One of the biggest franchises in sports gaming has released with their latest edition and with football fever at an all-time high; this is the perfect time to indulge in some futbol gaming. FIFA 19 takes a unique stand as it will be the first time that players can see recent real-life transfers be a part of their online teams.
The most anticipated change has been with regards to Ronaldo Cristiano who is among the most expensive player transfers ever. His move to Juventus will be reflected in the new game and has already placed the Portuguese superstar at the top of the Ones to Watch list, issued by EA. FIFA 19 is more than just a game; it is an experience that places the player in the centre of all the action and manages to capture every fantastic feature and emotion of the beautiful game called football.
Ones to Watch
The Ones to Watch list released by EA is a set of players followed throughout the latest 2018/19 season with updates to their cards done on a weekly basis. These updates depend on their play in real life and having any one of the rising stars in the Ultimate Team mode of the game can be extremely beneficial for the video game player. Presently, Ronaldo leads the pack with a whopping 94 points, and as long as the personal allegations don’t affect his game, this number is sure to rise as and when he performs well for his new club. Some of the other exciting additions to the list are Gonzalo Higuain, presently on loan with Milan, and Riyad Mahrez who started playing for the Premier League champions Manchester City. The OTW XI also includes names like Quincy Promes, Naby Keita, Jorginho, and Sokratis who joined Arsenal under Unai Emery this summer.
The reviews so far of the game have been phenomenal. There have been quite a few new additions to the gameplay, and regarding graphics, which are a lot crisper, there is indeed an enhancement of the overall feel that makes any video game stand apart. Besides the usual improvements in kicks and all, a fun and fantasy element has been added to the game in the form of a no-rules mode and the Ultimate Team challenge that lets you select players from any team.
The FIFA franchise has evolved over the years in a manner that mixes the dynamics of the world’s most favourite game with a sense of excitement and thrill. While being in control of a team and playing football matches is indeed a significant part of its success, it is the small ingenious, often subtle, ideas that make FIFA 19 more interactive and such a favourite year after year. The flexibility of the game along with the combination of international players that EA has managed to rope in is exceptional and keeps the entertainment levels at an all-time high.
