Active Touch Headline
The new Active Touch System fundamentally changes the way you receive and strike the ball, providing closer control, improved fluidity, creativity and increased player personality. Utilize a suite of new first touch tools, like the disguised touch, flick-up volleys, or even skill specific animations, like the Neymar Trap, to beat your opponent and create scoring opportunities.
A re-imagined system gives players the tools to set multiple tactical approaches, offering in-depth customisation pre-match, as well as more options for dynamic in-match adjustments from the D-Pad. Each tactical approach combines formations, mentalities, and attacking and defensive play styles, enabling you to easily customize your play in any situation.
Double tapping shoot on any strike attempt triggers a timed finish, putting users in control of how accurately they connect with the ball. The precision of the second button tap determines the result of the contact, with perfectly timed balls increasing in accuracy and power, and poorly timed contacts more likely to miss the mark. Whether it's a hit from outside the box, a precision header, or a deft touch, timed finishing adds a new layer of control to chances in-front of goal.

I for one have played career mode for many years and it seems to get worse. Hardly any improvements made, tons of bugs, and overall very repetitive. Even the edit mode hasn’t seen a overhaul in god knows how long!
Pro Clubs hasn’t even been touched and it’s a shame because that has so much potential.
The gameplay has been slowed down a lot which has pros & cons but it’s still not where it needs to be.
Hopefully Fifa 20 they will focus a lot more in making career mode very in-depth and take some ideas from Football Manager.
FIFA 19's biggest strength lies in its presentation which is now bolstered by the return of the UEFA licence which gives the European competitions full authenticity and indeed was the main selling point for the game this year. Also new as far as licencing goes is the Chinese league and most strikingly all of the Spanish stadiums with the exception of the Camp Nou being in the game due to Barcelona's deal with Konami. Besides Barcelona's stadium being out of the game there are many other omissions and ugliness which is particularly noticeable in lower league teams and their kits. Overall though it is hard to knock FIFA when it comes to licences which are as good as they have been in some time.
As far as the gameplay goes I actually think it has taken a step back from FIFA 18 where the game of football is more physical this year. What's more noticeable is how much more difficult it is to score goals where every team will get men behind the ball and deflections will come from everywhere! The goalkeepers can even save shots with their faces! It is absolutely ridiculous and speaking of goalkeepers the hit detection and where they save the ball is sometimes difficult to establish with the ball going in wild directions. A new shooting mechanic has also been added which requires you to get a button press right in a sweet spot for the perfect strike. I haven't really used the gameplay feature but the shooting does feel more off than it did in 18 where lame underpowered shots are now far more common.
The Journey also returns for its conclusion and I can't really say it is all that satisfying with it being a grind from start to finish. You will be rewarded with certain elements for ultimate team but I was more concerned for the narrative as far as getting me invested in the mode and I can't say a great story is here to be found. It is average but your choices really have little significance if any at all.
EA Sports needs to redouble their efforts elsewhere and into the Career Mode which is increasingly stale. It is largely unchanged from 18 although there are now new leagues to tackle if so desired but transfers are still unrealistic and it really is a mode that could be built upon. It is never going to be Football Manager but some more realistic manager AI wouldn't go amiss either but EA's main focus is the Ultimate Team because of the revenue it generates and you really can't blame them although I have next to no interest in the mode which remains pay to win.
Graphics 9 - Generally very good although not quite Madden level good. The silverware still looks really ugly and player faces are hit and miss.
Sound 8 - The Champions League anthem is all there now following a patch which is nice with new commentary from Derek Rae and Lee Dixon which isn't as good as from Tyler or Smith as it is often more repetitive, but still it's something new.
Gameplay 7 - A step backwards from 18 because now every team defends like Lithuania and there really is not much variety in AI defensive set ups. Frustrating.
Lifespan 8 - There is lots of stuff to keep you occupied and particularly in Career and Ultimate Team and The Journey is about 8-10 hours should you play through it.
FIFA 19 is a somewhat disappointing experience that really adds nothing new apart from a Champions League reskin. If you can live without that I would say that 18 is the better game but it is also undeniable that there is a wealth of content here to get stuck into for the football fanatic. Overall EA Sports serve up another serviceable title which is the norm because it's nothing new, radical or indeed absolutely necessary unless you really care for the Champions League/Europa League licence.
