EA has released a trial version of its flagship football game. FIFA Football: Gameplay Beta or FIFA 19 Mobile, as it has been called, will soon arrive with a new first-rate graphics and visual engine. However, EA takes the term “mobile” very seriously and the game suffers precisely because of that. We tested the beta available on Google Play.
– FIFA 19 Mobile has automatic mode
Just like the previous version (FIFA Football) that eliminated entire matches, FIFA 19 Mobile maintains this style of gameplay and goes beyond. By default, the game is 100% automatic. Fortunately it is possible to disable everything and return to the traditional buttons.
However, at the time we tested the beta, the button commands are with a certain delay, and it's not even the fault of the smartphone, which runs the game with an unparalleled smoothness. But this smoothness won't be for everyone.
– FIFA 19 Mobile is a heavy game?
However, it is evident that FIFA 19 Mobile will be a bit of a heavy game. Many players are complaining of lag and “stutters”. However, if you have a mid-range smartphone with Snapdragon 600 series and 4GB of RAM, you will run the game without any problems.
The weight is justified by the very beautiful graphics. In comparison with other games of the genre such as PES 2019 and DLS 2018, FIFA 19 Mobile is by far the football game with the best graphics today.
– Disappointment in game modes
To the dismay of many, FIFA 19 Mobile doesn't add many game modes. The game maintains the "Ultimate Team" scheme. The experience is broken down into stages that need to be played like practice, matches against the machine, and matches against other players.
As in the previous game, the matches are asynchronous. You are not playing directly with the person, you only play the moves that bring “danger” to the opponent's goal.
There are still other locked modes, but apparently we won't have the chance to compete with friends in a local versus or play a full multiplayer versus match.
Another disappointment is the style of how to acquire the content. There are only 55 MB of data to download. However, the game requires constant downloads. Playing over 3G or 4G can be disastrous if your data pack is small.
