VideoGamer: "The latest FIFA can play a wonderful game of football, but a combination of poor on-pitch changes and a lack of investment outside of Ultimate Team hampers the experience."
Oh dear, that's the impression I got from the demo and I'd hoped they would have addressed it. I would be torn between trying to score a nice finish knowing the keeper was probably going to save it, and cutting it across to my strike partner for an open goal to ensure the win, sure I still won the games but the fun factor from scoring wasn't quite the same as previous Fifa games.
No offense to my Canadian cousins, but ea need to give this game to a top european footballing nation to develop.
Well. I said ill give fifa a chance for 2 months. If in that time it fails. Ill sell and get pes 2015 instead. If it is improved!!!
:-/ I find it not to difficult to score, maybe he should turn off assisted for shooting (since most time it goes straight at the keeper) & do what I do use manual for everything, makes the game so much better. (Once you get used to shooting in manual.
I'm hearing a lot of people claiming they have the game & saying it's rubbish because of the goalkeepers. Although the day 1 patch notes say goalkeeper AI has been rebalanced. Are these complaints including the day 1 patch?
I'd like to know it as well. Which one is the busiest forum for Fifa? I usually use GameFaqs, but it simply doesn't work for Fifa...
From the demo I havnt had an issue with goalkeepers. Probably played about 10 games, none of which have ended 0-0. Last game I just played finished 2-2 with me pulling back 2 goals in the second half.
There's nothing wrong with the goalkeepers. It's actually better now you cant just shoot from anywhere & score. I have no problem whatsoever scoring if the player is balanced & on his favored foot he's more likely to score. They make some great saves, but are also prone to mistakes, i think it's fine. I think the main gripe with people is that the game has been so good for years now that they seem to change things for the sake of it to tell us they've actually done more than give us new kits & transfers.
To be honest it doesn't bother me that goalkeepers are like this, i like a challenge. I always find myself enjoying it more when i am playing against a stubborn keeper. I'm not looking forward to career mode though. I'm a single player guy and the career mode is what i play most, i gave up on FIFA 14 and went back to FIFA 13 because i hated the career mode. I don't like not being able to see the stats of the players i am buying, it's annoying. I also think it's time to up the amount of seasons again, 20 seasons would be great.
If you play on World Class or Legendary it is like this every year. I played the demo. I scored twice in my first game. I didn't see these 'issues'. I think it is just people not understanding when to shoot to be honest.
