  • Summary: Fuelled by EA SPORTS IGNITE, FIFA 14 feels alive with players who think, move, and behave like world-class footballers, and dynamic stadiums that come to life. Players have four times the decision making ability and feel alive with human-like reactions, anticipation, and instincts. With 10 times more animation depth and detail than previous consoles, FIFA 14 delivers the dynamic movements and biomechanics of the worlds best footballers. Players are agile and athletic as they plant, pivot and cut, and explode out of each step. The increased fidelity has a game-changing effect on gameplay. Plus, the artistry and athleticism of footballers will come to life with the addition of hundreds of new types of skills and hundreds of new behaviors. And for the first time ever, fans will feel the electricity of a living stadium as the emotions of new 3D crowds rise and fall around the stories on the pitch. Collapse

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    FIFA 14 on the PS4 is absolutely mind blowing. Graphically it is a huge step up from the PS3 version, and it feels completely different (in a good way) to play.

    The new default camera angle really adds to the presentation, and it is still easy to play your natural game. The replays look phenomenal, and the Living Worlds presentation generally looks great, bar the flat looking cars on the roads around the stadium. The crowd really adds to the atmosphere of the game, putting you on edge when defending but giving you a confidence boost when on the attack. The new animations look sweet.

    As usual, Seasons and Ultimate Team are the two strongest modes. The career mode has been improved too as teams controlled by the AI actually have different styles now. Teams lower down the league are easier to beat whereas teams challenging for the title will put up more of a challenge. If you play on World Class or Legendary difficulty, you will love the career mode and will get the most out of it. Pleasingly, the trophies on FIFA 14 are relatively easy to obtain, and I would bet this is probably the easiest game to obtain the prestigious platinum trophy on the PS4 at the moment.

    Pro Clubs has been improved as well, with drop-in matches being limited to 5v5. This means people generally get to play in the position they want to play, and you don't get strikers at right back ruining the game for everybody by not playing properly. However, you can still have eleven human players when you create a club. Just make sure you find defenders that actually want to play in defence.

    The game is near enough perfect, and is easily the best game on PS4 at the time of writing. Both online and offline modes are fun, the commentary is as great as ever, and the game engine is as smooth as anything. If you're thinking about buying this game, do it. A must have for any PS4 owner with even a small interest in football.

    Best football game ever. The Ignite engine used for the PS4 version improves quiet a lot the game, making it smoother, more realistic and even better at most of its features. This game is one step closer to the perfection, and can't wait to see FIFA 15 which will be made almost exclusively for this generation. Expand

    This is the worst FIFA on PS3. At least, if you have played the ones before that, you are going to see the diference. Here's my little review:

    - Gameplay: 6 - the players take some time do your command, and that really sucks. Its hard to kick the ball on the goal, so the one man x goalkeeper and some defenses is really hard. You are going to take at least 10h gameplay to get used on it.

    - Multiplayer: 5 - im really asking you: where are the coops team multiplayer? And the custom tournaments? Damn it!

    - Innovation: 7 - when you are acostumed to the game, you see the game real qualities. You see some game innovations, too. But don't get thinking there are a lot of new things! There are just three, or four, but if you compare it to COD: Ghosts, the game inovated a bit.

    - Graphics: 7 - the graphics are pretty better, but even on the PS4 it doesn't looks like the new "console generation".

    That's it. I don't know, Maybe next year I might give a chance to PES15

    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.

    This isn't a game meant for entertainment, or simulation for that matter. This is a game meant for frustration. The users have little impact on the game because the ball rarely goes to the player you are attempting to pass the ball to. This is due to the fact that the joy stick used to move the player is also the joystick used to aim the passes at the player you are passing it to. This doesn't make any sense as there are times when the user is running down the field and attempts to pass to the right or left while still running down the field and the ball will simply not go where you want it to and end up being intercepted.

    The lobbed through balls are incredibly frustrating on defense because the players on the back line just freeze and watch the streaking defender get the ball and separate from the defense for an easy goal, especially Renaldo as 90% of players online use Real Madrid.

    The Stupidity of the A.I. In real life when a ball is loose in the box, and at least 1 or 2 players around it, they don't just turn around and run back to their defensive positions. On defense, the back line is constantly getting out of position in the most ridiculous ways.

    The fouls or lack there of, is also incredible. You get away with raping the opposing players and then they stop play for phantom fouls that almost seem like glitches.

    The goalies make incredible plays as if the ball is goalie seeking missile that can't miss them and yet make the most ridiculous mistakes at critical times.

    EA needs competition, look at what NB2K did to them. They single handedly destroyed NBA LIVE and I can see why. I've heard good things about PES and i'm switching over next year to give it a shot. I know they have some things that hinder them, like licensing issues, but I refuse to give EA anymore of my money after yet another product put out by them. They destroyed MADDEN and now they have destroyed FIFA.

    What Garbage.
