Did the Frostbite engine improve FIFA?

I actually tried FIFA 16 today and it felt way different than this years FIFA. I was actually able to dribble again lol. I'm not sure if the Frostbite engine is the one to blame. I just don't have enough knowledge about it. What do you guys think did EA make a good decision by introducing the Frostbite engine in FIFA 17 or not? Would love to hear to some proper arguments.

    Frostbite has effectively ruined fifa over the years. FIFA16 did not have the same eye candy but damn it ran smooth.

    When the gameplay is smooth and fair it’s a really good game. Unfortunately, that only happens a couple of times a week.

    Frostbite really ruined the games physicality physics and dribbling has turned into a shadow of its former glory. Truly uncompetitve as of now
  • Perhaps.

    All these bounces, bad touches, rebounds, missed tackles, defenders bloopers ruined all the creativity in Fifa.

    Personally I blame frostbite for the state the games in now. Yes it's better to look at but we didn't have half the issues with gameplay before frostbite.

    I don't think frostbite is a bad game engine, far from it but unfortunately it's not for FIFA and I think that's pretty clear to see.

    The older fifas were pretty bad. It had that stuftter step and nothing but lbys. Then the dribbling and passing and shooting was all out of control. People think timed finishing is bad you could finesse from the halfway line run around the keeping and walk the ball in lol.

    Have to agree without being a complete tech head or software guru I really don't think its been suitable or beneficial to FIFA, gameplay in general seemed to go downhill regarding physics, randomness and just generally be inconsistent and quite bad since its been brought in so I think it has at least something to do with it.

    Which fifa was it where you could run past the keeper and they'd just fall to the floor? 15?

    Near post finish in I think 14 was OP, finesse was even more OP in 12 those good times along with Nilmar and Wallyson

    One of the best features ever added to the franchise. Actually broadened the skill gap contrary to this laughable attempt called timed finishing; but sadly got deprecated.

    Furthermore i'm positive those who used to complain about lby, dribbling, zigzag and NTD were lousy at manual defending, didn't jockey, couldn't backtrack and got easily trounced. And due to a deluge of casuals' tears, now we've got a trivialized game full of bailout mechanics, AI assistance at an all-time high, skill moves made obsolete, mechanic abuse amplified to such degree that the endgame is about timed finesse shot mindgames to bait your opponent in moving the GK so you can slot it in the opposite pocket.

    Congratulations.

    I agree with pretty much everything you say in every post you make. Have you watched Inceptionxx new YouTube video? He just makes by far the most sense to me out of every content creator / community member. He seems to actually know what the hell he is talking about. I can't see how people have an opinion opposite of his.

    Yup, pretty much anyone competent at this game will confirm the dire state we're in.
