Fans Are Complaining That FIFA 19 Is 'The Worst FIFA Of All Time'
The FIFA Community have rated FIFA 19 as a 'one star out of five' game on the official Microsoft Store, and that's just the beginning of this scathing attack on the release.
If you take a look at the site, 84% of fans gave the latest installment a one star rating in their review, despite a number of 'improvements' to the popular game.
In August last year, before the official release date, a number of exciting features were announced.
- Long range: a game where goals scored from outside the penalty area count as two goals.
- Survival: gamers lose one of their players after scoring a goal.
- Headers & volleys: this mode was only briefly touched on, but it seems FIFA 19 will have its own take on the classic real-life game.
- First to: allows the player to set a goal-target and the first player to reach that number wins the game.
But despite the amount of new features and game modes, including the eagerly anticipated timed finishing, many fans have criticised gameplay, among other things.
"Broken. FIFA 19 is f*cking broken. No patch could ever fix it." said one Twitter user. "They released an utterly awful incomplete game, and have been trying to fix it 20 times already. It's sh*t.
"Worst FIFA ever made. Passes are broken, rebounds are broken, gameplay is broken. Button delay is just HIDEOUS."
Many gamers have taken to social media to express their anger at the release. I mean, a quick scroll through FIFA 19's review page on the store demonstrates exactly those who bought the game are feeling.
But here's just a few of the comments made on Twitter:
Fifa 19 is by far the worst game EA have ever released- □ (@MajesticDiv) January 6, 2019
- There's pretty much nothing else to play than FUT, might aswell go back to Fifa 17 to play career mode
- FUT has turned into the most competitive game mode ever: There's literally no possibility to just have fun with new
FIFA 19 has to be the worst FIFA ever released. We're not playing a football simulator, we're playing a videogame where in order to win games, we have to abuse and exploit the mechanics.- BiQas (@OfficialBiQas) January 13, 2019
I'm not having fun at all with this game.
What a miserable game fifa 19 is, worst I have ever played, zero enjoyment, worst passing and awfull shooting and constant blocked shots! Just have to uninstall it shockingly bad #Fifa19- REESTAR (@reesters1) February 18, 2019
Fifa 19 is the worst Fifa they've made in forever.- Reed (@iReedr) February 19, 2019
The fact that this was one of my player pick options for finishing Elite makes ZERO sense to me. This (plus so many other reasons) is why I'm taking a step back from this game. FIFA 19 is the worst FIFA of all time and that's saying something. pic.twitter.com/El1F6zMy02- i9Ibbs (@i9ibbs) February 14, 2019
Can't be the only person that thinks FIFA 19 is the worst FIFA that's ever come out- Melttyyy (@JDCharlton99) February 10, 2019

Do you think FIFA 19 is an improvement on last year's game?
