FIFA is a very popular game that usually doesn’t get returned. Or takes a long time before it is returned. But apparently only a few days after the release, there are multiple pre-owned copies on many GameStop shelves. I had to wonder – why?
Well, I actually have a slight idea.
My husband is a fan of FIFA series. Always has been. But he was one of the ones who turned it in only a few days after it came out. What is this huge problem? They changed the controls. They have used essentially taken away a consistant and liked section of game and messed it up. I know, he – along with all the other players – could just learn and practice and get used to it. But it was something they liked about it. Obviously. And throwing off a huge part of the fandom.
Which is why not only was there a Pre-Owned copy in GameStop. It is why there are MULTIPLE copies. This one had two today, and that was just one store. There are copies in GameStops all over this area.
And let me say, that is a pretty big goof? Why change how the game handles when it has worked so well for so many years. There are other ways to variate moves and what have you, but to do it to this extent? That is like Assassin’s Creed changing how to run. They may have tweeked a few handling issues, but they didn’t just down right change it.
That was enough of an issue for people to return this game. Maybe they need to address it and fix it for the next. Because this was a huge disappointment for many of those who used to be very loyal to this series.
What did you think of it? Was the controls a huge thing for you or were you able to overlook it? And if you did, how is it?
