With the next generation of Fifa being launched this week on the 24th in Europe. I thought I would take the time to list some games that I believe any Fifa player would enjoy. For some years now I have been an avid Fifa player, much to the detriment of my other work, so I feel I should be able to appeal to the Fifa fans.
Jumpers for Goalposts 5
Having played many of the previous versions of Jumpers for Goalposts, I feel the 5th version brings all the great aspects of the previous games together. The premise of the game is the player takes on the life of a footballer. They learn all the different skills on the training field, and then get given offers from different teams around the world. You can try and work your way up the leagues either by getting your team promoted or by signing for bigger clubs. In each game you play you get different chances to score or contribute to a game like taking a penalty, completing a long pass, or scoring a volley. If you mess these chances up your team will lose, but if you score each one you will win and climb the table. The game isn’t just about football… you can hire and fire agents to help you get better teams, you can buy cars, home ,or assets, and you can even get a girlfriend! I think Fifa players will enjoy the career aspect of this game, but also enjoy the different extras a player can do. Can you bring your player from the lowest league to playing for their national team in the World Cup? You can play this great game at mousebreaker.
Before I found Fifa, I actually played this a great deal. Power Soccer is 3D online multiplayer game you can play in your browser. One of the things I really liked about Power Soccer was the really cool customisation options; you could create your own club crest, change your kit, and also change the appearance of each of your players. I also really liked the shop features where you could buy extra customisation options as well as different goal celebrations. The tournaments and cups really added to the enjoyment allowing your team to show what they were made of. If you like the idea of Fifa, but can’t be bothered to play it on a games console, I would definitely recommend Power Soccer. You can play it here, but you do need to have a PC and not as Mac as you have to download an .exe file for it to run. It also can’t be played in Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge.
Big Win Soccer
Whether you love or hate FUT (Fifa Ultimate Team) you can’t deny its popularity with players and YouTubers. Big Win Soccer incorporates the FUT functions in this neat IOS and Android app. In this app you buy and sell different players based on their ratings. You can also add improvements to your players to help them win. This game is also reminiscent of Football Manager, as you don’t control the players you watch them play. The packs are similar to Fifa with bronze, silver, and gold packs that can be opened with the in-game currency. If you like Fifa Ultimate you will be used to this game’s mechanics, and with the charming aesthetic, I think you will find it an enjoyable app to play. You can download this app for free on IOS and Android.
