FIFA 18, was just released on September 27th, and has the whole gaming world ecstatic. FIFA 18 is the newest professional soccer video game, featuring Cristiano Ronaldo, on the cover.
FIFA is a professional soccer video game in which you can choose from many different teams to play against friends or people online. Gamers get to controller the soccer players as if they were actually playing as them. Gamers get to also control the strategies of the game such as formations, substitutions, and coaching.
FIFA 17 was an exciting game because it introduced, The Journey. This was a groundbreaking story mode feature, in which you get to be the player Alex Hunter. This is when the gamer gets to be in the shoes of Alex Hunter and help him get into the professional soccer league. You start from the beginning as a low skilled player who works his way up to playing professional soccer. FIFA 17 provided for future games with their new details of stadiums, players, and lighting.
FIFA 18 builds off of FIFA 17, in which they continue The Journey with Alex Hunter. But now, “Hunter Returns”, and is trying to play with the best players and be the most competitive. Having a video game look like and act like a real soccer game makes it more fun to play.
FIFA 18 is more than just The Journey, when gamers can play multiplayer with their friends, or even online with total strangers and compete. The new graphics make the players look even more realistic than ever.
There are some issues with the game, however, when playing the game there are some very unrealistic attributes to it, such as attacking the ball on offense seems to be the stronger point in the game compared to defense. It is very easy for a player to dribble the ball from one side of the field to the other without being stopped. This in real life would not be very realistic because it is very hard to dribble anywhere before being met by a defender forcing you to pass the ball. On the other side, defense is almost impossible when it is so hard to stay in front of your opponent. The offensive player almost seems to be faster and quicker than the defender.
Since defending the ball is so difficult, it is very easy to score and therefore scores are unrealistically high. FIFA 18 has added many new attacking features and shots that make it very easy to score. Long range shots are also very easy to orchestrate along with new dribbling features that help great players get past defenders very easily.
FIFA 18 has brought new features, details and moves to bring more success to the player. It is a great stimulating game in which the players look very realistic and introduce a very exciting game play. However, the attack mode is too strong compared to the defensive side of the game, which makes the game almost unrealistic. It is way too easy for players to score, pass and dribble around their defender and too difficult to stop that player.
This game was very enjoyable because it was very exciting and fun to play. Competing against friends is always a great time for gamers. Low scoring games are boring and frustrating when you lose a game 1-0. High scoring games make the game more interesting and competitive because players are trying to score as much as they can against their opponent as their opponent does the same. Although high scoring soccer games are not very realistic it makes the player enjoy the game more because who does not like to score. Celebrations make up for one of the most fun things to do in the game. After scoring a goal against your opponent it is great to rub it in their face as your player dances with his teammates in excitement from scoring a great goal. There are many different combinations on your controller to make an unique celebrations with your teammates after every goal your score.
Overall I would rate FIFA 18 better than FIFA 17 because of the entertainment and how exciting it is to play. The graphics and details of the players are much better and there are many more options like continuing The Journey with Alex Hunter. Scoring makes the game more fun and it is much easier to do so in this game. I am glad I bought this game and play it very often with my friends. I recommend to anyone who is a big soccer gamer or just a sports video game fan to go grab the new FIFA 18. FIFA 18 will have you and your friends glued to the television playing against each other for hours.
