Average User Score: 1.7Oct 5, 2018I would describe myself as an avid fan of football games, and over the last 20 years have owned nearly all Fifa's and have spent many manyI would describe myself as an avid fan of football games, and over the last 20 years have owned nearly all Fifa's and have spent many many hours playing them, however Fifa 19 in my opinion is the worse in the franchise since fifa 64, visually it's fantastic the presentation and graphics are second to none especially with the inclusion of CL and Europa League licensing.
But that's where it ends, on the pitch where the game truly matters or to me should do it's found wanting, gameplay is unrealistic to say the least, the ball shoots around like a pinball, including hitting the post or crossbar 5 times a match if not more ,the Goalkeepers AI makes Massimo Taribi look like a world beater at times and 50/50's are about as effective as a chocolate teapot, there are so many other areas of the gameplay as well that it feels like an unfinished game (FYI I've spent about 25 hours playing this on my own and with others).
If the above still leaves you undecided this might help, the Fifa franchise to EA sports is now quite clearly developed to be its cash cow, Ultimate Team which generates huge revenue for EA has been revamped but all other modes in my opinion have fallen to the waste side, an example of this is the career mode which has had no changes at all except everything now has a tinge of blue and the champions league music is in the game due to the new licenses.
So in a summary, Fifa 19 is a repackaged Fifa 18 with poorer gameplay, lack of game updates especially career mode where there are none and slightly improved graphics… Expand
