Good - but the same old problems persist
4 September 2018
Good game, far better then previous years.
Graphically it's much better and the animations are great. Feels really good to play.
Losing the champions league licencing is a massive shame and the lack of authentic teams is disappointing but to be honest I'm not all that bothered. I like creating my own teams and kits.
Yet again Microsoft deny it's players the ability to install options files like on the ps4 and pc. They continue to blame konami but it's not them, it's Microsoft who don't allow this for some reason.
Gameplay is very good but you still get strange issues where I find players running away from the ball leaving gaping gaps for attackers to just run through.
Heading is a joke when defending. Your players won't jump so you just have to hope the opposition miss.
Tackling is a mixed bag. The opposition never foul you. I've never once won a penalty. Refs can give cards for anything. It's very inconsistent.
Love the masters league. Really enjoy developing youth players which it rewarding.
The menus and sound are outdated but I don't have major issues with it. Doesn't impact my enjoyment really
Overall I'm enjoying it but konami really need to address the issues at some point to have any chance of toppling FIFA.
