FIFA 22: Players complain about ‘super slow’ gameplay during EA Play Trial

FIFA 22

FIFA 22 is already receiving negative feedback on the back of the EA Play Early Access which started yesterday.

With EA's latest creation to drop officially in just over a week, some players have managed to get their hands on the game early and have been testing out some of the newly-added features.

New elements have been added to the likes of Career Mode, Ultimate Team and gamers can even create their own club now. But mainly, the focus was on the gameplay itself.

In recent years, EA have been criticised for essentially providing the same game, year in, year out. But it's obvious already that FIFA 22 is completely different to FIFA 21.

FIFA 22 Gameplay

The gameplay element of FIFA 22 was the core argument in terms of the game's complaints, which was mainly focused on the arcade-style pace of the game. 

It is unsure which platforms the game was tested on. But with over 4000 new animations added to the game thanks to the introduction of HyperMotion Technology, it is likely that it was on either PS5 or Xbox Series X/S as this is not available for last-gen or PC.

Jake_FutTrading led the protests against the new style of gameplay on social media, questioning the lack of variety in attack and how much pace has been taken out of it, with the emphasis being on "defensive styles."

These thoughts are echoed by FUTZONE, who has been a key part of the FIFA online community over the last few months - releasing leaks regarding everything FIFA 22 related.

It looks like this technology is here to stay and due to the impressive way that it was initially tested, this is the new direction that FIFA is going in. It is more aimed at simulation football rather than going down the route of arcade mechanics which, as you can see, is not to please everyone.

FIFA 22 will be released on 1st October for PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
