New gameplay features in FIFA 22 give you more consistency between the posts with a goalkeeper rewrite that brings more composure to the most important position on the pitch, alongside new ball physics, explosive sprint that better matches the acceleration of the game’s quickest players, and new attacking tactics that let you take control of how your team plays. In Career Mode, live out your football dreams as you create and manage the game’s newest club to glory. VOLTA FOOTBALL rewards you for your flair with restyled small-sided gameplay and new ways to play and progress each season. Get the squad together in Pro Clubs with enhanced team customization and updated progression that puts you in control of your Virtual Pro’s development, and welcome back some of football’s most memorable players as new FUT Heroes in FIFA Ultimate Team™ with a redefined competition structure that makes testing your skills against other players more accessible. However you play, enjoy unrivaled authenticity everywhere with over 17,000 players, 700+ teams, and more than 30 leagues including the UEFA Champions League, CONMEBOL Libertadores, and the brand new UEFA Europa Conference League - only available in FIFA 22.
Reimagined gameplay creates fundamental advances that you’ll feel across every mode in FIFA 22. A goalkeeper rewrite brings more composure and consistency to the most important position on the pitch, new ball physics reimagine every pass, shot, and goal, and explosive sprint lets you feel the acceleration of the game’s quickest players.
• Goalkeeper Rewrite - A brand new goalkeeper system brings a new level of intelligence to the last line of defence, unlocking more reliable shot-stopping and smarter decision-making between the posts. In FIFA 22, goalkeeper positioning personality replicates the different styles of keepers throughout the game - from the lightning-fast reflexes of world-class shot stoppers like Jan Oblak to the aggression of sweeper keepers such as Ederson.
• True Ball Physics - Real-world data imported into FIFA 22 takes the game’s ball physics to a new level of realism. Tuned parameters including speed, swerve, air drag, air resistance, ground friction, and rolling friction mean every touch, trap, shot, volley, pass, and dribble will look, move, and fly like the real thing.
• Explosive Sprint - A new gameplay mechanic that changes the dynamic of one-on-one situations, Explosive Sprint gives you more control over acceleration when dribbling or defending. Lure opponents in and choose when to unleash your full speed to get away from the defender as you drive your team forward in attack.

FIFA 22 - Official Career Mode Trailer

Oct 11, 2021Wonderful and distasteful all at once, it entertains and fails in turns, like Frank Worthington. But I loved watching Frankie.
Oct 16, 2021Despite its flaws FIFA 22 manages to find the balance point between simulation and fun. Although the fact some of its modes are far from perfect, it can offer the thrills that football gives to its fans, both online and locally. The much-discussed HyperMotion does its job perfectly and justifies the need for this year's edition, in contrast with previous years. If you consider yourself a football fan, there's no need to hesitate into buying this year's edition.
Sep 29, 2021After many hours spent on the next-gen version of FIFA 22 (PS5-Xbox Series) and its old-gen bent, the conclusion is there: PC, Xbox One and PS4 players will have a version with the flaws of the new generation, but cut off from its strengths.
Sep 28, 2021Not a great year and a PC downgrade: FIFA 22 still plays well, but its PC version is graphically limited and offers little innovation.

Jul 13, 2022the best football game I have ever seen. beautiful many game modes and good game play
Oct 23, 2022Although single player modes are fun and deeper on the detail and soccer world simulation (Finally, cause the other games were pretty slack onAlthough single player modes are fun and deeper on the detail and soccer world simulation (Finally, cause the other games were pretty slack on this aspect), a lot of the mechanics are just awful. Defense IA is just one of the worst accesibility issues of this game, a lot harder to control in a bad mood, and it takes a lot to learn this mechanic properly, which can turn very frustating and boring even against the IA. Ultimate team, each game that passes is increasingly plagued by microtransactions, making it enjoyable and satisfactory only for Youtubers or content creators who can afford to pay a lot of money to obtain the best items in the game.… Expand
Oct 8, 2021It is wildly entertaining to do these reviews because it is genuinely difficult to come up with a positive to boost the rating from zero.It is wildly entertaining to do these reviews because it is genuinely difficult to come up with a positive to boost the rating from zero. Let's see, oh yes that's right, the soundtrack is pretty good (apart from the modern rap, yikes) and oh wow Career mode finally got some attention. You can finally create your own club in "Manager Career Mode", which is sorely overdue, and in Player Career there are new perk trees and objectives to help progress your player through team and coach approval ratings.
Then there's the negatives... but it says 5000 characters max so... yea. I'll try to summarize. Microtransactions are still garbage in an industry that should have left them behind ages ago and/or should have been legislated and banned as simulated gambling, but seeing as there is a massive spike in online sports betting and casinos, it is safe to say that the profit margin execs at EA are alive and well and will not be facing any criticism anytime soon. Hooray!
This game has been slowed down in its tempo, which while not necessarily a bad thing, is a terrible idea for a game which relies on responsiveness and fast movement to compete when you are not lucky enough to have a strong connection to EAs antiquated servers. On top of this, the passing has become abysmal, and that is not hyperbole. There are way too many times when the "smart passing IQ" will send the ball to a place you were not expecting it to go, this happened last year in 21, and apparently passing is not important enough in a football game to fix. To add a nice cherry on top, sometimes your player will not even register a pass or register too late and cause you to concede more times than you should have. It is just a huge step backwards in responsiveness that is so critical in a game like FIFA and is by far the worst aspect of this game.
The goalkeeping is all over the place, they save every shot in an 18-yard box, but will become dumbfounded by a finesse shot from just outside the same box. I would be all for a goalkeeper upgrade, but it is like EA has to leave an exploit available to balance it out, instead of making goalkeepers more competent so that well worked football goals actually feel rewarding.
Player switching is another issue that has become unbearable this year, you can spam LB/L1 as much as you want to get that critical switch into your CB or CDM to defend, but it just will not snap to the right player for some reason, even when analog switching. A hint for some is that you can now click in the RS/R3 to select a player directionally, which is definitely a small fix, but it is very clunky and hard to do in FIFA which relies on split-second decisions.
I will give credit where it is due, they changed Rivals & FUT Champs rewards for the better, making it a bit less of a grind to get better rewards, because most people, although they won't readily admit it, they play this game like a card collecting simulator more than an actual football simulator. This is ultimately due to the inconsistent gameplay, momentum mechanics, and horribly toxic community, and it is hard to argue against that.
Also, EA have decided that all of the next-generation mechanics, such as "hyper-motion technology" and last minute goal celebrations will not make their way to PC because they did not want to "divide our userbase" due to graphic card limitations. Apparently the majority of us are still using Radeon HD 2000s and Nvidia 7800s, because last time I checked, FIFA runs on a potato and a majority of the userbase (at least on steam) are using GTX 1060s or better? Sounds like a bull defecated somewhere. In all honesty, I played the PS5 version as well, and it actually felt heavier and clunkier, so maybe it is a good thing that PC missed out on it. Cheers EA!
People also will not agree with this part, and that is fine, but EA can relax with the political messaging, I do not need to be pandered to by a greedy, corrupt company that only cares about their bottom line, let alone multi-millionaire football stars that are miles from reality. Save it for your Twitter feuds that nobody cares about and take your BLM & Rainbow Laces propaganda and sod off. This crap is thrown in our faces in every facet of media and entertainment, why it has to be in this garbage FIFA game as well is beyond me.
+ Good soundtrack
- Terrible gameplay
- Awful delay
- Passing is abysmal
- Goalkeepers are inconsistent
- Segregating PC community (hell, even the 5 Stadia users got the next gen version)
- Toxic community
- Momentum swings still exist
- Player switching is a chore
- Responsiveness is a variable in every single game
- Nobody cares about Volta
- Political grandstanding
Overall, stay on 21 if you are a casual PC user and unless you are a hardcore player, do not buy this trite garbage.… Expand

Apr 9, 2022Simply don't buy it, it's unplayable. The gameplay is terrible and the defenders seem to have no brain.
