Defenders can poke their leg over the back of a player who is jockeying for position, and keepers respond convincingly in situations where they lack vision by diving to the floor in the event that a defender blocks stumbling backwards to swat an unflinching ball.
The gruelling match commentary returns with a vengeance and after hearing "he dispatched it with aplomb" one too many times, I was giddily to be reminded that this year you could turn it all off and attempt to undo the damage done to your mind caused by all the negative comments about the way you play.
This allows you to pump out the normally stunning soundtrack which offers Bad Bunny bangers and underground audio earworms by DOSS and Cryalot. There's something about taking with a Bruno Guimar?es assistance while listening to incessant German Drill that makes grinding out a lousy Career Mode season much more enjoyable.
Beyond the moment-to-moment gameplay, FIFA 23 predictably focuses its changes on the mode that earns EA earn the highest amount of money. The microtransaction-ridden Ultimate Team is flush with additions, but Career Mode and Volta Football barely get a look-in, which says much about EA's long-standing attitude to these modes, especially in this supposedly ornamental final FIFA-branded entry.
It's the same issue we've had in Madden NFL 23 as well as NBA 2K23: despite how much we hate how they make the playing field tilt towards the player who pays the most, so many people are playing and spending money on it that EA continues to increase the amount on it, instead of the fair and balanced options we've come to love more.
FIFA 22 is the next technological advancement in the field of virtual football and while it doesn't reinvent the ball, the attacking and defending gameplay is now fluid from moment to moment. Visual inconsistencies and goalkeeping mistakes aside this year's FIFA remains one of the most enjoyable and nuanced multiplayer sports games available on the market, and new additions to Career Mode and Volta Football have made FIFA's major modes more enjoyable to play.
Microtransactions still loom large yet small tweaks and the power of latest-gen consoles have made FIFA 22 feel like a worthy upgrade, without needing anything radical or thrilling from EA's part. -- Jordan Oloman, September 27, 2021
Player Career comes with a brand-new personality system that lets you, in most dramatic air quotes, roleplay as your chosen footballer. For me, this amounted to earning 25 'Maverick points that I used to buy a "High-end Hybrid Mattress' for a Serbian striker playing in the K-League which is why you can picture how long I was with that.
You're now able to select the real Manager (or Ted Lasso, however real you believe him to have been) to play as in Manager Career and Manager Career, however, other than playing as a muted Jason Sudekis or dress as Eddie Howe in a lovely sweater, there's nothing much else to do other than look at the awkward cutscenes.
