I've been playing this since launch and even though some of the dynamics have been adjusted, the game is pretty shit.

I was hoping for a major upgrade to the dynamics but it's just FIFA 19 with some nicer graphics and a slower style of game play.
I want weather to play a part in the game, if it's freezing cold, I want it to affect the fitness of the players and how they can play the ball with the ground being frozen.

There is so much that should be added to the game to make it worth the price. It's a bad value game.

Was hoping to pick this up on Xbox this weekend. Seems like I will just stick with 19 then.

Would like to know what you think of the game.

Definitely not copping. Lets hope something better comes out next year, or that there is a major update released that overhauls a lot.
See if you can get it today for cheap and hope that it improves with time but I don’t really see the point in buying FIFA 20 if you are happy on 19

To be honest, the game is a mixed bag...i would have to agree that FIFA 19 is still far better than this - the only positive i have found here is that the keepers are somewhat better at times. Defending is the worst as they have made it more focus on being a manual defending and its gotten much harder and crazy in my opinion. also found that once i had my team tactics bedded down and working fine, new patches coming out used to end up making those tactics worse than what they were before.

Some players just annoy you by doing one skill move over and over and over again which is proven to get you pass players because if you try to tackle, it ends up being a foul.

They just launched a patch today to reduce the number of fouls in the game.

I've given away a penalty many a time for silly things like the players getting up after a clean tackle and my player (not under my control anymore) gets up and nudges the other player with his head. I watch the replay and it's just stupid.

The other stupid thing they had to fix was the wrong manager reacting to the situation of a close goal. That's basic coding 101 right there.

Will have to check it out and see how much of a difference it actually makes. Currently, this has been the most frustrating FIFA i have played on PC. Initially, when playing with keyboard, you could place your penalty marker where you wanted to...it was keyboard friendly, after a few patches its a nightmare to take penalties on a keyboard because that marker from being static is now jumping all over the place...its gone now more controller friendly.

Once a player is pass your defenders, there is no chance of catching him at all...just a good thing that the keepers are much better in FIFA 20 that allows them to make some great one on one saves. Sometimes, the pass interceptions are rather crazy as well...the moment you lose the ball like that, its very hard to get back into position/shape and defend when you are out numbered. Just hoping this new patch doesnt end up messing my tactics up again, everytime i get something setup that i get comfortable using and is working well for me, a new patch comes along and messes everything up in the performance of that formation...means have to change again, and find another one that works.

This just depresses me.

Well then again, I guess I have transitioned from playing FIFA everyday to only when my mates come over and we have a session. Not really into the whole online and FUT anymore. So I will just stick with 19 and leave it at that.

I really thought EA would take this opportunity to use the Frostbite engine to refine the playing dynamics to be amazing.

Instead, they just changed the interface a little, added the dab celebration and other pointless features.
