    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.. Worth Buying the game. Expand

    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.

    FIFA 14 brings very little new to the table in modes, etc. However, the actual gameplay seems more polished, you get a sense of weight passingFIFA 14 brings very little new to the table in modes, etc. However, the actual gameplay seems more polished, you get a sense of weight passing and such unlike the previous incarnations. Career Mode is much better, but I only play career mode so I'm afraid I cannot vouch for other features. However, due to modability on the PC, you can improve the game and add quite a few teams and gameplay aspects that you can't on console so that's nice too. However, these don't make up for the fact that EA has improved very little in FIFA in exchange for 50 dollars in what could have been essesntially an update. Expand

    A very fun game to play against friends if there's enough beer involved. Just like PES2014 in other words. Against AI and online is simplyA very fun game to play against friends if there's enough beer involved. Just like PES2014 in other words. Against AI and online is simply pointless... well I can understand why young people (10-15) might enjoy this shallow piss of a game because they aren't usually very demanding. I was like that myself, we all were more or less.

    Anyway, football games are in a sad state compared to other sports games.. maybe football is simply too complex to emulate or maybe the game companies doesn't really try. Either way... the result is bad.

    EA are ruining gaming for all of us. If we allow this to continue then we are solely to blame, they are nothing more than a corporate machineEA are ruining gaming for all of us. If we allow this to continue then we are solely to blame, they are nothing more than a corporate machine interest only in money. Content needs only to be addictive never well made the days of good quality games made by brilliant developers died when publishers realised how much they could make from DLC's and addons. Its quite honestly a disgrace when you consider how good things used to be. 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
