    Defenses are pointless, goalkeepers are a sack of potatoes. And scripting even stronger. I can't believe how bad a game they made this year. Unbelievable. I will try pes.

    Seriously Ea you remove the add guest feature on FUT without announcing it?? Ridiculous of you. I used to play with my brother since 2013 now what? That is the only feature i use, i would never have bought if i knew.

    Same BS as last year but just slightly different graphics. SCRIPTING is still here like who doesn't love to lose 1-2 with 10 shots against 2? Who doesn't love it that you suddenly can't pass from 60th - 90th minute? In the meanwhile your opponent can pass from one side of the field to the other side with sokratis.

    It's no wonder the reviewgrades are going down each year.

    Unfortunately EA made the same mistakes again. There are too many scripted scenes, where you have barely no chance to get the ball or to avoid goals while playing against the CPU. Sometimes the script makes your goalkeeper and the defence line ridiculously weak only to change the result of the game. This is and was frustrating. The presentation is still great.

The pace of the game has changed a little. Sliding tackles end in yellow card more often. It is still very hard to steal the ball of supreme players like Messi or Ronaldo because they appear to have magnetic feet. If I were you, I'd check out PES this year! Expand

    Wait did they not say recently there is no momentum?? I BOUGHT THIS BS AGAIN WHYY IT´S SCHRIPTED AS HELL
    The game is again interrupting the matches so hard, it´s terrible. I remember it wasn´t like this in Fifa 12. At least not recognizable for me. I recently played it again and it feels so much better then the at least last 4 games.

    EA sports you're like an ex girlfriend. I only remember the good times, but once we're back together all the bad memories come back. Every time I hope you've changed, yet now I realise it's not you, but me. I need to move on and let go, you will never be what I look for in a video game...

    Surely with so much complaint about Scripting EA would take note and take steps to move FIFA 18 in the right direction? But no, same scripted BS that we've seen in at least the last 5 iterations. No point playing a game which largely determines the outcome before a ball is kicked.

    As usual its just another lazily game that's been given to us. Defence is appalling, players move like they're 50 stone, can't do anything about pace. Worst FIFA ive ever played. Trying to become a football simulator like PES haha, no. Stick to arcade style play. No one plays FIFA for realism. We play only because the licenses.

    Not worth the upgrade. Still has all the same problems as last years version. A certain other game by Konami has raised the bar now and EA can't match it where it counts, on the pitch. The Journey is like a mediocre tv series with a bit of gameplay interupting now and again. Excessive load times in career mode. Bring back the virtual pro EA.

PES has been my game since the PS2 days. I especially disliked FIFA 17, felt like a foosball game more than a football/soccer sim. Furthermore, EA can eat my *** and if it went under I honestly wouldn't really mind. But this is the first Fifa I'm buying in over a decade because it's made enough improvements, especially on the controls & physics, to the point where all the other stuff like presentation, licenses, modes & graphics actually put it over for me.

    PES devs deserve the praise & cash after all these years (though they also deserve better than Konami as their boss...) but I find it pretty amazing that this is the year so many are finally flocking to it, after literally Decades of arguing with FIFA stans that EA's game was trash & that PES was where it's at. I'll admit even now, PES' classic feel on the controls cannot be beat.... But a football/soccer simulation that does not make. The truth is that PES has no midfield game. Matches are generally just 90 mins of counter attacks, through lobs to the wing, a flurry of shots, and repeat until the whistle blows. Any good PES player will churn out 25 shots per 10 minute game like clockwork and the only way to stop it isn't with actual defense on the field, but by memorizing defensive settings combos in the gameplan menu which apply the same to pretty much every team regardless of personnel & essentially functions as a game within a game. PES is fine, but PES is PES... It's got it's own rules & internal logic and if you abide by them, you'll have fun because it feels nice to play. But again, that doesn't make it a football/soccer simulation.

    I'm seeing a lot of people complain about FIFA's pace, but it is much more like the real thing. You actually have to think about how you're going to move the ball up the field & make the most of your possessions. There is actual incentive to pass Backwards sometimes, like in real life, to reset play... Try that in PES in a competitive game, I dare you (you'll have it snatched from behind by the opposing striker and give up a goal). There are different ways to approach offense unlike in PES where every good player sets the same 3 FWD formation regardless of the personnel because they know the game is so heavily offensive that playing any other way is pointless. In FIFA you can actually play team defense based on field positioning instead of feeling like you're skating on ice with no choice but to try to steal the ball 1 on 1, at which point it's off to the races again. If all this makes FIFA "too slow" for people then I really have to question those people's understanding of the sport.

    None of this would mean as much to me if the game didn't feel right on the controls, which is exactly why I've stuck it out with PES & dealt with all the BS (like bad servers & lack of licenses, uploading kits & stadiums & all that) for all these years. There is no doubt that the physics & feel have finally improved to the point where it's a no brainer for me. And while the controls may not be as loose & Mario-like as PES, it's certainly better than any FIFA in a long time, especially last year's where it felt like all the players were puppets connected by string. This time passing & dribbling do feel nice and individual players off the ball actually move around in a more realistic way, unlike any other Fifa or PES I've seen, which seemed robotic when you look at them from a distance. If you don't believe me check out the demo & play it for yourself.

    I have yet to get into all the different modes but from what I've seen from FUT it is nice and let me tell you the licenses, presentation & feeling of real life connectedness with sport globally do not hurt, especially after all these years of PES. If I come across any tragic gamebreaking circumstances I will come back and change this review, but until then I'm leaving a 10 because all these 0's, 1's & 2's are a joke and need some balancing out. My only real concern at this point is that I haven't exactly found the right difficulty setting, though I've settled on Pro for now (1 higher than the default Semi-Pro) and it generally feels right.

    FIFA has been consistent throughout the years of being a great game to being one of my worst games. In an attempt to combine mediocre gameplay to a decent story campaign. It just doesn't meet the standards of "fun". It's clutterd, and boring. Same game since FIFA 14. Any the ratings get lower, and lower each year. Notice the pattern?

I can't think of anything that is positive about this game and EA in general. I dont think anyone could disagree with the fact that fifa 18 is a half finished game.
    There are so many bugs and flaws in this game that I actually dont know where to start.
    I've read a lot of the reviews and one thing that is for certain is that all ratings above 5 are paid by ea. The game is not realistic at all, its not fun playing, the bugs are taking all the fun away from the game. The anger you get from losing matches/get scored on VS the "joy" of winning and scoring yourself is not comparable. Defending without AI would be much better, but EA failed to actually make it viable, this game is about who can score the most goals, and ofcourse pace.

    I've created this account only to review Fifa 18, but as I am writing i realise more and more that EA doesnt give a **** about its customers at all. As a huge fifa "fanboy" I am just sad that EA could release this game. I'm gonna write a list with things that must be improved at some point, cause this isnt unbearable.

    PingPong passes( not skillbased at all)

    Horrible dribbling and ballcontrol(the times i do get past, is because of the defending in this game is a disaster)

    Random goals (9/10 goals come from mistakes either by AI or player)

    GKs extremely unbalanced (were **** before patch, have improved but are some times way to op, and sometimes way to sh*t)

    Shooting are totally random.

    Set pieces are useless, shooting from freekicks wont get you any goals. gks are superop when it comes to saving freekicks.

    Pay to win (you wont get **** in your packs, you get to few packs for the amount of cash you spend.)
    Laggy menus (just how?)

    Players looked much better in fifa 17 and earlier fifa's than 18

    And the defense is just f*cked up.

    Its worth mentioning that I am usually a very good player, with dribling as my strongest feature. but this fifa, i cant stand. Everything is bull****, if someone scores one of those easy goals im quitting ASAP. Its not even worth trying when you actually have no control of the outcome of the match, even tho you are miles better.

    I wouldnt recommend anyone to buy Fifa 18, hopefully Fifa 19 will be better.
    This review wasnt as good as i was hoping it would be, because this game deserves a 100% honest review.

The story was average at best, everything was Adidas in the gear (similar to UFC 2 with Reebok) which wasn't the best move. The story just felt stale to me. It got tedious after an hours game time. Then this leads me to Career Mode. They brought up the new transfer negotiations and made it seem huge. As I originally predicted, this got tedious extremely quick. Besides that, it's the exact same as 17. No real improvements, especially considering the wishlist for that mode has always been in-depth, and some of the ideas people have are amazing.

    Besides the negative, the play of the game is amazing. Defending got a lot better, players actually make runs, and overall the flow of the game feels extremely nice. I just with EA would focus on the offline modes as much as they focus on Ultimate Team.

    I've been playing FIFA since FIFA 03 and back then a new game made sense because you couldn't download an update. The game has seen no valuable improvements since FIFA 14 and I could even argue as far back as FIFA 10.

    These critics don't speak for me and the only thing I can do is speak with my wallet, which doesn't even matter because there are always millions of kids wanting to play as Ronaldo. So all I have is this terrible review that no one will care about.

    In Career mode, if you switch off the first transfer window, which is the only way to ensure that you get accurate team rosters, the Bosman/free agency signing system breaks. So if you then sign a pre-contract with a player in the January Transfer window to join in the next Summer, the player doesn't join. This is just one such instance of a basic game breaking flaw that is impossible to have been missed in testing. If EA testers can miss this bug, then it is blatantly obvious that they don't even test their Career mode. Adding a stupid animated signing sequence, which gets old after the first 10 times you do it doesn't matter if the transfer system is itself broken.
    Oh and if you add people to your transfer list, no one wants to sign them. No reviewer manages to catch these bugs, so it is obvious that the reviewers don't really play career mode. Unfortunately, EA just doesn't care for me as a customer and this product is just not for someone who like single player gaming.
    Well people kept telling me i was too old for games, but now that publishers don't want to make games for me anymore, i might as well start saving money.

    Another FIFA game the only reason you'd buy this is if you haven't got one already it's just new with slightly better physics and graphics I'd rather play destiny 2 story than play this crap called a game.

    Pile of big **** DO NOT buy this game! You are not able to defend. EA? Are you kidding me? How incompetent ****s are working for you? Because these guys never saw a simple match I guarantee it.
    You should have made a new FIFA 17 with working pass system and made freekick easier.
    Pros: - you can pass for long ranges very well - (i am really thinking believe me) ... Cons: - you can

    Pros:
    - you can pass for long ranges very well
    - (i am really thinking believe me)
    ...
    Cons:
    - you can not pass to short ranges (still)
    - **** AI (BIG)
    - even worse freekicks (check pros, even they rather pass the freekicks than take a shot)
    - horribly slow movement speed (defenders can not run or wtf?)
    - seems goalkeepers are on addictive drugs (all matches end almost 10 goals)
    - the game is ugly (it was not be a con if it would be enjoyable)
    - heavily smells the capitalism - it is very easy to score but even pros are not able to defend- thrust me I am (was in previous FIFAs) a pro player - in 17 I win 9/10 on H2H in 18 maybe 5-7/10 (but take a look at the points and i do not think the mistake is in me
    - such players like Isco does not get cosmetics (like long hair) come on Is it too hard to make such a thing in a Fifa game? Where there is no need to make improvements?
    - oh and Ascensio and Ben Arfa? Did you even see them in real live? They are not no name players.
    - Journey is stolen from film series Goal Living the dream
    - FUT is still very pay2win (lower squads suck) and you are often paired with players with huge lags - I have 1000 mb/sec sooo I do not think this would be my problem.

    All in all from 2015 (in the next gen era ) I loved all fifas but now this 18 is **** as fxxk in all way.
    It is like EA had a No man's sky.

And one other thing Ultimate Team is a slot machine aimed at minors and as we speak in certain nations is the topic of debate as of the legality of the gambling aspect of the game.

    The pacing is stodgy, the story is frustratingly slow, the defending is near-impossible, and the game feels incredibly scripted, especially offline. Licenses, music, graphics, and other less important features have been improved, but the gameplay left this user incredibly frustrated the entire time.

    More FIFA more of the same. The lazy developers of this game should not be encouraged.

    For the hard working team behind this game, please have some self respect and get a job in another decent studio!

The referee is still standing right in the way, your teammates constantly run into each other and the goal keepers are as dumb as ever. Actually nothing has changed. I can't believe I fell for EA again. I skipped a few versions of FIFA and thought, this year they might have improved a bit but guess what: all EA cares about is, how to make more money without any effort at all.

    This game is not worth it's money. If you own any older FIFA title: stick with it, because it is not getting any better. Save your money!

As a FIFA veteran I really loved to play the game around christmas every year, but this year I completely stopped playing the game because of how boring and unrewarding it is to play. I'll try to cover as much as I possibly can to give you a detailed review of this game.
    Career Mode:
    Yet another year

As a FIFA veteran I really loved to play the game around christmas every year, but this year I completely stopped playing the game because of how boring and unrewarding it is to play. I'll try to cover as much as I possibly can to give you a detailed review of this game.
    Career Mode:
    Yet another year where EA failes to freshen up career mode, both manager and player career. Almost no gameplay changes compared to last year. It has some new cut scenes added, however, they soon get repetitive and boring and annoy you most of the time. AI is atrocious like every year. To give an example: Top teams would sign 3-4 world class players for the same position( Bayern signs Dybala, Lukkaku and Cavani, while also having Lewandowski at ST position). After a couple of different career play thorughs you'll notice the patterns behind top teams' signings even to an extent that some players wind up in one team 99% of the time( Dybala at Bayern).
    Ultimate Team:
    Although they added a lot of gameplay features this year, one being Squad Battles, one can't help but wonder what could've been if they actually polished the mode properly. Ever since FIFA 17, Ultimate Team is completely differen to other modes, gameplay wise. Players feel sluggish, like I'm controlling 300 pound sumo wrestlers, not professional and agile athletes( no offense to sumo guys). Also, there are way too many instances when the game adjusts the gameplay in order to favor one player. Sometimes I can see that my opponent is a lot better than me and he should win, but, with FIFA's help, I manage to scrape a win or a draw, the opposite scenario is also true.
    Ranked matchmaking( Weekend League) requires you to play 40 games on weekends against totally random opponents and your finish is determined by the amount of wins you got. Sometimes you would get e-sport professionals, and sometimes you would get 3 year olds who got into a match by mashing buttons and chewing their controller. You can actually search for examples where e-sport professionals would exploit the system to get easier opponents and finish higher.
    Gameplay:
    The game is automated way too much. Trying to manually defend with your defenders actually punishes you, so everyone is using high stamina midfielders and chasing your players with them, instead of trying to use their centerbacks.
    There's also a lot of input lag, even in offline modes, making the game very unresponsive and it's one of the reasons why the player feel like tanks.
    I really hope I have helped you make up your mind about this game. In my opinion is it not worth a penny, I would match rather buy PES 2018( you can always import real teams, kits and badges, it's very easy, google search it) as the gameplay is just that much better.

    I don´t understand this EA, your Company has experience with football games from 1994 and your are not learning from your mistakes! Why? Every year the self problems! The default faces are ugly, because EA has switched to Frostbite Engine! The balance between defense and offense ist extreme advantage for the offense! Unrealistic gameplay is the result, that is spectacular for kids, but not for users they will have a real football game! Football is not alone offense EA!!! The offense is extreme overpowered! All second long shots goes into the goal, and fast players overrun all defense player! Players how Ronaldo, Bale and so on are total overpowered, that is extremely unreal! The goalkeeper is a fly catcher! FIFA is the same we the WWF, that is not a sports game, that is a show game, the winner is standing on before the referee the game open! What is your problem EA, do you can't this better or do you will not? Buy you PES, that is really a real football game, FIFA is dead!!!

    Utter rubbish. EA doesn't deserve a cent from you.

    Fifa 14 was the first of its series I've been playing up until Fifa 18 recently. Over 4 years of offline game plays (2 games a day on average) with simple matches and league matches (BVB to win bundesliga), I can only see EA's mess in fundamental gameplay to get worse. I'm fully aware that it's a simulation of football experience after all, so it can never be perfect. It's easy to get a sense of AI playing against you, but FIFA 17 and 18 had been very different. I appreciate the fact that EA have introduced new things into the game. But it seems to me they are currently very comfortable to put 90% of their effort to work on surfaces (like appearances of players) than on the fundamental experiences.

    Before FIFA18, the game have been fluid, slick, challenging, and acceptably balanced (but still not good enough). I have been able to get past defenders if my player's position was right and the dribbling was good enough. I can make series of forward and backward passes (although annoying sometimes) to dominate the game and win. FIFA 16 was too flat and too easy to get goals (unrealistically). Besides statistics that disappeared, FIFA 17's opponent AI was too hard to get past and the way it wins the ball and defends are too hard for any football fans to understand. But at least FIFA 17's player's defenders AI are smart enough to defend against opponents. That means you can win the game (patiently) if you are tactically robust. So patience paid off at the last 3 - 4 minutes of the game, which partially ruined the "joy" I've always had with FIFA.

    Now, FIFA 18 simply get rid of everything you know about gameplay. Passings are so slow that I nearly see the ball to stop by itself half way between players. When I made good tackles or interceptions, my player sometimes sprint on a threadmill and let opponent takes the ball. My players who are better positioned to win air balls loses everytime or simply being paralysed. Players like Aubameyang or Sterling or Kane can never dribble past defenders of opponent with 1.5 stars lower ratings. It still takes up to 3 actual seconds for my players to reuse the passed balls or to shoot. Some good (but not among the best) players like Dahoud can make 8 shots (all outside the box because there's no way to get inside) just to hit the woodwork 7 times IN A SINGLE GAME (yes, the players can be that accurate). FIFA 17's opponents who can outpace player's defenders so easily are nothing new in FIFA 18 (Yes, my Aubameyang was traced back by Mertesacker on through ball and tackled backwards so easily). It now empowers opponents by having them able to make clearance in a rush and ends up being a killer diagonal ball WHILE MY DEFENDERS ARE PARALYSED. And right at that moment, when I try to take control over defenders, I ended up controlling my CAM. Then now matter how I can keep calm in my box, nothing works. Containing or jockeys only slow them down just to make a good passing to its teammates and score. Trying to win the ball will risk (90% chance) conceding penalty. FIFA 18 no longer allows free kicks, corner kicks, and penalty kicks for players to score. By the moment the stadium announces additional time, my players can no longer make passes and they are up against the pace and flawless performance of REAL MADRID even if I'm playing against 1860 Munich (IN THE 90th MINUTE).

    This is my worst football game I've ever played (including PES I've been playing for nearly a decade before switching to FIFA).

    The game is s**t.
    Needs a good patch asap.
    There are too many scripted scenes, where you have barely no chance to get the ball or to avoid goals while playing against the CPU. Sometimes the script makes your goalkeeper and the defence line ridiculously weak only to change the result of the game.

    Even though the gameplay at launch was really good, EA managed to mess everything up with the latest patches. Gameplay now is stale and boring, a clear iteration (and quite worse) of FIFA 17. By far the worst FIFA of the last few years.

I fought my way every week, playing all the games, my lowest ranking was Gold 1 while my highest was Elite 3. When it comes to the rewards it's your usual packs of nothing. Could barely make 5k by selling the rewards in the transfer market. An utter waste of time, really a disgrace by EA not respecting their customers gaming time & money. Gameplay wise, it's exactly last years game & the year before that. Basically EA is charging us for the same unfinished product they have been issuing annually. Then just to abuse us a little bit more, they keep updating the game with updates that actually makes this game increasingly unplayable. Exactly like paying for a meal made with spoiled ingredients, money down the toilet. Expand

    The main problem in my opinion is that EA is the developer and publisher, they want a new game every year and they have to appease their share holders, therefore they prioritize money over quality of game.

    If you want to do the gaming scene and community a favor, dont buy this game, but if you have to buy it, NEVER buy fifa points, support EA as little as possible, they are the worst scam company in the industry.

    I have played video games since I was around 6-7 years old and I am 33 now. My first Fifa was back in 98 and I have played almost every one up until now so take it from me, this is not what dedicated gamers consider a good game.

    I know that this review is coming a bit late, but I just want to point out how every fifa game is pretty much the same now.
    Graphics of the game look like they come from fifa 14. The game play feels the same like all other fifa games. It's competitor Pes 2018, has much better graphics and game play (not to mention that it has lower budget than fifa 18). This just proves how greedy EA has become.

    You don't really play, you just kind of watch scripted scenes happen that make anything you do entirely pointless. Changing games from one second to the other, what annoys me the most is when my players seemingly run automatically in a different ways to what i'm inputing. Or defensive players I'm not controling literally moving out of the way to open up scoring chances for attackers. In other situations you have pretty much no control. It generally ends up feeling like not matter what you do, outcomes are changed depending on what result the game aims for. Started the journey and didn't even stick with it for more than half an hour before getting bored with it. Never played oline so I can't assess that, this is just too horrible a game for me to bother. And of course the usually complaints about just generally bad gameplay, horrendous controls and outdated looking graphics.
    I'm guessing it's all about the hardcore addicts spending massive amounts of money on the online features, never actually looked at those so that part doesn't really into my opinion of this game too much. First EA game i bought in a long while, and the last. The usual quality you can expect from them.
    Critic Reviews are once again a joke. This game is just aggressively bad.

    The new features this year are quickly forgotten as you start to spend serious time playing this messy and bug filled game. Bugs that have existed since as far back as Fifa 15 & 16 are still present, apparently going unnoticed by the development team even though there are literally thousands of posts all over their own forums detailing these issues submitted by unhappy customers.
    Why do we keep coming back for more? It’s really only a lack of any real quality competition from other developers in the football simulation arena and EA sports know that so they continue to produce a sub par game and we the hopeless dreamers continue to buy this mess each year in hopes that finally we will get the game we deserve for paying £50+ every year for as long as we can remember.

    If you’re gonna buy this game, do so with very low expectations so you’re not disappointed. Other than that you could try PES but don’t be fooled by reviews, that game is a mess too.

    I think this may be my most hated FIFA. I have loved FIFA every year, but this year they have changed a lot in terms of game play. Players feel clunky and hard to maneuver, defense is made a lot harder to control than in previous years, AI is an utter tragedy as well as mostly unresponsive and unhelpful, and shooting is still ridiculously unlogical (even though it was a lot worse on firstI think this may be my most hated FIFA. I have loved FIFA every year, but this year they have changed a lot in terms of game play. Players feel clunky and hard to maneuver, defense is made a lot harder to control than in previous years, AI is an utter tragedy as well as mostly unresponsive and unhelpful, and shooting is still ridiculously unlogical (even though it was a lot worse on first release but changed with update). The two main criticisms of the ones I named above are AI and shooting. Regarding AI, I understand that most of the game play should be controlled by the user, but in some situations the AI should compensate for minimal errors carried out in the flow of game play. Some of the situations I have noticed are such that a pass that is maybe half a foot off target may often make it is as if the player completely ignores the pass altogether as if he isn't apart of the play or another situation such as an attacking player has beaten a user controlled defender but runs directly into the path of an AI controlled defender and this defender does nothing to stop the attacker. Shooting is the other criticism that is unrealistic at times. Players should not be able to do a complete 180 and be able to get perfect contact every time or be able to pull off unrealistic wonder shots from ridiculous angles with pressure on them. The only reason I am giving this game a 3 instead of a 0 is because all of the available game modes, graphics, and overall presentation of the game are just as great if not better than any other FIFA in the past. If it says anything, I have played FIFA for about 10 years and this is the first time I have wanted to stop playing or looked into playing PES as an alternate to FIFA. Expand

Most consumers buy games , or whatever else, based on product reviews and none of teh critics have been fair and honest with the people that look to them for guidance and advice on which games to spend their pocket money or hard-earned. In EAs case, it is clearly obvious, that FIFA 18 is flawed on many levels - They have made little or no effort whatsoever to improve a cult game despite the resources that they will have at their disposal. In fact I believe the game to be a major step backward from fifa 17. The reality of the user reviews compared to critics reviews, rubber stamps the obvious fact that you guys merely re-word the same old reviews without actually exploring the game yourselves and you are obviously too worried about ramifications of negative reviews from EA & Sony. There is little point in detailing the obvious flaws of the game; there are too many to list and we all know what they are. I have enjoyed FIFA for years , some versions more than others but I am shocked at the blatant laziness by EA to re-deploy the same themes & templates in different guises. Its almost as though they have dared to see how little effort they could put in whilst taking their loyal followers money. But the real culprits here are the critics - EA have just mugged us all off but the critics should have done the right thing and appraised the game for what it really is. EA will no doubt e laughing - they can clearly put out any old sh*t and they will still be lauded by the very publications that owes their articles to they readers andante their sponsors. Goes without saying that after literally decades, I will never buy fifa again ( and I do mean that!!) . I hope other follow suit. I have given 1 as the music is quite good..

    So in summary - awful game , def the worst ever. Let down by FIFA but more so by the publications that we rely on to advise us.

    On the plus side, if ever I really make it in the corporate world , its reassuring to know that collusion is still alive & well!!

    This game is so bad! If you want to play football game better go and buy PES. A lot of bugs in game engine is broken. And handicap is existing, no matter how good you are you can loose because of engine. Every pass is going to your opponent, player with 81 pace is taking your player with 94 pace in 1s. Worst fifa game ever

    Fifa 18 cuando entenderá EA que un buen juego de deportes no se trata solo de tener buenos graficos que por cierto deja mucho que desear en esta nueva entrega, un buen juego de futbol se centraliza en el gameplay mas que en graficos

    I bought this game and I deeply regretted it, I had played some FIFA but I never really liked the franchise, but I gave this one a chance and I was really enjoying it, but now it does not work.
    The game is bad, defenders seem to work on the side of the opponent, whenever I want to give a pass they deliver to the adversary and as usual, they make the goal obviously, even in the goal shot

    The game is bad, defenders seem to work on the side of the opponent, whenever I want to give a pass they deliver to the adversary and as usual, they make the goal obviously, even in the goal shot when I want to simply touch, the ball goes in a direction different and goes exactly to whom? Pro adversary who was already waiting there.
    do not have an EA whim in that **** I can not turn a player that he completely, leaves the ball free to the adversary and they are always slow, always when I look at a kick or pass, my players send to random places, I'm tired of a defender to miss a simple pass and not have competition to recover, the attackers are much faster than my defenders! no matter what team I use or am facing.
    every game in this game did not amuse me, I play soccer to have fun, but that does not allow me, and that I did not play online and never intend to play.
    FIFA18 was my first big disappointment of the year, I will never buy EA titles again, mainly from this junk.

    THE WORST! they only make efforts to please those that play FUT cause there's so many suckers spending money to buy packs. The gameplay is so scripted and annoying. They do it every year give us a good demo and a completely differnt game when its released EA is the worst just go PES guys at least the gameplay makes sense

    bad game, horrible controls, meaningless markings, every team is good enough to defeat you, matches on placements and games that FIFA loves to do, always when I need a victory or not to lose to such a weak team, everything goes wrong , any ball that I kick does not enter and it is enough a finalization of the opponent that is goal.
    I can not take this game seriously, the gameplay already

    I have played every FIFA since I was a kid (I'm 31), but now I'm finally done. The scripting in this game is awful and is clear for everyone to see. To make matters worse, EA is denying it. It's a mockery of it's players, and tbh it makes me furious. I will not buy another FIFA game until they remove scripting/momentum.

I will not buy another FIFA game until they remove scripting/momentum. It is no fun playing the game when skills have very little to do with how well you do. I understand why they do it, it makes casual/bad players think they have a shot and buy the game again and makes people buy more packs in FUT because they think there is something wrong with their players.

    The game would have been great (7/10) if not for the scripting. Sadly EA thinks about money before competitive gameplay.

    I've only played Fifa for a few weeks now and it definitely has degraded in a few areas, where 17 was better at. Mainly your AI team mates make ridiculously stupid runs and mistakes on defense.

But I still find it ridiculously hard to score sometimes and it seems like the computer poaches to many improbable goals. I also play it fully on manual, which makes it even more difficult at times I will probably either raise or lower my score in a few months, but to all the whiners that give it a zer0; just get a life why don't you.

    In English
    The problem with this video game is that EA releases it to the market on an annual basis, which is why the quality is less than how it should be perceived by users. Otherwise with PES that apparently strives more in the development of the game. Even though EA spends millions for licenses. In addition, as a company is not very interested in the opinion of video game players because EA sees that you buy this product even with bad user notes. There is a public that buys each year the game I have even pre-ordered making this into custom every year. EA should care more about how players who consider themselves fans of the FIFA game perceive.

    Each year we are facing with the same issue, EA sports releases a new version of FIFA which is partially or completely broken. The game comes out to release with such bugs that it is impossible to play. People pay for the game 50-100$, and receive a product that does not work. People tolerated it for years, but sooner or later it has to end.

    This year a new version of the game has surpassed all it's predesestors. And a huge part of the community received a completely broken mode Pro Clubs. Critical bugs that not allow to play friendly games between teams and stopped all the international tournaments held in every country of the world. Hundreds of thousands of players spend 2-3 hours of their time to play only one game each evening struggling with the broken mechanics.And these efforts do not always guarantee success. Almost 2 months as EA sports knows about this issue. It released 4 patches to the game, and not one of them did solve this problem. Players tested all possible reason and the occurrence of this error, reported all this information to support, but they do nothing.

    They spend their resources to repair the small problems of the game modes which bring them money for the donation. But it seems they forget that we already paid for the game, and had to get a quality product. We will do our best to make our voice heard and make executives who are responsible for what is happening respect their customers and players. Otherwise they will lose them, as well as reputation."

    Compared to the last 2-3 versions Fifa 18 is incredibly poorly balanced, and is the point the franchise has fallen off a cliff after going downhill for a year or two.

    Compared to the last 2-3 versions Fifa 18 is incredibly poorly balanced, and is the point the franchise has fallen off a cliff after going downhill for a year or two.

    It’s not clear what at all they are trying to achieve but this years version makes defender very slow and unresponsive, makes tackles very weak, removes strength as a stat of any importance and then adds huge benefits to skill moves and pace. The only viable method of play is to collect fast, small, skill move players. The Kane, Ibra and Costa style players are made to feel like Sunday League players. A game that is supposed to be tactical is pointless when there is only one way to play.

    These balance issues are compounded by incredibly aggressive player fatigue, poor AI positioning for defenders, goalkeepers who fumble way too often, overpowered finesse shots and a player selection system that picks the wrong player when defending about 25% of the time. Selection is made even worse through a series of scenarios where swapping player is literally locked out to you to ensure the opponent will not be punished, such as high headed clearances.

    Overall it’s a big enough drop in quality to not recommend the game.

    By rebuilding the animation system the developers managed to significantly improve footballers’ responsiveness, which results in more fluent gameplay and lets you perform tighter maneuvers. That makes attacking a real joy, but in my opinion turned defense into frustrating chore that requires too much precision. [12/2017, p.42]
