    As comfortable as your fave Predators, but better to look at. A must-buy for footy fans. [Jan 2014, p.71]

    FIFA 14 isn’t a leap into the future of the series; it has a lot in common with the version of FIFA 14 that's already out. There are real flashes of potential, though, and hints at where it may go in the future.

    Compared to the PS3 and Xbox 360 release, FIFA on the PlayStation 4 is a whole new ball game and even though EA have tweaked some of the gameplay modes, it is for the better and this version is definitely superior in terms of gameplay, controls and graphics.

    FIFA 14 exudes polish from every pore. It’s a great all-rounder, able to entertain players of all abilities. Until Battlefield fixes its problems, there isn’t a better multiplayer game on PS4 either. Sports fan or no, there aren’t many more complete games you can pick up this launch window.

    With the next-gen consoles the public looks more alive than ever. The feeling of a ‘twelfth man’ behind you is overwhelming. A steady home victory for FIFA.

    FIFA 14 is a rip-roaring success on the PlayStation 4. The older version is great, too; it’s just an understated greatness when compared to the upgraded version.

    This is not only the most well-realised soccer simulation on the market, it's also one of the best launch titles available for Sony's next generation system.

    It’s a shame that some modes haven’t made the cut for the next-gen version, but you’ll only miss them if you played them a lot. Career Mode and FUT still offer incredibly high value for money, and this is probably the best version of FIFA to date.

    The next-gen incarnation of FIFA 14 doesn't offer anything really new except the Ignite engine. EA Sports has improved a really good football game, and right now it is excellent. Animations and object collisions aren't funny anymore, and controlling the ball (even though harder than before) is even closer to the real thing. FIFA 14 on the PS4 looks and feels like watching a real game on your TV.
  10. FIFA 14 on PS4 is a worthy upgrade, but by and large is the same game you probably already own. If you’re still waiting for a complete overhaul... well let’s see what EA does next year. [Christmas 2013, p.81]

    The improvements over the last-gen version may not be huge, but the more you play, the more noticeable they become. EA has used the added power to streamline and refine the recipe that made FIFA 13 and 14 great on the old consoles.

    While FIFA 14 might not present the revolutionary leap many of us imagined with the shift to a new generation of consoles, it is undoubtedly the best soccer game that’s ever been released.

    At the end of 90 minutes, FIFA 14 on the next-gen consoles doesn’t deliver anything jawbreaking, instead opting to improve the game through graphics, animations, and minor gameplay tweaks.

    With FIFA 14, EA Sports has the reigns of the soccer industry firmly within its grasp, delivering a prominent title that will appease the large majority of fans of The Beautiful Game.
  15. FIFA 14 is one of the few launch games to have evolved in ways that aren’t solely graphics-based, and every one of its changes brings clear, distinguishable improvement. This is an essential day one purchase and – quite literally – the football game you’ve waited generations for.

    It’s the same FIFA 14 we can find on old-gen but with several graphic enhancements and a better physic response.

    FIFA 14 doesn’t take any major leaps forward, instead focusing on fine-tuning the major innovations the series has taken in the last couple of years.

    FIFA 14 for the next-gen continues the good work done by the current-gen iteration when it comes to synching up players' footwork during shots to produce varied and realistic results.

    FIFA 14 makes use of the Ignite Engine in this new console generation, making it a much more realistic experience. Besides, the graphic improvements will allow us to enjoy a graphic detail unheard of in the previous generation.

    Next-gen FIFA is a step in a good direction, although it’s not that different from the FIFA 14 released for PC, X360 and PS3. New animations are visible throughout the whole match and the veterans will also appreciate new, more realistic ball physics. [01/2014, p.48]

    FIFA 14 shows off what lies ahead for the series on the PlayStation 4. While it's first effort on the next gen consoles falls short in several areas, it still makes a great first impression and leaves me excited for the next iteration of the series.

    Those who were eagerly waiting for the next-gen football simulation will have to wait a little longer for FIFA 15. Let's be direct: we're far from the great promises made by EA all along the year. It's visually cleaner, more flowing, there are some new animations and the atmosphere has clearly improved in the stadiums. But that's all folks.

    FIFA 14 is a great soccer game, and this goes for the new versions as well. Not only is it prettier, but it plays better. EA doesn't do away with existing issues though.

    Some useful improvements to the already solid current gen versions, although the loss of some game modes means it’s not the ultimate edition it could’ve been.

    Dribbling in this year's current-gen instalment always felt a little jittery - as though you were constantly teetering on the edge of control - but dribbling on next-gen is much better. You can now move the ball around in tight spaces with greater confidence, even completing neat little one-twos in close quarters where you might previously have lost possession.

    FIFA 14 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One is a step above it's peers. Whether you're scoring in front of a screaming Kop or eking out an unlikely cup victory, FIFA 14 produces special moments that will live in your memory long after you've put the controller down.

    When a sequel comes out, you usually have a basic expectation that it will be better than the last. If I look solely at the Pro Clubs feature of the game. Albeit somewhat mproved from the previous gen version of Fifa 14, but the improvement is mostly in the smoothness of the running and the crowd looks a lot more realistic. The main problem though, with Pro Clubs, is every single game you have, against every time, its the same, all any team ever does is play a chipped through ball, every time they get the ball.
    It's curious reading the critics' reviews and how they are calling it more realistic than ever, as I can not say I often see chipped through balls in football often at all, let alone every single time a team gets the ball. The entirety of Pro Clubs is based on holding the X or Jockey button when you're not on the ball, and then when you get the ball, hitting chipped through ball to a runner on the counter. It's so repetitive it is quite incredible.
    Head to heads are ok, but I wouldn't say they were an improvement on Fifa 13.
    But the worst thing about Fifa 14 is Ultimate team. Ultimate team has been for the last couple of years my favourite part of the game, trading players, saving coins, building your team. EA have made a catastrophe and removed Formation cards, which has in turn flooded the market. Where on the last few years you could sell certain types of players for 1k or 2k a piece, they are now practically worthless, and earning coins has become so much harder to the point where I can not bring myself to play this version of the game. What a disappointment.
    The game is better than Fifa 14 on the 360 or ps3, so I will score it accordingly, but overall, still an overhyped, over rated, and mostly poor game.

    Release a game that has features missing, what makes it worse this time is that they deliberately misled people into thinking this is a complete fifa. No mention of these features missing until after the issue was raised on forums.

    - Creation Center
    - Tournament Mode (Creating custom tournaments)
    - No Guest play in Seasons
    - No Co-Op seasons, just a few.. a next gen fifa game with no tournament mode has to be the stupidest. And the excuse for this is even worse.
