Famitsua famous Japanese newspaper, published i reviews ratings of the week and among these we can also see how well FIFA 23 was received: the game achieved the highest rating of the week. Specifically, i votes of the week of Famitsu are as follows:
Easy Come Easy Golf (Switch) – 8/8/8/7 [31/40]
FIFA 23 (PS5, Xbox Series, PS4, Xbox One, Switch) – 8/9/8/9 [34/40]
Labyrinth of Zangetsu (PS4, Switch) – 7/7/6/7 [27/40]
Ultra Kaiju Monster Rancher (Switch) – 8/8/8/8 [32/40]
As you can see, it comes down to three minor games accompanying FIFA 23. Easy Come Easy Golf is a cartoon-style golf game, Labyrinth of Zangetsu is a dungeon crawler with role-playing mechanics based on Japanese folklore, while Ultra Kaiju Monster Rancher is a game dedicated to giant monsters typical of the Japanese television, in which 200 different Kaiju are trained and made to fight.
The FIFA 23 soccer goal
FIFA 23 is the game with the highest rating, with two eights and two nines giving it a 34 out of 40. In our review we were instead a bit more critical, stating: “That FIFA 23 would have been a transitional chapter, before the rebranding by now imminent, we all knew it a little. There was therefore the very strong risk that the EA Sports football simulator would arrive on the market by borrowing every ounce of its playful offer from previous editions, and if this danger has ruinously materialized if we look at how little effort the studio has infused into the reform of the game modes, the new FIFA is also the one that applies a real gameplay miracle, after years of obscurantism. The methodical rewriting of the commandments so dear to the series produces a game model to Marxist traits, in which it is the choral maneuver – and never the individual – that brings the group to victory. Will the last FIFA therefore be remembered as the most innovative? Absolutely not, but probably nte as the funniest one. And this somehow absolves its makers of many of the sins they have committed. “
