    Yes, it's disappointing that PC gamers don't get the new Ignite engine, but it's still a fantastic and improved simulation, becoming more and more realistic.

    It also has unparalleled variety for a sports game. There are just so many different ways to consume it.

    I’m not sure there is enough extra content to warrant a purchase from FIFA 13 unless you’re a diehard fan and want the up to date player lists, but if it’s been a couple of years since you’ve looked at a FIFA title, then there is no reason why you shouldn’t be getting FIFA 14.

    FIFA 14 has the same old problems as previous incarnations, but it remains the same great football game. [Dec 2013, p.84]

    FIFA 14 is a mature, well designed game without spectacular innovations. The new shooting system or a bigger influence of the Fist Touch Control system are interesting conveniences, and transfer improvements or novelties in the FIFA Ultimate Team mode are most welcome. FIFA 14 continues ideas introduced in the previous installments - sometimes stability is better than bragging about a revolution (that never came).

    FIFA 14 is the reassuring central-defensive midfielder of the series. Dependable, rather than revelatory. Physical, tenacious and tight on space. It does the job without fuss, but also lacks flair.

Its the best football game till date. Much more realistic features, improved gameplay than FIFA 13.Awesome game play much slower, which makes it more realistic. Some genuine improvements, particularly in terms of animation, physics, artificial intelligence, and Ultimate Team. Top notch presentation and the usual full suite of licences. Go for it guys..

    Okay, so this game deserves a review, since I've never wrote one before. Really, the User Score (but hey, It's Metacritic, so whatever) isOkay, so this game deserves a review, since I've never wrote one before. Really, the User Score (but hey, It's Metacritic, so whatever) is really not fair. This year its by far the best current-gen FIFA ever made. The people that are about the poor gameplay, are the ones who always "turned and sprinted" their way through FIFA 13. This year it's slow pace is FIFAs best feature, there really isn't a perfect play that always works and that is awesome, there is much more to a match than ever before. Well, the Career Mode isn't that great, but it never was (although the scouting system is pretty neat) but who buys FIFA wor the Singleplayer? The Multiplayer part is really great, Pro Club is much more challenging than last year, which makes it kind of frustrating too. But for me the real star of this game is the 2 Player Coop Season. With a good mate you can have fun for hours straight, and even if you're in the first division there is always the spur to make it to the top of the leaderboards. Finally competitive 2vs2 in FIFA. Bravo EA, thats something I've never said about that company before.

    I also kinda dig the new menus, the soundtrack and the atmosphere (just listen to the stadium anouncers!

    Why not 10? Because they weren't able to give us the "Ignite Engine" on the PC, but well that isn't a cause to give it a really low rating. I'm mostly a PC player, but god damn stop the "PC MASTERRACE!!"

    Fifa 14 is a great soccer game that anybody can pick up and play. Even if you don't know anything about the sport(Like Me). Once I startedFifa 14 is a great soccer game that anybody can pick up and play. Even if you don't know anything about the sport(Like Me). Once I started playing I slowly started figuring out all the rules and positions on my own. Very little learning curve. Once you get the hang of it you can start your own career as a player and work your way up the ranks. Get traded to better teams and win championships.
    Or you can play your career as a player and THEN a manager.
    The one gripe i have about this game would be that the AI needs to be more aggressive on offense.
    I didn't play Fifa 13 so i can't comment on any comparisons between the two. So as a first time player to the series I would recommend you give it a try if you like sports games in general. If you are Soccer(Football) fan than it's an easy call.
    It seems that it's the only sports title EA hasn't managed to screw up. As i have boycotted Madden,NASCAR and NBA Live.
    But hey, Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

    I read a different review that said "much more realistic, much less fun". and I completely agree. The control on the ball is much moreI read a different review that said "much more realistic, much less fun". and I completely agree. The control on the ball is much more realistic, as is the first touch mechanic and all those things. However this makes it much more difficult to control, and makes your players more prone to mistakes that you can't control. Unless you're counterattacking it never seems like there is enough space to build a play. Players close down on you too quickly and since the ball control is less tight it can be very difficult to keep possession in tight areas or get past a couple defenders. Yes this is realistic but it's so not fun. Plus it includes some frustrations from the previous versions: ball clipping through feet/head at the worst times possible, computer AI perfectly controlling powerful blocked shots, occasionally it is frustrating/boring trying to regain possession when the computer decides to be a hog. Rating this game in cursing exclamations per game I'd say Fifa 13 = 2-3, Fifa 14 = 10-15. Heavily frustrating. If you're planning on buying it maybe just update the squads for 13 and wait to see what 15 has in store Expand

    I played FIFA long ago... my last one was 2008, though I loved FIFA 2006. After a long brake I decided to try out one of the "new" ones. Oh myI played FIFA long ago... my last one was 2008, though I loved FIFA 2006. After a long brake I decided to try out one of the "new" ones. Oh my God... What they done to this series?! This game is awful, stupidity of AI controled players is astonishing and why, oh God why, every f***ing team plays this boring 9999 passes football like barcelona? Seriously, this game is a piece of crap. Don't buy it. I bought it yesterday for 8$ and I'm crying after my cash... don't take it even for free. Expand
