Critic Reviews for FIFA 18 - Nintendo Switch Edition

Ultimately, FIFA 18 on Switch is a story of what could have been. Watered-down game modes give the whole experience a feeling of it being a work-in-progress rather than the complete package offered in the PS4 and Xbox One version. If you only want a quick FIFA fix in single-player or local play, the Switch version delivers. But it's such a diluted, Sunday League experience it's impossible to recommend if you're already playing on home consoles.

Probably the best portable football game there's ever been, but it's not really FIFA 18 and the limited online options drastically limit its appeal.

Though slimmed down compared to other iterations, this version has enough features to make it enjoyable

Being able to play FIFA on the go or with a friend is gratifying, and if you're happy to just play through Career Mode for the next year, then this port will satisfy your needs and is the best mobile FIFA you can buy, but compared to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions, this port is inferior in every other way.

FIFA 18 on Switch is a competent football game, but gameplay and game modes-wise it's not the same game seen on PS4 and Xbox One

We can justify certain absences due to hardware limitations, but FIFA 18 for Nintendo Switch has too many unexcused disappearances of game modes and features.

A dated version of FIFA, then, but still a fun one, with plenty to build on for next year.

The dream of having a proper version of FIFA that you can take outside with you is finally here, except it's essentially a port of a three-year-old game… Does that really matter? Well, it depends on how desperate you are to play FIFA on a handheld. This is by far the best version of a handheld FIFA, so if that's all you are after then you are sorted. However, the price point (£50/$60) combined with the cut content makes this difficult to recommend to anyone with a current generation console. If you own an Xbox One, PlayStation 4 or PC, do yourself a favor and buy the real version of FIFA 18. You may not be able to take it outside but overall you are getting a much better deal for your money.
