i picked it up a few weeks ago for $28 because i was itching to play as world cup teams and it's been worth it for me. it'll hold me over until fifa/world cup 22. only problem is it only has the countries that made the world cup group stage, which makes sense since it was as free add-on, but still kind of a bummer.

A few reviews say that the game is geared too much towards offense, meaning a lot of high scoring games

I assume it's the same for 18, but I've been playing a ton of FIFA 17 through EA Access and they do have roster updates that you can apply at the start.

On that note, it looks really likely that FIFA 18 will come to EA Access in the next couple weeks, so if you have an Xbox and don't mind the subscription aspect, you might as well go for the EA Access subscription instead.

you know you're gonna buy this game and play like 7 matches and then never pick it up again, so just get whatever version is cheapest and shut up

This is all sports games for me, and frankly I feel personally attacked.

I bought The Show '18 full price and I have no horsefeathers' clue why I did. I've played it maybe 5 times so far.

I did the same thing. I'll probably do it again in a couple of years too, because enough time will have passed that I'll convince myself this time will be different.

I'll play it a ton over the winter, but I have no idea why I didn't just wait to get it once it was cheaper.
