FIFA 23 allows you to turn off comments that criticize your play, so you don’t have to listen to how you’re letting the team down.
According to eurogamerthis new feature is now available after FIFA 23 Early Access was released a day early on EA Play.
Just go into your settings and check the box marked “Turn off critical comment” to ensure you only get the best pep talk from the likes of Derek Rae, Stewart Robson, and Alex Scott. Enters!
Checking this box means you won’t get any feedback criticizing your playing, so no more feedback about your shoddy defense to begin with. However, you will still get the regular feedback they say during a match.
It is likely that this feature was included in the game simply to provide a more positive experience for some players. But it’s also quite handy if your kids play too. After all, it can be a bit daunting when you first take the pad, and that could get even worse if Stewart Robson is grilling you about your below-average performance.
But the feature may still need some work… During testing, Eurogamer found that disabling critical feedback during a FIFA Ultimate Team Division Rivals match did absolutely nothing. “Robson still got into my ending and had some choice words for poor Mason Mount,” Eurogamer said.
Still, it sounds like a useful edit for more sensitive gamers when it works.
