    EA has gone to great pains to incorporate their new license into the title and it shows from the game modes all the way up to the game’s tagline. Champions Rise and so has this franchise to the occasion.

    FIFA 19 reaffirms the series' strengths, even if some smaller problems, like not so real-like player models and a bad commentary keep it from reaching a better score. It still holds strong thanks to very good and even more refined gameplay, new licenses like UEFA Champion's League and the Italy's Serie A, a more accessible FUT mode and a great soccer feeling overall. Definitely the game to have for soccer fans.

    While Kick-Off's party games in particular are a highlight, FIFA 19 improves upon last year's outing in almost every department. One of the best football games around, FIFA 19 delivers the most fluid and fun entry yet, and is the kick up the backside the series needed. Back of the net.

    Honestly, I love soccer. I played it obsessively in my youth. I watch it when I can. It is my favorite sport by far, so it is with a heavy heart that I would say that a better option for sports fans looking for a visceral experience that is sorta, kind of, somewhat similar to soccer might find solace in NHL 19. That, of course, doesn’t apply to people who just want to play soccer and don’t care much for other sports. That’s okay, because this is definitely a good soccer game. It’s just not as good as it could be. It should be immediately apparent, due to a lack of modes, if this game isn’t for you. For that reason, I might suggest renting the game before jumping in feet first.

    FIFA 19 is basically the Paul Pogba edition of the series, focusing on creating excitement, showing off and trying to ensure every match is full of memorable moments… the problem is it’s all a bit much at times.

    FIFA 19's headline new feature, the Champions League, adds to an already slick and fine tuned package, but it's the subtle gameplay tweaks that have made EA's latest such a big success. On the pitch FIFA offers more control than ever before, finally making for a game that isn't just about showing off to mates.

    FIFA 19 has a lot of content and features that will entertain players offline and online for hours. It still has authenticity with what is needed to let us feel we have control over a broadcasted football game. It is a better version than FIFA 18 but it is still too keen on delivering a too spectacular soccer experience at all costs.

    I can't understand why there's so much hate about FIFA 19. If you like FIFA and you enjoy it (meaning know how to play it) you'll be pleased. Peace

    I honestly do not know why this game gets so much hate. Ok, I get that EA has a terrible reputation after SW Battlefield 2 and loot boxes etcI honestly do not know why this game gets so much hate. Ok, I get that EA has a terrible reputation after SW Battlefield 2 and loot boxes etc but to score this game as a 0 is really childish.

    Whilst it is not a remarkable upgrade on FIFA 18, I actually appreciate that it plays a decent game of football, nothing groundbreaking but enjoyable.

    I feel that the passes have weight and the variable ways of scoring goals and playing to your individual player's strengths is good enough.

    Whilst I do accept that charging full price for this year's effort if you already have FIFA 18 is difficult to justify but taking the game on its own merits (and ignore the fact that it is an EA game) and I actually enjoy it.

    Like others have mentioned, I do wish tho that more time and effort had been spent on the career mode. The fact that it is almost identical to last years effort is pretty lazy and as I don't play the FUT mode, it is where I spend most of my time.

    If this had been a biannual release I think it would have been viewed in a very different light. Take some time out EA as Ubisoft did with Assasins Creed, refine your product and bring us more of what we want. Listen to feedback for once. They won't however, as people continue to buy year after year ( I didn't buy it, I have it shared with my brother in law).

    7.5 for me

    Game play is too slow, passing is slow, animations look like players are skating around the pitch with no weight. Add the above to no majorGame play is too slow, passing is slow, animations look like players are skating around the pitch with no weight. Add the above to no major changes to career mode or pro-clubs in favour of The Journey, a mode which last 8 hours at best and has little to no replay-ability, and of course Ultimate Team.

    I don't recommend this casino disguised as a game of football at all.

    EA, what have you done to my Fifa?

    EA, what have you done to my Fifa?
    I am not mad, it's just sad that we'll have to wait another 365 expecting you to bring a real football game. Clearly, we can see a Staff worried about making improvements only to gain more money. The game itself was not improved, this game has the the worst mechanics ever. I don't feel like I am in control of my players, the AI is donkey. They walk when they have to run, they don't stretch to block a slow pass.

    Let me ask you EA: Did you test your own game? If so, how did you conclude that Fifa 19 is a good game? IT'S NOT FOOTBALL EA! Except for the game-artists who built the graphics and user interface, everyone should be fired.
