  • Summary: Pure Shot promises to let FIFA fans feel what it is like to connect with the perfect strike while a brand new ball physics system called Real Ball Physics ensures the trajectory of the ball behaves as it would in real life. With Teammate Intelligence in FIFA 14, players have better decision-making and teams play smarter on both the attack and defense to bring the beauty of the game to life. Collapse

    FIFA 14 is still the amazing soccer simulation we know, with a host of improvements and the most complete set of players, teams and game modes.

    Although lacking a bit in terms of innovation when compared with previous iterations, FIFA 14 remains a well balanced, profound and addictive soccer experience, that will be enjoyed by rookies and veterans alike.

    With its extensive licenses, bold and complex yet accessible gameplay, unparalleled online offerings, excellent tutorials, and clean presentation, FIFA 14 may only be a small step up from last year's game, but it remains a fantastic offering overall.

  6. FIFA 14 is the same, fundamentally great game that FIFA 13 was before it. Hard-core fans of the series will doubtlessly enjoy the latest instalment, but casual gamers who picked up last year’s won’t miss much by sitting this one out. There is, after all, a next-generation FIFA game to look forward to.

    FIFA 14 requires more patience than most of its predecessors, and even when your patience is rewarded, it often feels like it's flattering to deceive. Slow and stodgy in midfield but dynamic and physical at either end of the pitch, it's possible that some might think this the best FIFA ever--but you'd be splitting hairs, not defences.

    I love all these people complaining how slow it is. It is a much more realistic game. Those of you complaining about one team being rubbish and the next being spectacular...youre probably playing Ultimate team right? Not every team is the same skill level. Game one may be Pro, game two may be world class, they arent the same.

    This is by far the best and most realistic fifa to date. Solid note to end this generation of consoles on.

    Gráficas: las mismas que fifa 12,13 no varían,
    Jugabilidad: a mi parecer mejoro un poco el accionar del balón, es mas difícil hacer un
    buen pase, la ia de los defensas ya no es tan idiota, aun así los desmarques sin balón no funcionan como debería

    si eres fan de esa saga seguro que ya lo tienes, si quieres darle una oportunidad adelante solo que no esperes algo fuera de lo normal.

    I don't know where to start with this game, Now before people start judging the player I was a huge fan of fifa games I've played them all and each one has made steps to make the game better for the fans. However this years FIFA has been nothing but a sheer disappointment from the laggy and slow menu screens to a clearly unpolished title. A lot of people would jump straight in to blame EA as we all know they do have a terrible history with it's customers and it's products mainly being that people see them as money grabbers who do not care for their audience.

    When I first started hearing about all the new feature in FIFA I was excited to see and find out how it would play, after watching a lot of videos not only by EA but also the FIFA youtubers the excitement got better as they highly praised the game.

    When the demo was released I couldn't wait to get my hands on it and start playing and when I did I was shocked to see how awful the players handled on the pitch. Now of course I tried to shake it off as a new game mechanic and figured it would take some time to get use to, However it has added an unnecessary difficulty to the game that will quite simply push people away from the title.

    As much as I appreciate EA's decision to try making the game more realistic unfortunately they have missed this opportunity to fine tune what was needed to be done. As what EA forget is that at the end of the day it is still just a game and not the real sport.

    Player movement comes across as very clunky and slow the passing and first touch system differs belief considering FIFA 13 had it's issues with the first touch system, It seems that this years version is a lot more difficult to handle from the ball bouncing off players to just down right stupidity from the players.

    It's hard to believe that the players you're using are suppose to be professional footballers unfortunately the game makes you feel as if you're dealing with amateurs who have barely played the sport.

    For me personally what I don't understand is that FIFA games have always been about fun it's always been about the competition and the feeling it gives you when you can out smart your opponent and score great goals.

    This years attempt at FIFA 14 has only left me feeling frustrated and let down by EA as the game is riddled with problems, A lot of mechanics that don't make sense for example are a lot of people claim that "Strength" is the way to go in this years FIFA you're now allowed to use slower defenders simply because you can out muscle the attackers. However this has yet again got it's own problems as people have already figured out a way to avoid this and this is to simply run down the wing and cross the ball in in which 9/10 crosses will succeed in a goal.

    A lot of people will read this review and just think it's another rage kid just throwing out frustration at EA for the sake of just doing it, But I person have always enjoyed FIFA games as they've had their own flaws but this years game has been nothing short of a flop in my eyes. I'm sure for many other players the game is great and has given them the experience they've always wanted but when it comes to just enjoying the game EA have almost stripped the fun aspect of the game straight out of it.

    With a lack of contact from EA in the forums I can only figure that they are avoiding all responsibility of the games problems and have chosen to ignore it's fans for another year running.

    Now I'm going to be generous when I rate this game and will only go out of my way to give it a 5 simply because of how the game feels it's hard for all the wrong reasons and has lost it's fun edge, EA have clearly tried to make the title a more serious game but sadly not everyone was looking for a serious experience.

    Diabolical is the only way to describe this game which has been written by people who haven't seen a game if footy in their lives. Spamming long balls all game seems to be the only way to play this joke of a game. Expand

    DON'T BUY THIS GAME!

    You don't play this game. You just follow the script. All the matches are scripted by EA. They decide when you win,
    when you lose, everything is scripted.

    And it's just the same thing of FIFA 13, just slower, I don't know why

    It's sad because I was a FIFA fan since FIFA 98, and this is the end of the line for this series for me. Another title that's a copy of the previous one and full of script.

    What I most like in videogaming was the fact that we can decide our destiny, we decide what happens in the screen. EA, since FIFA 12, destroyed this: you don't play a football videogame, you just follow the script the game definied for each match

    Run away from this crap
