Another big feature from the back of the box is the Pro Player Intelligence that has “infused CPU players with self-awareness and aptitude”. The overall message being that teams and players are now more akin to their real life counterparts in intelligence and ability. This should be reflected on screen. When playing against the AI, there are subtle differences in the approaches that various opponents take in their attacking play. Furthermore, this is also seen in individual performances where a Xabi Alonso will utilise his Vision and passing ability more often than not. Conversely, the frequency at which these events happen is not as regular as one would hope for. In addition, going back to the Xabi Alonso example, this intelligence is affected in-game when a human is playing by limits to vision based on camera angle etc. You’re not going to spot a 60 yard darting run from your left-back if he isn’t on-screen (Tele Camera) and you typically don’t refer to the map that often, but if you are playing in the Be A Pro camera angle then you may spot the pass. How this feature will influence the game for Manual players out there we aren’t entirely sure, but time will tell. All-in-all a welcome addition but not a Gamechanger.
