EA Sports's long-running soccer series grasps a crucial concept: If it ain't broke, don't fix it. In that vein, FIFA 19—available on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC—is a success, leaning on its tried-and-true career and ultimate team modes. This edition's gameplay feels more realistic than ever thanks to a dynamic first-touch system, and an improved player collision engine that turns every pass and 50-50 ball into a welcome challenge. Experienced players will also enjoy the ability to fine-tune tactics. So whether you came down with World Cup fever this summer or you're a diehard—able to appreciate FIFA's accurate portrayal of Paul Pogba's slow penalty approach—you'll find something to love (and hours to spend) with FIFA 19.
