We went hands-on with FIFA 19 at the EA Play event (that orbits kind of close to E3 itself) and here’s what we thought of it.
It’s a FIFA game. Also, it now has the Champion’s League trophy in it, but other than that, it’s the same as every other FIFA game.
That’s literally all there is to say about it – 7/10.
And take a moment, before you get all shouty in the comments, and think: isn’t this exactly what you wanted to hear about FIFA 19? Yes, we’re kind of joking, but also, entirely serious.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
