You get a gimped home console version and I don't care about portability.

They were able to play The Journey and able to play against friends online in FIFA 17. You can't on Switch and other less subtle differences. They also didn't try to sell a year old product at full price. But then a lot of developers are doing that on Switch. In some cases, the games are years old and still full priced. Someone's got to try swindle and hoodwink Switch owners.

You just completely ignored what I said. Read it again and actually see why I said they look a bit silly

All I know is FIFA on Switch is superb, I love it. I say that as someone who bought every single FIFA from the original through to 2009 and who plays each new entry on my mates Xbox when I'm back in the UK. Any football fan who only games on Nintendo and doesn't own this game, you're missing out big time. I've never been a handheld gamer myself yet Switch has converted me. Splatoon 2,ARMS and BOTW are my TV games, the rest are my handheld or table top games. Not because I need to but because I want to as games just feel better on Switch. Fact!

Comparisons need to be made so those of us fortunate enough to own more than one console can make an informed decision. I don't however think these differences should be reflected in score and neither should the price.

IDK - the NL review of FIFA 18 bent me out of shape - it felt almost more of a review of the PS4/XB1 version than it did the Switch version.

I can understand an 8/10, no problem. A FIFA game will never get a 10/10, so it would have to be pretty amazeballs to get a 9/10, and therefore 8/10 is fine here. But the text of the review seemed to be going out of its way to steer readers towards other consoles. Completely unnecessarily.

The IGN review is just a joke.

All that's actually needed is a bullet point list of features - by all means presented as a comparison table of PS4/XB1/Switch, and let us decide which version works best for us.

Use the 'ignore' button, it works.

I understand the story mode is a neat mode. But being perfectly honest, you buy a basketball game to play basketball. You buy a soccer game to play soccer. Not saying it has no value- it does, but it's omission is hardly detrimental to the game. I would have loved to see it, but it's nothing to get too bent out of shape over.

The absence of the story mode isn't detrimental to the gameplay as such but it is to the overall package, or at least it is for me. I'd happily lose FUT and have The Journey in its place. Others will scoff at that suggestion. For my tastes/interests, it is a significant portion of content that is not there. Whether that matters is going to an individual preference but if EA released the Switch version at say £10/$10 less than the PS4/Xbox One version then I don't think there is even a conversation to be had. But they didn't.

Re Vita lack of criticism. The internet is a lot more critical these days and we analyse to the nth degree - videos comparing resolutions and frames per seconds for instance.

So why are you here then? Other than to troll. If there’s something I don’t care about I don’t waste anytime on it....

I hit that ignore button a long time ago, and I recommend you do the same. It's a lot more peaceful- some people are just unhappy, and misery loves company, as they say. Only purpose of being here is to try to piss in your Cornflakes.

I have had FIFA 18 since launch and I have enjoyed it. Sure I would have liked it to be fully featured like the other consoles, but it plays very, very smoothly and I have had a blast with it.

@flapjack-ashley I am not a FIFA fan at all but this is what I see across multiple forums. Switch owners are enjoying playing FIFA. No matter how much someone is trying to change that opinion it's good to see people like the game.

Good to see this thread is fairly active, it seems everyone who owns the game is happy with it. It is a real shame we can't play each other. We could have organised a mini tournament.

@Ervex_109 Please just hit the ignore button. And the report button. By quoting it and confronting it, you're just perpetuating it and even people ignoring that user will see it. Report and ignore is easy and effective.

Use the 'ignore' button, it works.

@gcunit I seen his remark, had a whole response written out to them but I didn't want to engage them or start an argument. There was nothing wrong with what I wrote. This game has more mixed reviews than positive on Metacritic. That's a fact, it has less features than on other platforms, that's a fact. You can't in 2017 do something as basic as play online against friends, that's a fact. EA, don't deserve to be rewarded for shoddiness and charging the same price for a lesser experience. I don't slight games like for example Stardew Valley or Golf Story. Why is that? It's because they're great games that put the effort in and remember, they're indie developers. They've a fraction of the resources EA have at their disposal and put them to shame.

People have their views and they're entitled to them. I have mine and don't attack anyone for being on the pro side of this game. I posted reviews, they're as valid as anybody elses. People can't let it go unchallenged though. They have to say something. I can't even tell you when I last reported a comment, maybe you can. It must be a few of months at least. We're not made of glass or maybe I've grown a thicker skin. I think I may just post the reviews and ignore the responses in future.

It's nice knowing that, no matter what, we'll always have this game to fall back on for Switch. Even if they never bring a new entry (which I think they will, but let's just assume they don't) this is a solid game and honestly it could last me- as far as soccer is concerned- all generation. I don't really follow the sport so the new entry each year isn't necessarily a big deal to me. I mean if they do bring a new one I'll probably grab it but I'd be content just playing this. Same for NBA 2k18.

I like the drills. They really help you get better at the game. I wish Nintendo had video capture- I used Ronaldo to head a goal in from a corner kick, and it was so glorious man... oh it was so slick! One day we'll have video capture. That'll be so nice.

Can you save your replays? You used to be able to in pro evo.

Re: another one next year, I don’t know if I would buy it every year but was really hoping the game would be a success as it would encourage more 3rd party support and we’d maybe get pro evo as well if the appetite was shown to be there

I would consider FIFA 19 if the new content is substantial enough and/or if Turkish teams are included. To be able to take Turkish teams with me on the go was the main reason why I bought FIFA 12 on 3DS back in the day, only to find out that they were excluded entirely (even the national team was excluded), and football isn't big enough in Australia for me to care about our national teams (and I struggle to root for a team with a name as cringe-inducing as the "Socceroos").

This edition has the Turkish superlig

Went and bought FIFA 18, you can tell that it's based on FIFA 17 from movement and animations. Goalkeepers aren't as reactive, although I'm not sure if that's a bug, but I've been able to score really easy long range goals that keepers should be saving, and that I have seen them save on the PS4 version.

Few kinks to iron out, but I think it's a decent version of the game. I'm hoping FUT picks up as the lack of players and prices in the transfer market is a joke.
