FIFA. A new iteration releases every year and always manages to steal the hearts of an absolutely massive amount of gamers. I remember sitting amongst friends as they chat about matches, scores, players; all whilst I had no idea what language they were speaking, sitting there and staring at the ceiling. One of the games that I know generally nothing about and therefore here’s your review roundup, from people who actually know what they’re doing… We’ve selected four reviews from other critics for you to sink your teeth into. Enjoy!
Polygon – 9/10 (Full Review Here)
“FIFA 18 is still seductively deep and delivers excitement. It gave me the feeling that there is still so much to learn about what appears to be a rather straightforward sport, and that the game would gladly help me understand. This is always the time of year when I ask myself why I don’t just spend all of my time playing FIFA, and FIFA 18 poses the question more forcefully than ever.”
IGN – 8.1/10 (Full Review Here)
“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.”
GearNuke – 7.5/10 (Full Review Here)
“FIFA 18 feels like a rather minor step up from the previous game. The biggest change is the Journey Mode but the rest of the improvements feel rather minor. This doesn’t mean FIFA 18 is a terrible game, since it is still fun to play. It just doesn’t feel like a bigger step forward like FIFA 17. FIFA 18 offers a great story mode this year with the return of Alex Hunter, but when it comes to improvements to the general gameplay, there is not much to gain here.”
“This game is a massive step up from every entry in the current gen, and the subtle yet noticeable improvements offer a solid gameplay experience in comparison to previous iterations. FIFA 18 is a gorgeously created representation of the much loved sport that houses a more authentic atmosphere than any other football game to date. It doesn’t matter what you’re coming into this game for, everything from the campaign to each of the well structured modes will easily keep you satisfied until this time next year, and then some.”
