I agree with this 100%. They’ve made FIFA just awful to play if you actually want a SIM type experience. Fully aimed at casual gamers and the defending is just...abysmal.How this scores a 9 for gameplay is beyond me.....it’sthe most awful tracking and non existent defending.....Football games are on thier knees imo....it’s like they have gone backwards by 10 years....
I am definitely a casual gamer these days, but as you say, this years release has definitely surprised me. I'm enjoying it more than in recent years.I ended up buying this years version with some birthday money i had sitting.
I'd consider myself a casual FIFA player - dont get to play it as much these days.
I must admit to being pleasantly surprised.
It plays a decent game of football (not what you would watch on the tv but console football )
Controls seem to be responsive, i'm losing as many as i am winning but enjoying it never the less.
I dont tend to get involved in the whole paying for packs with real money (which is no doubt the evil part), instead just jogging along with a reasonably crap team for now
