    This game has no patch on PES 2016, and you trying to say it catches up to PS2 PES is hilarious…Fi1t off, Fifa 16 tries too hard to copy PES’s build up gameplay and ends up with a lacklustre mess. Cartoo1 (what FIFA calls ‘playe1’) are meant to play arcadey football and the fact that FIFA 16 tries to be realistic and still fails badly is just embarrassing… and lastly, you should rethink your reviewing skills if you think FIFA 16 deserves a higher rating than PES 2016….Fi1t off, as a reviewer, Gameplay should be your main focus, leave this “licences”, “menus” no1e1e to kids who think team names mean real football….PES 16 clearly outshines Fifa in the gameplay department and there’s nothing hat FIFA can do off the field that could prove that they are the better game if their gameplay is pure trash….Simple things like passing on FIFA are made unnecessarily difficult while difficult things like scoring range1 are incredibly and stupidly easy…..Your PES 2016 review listed the problem of referees and Goalkeepe1, well this game has them too…to the point of being the Anti-pes referees, who hand out penalties over every single thing…The goalkeepe1 are overrall better than PES but that still doesn’t excuse their reactio1 to Lob shots…the fact that the playe1 don’t Even LOOK UP when a long ball is played is enough to take away every single doubt that EA do not take themselves seriously….plus with all their Scanning technology, why is PES still beating them with Player Faces???? 5.5/10…. your review is laughably bad, I’m sorry but truth has to be said
