    Despite promising "the greatest leap in gameplay in FIFA's history", FIFA 18 is a product quite similar to FIFA 17 in which there are small improvements, but not major revolutions.

    FIFA 18 does everything FIFA 17 did, but better. The Return of Alex Hunter is a much-improved version of last year mode and turns out to be a must play for everyone who owns this game. Visuals are stunning but gameplay is still the king on the best game of the most played sport of the world.

    FIFA 18 is what many folks wanted FIFA 17 to be. Overall, it's the best soccer game money can buy right now.

    There was nothing outright “wrong” with last year’s product, but there was room for improvement. It seems EA Canada was receptive to what could alter things for the better, as many beneficial changes proliferate 18. Gameplay feels much more natural and welcoming, equating to more accessibility. The ways to play are well thought out and varied, adding to replay value. And the garnish of presentation scores big, leading to a pleasant sensory experience. If you like soccer and video games, give this serious consideration.

    Ultimately, FIFA 18 introduces enough new ideas to suggest it’s not sitting on the laurels of its success. However, it’s a simplified experience, one that fails to embrace the complexity of football at the highest level. Its focus on attack makes for spectacular matches, but they often feel like extravagant offensive training sessions than a proper match with depth and strategy.

    While FIFA 18 may not excel in every area and has some issues on the pitch, the game offers great value and something for everyone. The story mode is excellent, career mode is improved, the online suite of features is especially strong and everything surrounding the pitch such as the visuals, presentation and atmosphere work to enhance the moments that make the sport so exciting.

    It's off the pitch that EA excels. From the variety of game modes on offer and how everything's presented, to the constant updates in FUT's Team of the Week, Daily Objectives, and discussion of real-world happenings in commentary, FIFA 18 captures the world of football and confidently translates it into a video game. On the pitch, however, EA's soccer series is still lagging far behind PES 2018's more fluid, satisfying football.

I do not understand low user scores for Fifa 18 since I think it is one of the best Fifa’s and my favourite right now in 2021. Probably users were right since it had goalkeeper problems and too effective finence shots at launch. However finence shots were optimized in first title update and goalkeepers were improved in 3 different title updates. Still if you are not happy from goalkeepers you can improve them from options menu skillers (I adjusted to 55 and perfectly balanced now). Regarding graphics, animations and most of all gameplay is amazing. Shots, passes, defending and CPU AI is great. After buying fifa 21 i hated the game and I regret I bought it. I decided to try old Fifa games and downloaded Fifa 18 and I was so surprised. For me Fifa 18 is the best football game now .I am a Career Mode player and I enjoy it so much.It is a great improvement on Fifa 17 basis. Additionally World Cup 2018 is very enjoyable and licensed. Regarding online I will not comment because I did not play much.
    This game is hundred times better than Fifa 21 and Fifa 20 and better than Pes 2020 and 2021.

    In conclusion, even today in 2021 January I strongly recommend all players to give Fifa 18 a try. A final hint will be that for Fifa 18 EA finished gameplay title updates in January 2018 (4 months from launch) whereas in last Fifa games it continoues till May. It shows how gameplay is better in my opinion.
    Enjoy Fifa18 , In these quarantine days you will thank me.

    Sports games should be fun. It is not simple enough to defend or shoot and therefore no fun.
    Sure, if you want to waste your life trying to get good at something that doesn't matter, you might become OK at it, but for anyone who isn't a loser and wants to play a fun game, this is not it.

Caso contrario con PES que al parecer se esfuerzan más en el desarrollo del juego. A pesar de que EA gasta millones por las licencias. Además, como empresa no le interesa mucho la opinión de los jugadores de videojuegos porque EA ve que le comprar este producto aún con malas notas de los usuarios. Hay público que le compra cada año el juego he incluso lo pre ordenan convirtiendo esto en costumbre de cada año. EA debería preocuparse más en cómo perciben los jugadores que se consideran fans del juego FIFA.

    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.

The game comesEach 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.
