Damning Images Show FIFA 21’s Next-Gen Graphics Aren’t As Good As FIFA 17’s
FIFA 21's launch on next-gen consoles has underwhelmed fans - with many thinking FIFA 17's graphics were far better.
The latest instalment of EA Sports' franchise hit PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X on Friday and many were expecting revolutionary graphics.
While facial capture technology and a new camera angle have proved to be popular, the game's more realistic approach has resulted in drabber colours.
YouTuber MGH shared a screenshots of FIFA 17 on last-gen consoles alongside one of FIFA 21 on PS5 captioned: "Why does FIFA 17 look better than Next Gen FIFA 21?"

Both screenshots are from Manchester United vs Chelsea and in the FIFA 17 image, the grass is a much stronger shade of green.
FIFA 21 meanwhile, has a much flatter-looking pitch with less detail.
Other images of FIFA 17 have reemerged following the tweet and you can judge the graphics for yourself.
It's a very tough one to call.
Fans have reacted to the images and they think FIFA 17 as a whole looks much better than this year's iteration.

Because EA have no incentive to spend money on developing a better game every year if all the casual gamers will buy it every year regardless. PES has been better than FIFA for years now, the fact it's still not as popular says it all.

Executive Producer of FIFA Aaron McHardy discussed the new changes last month and stressed the new game brings never before seen 'authenticity.'
"We're excited to deliver a new level of authenticity that will immerse players in the game like never before when they step out onto the virtual pitch in FIFA 21.
"With next level immersive experiences that truly bring the most recognizable stadiums and professional players to life, the technology behind these next generation consoles opens up a world of possibilities for how players will experience the world's game this year and into the future."
