In our FIFA 20 review I wrote:

FIFA 20 is pretty much what you’d expect from a new FIFA game. FIFA Ultimate Team continues to march on and grow, card packs and all, while the core gameplay has been tweaked, making attacking play feel great as you rip defences apart. The big new feature is Volta Football, and while it’s a fun distraction, it’s not quite as engaging as its FIFA Street predecessors.
