Didnt play the demo and didnt watch any gameplay videos so I really have no idea and also I refuse to spend money to be disappointed and stop early like last year.
Ill wait until the first patch comes out regardless since its usually worse after but what are your first impressions?

    It has it's share of issues (Like any release) but It's been awhile since i've enjoyed a fifa this much. Light years better than 19 IMO. Let's just hope they don't mess it up.

    And its not just about FUT. Fifa is one of those games we regularly play with friends because its football, so I am mainly interested in just how the game is overall.

    Probably why I like it so much. I always manual defend.

    Gameplay felt really sluggish and clunky on Tuesday. Was the worst gameplay in the world and then by Wednesday it was like a totally different game so am enjoying it a bit now haha

    So have I, Im old skool!!

  • It's pretty good. It is definitely one of the most fun fifas that I've played, and I've been playing since the 90s. The main issue it has is delayed/buggy player switching. They really need to fix it.

    Massive improvement on the previous years.

    More manual defending and slower gameplay are very, very welcomed.

    Worst FIFA I have played. Crossing is dead. Breaking down a defense with smart passing is dead aswell. People sit back and play ultra defensive while jockeying and playing ball magnet. All people do is trying to counter and zig zag dribble until they get lucky rebounds.

    82 Heading,88 jumping. Open header.

    Terrible game

    More user input to defend is great. Does that mean people cant defend with a single cdm the entire game?

    Thanks for your insight ppl :) much appreciated. Will wait for the 1st patch regardless.

    Uf.. Thats harsh. I see timed finishing is still a thing. Awful gimmick.

    I turned it off and seem to be doing fine without it. Because of the Smaller window for green shots plus lag it doesn't seem worth it this year.

    I constantly see "lag" in every other post here or on reddit. Is it that bad?

    Wasn't last night,Was getting 5 bars consistantly and gameplay was smooth. But weekends will be worse and you'll have lag in every game whether you notice it or not.

    Rebound galore. GK constantly parrying shots to opposition

    Defending has definitely improved the skill gap. It’s the difference between winning and losing at the moment and that’s how it should be. Easy to make mistakes if you lose concentration. There are still occasions where a loose ball goes near one of your players and he just stands there looking at it. Hopefully an easy fix.

    It’s awful honestly. I tried to like it after how bad last year was, and instead I just miss last years game compared to this clunky mess of a game

    They’ve managed to make it worse yet again, making it a solid 6 years of this incredible achievement

    This happens way too much. Your player just stares at it and won’t move while the opposition can run onto it

    The most delayed and unresponsive game I've ever played in 30 years of gaming.

    I had games on the C64 more responsive than this 😂😂

    Not even exaggerating it really is that bad. I'm waiting now for the release of MW then I won't be going anywhere near this mess.

    It is terrible. Notging but park the bus and pace abuse. Couple ghat with unplayable lag, unresponsiveness, and button delay.

    Then add in unrewarding manual tackling and terrible goal keepers.

    Unplayable

    Been playing FIFA forever. This one is sooo bad that I created a login here so I could tell EA how disappointed I am. I’d rather be playing a game in my free time. Instead I’m here because for the first time in my life I’d rather not be playing the game. Going to try the other brand next year. Tried it in the past it was always decent but EA had a variety of game modes.
