  • 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. Expand

    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.

    Anyone that says the PS4 version isn't a step up from the old gen is either a bitter Pro Evo fan or simply has judged the game on a few YouTube videos at 360p as they can't afford a new console.

    FIFA 14 on the PS4 is probably the best football game since the likes of PES 4-6 games on the PS2. The presentation is beyond what I expected with a realistic visual representation of football from the stunning stadiums and crowds to the remarkable attention to detail in terms of the ball and player mechanics. The grass and lighting textures add to the slick graphics and the real-life TV aspect cameras add enormous authenticity.

    The gameplay is more slick and quicker than FIFA 14 on the old generation of consoles. The controls feel tight but you feel like you are in control of a footballer and not erratically pacing and skidding around the pitch like we have seen the last couple of versions. The ball physics is also more realistic and the way players connect with it in terms of control and passing is fantastic. The matches flow incredibly well and the wealth of cinematics really give a genuine TV-style presentation which surprisingly makes you want to avoid skipping cut-scenes. The commentary is also greatly improved along with the stadium atmosphere.

    EA Sports took FIFA as far as they could on the old consoles. I was a bit concerned that the game wouldn't progress even with the scope available on the PS4 but they have done a brilliant job and the my optimism for the future of the series is at an all time high. This game may be missing a few modes and features but there is more than enough here to last you the season. The future is definitely bright and I am very confident EA will continue to innovate and develop the series on even greater levels in years to come.

    Not a giant leap forward into the next-gen but definitely a good sign of things to come for the fifa series.

    Having addressed a lot of
    problems which gamers had from past iterations this upgrade from fifa 14 on current gen to next has a lot of small but great improvements. Such as the new crowd and the fact some grounds now have exteriors, these are cosmetic but vastly improve the atmosphere around the beautiful game that's already there.

    One of the best new improvements though are the 100s of new animations for everything, from taking a corner, goalkick, freekick, etc; to passing, shooting, tackling and more. These vastly increase the variety of each game and make the old generation feel abit stale in comparison. I love that after even 5 or 6 games in a row you might have never seen an animation more than once, which many of you will know is a great feat as usually you see them all bar maybe a bicycle kick in one game.

    With the upgrade from current to next on games (£10/$10/etc) you have even more reason to try the next-gen beautiful game and it won't be a mistake to do so, especially if your an avid football fan.

    See you on the pitch!

    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.

    Although at first the games appear to be great package with enhance next-gen graphics after playing 20+ games you soon notice that the game is not only incomplete, but along with some horrendous bugs and glitches is actually falsely advertised as a competitive game where you can build your own team. The reality is, there is a scripting/handicap algorithm which basically means that 50-80% of games depending on how many packs you buy are pre-determined by the engine. Weird things start happening like your players just won't respond/react in the same way they used to; there is countless information on this including a 2,000+ petition for this to be removed; however EA still denies this exists and even bans discussion on their forum. There is however mounting evidence even from past titles and their own manuals.. All I can say is that if you want a competitive game, this is NOT it. This is a noob friendly glitch fest and buying different players/teams will NOT result in a better team. Expand

    by far one of the worst games of all time. even when you launch the game it says fifa 11, they didn't even bother to remove that. i swear to god EASPORTS payd the reviewers to give this game such a high score. it's a **** disaster. seriously players becdome invisible, players teleport. corners are soo OP to the point that you want to take a knife and throw it at EASPORTS, players teleport randomly when you watch replays of the celebrating, corners are soo dumb that its litterely insane. modric catched up to me whit no stat card and i have biabiany. seriously the stats are **** its like the speed on the players cards don't even matter. penalties are pure luck. in fact everything in this game is pure luck. not to mention that it looks absolutely disasterous, especially the crowd, it looks like something from like 2001, and the corwd looks like 1996. seriously. i can't tell if the game is riddled with hackers or just pure aids. the PC version is even more buggy than the other versions. i hate how these sports games always gets away soo **** cheap, seriously id rather play big rigs: over the road racing, because at least that is fun. this is just whoever has the more aids wins. and you can have a bronze player with like all 90's physical stats high/low workrate and 80 ballcontrol and 50 dribling and like 70+ positioning and like 80+ finishing and shot power and like 70 heading accuracy and then he will litterely be the best player in the game. and i swear to god some players are just plain stupidly buggy. like benteke for instance, when you look at his card stats you would think he would be decent but no he is just plain broken, better than messi and ronaldo ingame Expand
