Summary

FIFA is reborn with an all-new defense system and physics engine that puts complete control in the player's hands. It's not just an evolution in soccer games; it's a revolution in sports games.

We like

  • Defense is finally fun
  • Realist physics engine
  • Depth of game modes

We dislike

  • A.I. is a bit off
  • Random glitches
  • Some new features need time to evolve
