Rated 8 out of 10 by hup01 Good and bad
This game is very exciting and looking forward to buy it before the world cup. But after it is over, the excitement of playing this game is kind of over. It is some what like 2010 WC game but this is better because it has updated teams and all and the Soundtrack is great! Good game to keep as a memory. It would've been better to buy it before the WC

Not a next-gen title... not buying it. Why is the game industry still low-balling there most loyal consumers and instead of developing new and innovative games they are hashing out lesser versions on obsolete systems. They sure like to talk a big talk about the next-gen systems yet developers are making more games for the old-gen systems. Overall this reflects the industries lack of creativity, loyalty, and greed. Move forward, not backwards.
Rated 10 out of 10 by AdvisingUser Better than I expected actually!:))
Im actually a huge football (soccer) fan but when it comes to games, I don't have huge expectations!
Rated 9 out of 10 by FifaGamer Much better then 2010 World Cup
The game is awesome. The only letdown I can think of is that its not on the next gen consols and the graphics are the same as fifa 14. But it has much more pros like captain your country (a mode thats pretty much career mode), World cup, world cup online, road to rio, kick off and much more.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Lhog It is a great game if you like soccer.
I think that the producer of the game knew what they were doing when they made this game. It is better than the last one but the only suggestion is that they should have released it a month later so all the people who wanted to buy it would get tired of FIFA 14 first and they would want a new soccer game.q

Rated 3 out of 10 by Gadget This is basically FIFA WC 2010
I am a big World Cup fan. The thrill of your country or any other country I'm rooting for, seeing them play is just awesome.
So here this game came out yesterday and it feels like I'm playing the same game that I played in 2010. Now this can be good and bad. To me it left a bad taste in my mouth.
World Cup 2010 was an awesome game at the time. Everything was pretty much perfect.
Hearing about World Cup 2014 as how it was going to be made to the limits of xbox 360, made me excited again to get this game.
After playing this version though, it looks like they reached the xbox 360 limits in 2010. The game does not bring anything significant to the table to make it worth getting.
Now if you have never played any previous World Cup games or skipped the 2010, I think this will be the game for you, as you will get to learn how to play the game with mini skill challenges that the game offers, which is kind of nice.
So let me put this in a pro and cons list.
-Up to date team members of each national team.
-Great same gameplay as 2010
-Has mini games(skill challenges/training). Great for beginners and skilled alike.
-Now you can listen to commentaries from 2 radio world cup shows, or play EA sound track instead during training or while at the menu list before your next match. (Kind of cool.)
-While FIFA 14 was available on all platforms, this one is not. (Xbox One version would have been great and should have been made)
-Graphics are the same and possibly (not noticeable) slightly worse than 2010 version.
-Road to Rio, does not work as the servers seem to be screwed up.
-Servers seem to not be able to connect to players on launch day. (You don't always get what you pay for)
-Commentaries have pretty much not changed at all during game. Just a huge disappointing port of voices over from 2010. (I thought this was a new game that hopefully was worked on for 4 years... looks like not at all.)
-Fun facts on each country or any other info are completely gone.
-Common weird glitches with players colliding and flying like balls themselves.
The biggest disappointment is that they were so lazy and probably late on the game that they did an eh job so they didn't make this game available for Xbox One or PS4.
That alone, right there is not worth the $60 for an older console.
If this were like $40 at launch it would have actually be more appealing.
I say wait till World Cup starts, you'll be able to pick up a pre-owned copy of it for $40 or less.
EA just continues it's fails with inability to release new games.
From what I heard this happened before with another FIFA title.
I think it was the FIFA13 that looked and worked exactly the same as FIFA12, just had a different number on the title.
Now I don't want to focus on EA as a company, but to keep this as a game review.
This game should have been more and could have been, but this one does not deserve the price tag or the 5 stars.
You might as well go play FIFA WC 2010, the servers don't work in either one.
