- NEW ATTACKING TACTICS: New Attacking Tactics give you more control over how you want your team to play. Set up your team with different styles in each half of the pitch: keep the ball in your half and explode into attack with fast build up in the opponent’s, play direct from box to box, or line up in your own unique style

Starting with the good,
FIFA 22 honestly is better than the last FIFA I played (Which I believe was 19) the players have a degree of weight to them however it’s still not as realistic as PES with them tending to skate around as though they are floating with pretty unrealistic shifts of joins and parts of anatomy. With sliders however you can make the game far better than it’s default state which is kind of ridiculous such a thing is put on the player.
Career mode feels very similar to 19 however they have improved big parts of the experience with interviews, the ability to edit your own manager, improved youth development and even a chance to make your own club and dive into any league. I’ve also been a fan of how FIFA regens retired players as opposed to rebirthing them on PES, this also returns.
Volta is fun, in honesty it should be it’s own game (which I’d buy instead), sadly it’s very bare in 22 with no Story Mode and fully focused on online play but the fun gameplay is still there and is far more suited towards FIFA’s arcade gameplay. They should bring back FIFA Street or make Volta it’s own thing with a greater emphasis on building a team.
Now the bad…
FIFA is not a simulation of football, it never has been and based off the game here and on the new gen EA aren’t changing that direction. For this reason they need to stop trying to implement sim style mechanics in a game that is not great in terms of gameplay. Even on PS4 they’ve clearly improved on things but player movement, response, AI… it’s all pretty mediocre verses PES, which itself has its flaws in aspects of these but still at least delivers a simulation experience.
Sadly EA is catering to its “Pro Gamers” by bringing out an overly fast, quirky game which doesn’t really look like a real game of football. This can be mitigated to a degree by adjusting sliders for gameplay but the glaring shortcomings of FIFA remain with Wings feeling overpowered and ridiculously inconsistent keepers who’ll pull off awe inspiring saves one minute and then try stopping an easy shot with their foot and it still ending up in the goal.
FUT from what I’ve played and experienced so far looks much the same with it clearly being a grind to achieve anything and no doubt easier with EA’s gambling mechanics. This verse My Club on PES 2021 where I ended up spending ZERO money and gaining a team with Legends and a surplus of Black Grade players, it’s predictable EA.
Pro Clubs… drop in is very stripped back with only the option to join a drop in match and no choice over positions beforehand. The interface is pretty awful too with the ability to find teams and games pretty difficult.
Career Mode, specifically the New Team experience offers options but still feels lazy (literally pro clubs options for a single player/co-op offline mode). No Sponsors also seems a lazy exclusion which would have been easy to implement either using in-game partners or fictional ones.
FIFA 2022 has lost MORE Italian sides this year with no Lazio, Roma or Atalanta on top of Juventus, it’s still ridiculous that FIFA doesn’t let you edit teams or players in this day and age but then again it’s EA encouraging you to buy their new game next year. Lack of license can be remedied in PES with option files whereas it can’t in FIFA. I also don’t see the point of the Brazilian league where all the players are fictional, again this can’t be fixed by us or option files.
So in closing, FIFA is decent, it’s okay as games go and sadly is the only new option for a football game, personally I’d just get a 2021-22 Option File and pick up PES 2021 Season Update which is very cheap now.
Still a fun game to play with friends, make an ultimate team or create a managerial career. Of course the updated squads too. So your choice really, if you still wanna play a similar game with a bumped up price.
