With pre-season well and truly underway, and transfer rumours flying all over social media, footie fans are getting very excited for the 2016/17 season. Konami and EA have already been showing off their entries for the next campaign, and the competition appears closer than ever this season.
FIFA 17 has seen a complete overhaul from its predecessor, with a brand-new engine, new gameplay tweaks and all-new story mode. PES 2017, on the other hand, brings a more refined approach with the incredible strides made last year, 2017 looks to continue that great work with tweaks to passing, goalkeepers and a whole host of new animations.
FIFA 17 VS PES 2017 – VERDICT
It’s still very early days for both PES 2017 and FIFA 17, but based on the first hands-ons, PES has come away with a narrow lead. Its refinement on what was already great last year means we could be in for a truly excellent game of football. Its simplicity while making you still feel completely in control and capable of achieving great moments with the ball is special.

FIFA has introduced some great new systems, but at the consequence of added complexity. It’s an issue that has plagued the EA series for a while, and if it takes the approach adopted for physical play – all mapped to one button – then the game could be better for it.
Will FIFA 17 come from behind? We’ve only got a few months before we find out.
