It’s said that sports games do not make it big when it comes to graphical fidelity and excellence these days. The said notion is not only being debunked, but utterly destroyed; leading the forefront of that assault is the FIFA series. FIFA has been the touchstone for sports games for a while now, and with their latest entry, – FIFA 15 – EA Canada has made a new benchmark, well above the expectations of fans and critics. FIFA 15 takes advantage of the new consoles to the full extent and looks beautiful, to say the least.
With a plethora of crafty new refinements and tweaks, the game takes a huge leap towards realism. It may be that you may not even notice a handful of changes made in the heat of the game, but this is exactly what makes the game so excellent.
Before we conclude anything, a lot of factors should be taken into consideration because the winner is not only about the best looking game but also the one that offers most frame rates. Most gamers obviously know that PC could surpass everything else in this regard because of the superior hardware rig but the other versions are now equally competitive because of the next gen hardware on the consoles.
Frame Rate Test Results
Frame rates always matter and if you wish to enjoy a sports game as FIFA 15 at its best, it should render the best frames in every situation, be it a crowded scenario when all players are on screen or when you are near the goal post with the opponent team surrounding it, the frames shouldn’t drop which is mandatory for a satisfying experience.
It is great to know that both consoles offered a solid 60 FPS throughout the game without any drop at all except for the goal celebrations which doesn’t count as you are not actually playing it. However, visually the Xbox One looked bit superior.
Comparing with PC Edition
The same engine has been used by EA for FIFA 15 on Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC. But, the game looks different on each one of these platforms. If you are looking for the best color and contrast ratio, the Xbox One edition is surely the best of the console counterparts. However, in terms of smooth edges, better player faces and anti-aliasing, the PC version easily wins the fight. The frames per second were good on all platforms which means you don’t have to worry about losing a kick or a goal shot because of lag.
Playstation 4 had a great hardware at the beginning, but it looks like Xbox One has caught up recently. Playing FIFA 15 on Xbox One seems the best choice unless you love it on a PC with a controller.
