FIFA 18 Is Now Available On Nintendo Switch

There are 7.37 million more pixels on a 4K TV than a Nintendo Switch screen, but does that make it the better canvas for playing a game of soccer? Not necessarily.  According to EA , FIFA 18 is the first good football game available on the Nintendo Switch. So, comparing the handheld version with the normal one doesn’t make sense.  It has to be judged on it’s own terms.

The Switch version uses its own modified engine rather than the Frostbite technology that powers FIFA on other consoles. The game runs at 720p in handheld mode and 1080p when docked with a TV, thankfully at 60 frames a second in both cases. Graphically, there’s no getting away from the fact that it’s nowhere near as impressive as the other versions.

However, the game feels a lot more technically advanced when you’re playing it in your hands. And really, that’s the main selling point of FIFA 18 for Switch. You shouldn’t get this version if you own a PS4 or Xbox One and plan to play it exclusively at home. But the ability to make progress on your season from anywhere and then continue on the big screen when you get back to your couch is incredibly appealing.

FIFA 18 for Switch isn’t perfect, but it’s an excellent effort for a first entry on a new system with less than a year’s development time. It’s the deepest and most satisfying portable soccer game we have ever played, and it bodes well for third-party games on the Switch, an area where Nintendo has struggled quite a bit in recent years.
