After being excited for 5 months prior to release date, I've been very much dissapointed and frustrated by EA. This game, FIFA18, is just a money grabbing game.
-Switching players is the worst ever in this FIFA. It's slow and it takes you 2/3 seconds, which you don't have because you're too late, to switch to the player that you want to control. I've changed from ''air balls'' to ''auto'' because to me it was unplayable.
-The AI makes so many ''minor'' mistakes in the penaltybox, but never gets fauled, but when I do simular things, I get fauled. It's rediculous.
-Defending is rediculous, not realistic at all. It takes years for a player to turn, the players feel unresponsive and one attempted interception can leave your whole defence exposed.
-Players faces haven't been updated, only a couple ones. How is it possible, that they have a deal with Real Madrid, but players like Asensio and Casimero are unscanned? And I probably forget a lot of topplayers in the top leagues without scans. ''authenticity'' great, marketing guys.
-Signs of scripting are there again. I've been in more than 20 games against the AI and conceded tons of late equalizers, while they only created 1/2 shots in the entire game. It also feels like the AI decides ''oh, we need a goal, let's buttonbash to their penaltybox and score''. It's becomming funny because you can sense when this is going to happen.
-I've stopped playing online, because defending is just bad. It has become an adrenaline game, ping pong and see who can score the most goals.
I'm curious if there are going to be patches and updates, because it desperatly needs it.
