On 4 September 2016, EA Sports announced at Brasil Game Show 2016 that 18 Brazilian first division teams will be featured in their respective league (Corinthians and Flamengo, who signed an exclusivity deal with Konami, do not appear), and 5 second division teams will be found in the Rest of World menu.
Penalties are a different story, and I actually much prefer the changes there. You can alter your run-up and there’s much more control. It takes some getting used to, though.
Similar to the gameplay seen in NBA 2K and MLB, The Journey lets you play as Alex Hunter starting at tryouts and working your way through to your Premier League debut. The main characters in The Journey are all played by motion-captured actors and you can choose different conversation options to influence Hunter’s personality.

There is no better sight in football than signing a young starlet and watching them progress to the next level.
Being consistently good can bring its own problems. Among the highlight gameplay changes in this year's FIFA we have: better throw-ins, low driven shots, and the ability to control the ball from a long keeper kick. Welcome improvements, sure, but still, pity the guy making them sound exciting in the press release.
Highlight features of Fifa 17 include Journey Mode and the ability to better control shots. The Journey is in addition to Ultimate Team.

It’s exactly the same when you’re playing career mode on FIFA 17 too.
If you’re familiar with the slow pace, defensive focus and intricate button combos of FIFA 16, you’ll feel right at home with 17. If you’re coming from PES, then things might feel a bit complicated. In PES 2017, things happen naturally. The game cleverly knows if you’re trying to dink the ball over the top of defenders with the outside of your foot. In FIFA, you have to do all this for yourself.
EA have written a completely new set-piece system that adds another layer to the skill gap. It allows you to select the area in which you want the ball to swing into, providing a greater lever of control. You can also select a player and move them as you wish; really giving yourself an extra advantage at free-kicks and corners.

PES2017 on the PS4 is fantastic, the gameplay wins hands down. Fifa only wins with licences and presentation.
At the most basic point, The Journey is simply a career mode with some fancy acting and a simple story. That’s far from a bad thing, though.
The mode is broken down into three distinct sections: games, training and cut-scenes. The games are self-explanatory, just typical FIFA matches with the odd tinker to make them fit into the story dynamic. You can either control the whole team or, like in Be A Pro, just control Alex.
For me, the only thing missing in the past was the ability to drive low shots across the 'keeper. You see these goals a lot in real life but it was next to impossible to do. The developers noticed this and it is extremely effective now. Good news.
The passing on FIFA 16 was so unpredictable it was infuriating, but thankfully on 17 it's much better.

In the incredibly unpredictable world of football, FIFA's regular yearly launch provides us with a nice bit of stability. But in possibly the most odds-defying 12 months of football I can remember, can the latest update to the beautiful game's most popular sim still stand tall against the fantastic PES 2017?
It can be frustrating at times, especially when you think your player is going to curl the ball into the top corner and he instead smashes it over the bar, but there’s nothing more satisfying than successfully finessing a long-range shot and have it nestle in the corner of the net.
FIFA 17 is another strong entry in the iconic series, and one that looks to lay the groundwork for future titles by switching to a new engine. The hyper-realistic graphics are great, with facial expressions finally helping players look more than mannequins.

The story mode is fun, if slightly cliched, and you can simply ignore it if it’s not for you, while Ultimate Team is still as addictive as ever.
Each year this changes. The main issue is one type of shooting is always so much more effective than the others. For obvious reasons the developers then correct it on the following edition, but unwittingly they'll make another shooting method too effective. See lobs or curling shots in previous games.
