The most popular sports video game is back for yet another edition, and EA has not disappointed. FIFA 17 is fast paced, exciting, realistic, and has some newly added features which ensure that the game is a must have!

Like all editions of FIFA, certain improvements/enhancements have been made in the gameplay, and here we look at the top 5 differences between FIFA 17 and FIFA 16.

#1 Free Kicks 

Free kicks in FIFA have always been useful. Each version of the game had its own techniques to score, and getting free kicks in some positions meant that a goal was more or less guaranteed. FIFA 16 had a pretty good array of free kicks, but FIFA 17 takes this to a whole new level.

FIFA 16 did not have much variety, and only the power of the shot could be manipulated by the user. Although there were a few different varieties of free kicks available, FIFA 17 is in a different league altogether.

The newer game provides a variety of different options, including the approach to the ball, the angle of the strike, the length of the run-up, as well as the precision of power. Roberto Carlos’ famous free kick for Brazil against France can be recreated with an amazing resemblance to the original masterpiece.

A number of different techniques such as Driven free kicks, Knuckleballs, and Rabonas are enabled, and hence the door to scoring great goals has opened a little wider. You can learn all these techniques in the video!
