From outdated gameplay too horrible franchise features they continue to fail every year.” Another stated “Awful excuse for a game. Players won’t block sometimes, loading screens and interface are BAD, MUT is a money grab, switching players is worse than ever. Every EA Sports title just seems to get worse..”
The Meta score from critics was not that bad, which is currently at 62. It is a mixed or average reviews based on 16 Critic Reviews.
