Football is undoubtedly known as one of the most popular sports in the UK and the world at large. There are more amateur players than professional ones. But then, that applies to every other sport. If you love the sport and find it challenging to play on the pitch, there are a few options available in video and computer games.
The FIFA games series is currently the most popular football computer game in the world. The game can be supported by various consoles and is available for PC, internet gaming, and mobile devices as well. One of the most unusual things about it is the developer’s obsession with releasing a new version every other year. The downside to this is that there is very little notable difference between the various versions.
The recently released FIFA 20 is the successor to FIFA 19. It can be played in both online and offline modes. One of the notable improvements for the FIFA 19 version was the fact that they acquired full rights to all Champions’ League teams. As for this year, there have been bug fixes in the career mode and improvements in animations. There is also the continuation of the journey mode, a feature which was highly appreciated in previous versions. The journey mode allows one to nurture an aspiring player to becoming a well-established professional player. There is also the ever-exciting career mode that allows a player to manage a team; making little tweaks and bringing in players of choice to compete in leagues with the AI teams. FIFA is also the first significant football video game to feature women’s football.
Pro Evolution Soccer
It is usually abbreviated as PES. PES has been for a long period of time, a tough competitor with FIFA for the best video game in football. This rivalry could be likened to that of Real Madrid and Barcelona or rather Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. It was hard to tear them apart before FIFA made big money investments and went to a league of their own. PES has undoubtedly one of the best gameplay experiences.
Their emphasis is significantly on graphics and recreating a real football pitch experience. Outside the pitch, there is not a lot to talk about. A menu which is not very appealing and themes that look like replicas of what FIFA is doing.
There are actually some casinos using more captivating football themes. Casino games take advantage of the sports craze to create themes that attract people to slots and other games.
That said, players who value slick and smooth passing gameplay opt for PES.
It is compatible with PC, Mac, iOS, Linux, and Android. This makes it quite convenient since it can be played from virtually anywhere. Just as its name suggests, it emphasises more on management modes. It is the most inclusive manager mode game out there, with users managing on-field activities, keeping reserve players happy and even managing the medical team.
Football Tactics and Glory
This is a PC only game. It is relatively new, and its graphics are a little bit off. Despite that, it has managed to bring out a unique feel in its gameplay. It successfully implements the tactics given by the manager to the players more than many other games.
