Somehow, over the past five years, the Fifa games have expanded beyond a simulation of the sport of football and towards a simulation of its entire global culture. Fifa 22 is absolutely packed with modes and options allowing you to experience every facet of the beautiful game, whether that’s role-playing as a young professional scoring a tournament-winning goal for Barcelona, or knocking a ball about on an Italian backstreet with a bunch of pals. The Fifa series wants to be all things to all fans, and Fifa 22 gets closer than ever.
At its heart is EA Sports’ endlessly evolving match engine, which has historically favored flashy moves and spectacular goals over tactical brilliance. The studio has made stuttering moves away from this model in the past, but Fifa 22 definitely feels more sober and structured than its predecessor.
Improved ball physics, an array of new player animations, and changes to the pace of turns and passes make for a game that encourages smart, patient buildup play, while the options to control and communicate with AI team-mates require you to keep a close eye on what everyone else is doing, utilizing their little sleights and sprints in creative ways.
Outside of the matches themselves is the giant multiplex of football that Fifa has become. You can play the Career Mode, which offers a narrative journey from average squad player to Messi-like football god or try Pro Clubs, which lets you join an online team with 10 other players.
Then there’s Volta Football, a whole street football subsection that works like the old Fifa Street titles, rewarding flashy tricks and providing special moves to create a dynamic and histrionic style of urban footie.
It’s like having a kickabout with mates at the local five-a-side pitch – if your mates all played like Lisa Zimouche. Fifa 22 adds news skills to the mix, as well as signature moves such as improved striking and faster pace, which boost your abilities for short periods.
Most interesting though is the Volta Arcade mode, with potentially hilarious mini-game versions of dodgeball and foot tennis played in small online teams. It reminds me of the brilliant training exercises in Sega’s Virtua Tennis series, and it’s nice to have these fun little diversions to dip into.
Fifa Online 4 is absolutely unmistakably a Fifa game – it has the sophistication and polish we’ve come to expect, with all the player likenesses, authentic stadia, and recognizable commentators we see every year.
But right at the core of it is a match engine that feels more surefooted than ever, at a time when the game’s more tactically complex rival Pro Evolution Soccer has been relegated to a free-to-play existence with all the compromises that will inevitably entail.
If you can live with the loot-box trickery of Ultimate Team, this is a gigantic, rewarding simulation that offers a ton of variety and scope and many, many moments of exquisite goalmouth drama.
Immersive Graphics – From wrinkles in uniforms to seats in the stadiums, FIFA Online 4 uses next-generation graphics technology to push the limits. Even the weather effects are so real, you’ll feel like you’re in the game.
Designed For Players – EA and Nexon have spent the last 5 years collecting suggestions and feedback from players around the world. They’ve put this feedback to good use to deliver the game that you, the players, demanded!
Control And Realism – Player movements have been redesigned to be more realistic. Controls have been refined to be more precise and dynamic. Even the AI of players has been updated. Every kick, every save, and every step, you’re in complete control.
FIFA Online 4 is a massively multiplayer online sports simulation game using a next-generation engine for unprecedented control and realism. The widely anticipated sequel to 2012’s FIFA Online 3, Electronic Arts and Nexon have used those 5 years to compile data, collect feedback from players, and ensure FIFA Online 4 is the most realistic and dynamic FIFA game to date. Every kick, every goal, every card, every uniform will be delivered in a graphical fidelity that needs to be seen to be believed. Take control of your footballer with controls optimized for ease of play, precision, and accuracy.
