Summary: FIFA 15 embodies for many critics the idea of if it isn't broken, don't fix it. With minimal updates, apart from its roster of soccer players, the game does not improve on the previous year's entry that much
Top Critic Average
That, perhaps, is FIFA's defining contradiction. EA can quite fairly claim to have again delivered the best football game ever made. But every year the developers seem to have less of an idea what that means.
FIFA 15 is still one of the best sports simulations around, with superb animation and big-match atmosphere.
Strong, handsome and, at times, fantastic, but FIFA 15 still never quite feels like football.
Different but certainly not better, despite the amazing next gen visuals FIFA has never seemed so indecisive and lacking in direction.
Improvements largely concern presentation over play, but they're crucial in making you feel closer to the game than ever. The best football game just got better.
The outstanding gameplay makes any mode a blast to play, and FIFA 15 is the best entry in the franchise.
FIFA 15 is what fans have come to expect, but it wears its changes well
FIFA 15 might not be wholly realistic, but it brings more flair and excitement than any game in the series so far.
FIFA 15's EPL influence runs deeper than its new matchday presentation; it's also a faster, more attacking game.
FIFA 15's improvements don't jump out right away, but they rapidly manifest themselves in smarter teammates, livelier stadiums, and more tactical gameplay. Beyond that, FIFA 15 is still a remarkably polished and complete experience, boasting excellent career modes and a variety of touches like Seasons mode and Match Day Live that remain unmatched by other sports sims. NBA 2K may yet challenge it for supremacy, but for now, FIFA remains the best all-around sports sim on the market.
