With FIFA 17 having been out for just over one week now, fans have had plenty of time to suss out the tweaks and changes to the latest edition of EA Sports' flagship game.

From slight adjustments to penalty taking and the now annual addition of new celebrations, to the all-important player ratings, there has been quite a lot to take in.

Anyone picking up the game will, though, notice that a lot of the game play is largely the same. That means plenty more inexplicable red cards and shots blazed over from a yard out. But what would a game of FIFA look like when played out in real life?

Well, thanks to the people at 'The Crazy Gorilla' - a comedy skit YouTube channel - you can see for yourselves. That's after a video they created back in August has gone viral in the week of FIFA 17's release.

From the frustrating missed sitters and odd dribbling style often seen on display on consoles across the globe, to the all too familiar sight of a referee interrupting a free-kick routine to book the opposition wall for encroachment, they have got every subtlety of the game absolutely spot on.

When combined with commentary from the game itself, it is hilarious to see how weird the actions you usually see on your Xbox or Playstation look when attempted outside the digital world.

Maybe EA Sports' boasts about ultra-realistic game play aren't quite so accurate after all.

The group might have to update the video after the release of FIFA 17, too. That's after a number of funny glitch moments have already appeared just one week into its release.
