this year has opted for the use of Frostbite, the graphic engine created by DICE, to offer a more than optimal experience both on and off the field.

And is that, just look at the definition with which EA Sports has been able to create the models of all players to see that even the small details are what they do to a big title, and is that this improvement with the engine change Graphic becomes real when we look at the sports outfits of the players, which now look like real clothes more than an addition to the model of the player, but the thing that is not only there. Thanks to the lighting effects we can witness real night football matches, which is where this feature is most noticeable, with lighting effects in real time that do not go unnoticed for anyone. But if we can really highlight a real difference from the previous year, it is the behavioral system and physical impact of the players. In FIFA 16 there were situations of real laughter when two players were entangled with each other to fight for the possession of the ball, even creating occasions of real mockery when we saw how one of the two was dismissed from the fight as if instead of competing against a Player was against a trampoline. Although it is true that in FIFA 17 this feature is very solved, in some occasion has given this situation, but no point of comparison in the number of times we saw in the previous installment. In conclusion, the graphical section offered by Frostbite in FIFA 17 is very satisfactory, creating the real sensation in addition to that we are watching a real football game.

Regarding what is the sound section of the title, this is one of the sections where less innovation is offered, even if it seems a lie, football is still football. In The Journey it is where we will see a good dubbing to Castilian by all the interpreters, but in respect to the parties, although the Spanish commentators Manolo Lama and Paco González do it really well, they do not give the sensation to live the party like when They are heard in live matches, something that happens in greater extent with the English commentators of the Premier League. Luckily, thanks to the personalization system we can choose the commentator that we like the most to have a fully customized football experience.


FIFA 17 again consolidates its superiority in soccer video games, has been able to renew itself graphically thanks to the power of the DICE Frostbite engine. With a story mode in The Journey that will explode our interest to see how the story unfolds and to the success of Alex Hunter and with a multiplayer modes like the online seasons and the FIFA Ultimate Team, certainly the star mode that EA Sports more Has taken care of this year.  Of course, you can always have your best and top players by purchasing them with real money but it could really cost a lot. I will be posting soon a strategy how to do this and get free coins to your fifa 17 but for now, you can really from a good site I know to get your free coins. Just visit to get it today. Technical improvements of gameplay that complement the experience to make this something more complete and subtract superiority to the game in defense thanks to the renovation of the techniques of attack, the AI and the still ball plays much more technical and strategic. At the moment it is the best soccer title that we can acquire that also enjoys exclusive licenses that really make us opt for it.
