    Regardless of what you want out of a soccer game, FIFA continues to deliver an incredible, all-around experience.

    Ultimate Team has been made more appealing by a fairer and more rewarding structure, but it’s the gameplay changes that add fluidity, precision, and reliability to the play that make FIFA 19 the best game the series has seen this generation.

    More transformative features would've been nice, but this is still FIFA, and it's still superb. [Nov 2018, p.70]

    FIFA 19 continues being brilliant off the pitch, but this iteration also contains some really interesting gameplay enhancements for the soccer itself. Not a revolutionary game, but a nice evolution for the series.
  5. 80
    When it comes to modes and features, FIFA 19 merely tweaks the formula rather than going full on Tinkerman with it but if you want an almost perfect simulation of football, EA deliver once again.
  6. 80
    The changes to gameplay, addition of house rules to kick-off mode and refinements to Ultimate Team make this an improvement on last year, and the third chapter of The Journey is the deepest yet. But fans of the old-fashioned career mode will continue to be disappointed.

    Yes, FIFA 19 is largely the same game you got last year, especially if you don’t care about the campaign mode, The Journey. That said, it reliably delivers the excellent soccer simulation fans are looking for. While the new features don’t compliment what’s already there, they also don’t hinder an otherwise solid experience. Those who start playing FIFA 19 will find it very difficult to stop.

    I was playing PES until 2016. It all changed and I turned it to FIFA.
    FIFA from 2016 to 2019 has made small and steady progress. Other times it removes a good one and adds 3 new good features at other times simply adds good features without removing anything from the previous successful. I was expecting this year with great impatience and of course I had the curiosity of a competitor who was quite upgraded compared to last year. In order not to get tired, however, I will quickly tell you my opinion about the new FIFA. I liked it very much. New Kick off modes take off the game and you can laugh with your friends enough. Prototype and well-received. The Champions League and the Europa League welcomed these as well.
    Sooner or later, these events would end up in the hands of EA SPORTS.
    Transfers new, improved stadiums, new correct jerseys except some jerseys belonging to the rest of the world. Missing the Russian Championship. Striking new animations and expressions on faces are becoming more and more plausible. Heavy gameplay and even much slower than FIFA 18. Shooting is quite different to 18 in the bad sense for me as do the goalkeepers who are quite overpowerd. I think it's a custom theme. At fifa2020, I'm sure we will all write that speed has improved and we will have to complain about something else. Otherwise, what is the reason for each year to make a new FIFA.Without exaggeration, however, they would not be able to make FIFA every year and charge it for a mere 70 euro, but to make something like a paid patch that puts all the new transfers and jerseys and if they want to add something as new as this year the house rules and that bad addition with the perfect shot make out a DLC. In conclusion, I think that someone who did not get FIFA 18 and is still with FIFA 17 is a perfect upgrade and will be happy 400%. But if you own FIFA 18 you will not be so happy and I would suggest that you expect the price to fall to 40 euros.

    Review of gameplay only

    Major clear issues
    1. Finishing is a disaster is way far from reality. When close to the keeper its almost impossible to score. When being from the keeper, it's hard to score. If you try to get closer to the keeper, the 60pace defender will stop a 90 pace offensive player.

    2. Passing is very very slow. One touch quick passing is difficult. I need to press the pass button way before the ball reaches a players foot in order to execute a one touch pass. Many offensive quick plays are killed off because of a player taking so much time to pass. i.e. time to receive the ball , adjust the position and then pass, rather immediately executing a one touch pass.

    3. Reaction to any command button is very slow. Eg. A player will take a second to respond to a trick command making the defender always faster to steal the ball before the offense executes the trick . Eg. delayed response to one time passing as in point (2).

    4. Bicycle kicks. Overpowered, overexecuted, unrealistic.

    5. Fast Breaks: Even if the offensive player is all alone approaching the keeper, the defender is very much likely to catch him and kill off the chance...

    Overall,
    Apart from the major issues mentioned above, Fifa 19 is more realistic than Fifa 18 but less entertaining. Fifa 18 was addictive, was fun, kept my friends and myself on our toes focused and excited during the game. Fifa 19 is slow and unentertaining.
    While Fifa has been trying to make the game as realistic as possible, it needs to keep in mind that, at the end of the day, this is a video game. It can't replicate a 90minute game in a typical 12 min video game match.
    Making finishing very hard, making scoring and creating chances as well as other initiatives in the attempt to make the game more realistic, is killing the entertainment in the game
    This is a video game designed for entertainment.
    A division 1 player should clearly look better in gameplay than a division 4-5.
    In fifa 19, the gameplay is so tight and restricted that you can hardly distinguish a division 1 player from a division 5. Again, this kills entertainment and competition between fifa players.

    PS. Its known that FIFA players would hardly admit that another FIFA player is better than them. In FIFA 19, the game is limited in its offensive options and is almost impossible to come across as the better FIFA player than your friends
