People who buy FIFA 17 Xbox 360 in Amazon feel angry by misleading
FIFA 17 is scheduled to be released on 27 September 2016 in North America and 29 September 2016 for the rest of the world, landing platform for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC. What’s your feeling about these words? Can you know there are some traps in there? But it really exists. Although FIFA 17 sells very well in the first week in UK and 20 times than PES 2017, FIFA 17 faced terrible Amazon customer reviews. We know that the main selling points of FIFA 17 is the new frostbite engine and the story mode “Journey”.
But some owners of FIFA 17 on PS3 and Xbox 360 are leaving negative reviews of the game on Amazon due to the absence of The Journey story mode. Although the solo mode features on the Xbox One, PS4 and PC versions of the game, it has been omitted from the last-gen editions - a fact of which some angry customers claim they weren't aware. Let's look at the FIFA 17 Xbox 360 page on Amazon. Is it misleading? Well, there's no mention of The Journey in the list of available game modes, but perhaps it would have been wise for EA to stress that The Journey is not included, rather than just leave it off.
If you look at the images on the side of the FIFA 17 Xbox 360 Amazon product page, you see screenshots taken from The Journey. We see its star, Alex Hunter, mention of Frostbite and manager Jose Mourinho (managers aren't in the last-gen version, either). The Journey puts gamers in the shoes of aspiring young player Alex Hunter and attaches story-based elements to campaign. For some prospective buyers this was an anticipated feature, leading to a slew of one-star reviews on Amazon.
There's also mention of the last-gen version not being built on the Frostbite game engine, as the current-gen versions are. Some complaints bemoan the game's similarity to FIFA 16, but those related to The Journey blow the horn of false advertising. Many of the posts are from parents who have bought the game for a child only to find them bitterly disappointed. In all, it amounts to a feeling that FIFA 17 on PS3 and Xbox 360 is too similar to FIFA 16 and therefore does not justify the price tag.
