Well right here we’re once more. I may copy and paste my overview like last year, however in contrast to a number of the people at EA I don’t take a lot satisfaction in reusing materials.
For the THIRD 12 months in a row, EA Sports has launched a just about unchanged version of FIFA onto the Nintendo (*22*).
As said on the sport’s official web site, “FIFA 22 Legacy Edition will function the identical gameplay innovation from FIFA 21 with none new improvement or important enhancements.”
As a reminder, right here’s what was written there for final 12 months’s sport: “FIFA 21 Legacy Edition will function the identical gameplay innovation from FIFA 20 with none new improvement or important enhancements.”
Oh, and the 12 months earlier than: “FIFA 20 Legacy Edition will function the identical gameplay innovation from FIFA 19 with none new improvement or important enhancements.”
And let me remind you that FIFA 19 on (*22*) wasn’t precisely nice in the first place…
So that’s three years in a row the place all that has been added every time are squad updates, new kits, broadcast packages and menu screens. No real try has been made to ship an improved product, in any tangible approach in anyway, and FIFA on (*22*) actually is simply plain insulting at this level (if it wasn’t already, which it positively was).
There is some excellent news, in the event you can name it that. You’ll solely be getting ripped off for £34.99/$39.99 this 12 months in comparison with the £44.99/$49.99 beforehand. Honestly, if you would like a lower than mediocre soccer sport on your (*22*) and haven’t purchased FIFA prior to now 4 years then possibly you’ll discover one thing to take pleasure in right here. I, although, occur to seek out the entire affair to be unhappy, joyless, and a shining instance of capitalism at its worst. What may absolutely at this level be a low-cost downloadable replace is as a substitute introduced as an costly, cynical cash seize.
EA, please cease this.
