FIFA 19 - Nintendo Switch Edition
FIFA 19 is a threadbare experience on the Switch. The inclusion of the Champions League and a significant graphical upgrade goes some way to approaching the levels on presentation found on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC version, but on the pitch it's a mile away from being a premium football simulation and fails to build on last year's game. I can see myself having some fun playing the new House Rules modes locally with friends, but in most single-player modes there is no doubt that it is a repetitive and unfulfilling experience.
Nintendo Switch gets an updated version of FIFA 19, but it's lacking much of what makes EA's footballing giant special.
FIFA 19 on Nintendo Switch offers an experience almost on par with the other versions of the game. This version's visuals are kind of weak on TV mode, however, it also proves to be enough when playing on handheld mode. Furthermore, it features all of the available options for the Champions League, the Ultimate Team as well as other game mode.

FIFA 19 on Switch is a decent football game, but still a far cry from the PS4, Xbox One e PC editions.

I do hope there's more to come from FIFA in the years ahead, but for now it's more of a fun-to-have rather than a must-have for Nintendo Switch owners.
Adding the Champions League and Europa League brings it closer to a more realistic simulation, while the no-rules modes are fun in the way they completely subvert football in an enjoyable way. Where this experience falls short of expectations is on its visual performance, the inflexible AI and some unexplainable absences when it concerns game modes.

Is this the best football game on Switch? Yes. Is it enough? No.

The old adage of "less is more" cannot be applied in this scenario as Nintendo Switch users are emphatically getting less bang for their buck.
With fun new multiplayer Kick Off modes available at any time, anywhere and with two controllers readily available this FIFA 19 edition may not be the premium version but it is definitely good enough if you do not have access to other platforms or do most of your gaming on the go.
