FIFA 18 is further proof of EA’s domination in the soccer video game category, building on its past successes and offering a uniquely fun experience, believes Dom Reseigh-Lincoln of TechRadar. Improvements in animation and game mechanics make FIFA 18 the best soccer simulation out there. Players’ individual skills and qualities shine like never before. They move and play almost identical to their real-life selves. Fun game modes like Ultimate Team and The Journey have been tweaked and enhanced to offer an even more fun and immersive experience. Once again, EA has set the bar higher than it ever was before.
Yet again the latest FIFA demonstrates EA’s great quality in marketing minute changes as major improvements while continuously refusing to innovate, suggests Jack Henry Norris of Soccity. Sadly, the franchise has understood its games will sell anyway and has settled into a habit of improving as little as possible with every new release. With FIFA 18, EA have their iPhone of the gaming world. Non-elite clubs play disjointedly and fall to the big ones every time. Pace is still overrated, making players that are great in real life almost useless. Passing feels clunky as ever and defending has been made incredibly difficult.
