I wasn't able to play it last night, and I probably can't tonight either. Rather than read everyone's individual topics I thought I'd make a poll to summarise people's thoughts on it.

    Mind you I'm a huge fan of slow tactical gameplay

    First impressions is the attacking offense gets into space pretty easy. Defense stands around while they allow through balls. I fear pace and through balls are going to be the thing but too early to tell and need to play humans.

    Been playing on legendary and it's actually quite fun. It seems keepers on legendary pull of brilliant saves regularly and that's great IMO.

    My only gripe with the demo is how your ST sometimes gets caught way behind the play and ends up playing more of a CM role, yet no one fills the ST space

    Played 2 matches this morning, need to play abit more before forming a proper opinion. First reaction is that it was not too bad tbh, hope long shots aren't too powerful/accurate.

    Just love this time of year, a new game, learning and adapting to new things. It looks and feels good. Roll on early access!

    Yeah it's got nothing to do with that. The ST just has no interest in joining the attack lol.

    Played two games last night, lost my 1St game 3-1 on Wc which is a good sign, shows there's things to be learnt.

    too slow passing wise...you can hold down pass and the ball still trickles to the player

    This is the same as Fifa 16 though - hence why we had to learn to use driven pass for 80% of passes.

    And it's the same for all strikers? Or maybe you were using one with H/H or M/H work rates? :grin: That is pretty poor if true though, it will make custom tactics pretty key if it stays the same on the full game.

    Played 1 and a half games (quit during 2nd game half way after I scored a goal and the first reaction of my player was exactly like previous fifas :( )

    I'll play more tonight and slow it down, coming from fut16 with high tots/toty players :) I'll vote after some more game time

    Good. But everyone has thier own opinion, when you get a chance play it for yourself the make your own judgement.

    If it's anything like FIFA16 he doesn't need to.

    Pace seems to be more important than last year :(

    Other than that it's decent. I don't think driven passes have been changed much at all which is good.

    I settled on 41212-2 after trying out different formations. I also used instructions and ct to see how to make it effectively. As a result, I can beat legendary 3-0, 4-0 almost everytime!

    I am loving it

    It plays just like the beta, except one thing is different, the camera is WAYYY zoomed out, so it took a little bit getting used to, I might move the camera closer to the pitch

    Overall I'm enjoying it - passing feels good to me, the player movement off the ball looks improved and I'm liking that players are staying onside. Also liking the change to corners but I don't know what prompted the need to change penalties - just seems unnecessary.

    Sounds good to me, I had my camera zoomed quite far out on 16 anyway so I could see more of the pitch for more passing options.
