Key points for me:
Good multiplayer fun, the modes will hopefully be expanded and some of them are not tremendously fun but some are great i.e supremacy, walker assault, dropzone etc.
Really got the Star Wars feel spot on, amazing graphics and sound.
Fun gameplay, it's not COD/battlefield level of sophistication but it's a reasonably level playing field and easy to pick up and play whilst also being open to players developing skill sets.
The lack of a campaign and solo play is not a factor for me, that is why I play the likes of MGS, Witcher etc so I purchased this game for multiplayer action which is what I have got.
Overall I can understand the complaints and I would have preferred a complete game up front rather than a ton of add ons through DLC. The guys complaining that air combat is too easy should figure out how to take it to the next level and the same with the rest of the game play imo. My conclusion is that it is a good game which might become great with updates, I've enjoyed it so far and am not bored after a couple of weeks.… Expand

Ultimate teams is very addictive again and the game feels improved from Fifa 14 with the graphics a highlight but on most of the points that count it is a failure. I purchase Fifa mainly to play online and at first I got smashed by more experienced players which is understandable as I learnt the game mechanics. Once I began to get a feel for the game and got a few wins under my belt. As I got to playing against more skilled players I started to notice the flaws in the game as those games are generally tight.
The major downsides of the game are:
AI seems to have gone further backwards, a loose ball around the opposition box will be ignored by your players who in addition never make intelligent runs. Defenders will not attack loose balls either when the opponent is counter attacking, this usually results in a easy run in for opposition attackers as your defense decides to watch the game rather than be involved.
The gameplay is extremely slow with players looking very labored at times, the physics are shocking at time's with balls bouncing off players and some players just seem unable to control the ball without taking 4 touches.
The goalkeepers have been improved but at time's will make amazing saves and at other time's let in ridiculous near post shots that would be saved 99% of the time in real life soccer.
The Ref's have gone backwards as well, I have seen players be completely taken out with no foul, red cards being handed out for tackles around the box for no obvious reason and general fouls having very little consistency.
Overall I am very disappointed with the game and will be looking at PES 2015, if it has improved gameplay then I will be switching brands and trading Fifa unless a very expansive patch is released very soon. Fifa has not done enough in terms of fixing the simple mechanics of the game to make it enjoyable. As someone who is happy to buy a new soccer game every year mostly for the online play, it has become extremely frustrating and no longer enjoyable.
If I was rating this as a newly developed game rather than something that has been built upon for a few years now then I'd probably give it a 6 but as the game has gone backwards in every way that really counts I have decided on a 3 rating.… Expand

The only way to win in UT is to constantly foul the other team and play balls over the top with the midfield passing being terrible, every second goal I concede is because of the ridiculous auto player switching which leaves me completely stranded....The game has destroyed my faith in EA and this will be the last time I purchase a Fifa, massive opportunity for PES to win my vote.… Expand
Average User Score: 4.2Nov 15, 2013The worst Fifa I have played since the PES dominance days, I have been playing Fifa from the beginning (Fifa 95) and this has got to be theThe worst Fifa I have played since the PES dominance days, I have been playing Fifa from the beginning (Fifa 95) and this has got to be the most frustrating and idiotically designed game to come out of EA. They have taken out the best elements of Fifa 13/12 and added more terrible gameplay. The player selection is utterly shocking with switches consistently taking place at key moments which lead to lost chances or a conceded goal. The lob through pass is abused and makes it quite easy to score, the goalkeepers have become terrible and make amazing saves in some games and then frequently let in simple shots. Overall the single player mode is terrible but its ultimate team where Fifa really drop the ball, I've purchased around 20-30 packs and I have yet to get one decent player. This will be the last Fifa I will be purchasing and EA has done some serious damage to their reputation in my books.… Expand
