What experts liked
When it comes to finishing, a new ‘after-touch’ mechanic introduces some added risk/reward. Tapping the shoot button again, after charging the shot and just as your player kicks the ball, adds a small boost to the shot to increase its chances of finding the net.
- PC Gamer
Active Touch is new for FIFA 19 and is the most noticeable addition for close control, allowing you to trap the ball when you receive it in different ways and dummy opponents. The right analogue stick is key for these moves and will unlock your next level of show off skill.

There are some nice tweaks here, and it does feel smoother and more fluid to play.

Player jostling and collisions are now much more visceral, and as the mud flies and the pitch becomes dogged with referee spray lines and divots it becomes very apparent that EA Sports has done a fantastic job crafting an authentic atmosphere. FIFA 19 looks fantastic, but it also feels more accurate to the real thing than any of its predecessors.
- Game Rant
I feel like I'm playing 10 percent better in FIFA 19, which I suspect has a lot to do with the reduced input delay and smoother, faster gameplay.

Presentation overall is excellent, with the Champions League license rounding off the package well.
- Tech Spot
It delivers some of the most emotionally impactful and well-acted moments we’ve seen from FIFA in years.
- Digital Trends
What experts didn't like
The on-pitch improvements aren’t always easy to spot, but they’re there.
- PC Gamer
Lack of career mode updates.

Career mode fans probably won't be too happy with this version. Outside of the new UEFA Champions League and Europa League branding, it's basically the same as last year.
- US Gamer

Career Mode and Pro Clubs are in desperate need of an overhaul.
- Tech Spot
New gameplay changes aren’t successful.
