My experience fifa 18 demo at Gamescom
So I had the opportunity to play the game for around 45 minutes at the Gamescom
Well first off I got to say that the switch version isn't as bad as I expected it to be, it could be seriously fun to have it on the go
Secondly, the demo was on a PS4 so idk how much the gameplay will differ to Xbox or PC
What was really noticable was the slow gameplay, players feel really heavy. But the dude at the booth told me that the full version wouldn't be that slow. It's just like every year that the demo seems slower probably because that way people feel any difference to the previous FIFA and have a reason to buy the new FIFA because of "omg gameplay feels so different omg!!"
Shooting did feel pretty different aswell tbh, my finesse shots didn't go aswell as I thought they should or maybe I was just having a bad day but I really think the ball physics while shooting was kinda off
Now the defense, well I didn't feel like it was more difficult than in 17 tbh, although I did defend pretty manually in 17 already so this could be a reason why I didn't have that much trouble defending when the opponent player has the ball on his feet BUT here is the point, crossing is almost impossible to defend accurately without training it a little bit, the defenders are just randomly positioned in your area while the crosses are all pinpoint to the opponents striker
I did concede all my goals by crossing and headers I think this will be the year of crossing again afterall if the gameplay is gonna stay close as to what we have right now
The one man kickoff is pretty neat, it's more difficult doing the custom L1 and X kick off and attack with both players right away so that is a good thing
Lastly the graphics do look amazing when there are close ups from the more famous players , the crowd is amazing, celebrations like the Ronaldo one feels awesome.
All in all I can say the game does feel different to 17 in certain areas but still has some flaws in my eyes but from what I heard the demo and the full version can differ a looot
I think that was everything I will edit my post if I remember anything more, u guys can ask aswell if u have specific questions
