FIFA video games have been around since mammoths roamed the earth, but only now are they offering equal opportunities to women. FIFA 16 sees the introduction of 12 international women’s teams. It’s this year’s biggest addition to the long-running franchise, which remains more polished than Steven Ireland’s head.
Tuck into an avalanche of official licensing, kits, clubs and stadia. Player likeness is improved. Suarez looks like he’s on the prowl for a tasty earlobe, while Messi is the most compelling pipsqueak on the planet. Players howl and the crowd chants from the terraces. From muddy clothes to match highlights, FIFA 16 has it all.
Gameplay is a mixed bag. Dribbling and passing is a joy, as you change pace and sneak around opponents. Fighting for the ball is a different matter. Sliding tackles rarely connect, even when drafting together a super squad in Ultimate Team mode.
