FIFA 22 is undoubtedly a step forward for the franchise, and the new Hypermotion engine on new-gen consoles is totally worth it, though it’s pretty clear it’s not everybody’s cup of tea. EA clearly has a lot of things to polish in FIFA 22, and the first update that is already live on PC is the living proof the company is very committed to doing this in the short term.
FIFA 22 kicks-off of the football season with a renewed edition, with the much-awaited Hypermotion Technology playing the leading role. The (numerous) new animations shine above all, while the gameplay has a slightly lower pace, with skills playing a lesser role. An interesting choice, that works quite well despite some issues (goalkeepers) that we hope will be fixed as soon as possible. As always, there is a rich choice of game modes, with a range of options able to satisfy both those looking for a quick & simple experience and those looking for a challenge that can last for months... or even until the release of FIFA 23.
For me it's the best FIFA in years. It's not awesome and brilliant for sure, but in EA franchise - the best!
The PS5 graphics is amazing, gameplay smooth and somehow more realistic then 17-21 FIFA' (thanks to Hypermotion I guess).
Anyway it still suffers from loot boxes model in UT. But this is EA - there is no rival to them.
If you have the next gen console - you shall buy and play.
VOLTA Futsal Mode is the best soccer video game I've played since International Superstar Soccer Deluxe in 1995-1996.
Absolutely perfect in everything, mechanics, physics and movement. I am required to give a grade of 10.
I hate EA and even like to criticize it, but I can't be blind. The game has many flaws, but that's an epic hit.
If you're playing on current-gen systems, FIFA 22 may be a bit of a harder sell. The game itself is largely the same as last year, It's the next-gen graphics and gameplay that really make the game stand out. On next-gen, it's a must for longtime FIFA players. For everyone else, it's more of a personal choice. You certainly won't be missing out on much if you wait a little while.
Unlike last years release, there aren't too many noticable issues that need improving on either. EA have been afforded more time to get this game to where they need it to be, and they seem to have done exactly that. On the other hand though, there are still modes with untapped potential that EA have to put more focus on in order to appeal to their full market of players. It's a strong release from EA, one which will keep them at the top of the footballing sim market, but without a leading competitor to challenge them, that isn't awfully difficult.
FIFA 22 shows its wasted potential every step of the way. When everything works as it should, it’s the best FIFA in years. The problem is that while sometimes the new HyperMotion technology works great and really makes a noticeable difference, the game often picks wrong animations from its mind-boggling array of 8 million. Let’s hope EA Sports builds on these promising foundations, fixes what needs to be fixed and delivers a truly great experience next year. [12/2021, p.36]
After last year's debacle, Fifa 22 is fortunately taking another step in the right direction. It's far from the level of Fifa 10 or the best parts of the previous generation, but at least it looks like football again.
FIFA 22 offers a lot of new elements on next-gen. Gameplay is finally going in a clear direction and provides a clear picture of what to expect from this iteration of FIFA. Even though the gameplay finally seems fine, there are quite a few problems. Career is near unplayable thanks to loads of bugs and glitches, Ultimate Team is still a pay-to-win fest and a lot of modes are clearly less important than cash cow Ultimate Team, which is understandable, but still frustrating.
i played on PS5 and i bought it on a 65% discount from psn uk only for 25£ and this is just the right price.i would never ever buy fifa22 for 69£ .buy something else you wont miss anything if you already have fifa 20 or even fifa19... gameply graphics and everything is as same as old versions,,,,dont let advertises fool you.there is just absoloutly zero difference between fifa22 ps4 and ps5 versions.
but the game is **** enjoyable its fun. i like it . if you are plannint to buy it and you dont own an old version buy when still there is discount
This fifa is not good but better than 21 & 20
I don't know why EA just thinks about making money from ultimate team section for nothing & where the hell they spend money because obviously they didn't work enough for this game.
