The new commentary team is a slight improvement, although not the big step up that was needed. The match day sounds are authentic, and the track list is, as ever, full of bangers to add to your Spotify playlists (I've had skeletons on repeat).
This is definitely more of a next-gen upgrade for FIFA than last year - new animations and slicker presentation make sure of that - but it's still not a mind-blowing upgrade.
A more deliberate game of football, with less reliance on pace and skill moves, is a welcome change, and makes each goal feel more impactful. But slightly overpowered goalkeepers and defenders can prove frustrating when playing against the AI in Career Mode.
There are some upgrades and improvements across all modes once again this year, but whether its worth it for you depends on where you spend the majority of your time in FIFA.
Same old, same old, a big list that wants you to play a lot of every mode, even if you don't want to.
