FIFA 18: Alex Hunter’s final in-game stats have been LEAKED – and fans are far from impressed

The youngster's better than last year but still has some way to go

FIFA 18 fans will no doubt be itching to get their hands on Alex Hunter as the young star returns for the second chapter of The Journey.

However, if his new ratings are anything to go by, he’s still some way off being the star player we were hoping for.

A screenshot has emerged showing off Hunter’s FIFA 18 stats – and they’re decent if not spectacular.

They’ve come from a gamer who claims to have completed Hunter Returns and was given the card as a reward.

The rising star boasts 79 for pace, 78 for shooting, 70 for passing and 76 for dribbling.

His defensive work is shockingly low at 50, while 73 physical means he’s likely to get pushed off the ball.


Unsurprisingly, fans aren’t too impressed with Hunter’s new ratings.

One wrote on the FIFA sub-Reddit: “Better than last year, still not particularly awesome.”

Another said: “Still no 4 star skill moves. That all I wanted.”

So, what do we think about FIFA 18?

FIFA 18 is a far superior game than FIFA 17 – but there are still some issues.

Frostbite, for all its good looks, still brings with it numerous annoying glitches and errors. We hope EA patches these in the coming weeks.


However, when it comes to gameplay, the shift towards a more tactical experience is welcome – encouraging you to really think about the game, and rewarding you amply when you do.

We’ve haven’t had a long enough go on FIFA 18 on the Nintendo Switch, but from what we’ve seen, it’s an incredibly impressive package, too.

PES 2018, on the other hand, is vastly different – offering a faster, arguably more fun, football experience.

Sounds great … where’s the cheapest place to pick it up?

As supply will outweigh demand, loads of top retailers will be vying for your business, meaning a lot of the best FIFA 18 deals can be had closer to launch on September 29.

We’ve pulled together the best FIFA 18 deals here – and we’ll keep updating should we spot any more.

Right now, you can expect to fork out £49.99 for the game in most stores. Game has the edge, though, giving you a free month-long pass for Now TV.

The cheapest place for the Nintendo Switch version of the game is Argos, coming in at £47.99.

Remember, if you’re not too sure whether to pick up the game, be sure to try out the FIFA 18 demo.

Sadly, there will be NO Switch demo – so Nintendo fans will have to wait a little longer. Given its focus on online play, EA may be holding off the trial until the servers are up to speed.
