Watch us play (and actually, genuinely enjoy) FIFA 17's Story Mode

The Journey begins.

I'll be honest, I didn't expect much from FIFA 17's story mode. But now I've had a go at the short slice of The Journey that's available with the recently-released demo, I'm fully on-board with this wonderful curio.

In The Journey you play Alex Hunter, an up-and-coming forward who signs for a Premier League club. Via Frostbite-powered cut-scenes and BioWare-style dialogue wheels, Hunter learns his trade, makes his name, and, with any luck, avoids being sent out on loan.

In the video below, Chris Bratt, Chris Tapsell and I have a quick look at my playthrough of The Journey, where Hunter makes his debut away at Chelsea with the score perfectly poised at 1-1. Can Hunter bag the winner? What will he say in his post-match interview? Will he throw his teammates under the bus? And why is Zlatan on the bench?

The answers to these questions and more are in the video, below. Have a gander.
