I spent £79.99 on this game with promises of a revamped career mode. A more immersive version of the career mode editions that we've had in the past. But no, we've got absolutely nothing new, in fact it's a step backwards. How can anyone using FIFA have any modicum of trust in EA after this? It's a shameful blatant attempt to push users away from career mode and towards Ultimate Team, because after all, that's where EA gets their money from. Well... after defrauding you of £59.99+ on release day.
A whole calendar year. That's how long EA have had to improve this game, to satisfy everyone who has been and has become committed to playing football games. That's enough time to fix things that could be improved. Hell, several reddit users have written their own code fixing the game. But EA won't use it. Why? Because it's not part of their prerogative. I've tried to get a refund from Sony and said no, and that's fine. I shouldn't have forked out the money in the first place, I should have waited to see the reviews come in.
It's embarrassing that I've spent my own hard-earned money on this game.
It's humiliating that I spend my time actively looking to see if career mode has been fixed.
It's disturbing that EA have had a year to fix, progress and test their game modes and didn't.
This will be the last FIFA I buy. I hope that governments everywhere start to crack down on the exploitation of teenagers, the exposure that young people are having on a financially null game. Once those FIFA points are in the bank, they never come back out. No FIFA 21 squad loyalty for Ultimate Team after spending money on this year's edition, just a gaping hole that they become desperate to fill because EA have managed to (very deliberately) get teenagers hooked on gambling.
EA's lack of morals, ethics and honesty is an absolute disgrace.
Deleting people's suggestions to other users to get a refund.
Refusing to acknowledge responsibility for their own game not being tested.
Rotten to the core.
