Horrible Game. DONT waste time or money!!
probably the worst game ea/fifa has released ever. If you like the game of football/soccer don't play this game. it will ruin all the respect you have for the game. Ball control is what you would expect a 3 year old to be doing. Pace has no relevance to this game because the defenders are set to be faster than the attackers, therefore you lose all advantage of having pace. The computer AI is non existent. For example if you are not controlling the player the computer simulates the other players as mentally handicapped. They will stand around and do nothing waiting for you to switch to them.
Good game but the headers need 2 be fixed
The headers are so annoying but good graphhics. Not sure about the next-gen thing but okay game for non-soccer fans.
I LOVE THIS GAME!
This game is great! I love soccer and this game shows why I love soccer so much! I played this game on Christmas and the game knew it was Christmas and wished me a Merry Christmas! :D It was so cool! It even picks up your voice with kinect so if I got mad at the game for a second because the other team scored and I went "Uhhhhh" but loudly; it picked it up and then said "I think the manager was very upset about that play" or something great like that. The ratings don't reflect this game well because it is a 10!
Great Addicting Game
This is by far my favorite sports game that I have ever purchased, the graphics are insane, I bought this game when it came out and it gets more and more fun every time that I play it, the announcers actually make sense when they talk unlike normal sports game announcers, and this game made me love soccer and I wasn't really a fan before. The only problem about this game is that it may take a while to get good at it.
Most frustrating game to date.
You would think by FIFA 14 the developers would have been able to figure out some of the frustrating aspects of the game, for example: passing to the exact opposite player you intended to pass to, unfair matching of opponents, excessive running off-sides, being called for a weak foul, not getting called for a serious foul, goalies rebounding the ball directly to the other team, and the most frustrating of all, SCRIPTING. The game is obviously programmed to make the end of every half and the end of every game especially intense to simulate how a team would "realistically" gain momentum to try to surge and score in the final minutes; however, this doesn't actually happen in every single real life game. When someone is on a breakaway in the final minutes their likelihood of scoring increases and your defenders are very likely to make mistakes and your goalie is likely to become useless. It's almost as if at the beginning of the game a winner is chosen to have an advantage. I have bought FIFA 10-14 and was most disappointed with 14. It seems the developers have managed to move back a step as far as fairness and true realism goes.
Annoyed Returning Player
The servers are god awful making most games lag. And fifa 14 has more bugs than innovations. fifa 13 was better. Causes more rage than happiness. Terrible job EA
Fifa 14 was not as good as i thought it would be. The game play is difficult to get used to if you have played the other fifa games. The shooting is better though and it gives you more options or game modes to play. If you like soccer or fifa 13, get this one!
Some great additions makes it a winner
So many folks say this game is bad because of the game play which shows that they are more into games in which you can just sprint from one end of the pitch to the other and score at will. With this year's installment of FIFA that aspect of the game is gone in favor of a more realistic feel. Much of what has made this game great is still here as well as a much more in-depth managerial mode. That addition does add a good length of time when it comes to going through a year in career mode but if you are in to realism you will like it. I also want to say the addition of the new leagues from South America gives you more playing and transfer options which is a real plus as well.
Hardcore players BEWARE
The game upon had a rough start, many people had freezing and it was un- playable. The gameplay was fun to play Ultimate team was fun, but then they put out a patch that turned the game into a huge headache no one plays the way they want to and the game mechanics are horrible. Only good thing that it has is playing with your friends with co op seasons, it sucks because i am a huge FIFA fan.... people have said it may be good on next gen so wait until then
Let's get things straight...
I've been reading the other reviews for this game, and everyone judges instantly because they've made more realistic changes to this game than on previous ones.
Alright, so in this installment of FIFA, they've made pretty drastic IMPROVEMENTS. The defending, AI, and even the way players first touch the ball are more real than ever.
The biggest change, and quite noticeable one in fact, is the attacking. The attacking in this game is spot on and fun to master.
In previous FIFA's, you were able to make breakaways and score shots by luck, simply by pressing through ball or lobbed through ball to give your striker(s) a huge lead.
In FIFA 14, you're rewarded with skill and timing. You have to consistently watch all your players and look for who can get past opposing defenders. The improvements in the attacking of this game is great.
In this game IT IS harder to score but that's how REAL soccer is. You will see Pro Clubs face one another and the score will be 1 - 2, or differentiate by 4 - 6 goals at most.
EA is doing really big things with FIFA, and they are continuing to make the franchise something more each time. People that can't stand the new mechanics most likely don't understand them, or appreciate them for what they are. So if you're hesitant to pick this game up, be sure to try the demo and you'll catch a glimpse of what I have said. Thanks for reading.
