FIFA 20 is now available – and it looks to have gone down a hit with the community.
To be honest, after last year’s game it wasn’t difficult to improve things.
Here, we’ve gathered a load of reviews from the top gaming websites – including our own, of course, to help you decide on whether or not it’s worth buying. To give you some context, FIFA 19 currently sits at 83 on Metacritic with a user score of 1.7. Ouch.
Remember, you can check out our verdict on FIFA 20 and PES 2020 here.
RealSport – unrated
“FIFA feels like just more of the same. EA has to now seriously rethink what they produce in the series, as gamers are no longer falling for a rehashed version each year – FIFA 19 sold 35% less than its predecessor FIFA 18 during the opening week.
“Career Mode, Pro Clubs, FIFA Ultimate Team, and the headline act Volta are a step in the right direction, but this year PES 2020 is the clear winner” — Alastair Pusinelli [Full review]
GameSpot — 8/10
“Flawed and iterative, but comforting, complete, and compelling, FIFA 20 is as frustrating and as essential as ever.
“The Journey and FIFA Street will continue to be missed, but Volta offers a genuinely different option for those who want to dip in and out across FIFA’s smorgasbord of game types, while Ultimate Team continues its route to world domination. It’s just a shame Career Mode continues to stagnate–even if EA has finally remembered it exists.” — Oscar Dayus [Full review]
Eurogamer — UnScored
“FIFA 20 is all these things but it’s also better than FIFA 19. I’ve already played loads of games against Eurogamer’s second-best FIFA player, Chris Tapsell, and I’ve had a great laugh.
“I’ve scored some screamers. I’ve lost to added time goals. We’ve leapt off the sofa at shocking refereeing decisions, missed open goals by Marcus Rashford and magic from Mason Mount.
“We’ve picked apart the game, worked out what’s changed, what’s better and what’s worse. We’ve had bloody good fun. And it’s all undermined by corporate greed and a stubborn refusal to do what’s right. A bit like real football, then.” — Wesley Yin-Poole [Full review]
