Wishlist: 4 FIFA 16 Beta Issues To Be Solved
The main purpose of FIFA 16 beta is to test the game. It’s for players to try out the game mode and give the developer feedback on anomalies they might find. The issues is certainly there, however, as it seems, the company has put in a shift to make sure those problems of the past don't surface again, and here are the top four fixes to the game's beta that will be welcomed by the fans with open arms.
More Involved Goalkeepers
One of the major talking points from FIFA 15 was the buggy goalkeepers who didn't want to move. EA knows the situation with FIFA 15, and has made sure that FIFA 16 is a much brighter prospect, as far as solidarity at the back is concerned. No more will players be able to pass the ball past the goalkeeper so easily with FIFA 16, since they will be denied by the vastly improved GK reflexes and punching abilities. There's no question of edging a cheap goal in this FIFA, that's for sure.
Complex Passing = Rise in Competition
EA has made some considerable changes to the way players pass the ball and keep the play in midfield. In the past, there have been instances where players shift from defence to attack in the blink of an eye, cutting out the midfield battles that are so prominent in real life. For FIFA 16, passing will be tough to master, with players required to be more focused on the ball and judge a pass carefully before making it. This may take a bit of time to master, but remain confident that it will surely take some players by surprise who aren't concentrating on the game.
Defenders Are Up for a Fight
For FIFA 16, EA has introduced a realistic defensive mechanism that will now make it even harder for attackers to evade them when rushing towards the goal on the counter. For FIFA 16, defences will be solid, strong and boast a presence that will make attackers and midfielders think twice before orchestrating a play in the middle of the park. For the new game, strong defensive players will have a similar virtual representation, and remain confident that scoring a goal past them won't be as easy you think.
Short Cut-Scenes.... Are Actually Short
There's no other way around this one. We hate cut-scenes in a game such as FIFA. Sure, cut-scenes form a great feature for a number of other titles in separate genres, but in a FIFA title, it is better if the cut-scenes are kept to a minimum – simply because we are not interested and want to play the game as soon as possible. For FIFA 16, cut-scenes have indeed been kept to a minimum, meaning players will be saved from the entire mad button-mashing just to kick off the game. We are impressed, EA!
