The game Fifa has a displays many things parallel to physics in reality. In the game, motions of players and the ball as well as wind resistance. When you pass the ball through the air, the game mimics the parabolic path that the ball would take in a real live soccer game. Things such as the wind and the different players striking the ball are all accounted for. If the environment in the game is one of higher winds then different outcomes will occur when a ball travels through the air. Also in the movement of players momentum is heavily considered. If you were to play older Fifa game, the movement of players would seem unrealistic because they would be able to change momentum and accelerate themselves in impossible ways. In the newer games, when a player is moving full speed, it takes time for them to change their direction after having all of that momentum moving in some direction.
