FIFA 22 may not be the revolutionary and unique version we expected, but it does come with positive changes and additions.

Wonderful and distasteful all at once, it entertains and fails in turns, like Frank Worthington. But I loved watching Frankie.
FIFA 22 paves the way for a new generation of more realistic and intelligent FIFA games thanks to Hypermotion technology, but its content remains refined with a focus on Ultimate competitions rather than any other playing phase.
FIFA 22: Legacy Edition on Nintendo Switch is another infuriating release in the series.
Microtransactions still loom large, but small iterative changes and the horsepower of new-gen consoles combine to make FIFA 22 feel like a worthwhile upgrade without needing anything revolutionary or terribly exciting from EA's side.
Solid gameplay improvements overshadowed by the fact EA Sports still hasn't tackled FUT's loot box problem.
A superb second next-gen season on the digital turf – but subtle Ultimate Team tweaks amplify the 'pay to win' criticisms that stalk this series annually.
There aren't many notable changes in FIFA 22. My Career is still the most dynamic mode, and that's not saying much
FIFA 22 excels on the pitch with a patient and more methodical style, but additions elsewhere are only incremental and microtransactions still leave a bad taste.
I’ve been impressed by my time with FIFA 22 thus far, with it shaping up to be one of the tightest entries in the series so far. While it doesn’t offer a great deal in terms of new modes, the improvements made to existing staples of the series such as Ultimate Team, Pro Clubs, and Volta are all welcome, helping to diversify current modes and make them much more distinguishable. We’ll have our full review soon.
