Game is good but things need fixing

FIFA 18 is a good game I enjoy playing it but here are a few things that went wrong in that year's game. The penalties are so rubbish you end up shooting over the bar, very wide or saved by the keeper. In previous FIFA games, you could easily score so I hate the new way of penalties so much. You tend to shoot over the bar or shoot a weakened shot more often it is very frustrating no matter how hard or soft you tap the button. But other than that I think it's a fun game to play. The last FIFA I ever played until the broken 19 and 20 versions came out. Don't know what 21 will be like.
