FIFA 2015 to Have Improved Goalkeepers
FIFA 14 was a game promising much change along with adapting to two next-gen consoles. While still by far the best soccer game on the market, it didn’t play as well as many FIFA fans had hoped. An improvement in defending was there, but what’s a good defense if your goalkeeper is awful? The goalkeepers in FIFA 14 were slow to react to second chance shots, seemed to ‘glitch out’ when in the mix with defenders to a ball among other issues. Watching the World Cup we saw how acrobatic goalkeepers can be, to the point it seemed unrealistic…like a video game. The question remains can and will FIFA be able to re-create the sweeper-keeper style of play Germany’s Manuel Neuer showed us over the past year, a trend many young goalkeepers have began to follow.
FIFA 15 releases in North America on September 23, September 25h in Europe, and September 26th in the UK.
