FIFA 23 review roundup: what critics are saying about the new FIFA game


The much-awaited FIFA 23 was launched last week with improved gameplay mechanics and upgraded graphics. The last game under the FIFA banner after FIFA 23 FIFA has ended its exclusive deal with EA Sports. EA will continue to run the franchise under the EA Sports FC brand instead of the current FIFA banner. Even after being the last game under FIFA, FIFA 23 brings many new elements to the series including women’s football, Hypermotion 2 and more. Here’s what critics are saying about FIFA 23:

FIFA 23 Review Roundup

  • Polygon – “Gameplay changes, these are the most meaningful improvements among FIFA 23’s additions because they offer all game modes, not just give me more things to do or moves to memorize on my gamepad. By opening up new ways to utilize my team’s strengths, they tell me I’m better at soccer — the video game soccer — than they give me credit for. Of all the things I noticed in FIFA 23, it probably came last. But this is very important. “
  • IGN – “FIFA 23 is a bombastic swan song for the series (at least under its current name) with a welcome focus on theatrical flair. Viral-friendly gameplay revisions like FUT Moments, Action Replays and Power Shots make the simulation a more considerate, memorable game of football with deliberate defending and plenty of drama and goals. But EA’s spartan approach to non-monetized modes ensures FIFA 23 is a familiar beast from previous years, and Ultimate Team’s risky focus on microtransactions continues to wring a lot of fun out of it.
  • GameSpot – “FIFA 23 is a fitting end to an era that successfully captures the essence of the beautiful game alongside the depressing methods of the profitable vultures. It’s as much about greed as it is about scoring a screamer. The on-pitch action is an improved game, with slicker passing, more effective defending and myriad animations, although the shadow of gambling hangs over everything. This has been the case since Ultimate Team was introduced 14 years ago, so none of this should come as a surprise.

FIFA 23 gameplay

FIFA 23 on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X|S features the latest HyperMotion 2 technology, which can deliver realistic responses and more animations from players. This makes the game more immersive and responsive. The game comes with an improved dribbling system, new acceleration mechanics, improved transition to shooting and more. Traditional FIFA modes such as Ultimate Team, Matchday Experience, Career Mode, Seasons, Pro Clubs, Friendlies and Volta Football have also been upgraded.

The game will also receive FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 and FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia and New Zealand 2023 as part of free post-launch updates.
