    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.

    Let me get this straight, this is a great game. I had some of my best moments in fifa period with fifa 18.
    The attacking is flued and i love it to bits but, a big but...

    The AI and some of your own players they just decide when to play well and when not to. I'm not the best player by any means but i can usually beat the AI in legendary.n Sometimes your players just stand and watch as the ball passes them, they are lazy. And the AI are sometimes useless and on other times unbeatable but not in the good way , You cant touch them, and when you do. U get a red card.
    PLease fix it ea

    Amount of scripting in squad battles and online gaming is incredible. This game is a disgrace among Fifa's. Even worse than Fifa 17.

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.

    The gameplay of FIFA
    FIFA 18 is not only the worst football game ever created, it's also one of the worst games EVER created. Here's why:

    The gameplay of FIFA 18 has been the same since FIFA 09, so when you use 8 year old gameplay things are bound to go to **** Lets talk about the defense, SPOILER ALERT: It's **** The AI of your teammates are absolute garbage, if you dont select them they stand around like a bunch of dumbasses just looking at the opposite team dominating them. And the B button is defending.. right ? WRONG. The b button doesn't do **** Its like its created to murder the opposite team member instead of going and taking the ball from him. Also what a huge problem is that your passes never go to the person you want. If i wonna pass to the guy infront of me it passes to guy behind the guy infront of me. Scoring in this game is also absolute bull****, basically if you have a guy that can shoot you are screwed because one little tap and the goal goes right in. The goalkeepers are also absolutely useles.

    FIFA 18 has no reason to exist, all the ''changes'' they made in FIFA 18 could've been implemented into FIFA 17 with a goddamn patch.

    I have nothing to say on ''The Journey'' well... nobody really cares about it.

    What makes this game even worse is the stupid Pay2Win system, you obviously get better players if you pay real money instead of just playing and buying them with coins. Its surprising nobody says anything about it.

    Summary: This game is a big pile of **** that should be avoided, i know people over the age of 4 dont really but this game but still. If you think this is a good present, think again. If you keep thinking about it contact me so i can slap you in the face so badly that you HAVE to think about something else, this game is just atrocious.
