E3 2017: ‘FIFA 18’ On Switch Is Mediocre To The Core

FIFA 18 is a solid 3rd party title on Nintendo Switch. Although it’s missing some features that are on the Xbox One and Playstation 4 version, the game’s portability makes up for it.

I’m not shy about the fact that I’m not a FIFA fan. I’ve never played a game in the series, and probably never will. With that said, however, I understand the appeal of these games. The quick demo I tried at E3 was fun, but not something that I could see myself playing on a regular basis.

Fundamentally, soccer bores me. The game that often ends in 0-0 is just something that I don’t enjoy watching – FIFA is a bit different. By actually controlling the players, like in any other sports game, you’re carving your own path and possibly allowing for a high scoring game.

Visually, FIFA 18 on Switch is…fine? It’s not up to snuff when compared to its modern console counterparts, but it’s also not terrible.

This is a brief review because I truly don’t have much to say about the title. If you’re a Switch owner that enjoys the FIFA series, absolutely pick up this new version. If you’re like me and couldn’t care less about the franchise, don’t bother.
