Powered by Frostbite, EA SPORTS FIFA 18 blurs the line between the virtual and real worlds, bringing to life the players, teams, and atmospheres of The World’s Game. Move with Real Player Motion Technology to unlock Dramatic Moments in the world’s most Immersive Atmospheres. And go on a global journey with a star-studded cast of characters in The Journey: Hunter Returns. In FIFA Ultimate Team, FUT ICONS, featuring Ronaldo Nazário and other football legends, are coming to FIFA 18.
POWERED BY FROSTBITE
Attention to innovation in true-to-life action, new football worlds and character depth, Frostbite helps to further blur the lines between the virtual and real worlds. Using movie studio-style advanced shadowing and occlusion techniques to benefit character rendering and overall pitch presentation, FIFA 18 delivers the most visually arresting and authentic football simulation ever.
Real Player Motion Technology: The all-new, game-changing animation system utilizes pose trajectory matching on every frame to deliver the franchise’s most responsive and fluid gameplay ever. New motion capture techniques and frame by frame animation transitions ensure gameplay accurately represents the reality of football. Real Player Motion Tech is the catalyst for an increased fidelity in movement for every player on the pitch, immediately taking authenticity to another level.
Player Personality: Six new character archetypes and new player mapping technology differentiate players on the pitch to give them their own distinct identity. For the first time ever, real-world movements, size and attributes inform how a player moves, allowing you to feel the life-like tendencies of the world’s best. Ronaldo’s signature sprint, Sterling’s unique turns, and Robben’s distinct arm movement are all immediately recognizable in FIFA 18.
Dribbling Overhaul: In FIFA 18, you will run at defenders with confidence knowing that the best players can change direction on a dime. New dribbling mechanics enable players to inject more creativity into 1v1 situations. Take more defined touches, make tighter turns, and explode into attack more dynamically than ever before.
Responsive: Creative on-ball skills, contextual touches, and a re-imagining of the control dribble mechanic give players new options when building up attacks in tight spaces. Change direction with ease and feel your player respond when you escape a defender lunging to tackle.
Explosive: Authentic and dynamic speed-based animations allow you to explode more rapidly from controlled touches into full tilt sprints.
TEAM STYLES AND POSITIONING
New Player Positioning: With more freedom in motion, your teammates examine the pitch and react accordingly; darting forward in coordinated runs, or moving into space to provide consistent attacking support. New player positioning gives you a well-balanced and spread pitch with more opportunities in time and space to read the play.• Team Styles: A deep set of authentic playing styles attributed to several teams put the most-recognized tactics on the pitch in FIFA 18 - now in AI you will immediately recognize the tiki-taka of some of Europe’s best clubs or the high-pressing style of teams in the Premier League. Feel a change in defensive and attacking approaches every time you choose a new club or opponent.
Dynamic Quick Substitutes: All-new context based substitution prompts allow players to easily make changes without pausing the match. Whether it's a missed chance, or necessary response to conceding a goal, you can instantly decide if a change is needed without visiting the menu.
Regional Atmospheres: Authentic sun positions, cinematic atmosphere grading, signature pitch-side fixtures, authentic broadcast overlays in La Liga and MLS, on-pitch debris, club and stadium specific banners, adaptive commentary, and changes in pitch quality all come together to bring the most immersive football experiences to life in FIFA 18.• High-Def Dynamic Crowds: All-new individual crowd reactions and expanded regional chant support have you feeding off the energy of your supporters. Hear authentic chants build as you mount an attack, incite realistic excitement when you score and even interact with the crowd while celebrating.
Wonder Goals: New locomotion and finishing animations unlock more fluid striking and heading, combining to increase the potential for more dramatic finishes. Player Personality ensures the heroes of the game stand tall in the biggest moments, finishing more often on the biggest stages.
New Crossing Control: All-new crossing controls provide the player with a variety of options to put the ball into the box, creating dynamic attacking chances. Whipped to the spot, arching, and back-stick crosses increase the variety of delivery to accurately pick out the attacking player.

And with all that in mind here is fifa 18! It feels like it has just changed things for the sake of it and has made things more complicated just so it can claim it's not the same game as last year, so I hope your happy, because I'm certainly not. First off I'm visually impared, and with that in mind loved fifa 17's high contrast black theme, and they got rid of it. Why? Well because nothing can stay the same, nothing! And the writing in this game is thus much, much harder for me to read, but even not coming from a VI perspective the grey theme in 18 simply looks nowhere near as good as fifa 17's.
And now we come on to the killer. The thing for me that killed fifa 18 so much I gave my copy away to a charity shop. People have been complaining forever that the career mode is just the same as last year. And the career mode in 18 has had a massive overhall...and it's utterly dreadful. Before you disagree like mad, again this is a game from a series that releases a game every year based on the world's most popular sport, it's not bought just by die hard football fans, casuals like me buy it too. With that in mind lets discuss transfers. Now you by players buy adding them to your shortlist then approaching to buy, enquiring about them etc. A completely pointless middle man step which add literally nothing other than wasting your time. Oh and good luck finding a player to buy. I kid you not playing as Grimsby town I added a full page of players to my shortlist,in transfer season...couldn't find one, not one that was available to bid for. All of them, every single one had apparently been bought too recently by their club. Again how is this good exactly? In previous fifas you can't bid for any player, I don't know the exact conditions tbf, but not every player accepts bids, so why they had to make it this hard is beyond me.
But wait! Once you've finally found a player to bid for(I did playing as Leeds...but Leeds isn't as desperate for good players as Grimsby so...) you then have to enter into negotiations via cutscenes or get a lacky to do it and skip the cutscenes. But you can't enter a single amount to offer, because of course you can't you have to select a don't go higher than and starting figure. And then more cutscenes yay! You then have to negotiate with the player including special clauses etc...You do know this is a football game right? As in a game where you play football? This isn't a football manager game, but with all this admin crap it feels like one. Do you really think, say a person who works a 5 day 9-5 job and only plays games casually will have the patience to go through all of that? Really!? Because I certainly don't, and if you pick a crap team like Grimsby and need a good lot of players fast, and to sell lots, yeah, no...I gave up...Seriously. I don't know what the gameplay is like as I'm not even joking I was playing this game for nearly an hour without playing a single game. Not one game, in a football game. Because remember on top of all those negotiations, you have training to sort out, emails, the youth academy. I honestly think EA is trolling us, saying like ok you want change, take this then! As this game is definitely different from last years fifa, but this just goes to show why you shouldn't always listen to the customer, the customer most certainly isn't always right.
Sure if you just want a game there's the usual kick off, tournaments etc. But in previous fifas the career mode felt like a good balance of matches and admin stuff. And you can't turn it off, there's no simple mode or anything like that. And this all to mask that beyond career mode(and ultimate team I think, I don't play that) it's the same game as last year.
So in summary, well done! You've got your wish! This game isn't the same as last years! But unfortunately it isn't a football game anymore, it's a football manager game with some mode like kick off, tournaments etc for anyone who actually wanted a football game not a football manager game. So yeah, just stick to fifa 16(fifa 17 isn't bad, but fifa 16 is perfect). It still has training, you can loan players for two years like in this game, you can auto replace players if they're injured etc before a match just for one game, you still have women's leagues. You have everything in fifa 16, the only thing this has is an updated career and ultimate team mode. But career mode is awful and buying a game just for ultimate team surely isn't worth it, meaning in my opinion this game has absolutely nothing, nothing to offer that fifa 16 hasn't that's actually any good.
A few updates, but depending if you update the game, very different defending from the original package, to the later versions.
A great free update was the world cup mode. But a bit daft that the new kits were not updated in the offline version even if the wc kits were added to the game.
I enjoy career mode, and playing with mates online and at home, but feel a poor relation to the people putting cash into FUT (fifa ultimate team), however, I guess I'm a poor relation to them, since i have the game, and don't spend any cash on gambling on pack, to try and get a 100 to 1 chance on getting a world class player to beat gobby pre teens online.
Pro evo has the better team building options, but not the official shine fifa has, so still the better option.
I'll be buying fifa 19, but not preordering, I'll look for the best deal on a non special edition. Still the best football game, but far from perfect.
This is very expensive for what it is as usual but it is nice to play though. Looks good on the ps4 and you can see the visual improvements but the actual gameplay has improved and hasn't. The defending is very tricky whereas in 17 it wasn't and it's easier to give away penalties. It's good when your attacking though as opponents have the same problem.
It is fun to play ultimate team and I have gotten good players from packs which encourages me to play. Also the new squad building challenges and the increased players in the game too.
Pro clubs is also fun to play with friends too. It's nice as you can control one of the 11 players on your team and define how the game goes by your movement and the things you do to help or aid team mates. Hence I have given 4 stars as it is still fun to play.
I have had the game since release day also.
Also EA is evil.
