    I genuinely hope it's as good as it can be as i can't tell you how many hours i've piled into online seasons (the only mode i really play!). If it's good and it sells well it'll only improve its chances of getting better and better over each iteration too.

    From the videos the only thing i really noticed that could be an issue was the ball seemed a little floaty. This might just be me being picky though!

    Yeah that's a big selling point for me. The last Fifa I played was when they introduced all the PL grounds and it was night and day better than the same old shite template ones. I'm sold either way at this point but it'd be disappointing if it hasn't got them in.

    Any of you guys have an issue with downloading Ronaldo edition this morning?

    It kept saying I had standard then downloading the demo again??

    From the sound of the review, another year, another extreme pendulum swing to pander to the fans who complained loudest the year before.

    Increased tempo, ping-pong passing and return of OP dribbling through the defence? No thanks.

    Think I'll stick with 17, as long as online matchmaking holds..

    This from ShopTo.

    "We have just been advised by EA that they have placed a shipping restriction on Fifa 18 for all retailers, these will now be shipped on Thursday the 28th for the 29th."

    I am mildly concerned that there is something seriously wrong with the Switch version.

    I don't think they're sending out Switch review copies, and they haven't been showing off as much footage as I'd like. It'll probably be fine, but they sure are ringing almost every alarm bell there is.

    I read that review sites will get the game for review on launch day. They're likely trying to tempt people into buying a Switch copy and a copy on another platform.

    It's very weird. All the write ups have been exemplary. You'd think EA would be trying to make a foothold in the Switch market.

    They have always complained they don't do good numbers on Nintendo consoles but no demo or preview code means most multi-platform holders won't take the risk on launch day and they'll all go for the other formats.

    Bad times as I'd like EA to invest in it.

    According to rumblings on twitter, Iíve heard that both Amazon and Argos have sold through two entire shipments, and thatís why itís listed as unavailable.

    I do wonder if they didnít want too much focus on it - they want all the focus on the bigger glitzier versions. Perhaps theyíve underestimated just how much demand there would be for a console-quality
    handheld FIFA. I donít know - itís just mildly concerning that this adheres to every borked/broken game pre-release stereotype I can think of.

    Good news if people are getting onboard if it's selling out everywhere. Thanks to Doom, I'm just about over that review embargoes that aren't up until launch isn't always a bad sign. But it's a strange stance given the positivity around it.

    That I'm thinking of going Switch over PC for FIFA this year, despite absolutely LOVING The Journey, speaks volumes for where the Switch now sits in my gaming hierarchy.

    Doom arriving might get me to finally pull the trigger instead of playing my mates most weekends. I must be in my minority who didn't enjoy the journey. I applaud EA for something different but I'm happy with just a regular career mode.

    The Journey hung some meat on the bones of a career. It was flawed in many ways, but it filled in the blanks where - after years of playing footie games - my imagination had just given up.

    I am far from a hardcore footie game player though.

    I'm the sort of weirdo that plays Battlefield for the SP. Watched a few clips of the Journey and it looks like a really welcome addition to Fifa. I'd play it. Might even try and find it cheap on the PC.

    Ha! I'm the same with Battlefield, actually. Journey is very much that sort of feeling vs. the main event, only in foot to ball. :)

    I've chucked some first impressions of Switch FIFA in the Nintendo Switch thread.
    Spoiler: It's pretty damn good!

    Well Fifa 18 on Switch is an absolute triumph.

    Looks great, runs great and controls great - even looks pretty damn good in docked mode.

    Want to pick up switch version from Argos as I got some vouchers but for some reason they don't stock it which I find weird. They have all the other versions in.

    I've seen them do that before. Sometimes they'll only add a new game to their site the day it comes out, sometimes even as late as opening time for the shops (around 8-9am).
