Wonderful and distasteful all at once, it entertains and fails in turns, like Frank Worthington. But I loved watching Frankie.

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.

‎I am very happy with this new installment. FIFA 22 introduces us to the biggest gameplay change for years to bring more realism to a game mode that although it does not need it, if it brings it closer to the sport from which it is nourished. Whether the changes are positive or negative will also help the time and opinion that is formed throughout the season. But that we have to learn again to play and to look for ingenuity and strategies with which to succeed again in the game modes I see something positive.‎

As a football game, FIFA 22 is very continuist. It doesn't offer anything spectacular or revolutionary in order to make you stand up from your seat, but it takes profit of its previous knowledge to provide some nice matches.

EA Sports has delivered a strong next-gen experience with FIFA 22. The primary focus was on gameplay and the attention led to a tangible improvement overall. However, the feature set is still in need of more layers.

FIFA 22 incorporates enough novelties in its game system to vary the rhythm of the matches and improve the experience. A great simulator, punctuated by the importance of microtransactions and the absence of major developments in its different modalities.

FIFA 22 is the most interesting and deep entry in the series from years to date, thanks to its new physics, AI and level of details. FIFA 22 gives players a game finally balanced, where defenders have the same power of attackers. The spectacular and televised identity of the franchise, though, is always the same, but this comes as a silent revolution which, if not muted after a couple of match in the name of metagame and pro gaming, it could be a great start for the future.

FIFA 22 is here for a new season, and while there are some inspiring changes, the same old own-goals keep coming back.

FIFA 22 adds some big improvements to the way the game functions, and better yet, makes the game feel even better as you play. Add to that some big changes to modes like Career Mode, and FIFA 22 is a huge improvement from past entries.

Fifa 22 is absolutely unmistakably a Fifa game – it has the sophistication and polish we’ve come to expect, with all the player likenesses, authentic stadia and recognisable commentators we see every year. But right at the core of it is a match engine that feels more surefooted than ever, at a time when the game’s more tactically complex rival Pro Evolution Soccer has been relegated to a free-to-play existence with all the compromises that will inevitably entail. If you can live with the loot-box trickery of Ultimate Team, this is a gigantic, rewarding simulation that offers a ton of variety and scope, and many, many moments of exquisite goalmouth drama.

It feels like the EA Vancouver team has done a job to strengthen the immersion. The "Hypermotion" technology brings that much desired extra realism and authenticity, the gatekeepers are finally credible and the ball physics is more advanced. However, FIFA 22 is not the expected revolution, especially because the new features have little influence on the gameplay.

As always, new FIFA game tries to fix the problems of its predecessors, while making the necessary updates to the core gameplay, in this case, turning FIFA 22 into more methodical and realistic game.
