    With the Champions League, new modes and fine gameplay innovations, FIFA 19 continues to evolve in small but noticeable steps.

    Maintaining an almost impossible level of polish across its many modes, FIFA 19 might not eclipse PES 19 on the pitch, but it demonstrates its worth via The Journey.

    Besides the advancements in story mode, some changes were made to core gameplay. It’s hard to say if they’re for better or worse, but the game definitely feels a bit different. Maybe that was the entire point, as you can’t just update team rosters of FIFA 18 and sell it as a new game. But tweak the balance a bit – and you’ve got FIFA 19. [Issue #233, p.53]

    Do not expect a big difference in FIFA 19, there are only few minor improvements in graphics and some gameplay innovations, which, however, as a whole work perfectly. [Issue#290]

    I’ll no doubt be sinking many hours into FIFA 19 in the months to come, but I do wish the effort put into the game by EA Sports hadn’t been spent on the modes I’m not really keen on.

  1. Heaving with all that content, and impressing on the pitch where it counts, this is the best FIFA has been in years. I won’t deny I’m more than a little in love with it. The highest praise I can give is that I wasn’t expecting to say that this year. Well played.

    I´m actually surprised about the fact, that I need to defend an EA game after that disasterous Battlefield 5 BETA. So, let´s start it shallI´m actually surprised about the fact, that I need to defend an EA game after that disasterous Battlefield 5 BETA. So, let´s start it shall we?
    I don´t understand why people need to hate this game that much. It´s not perfect, yes, but it´s gameplay actually really fluid, the players have fast reactions and the movement doesn´t feel as sluggish as it felt in the 18th for me. YES, it is not totally realistic, but I´am actually loving this game, because the gameplay is FUN. I tried PES 2019 too, and I know it has a more REALISTIC gameplay then FIFA 19. But I like football games much better the "FIFA way", and still I appreciate sometimes to go for few PES "style" matches...because by it´s way is really good too. That is actually really good for us, because we have TWO options to pick. First, which tries to be as realistic as it can ( PES 2019 ) and the Second, which is less realistic ( FIFA 19 ), but has a story mode ( which is cheesy a little bit, but still appreciated ), a lot of game modes which are actually fun ( House of rules ) if you don´t want to play a serious match just want to have some fun with your friends...and as I told I actually love the base gameplay too. So that´s all folks. Please don´t want FIFA to become PES. I don´t think so, that we want to have 2 exactly same football games from two different companies. Just switch...you have the option. Cheers!

    The physics update is pretty good, but it appears that once again, the creators of FIFA have completely ignored what fans of the game actuallyThe physics update is pretty good, but it appears that once again, the creators of FIFA have completely ignored what fans of the game actually want. Instead, they keep catering to their need to sell FUT points. When will they fix or develop the career modes, for example? I play FUT and manager career and occasionally player career, but honestly, I find FUT boring because it's so contrived. I prefer creating my own experience. The Journey was a brilliant idea, but the tight plot doesn't actually provide for any sense of your own exploring of the game. Expand

    10-year-old graphics, clunky game. It is the same as Fifa 18, and Fifa 18 was the same as 17.

    It's a video game but lacks the interactive part of every videogame. You just get to move your controller sticks like you are making a difference but in reality you are entitled to win some games and to lose others.

    It's still the **** frustrating and unresponsive load of **** as every year. Glad I didn't buy it and got it from Origin Premier.

    This "game" literally gives more headaches than fun. 17 days playing and already unistalled it. The IA just doesn't play football. It justThis "game" literally gives more headaches than fun. 17 days playing and already unistalled it. The IA just doesn't play football. It just scores when it wants.
    The most common game is something like:
    You: 27 shots
    18 to goal
    9 corners
    68% possession
    2 goals
    IA: 2 shots
    1 to goal
    2 corners
    32% possession
    2 goals
    And one game like this is okay, maybe two, even three, but every single game is the same, so it doesn't have any sense playing the game when you know what the result will be (it's even very easy to predict when the IA will score with many seconds of anticipation and there is nothing you can do to avoid it). And every single IA shot is the same, a perfect strike at 200 kph to the squad. (doesn´t matter if the player has 30 in shot power and 20 in finishing).
    In summary:
    The gameplay is the same of every year with 2 or 3 insignificant new things. Modes like career mode are just the same.
    Difficulty is unbalanced (IA plays really bad, but anyways it scores when it wants) and every game has a lot of goals (I've never seen a 0-0 or 1-0 game, there is always at least 2 or 3 goals, and usually more).
    The game feels like you aren't playing, you're just watching what the game already decided to do.

    No innovation. No changes to career mode. Just another cash grab. Don't buy!
