    If you are an Ultimate Team die-hard then maybe 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil won’t be for you, but if you are a FIFA fan and excited about the upcoming World Cup then definitely give this one a try. The only thing there is to dislike about it is the new podcasters that you can have talking during the menus.

    In the way that sports games go, this is every bit a $60 release, even with availability limited to aging hardware.

    The price tag is quite absurd, but you can't ignore the high quality EA Sports can offer in its football games and this quality is present here.

    Its fuse may burn shorter than most, but between June and July its flame will be dazzling.

    As expected, 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil struggles to find its own identity when compared with FIFA 14, and beyond the fresh presentation, there's no evolution at all. The game has great controls and makes up for the lack of atmosphere in FIFA 14, but EA didn't put too much effort in the game modes, and the charm will fade immediately after the World Cup ends.

    Until the next real FIFA, this is a well-playing stop-gap that will firmly hold your attention in the run-up to - and for the duration of - the World Cup.

    Essentially last-gen FIFA 14 with a World Cup mode and a bit of presentational spit and polish. Not worth the money.

    okay, so i'm giving this a 10 even though it should get a 5 or 6. Yeah yeah..well the reason is some of you idiots gave it a 0.

A polished game top game from earlier from this year with no additions at least deserves 5 or 6. So there you have it..10. to balance your stupid reviews. Justice Expand

    obviously this game is a money grabbing effort from ea and should really be dlc, i just cant recommend it based on the price, but based onobviously this game is a money grabbing effort from ea and should really be dlc, i just cant recommend it based on the price, but based on gameplay I am loving it:

    i have been enjoying the wc game but first, looking at some of these reviews others have written, they are complaining about passing mechanics, speed of players, and their inability to successfully land a slide tackle?
    the passing requires skill in terms of direction and strength, players are slower than 14, and tackling requires timing. otherwise like real football, a missed slide could lead to a goal.

    players are slower which means people don't try to abuse either (a) bomb down the wing and cross (b) play over the top to a speedy runner. they actually have to occasionally play intricate football!!!
    shooting is refined and the dip on long shots is very satisfying. new corner mechanics are interesting and the overpowered pinpoint crossing from 14 is removed, as is the ridiculous bicycle clearance defenders used to do.
    overall i have been enjoying the game and it has a carnaval atmosphere with the presentation and the samba music, but I cannot imagine myself or the on line servers sustaining this game for long until fifa 15

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Apenas uma DLC: muito caro pelo conteúdo. Leve melhorada na Jogabilidade e nos gráficos. Acredito que
    foi desenvolvido meio que as pressas para o PS3 e XBOX360. Para os amantes de futebol e games de futebol, a compra é certa.

    EA has been doing this for a while, and its not improving. Its a compilation of what they have been doing for a while. FIFA World Cup 2010 onEA has been doing this for a while, and its not improving. Its a compilation of what they have been doing for a while. FIFA World Cup 2010 on PSP was better than this, at least it had an option for putting in weaker and unqualifyable teams (Jordan, Antigua & Barbadua, Samoa etc.) which makes it a delight. This...was an unexcusable mess of just Ultimate Team and FIFA 13 with a splash of International and there you have it. Not at all worth it. Expand

    alright this is my second review and the game is still garbage! (Apr 21, 2014) ..... its simply a game full of retards running down the field,alright this is my second review and the game is still garbage! (Apr 21, 2014) ..... its simply a game full of retards running down the field, i play on legandary mode and I decided to use Canada because its pretty easy to win with brazil, argentina, spain or any other powerhouse and heres whats really garbage about this...... i get a throw in, just because it's canada he cant throw a ball 2 feet to the guy beside but somehow will toss it well over his head and must of landed somewhere in the atlantic ocean! just because you are a lower rated team shouldnt mean this cant dribble a ball or make passes, they cant even make a pass to anyone unless you are playing a team thats even worse then canada. so i decided to create a player as a 99 rating (in all categorys) to help canada, and even that player is garbage, as if he doesnt even exist. (sure he will score 2-3 goals against garbage teams but as soon as you play a team just as good he becomes a nobody. just because Canada is a lower class team the players are useless against better teams, they always hide behind their players, they stop on run's like dummys , they cant take or make a pass, they become slow while the computer becomes supersonic speed mode or somthing....you will know within 1-2 minutes if the computer wants YOU to lose because you wont touch the ball or make a half decent play for the rest of the game. just because a team is considered a powerhouse shouldnt mean that they are the only ones who can create plays, runs, passes, goals...... the lob passes in the game are useless. it really annoys the **** outta me when you watch the players behind the scenes on the game, you try to do give and go's but never work and every one seems to be an offside in the games...ANNOYING as FUK Expand
