    The most complete game of the saga. FIFA 20 takes everything good from previous years and adds the futsal with Volta Football, its new and exciting story mode.

    FIFA 20 offers more of the same: lots of game modes, licenses and FUT, that will be the protagonist in the coming months, but also Volta, that surprises and can even be considered as a stand-alone game. Football fans have two great games to enjoy this year.

    FIFA 20 is fun, which is the most important thing. The developers in charge of gameplay have done just about all they can do to make this title a joy on the virtual pitch. It’s shortcomings are because of a lack of innovative improvements to core modes. That keeps it as a really good game, but a notch below great.

    FIFA 20 is not an overhaul for the series, but combines its top tier core gameplay with some neat additions such as the fun Volta game mode.

    The new additions to Fifa 20 elevate it above “standard annual update” fare.

    FIFA may be more popular than ever, but FIFA 20 is a standard bearer with no clear focus. The gameplay comes up just short of carrying the title, and while Ultimate Team is engaging in its own way, it’s the same grind it’s always been. The next-generation of home consoles is approaching, and I can’t tell if EA has run out of ideas or is running out the clock.

    Customization to modes like Volta, career mode and Pro Clubs is a step in the right direction, but FIFA 20 does little to flesh out features like press conferences and make them have more of a real impact. Players will quickly realize how similar the interface is to FIFA 19 in several modes and will be yearning for the franchise to receive a complete overhaul. With Sony and Microsoft preparing for next-generation consoles, players can only hope that the FIFA franchise also decides to evolve and significantly revamps the single-player experience next year.

From AI teams fielding their youth players, editing a players boots changes their position and overall, top 6 teams getting relegated and rosters not being updated to name a few. This has honestly been the worst launch of any Fifa I have ever bought and I have been buying since FIFA06. Stay away and wait for a patch if you are a career mode fan. Expand

I already thought FIFA 19 was a very big step back with respect to the previous one, but this one is totally s**t. I'm hearing of a lot of people complaining about the same game being proposed every year, and at this point I wish it were true. Maybe the game is not referred to my target anymore, but it would be nice if EA stopped thinking about futsal, Alex Hunter, King of the Hill and other bulls**ts like these, and started focusing about the gameplay quality. The defense changes are nonsense, there are a lot of little bugs every year that are never fixed and the servers are awful (especially during FUT champions). This is probably the last year I waste money for this company. Expand

    This year EA promised so much but fixing (which is nothing considering that they should do that in updates and not market bugfixes as "game feature"), yet are either too incompetent to actually do so or deem us too dumb to spot an obvious lie...

    Game is dead after most recent patch.
    Do not buy this game if you like football - be it virtual or real. This game plays absolutely terrible after the most recent patch. Players feel slow as trucks, dribbling is dead, passes, player switching, shooting - everything is in shambles right now.
    Its obvious EA wants to make one last cash grab before loot boxes get banned in tons of countries so they change the meta a lot with every patch. It'd somewhat acceptable if the game was playable and fun, its just not anymore.
    This game is a fraud, avoid.
