FIFA 18 receives low scores from gamers

Here are some of the most common reasons why the game got mixed user reviews:

Bugs, error and other technical issues

Many gamers complained that FIFA 18 is unexpectedly buggy. However, almost every newly launched game is affected by a series of technical issues mainly due to the plethora of system configurations that players installed them on.

EA recently rolled out the first major FIFA 18 aimed at fixing many of the bugs reported by players. We’re sure that the game will become more stable in the coming weeks, as EA releases more patches and updates.

Players feel they have very little influence on the game outcome

Surely with so much complaint about Scripting EA would take note and take steps to move FIFA 18 in the right direction? But no, same scripted BS that we’ve seen in at least the last 5 iterations. No point playing a game which largely determines the outcome before a ball is kicked.

The defense system moves too slowly

Defence system became **** Any player who are fast can knock down defenders because defender move like they are paralyzed. How they make game like this??? They really don’t even think about what real football is??? I’m really fed up with FIFA series.. It’s really sad that there are no other playable football game any more.. too sad..
