FIFA 18 Hype: Early Impressions from PlayerAuctions

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, September 15, 2017 / -- Soccer fans from around the globe are excited about FIFA 18! September 29 creeps closer, and most folks just can’t wait to get their hands on the game. We’re here to alleviate (or worsen) the soccer itch by talking about some impressions we’ve had playing an early review copy of FIFA 18. With updated graphics, a rebalanced AI, lots of different game modes to play, and player rating shifts, FIFA 18 is shaping up to be the brightest of the FIFA series. Hold onto your FIFA Coins, ladies and gents, as we give you a glimpse of what’s in store.

Detailed Graphics

While graphics don’t make a game, it certainly is a big deal in the FIFA series. After all, one can’t truly appreciate the realism that EA wants to achieve with the franchise if Ronaldo has a face plugged up like a chicken’s bum, right? FIFA 18 ensures that this won’t happen because of the graphical upgrade. Though they are still using the Frostbite engine, it’s quite apparent that things have been refined much more this time around, as if they’ve unlocked what the engine can do.

Everything is much smoother than in FIFA 17, but, most notably, the animations of the game are the ones that have drastically improved. An example is that almost all players have their distinct run animation, much like their real life counterparts. Not only that, but body type also plays a significant role in determining the run of a specific player.

Heck, even the animation upgrades extend to the in-game audience as well! There are so many dynamic reactions during a game, responding appropriately to your actions on the field. Nab a steal? Witness the crowd go nuts with your expertise! Score a sweet goal? Watch soccer hooligans rush the stage in protest! The realism here is so well that you’ll start to wonder why we’ve never had it this good before. Apart from the animation improvements, the small and most often taken for granted details are done much better this time around as well. From sweat beads on your player’s forehead to getting pumped after a goal, EA has outdone themselves for this iteration.

Enriched Gameplay

The biggest thing you’ll notice when you play FIFA 18 is how responsive the controls are. Although FIFA 17 is a good game, the controls could sometimes be a hassle to deal with, including wrong passes, not being able to dribble across the field correctly or aim a shot precisely. In FIFA 18, however, you can have more control. If you want to pass the ball, you just do. If you want to shoot, go for it! FIFA 18 is worth the purchase.

The biggest hype most people have for the game is the return of Alex Hunter and the second chapter to his story in The Journey 2. Hunter ponders whether he should stay in his current soccer club or moving onto greener pastures. EA went nuts in the path-splitting mechanic. For each decision Hunter makes, it affects future events and where you may even end up, affecting how the world in the game views you, especially soccer players and fans.

Even though you can’t make your our character in The Journey 2, you can customize Alex Hunter. Do you want him decked out in goofy fashion statements like Hector Bellerin? You sure can! How about having lots of tattoos? No problem! It’s a solid mode that certainly exceeded expectations for those that have got their feet wet. Certainly, any fan of the FIFA franchise could find themselves addicted to The Journey 2.

Coming Soon

FIFA 18 brings many enhancements! In fact, it’s hard to believe that it’s still running on the same engine as FIFA 17. With every FIFA iteration, EA normally has some new gimmick or feature, but, instead, they opted for quality refinement rather than quantitative uselessness. We look forward to FIFA 18 on September 29!
