The first impression was that it wasn't too hard to pick up and play. By that I mean, having never played a soccer game, I learned the controls very quickly. The layout of the controls is very simple, which I believe is perfect to bring in those like myself. The two key game modes I grew to love were the Ultimate Team and the Career Mode featuring Alex Hunter. The Ultimate Team is something that I as a kid basically had been doing with other sports games my whole life. Allowing you to build a team with players from different squads is so much fun. Especially since you spend, in-game currency to acquire some of these said players. The more you play and win with your team, the more currency you can obtain and the more currency you obtain, the higher rated players can be yours. The opportunities and games are endless with this mode.
The Career Mode featuring Alex Hunter is so well done. It's like watching a movie/tv show unfold, but you get to play a part of it. You being able to control one player's career instead of a whole team really is enticing. I can't speak enough about how this mode keeps me coming back.
All in all this game is amazing. Even if you aren't into soccer or know anything about it, I recommend you try this game. Countless hours of fun come with it.
Especially the all new 'The Journey', taking on breaking through into the Premier League as a footballer. It's a nice change from the generic career mode. Being able to control what your character says in some conversations is a cool addition.
The gameplay is different. I find it more difficult to beat a player using skill or a fake shot. Set pieces have had a huge overhaul and improvements. Once you get used to the new free kick system I think you'll find it a great change.
Ultimate Team has some changes for the good also. The new weekend tournament is a fun addition. Trying to quality for that. Also the squad builder challenges make opening packs that bit more fun because you now may need any card from a pack other than the one or two leagues you use for your squad.
