FIFA 14 Review: Become a Manager of your Football Team
FIFA 14 is a football simulator from EA Sports. This game is one of the many parts of the FIFA series. Released in 2014, this game won many football fans. At the moment you can download FIFA 14 to your personal computer, PS3 and Xbox 360.
Graphics — 3.5/5
If you compare the graphics FIFA 14 with more modern versions can not boast of ultra-clear graphics and great animation. The characters are simple, and the screensavers are a bit blurry. But it is worth noting that the animation of the players is much better than in FIFA 13, whereas before the run animation was interrupted and turned into a beat animation with a pause, then in FIFA 14, running smoothly turns into a ball kick.
It is worth noting that the players now do not run around the field like skaters, and also improved physics appeared. In FIFA 14, the ball has become much harder, so it became much easier and easier for a player to feel the dribble of a ball by a football player.
Gameplay — 4/5
The gameplay repeats the previous games in the series. In the game there are quick matches against the AI of the computer, it is suitable for those who want to have fun for a minimum of time. There is also an offline career coach. In this mode, you can lead to a real football club championship, or you created it from scratch.
There are friendly matches where you can invite a friend to play together. Also in the game were online seasons, but due to the small number of players online, EA Sports decided to close the FIFA 14 server in 2017.
Controls — 4.5/5
The game features a convenient player control system using a joystick on the console and a keyboard and mouse on a personal computer. Localization of the control is made specifically for each of the platforms.
Replay Value — 4.5/5
Judging by the reviews, FIFA 14 is very keen on its replayability. Nice physics, simple graphics, a sense of involvement in matches. All this allows you to spend a long time in the game.
An interesting game focused not on the speed of reaction of the gamer and the skills of individual players, but on tactical thinking and team play. The developers do not experiment with the gameplay, but the career mode and beautiful feints and celebrations of the heads are improved. FIFA 14 is convenient, fast, colorful, spectacular and large-scale, but, unfortunately, still not deep enough.
- Encouraging online career growth
- Developing Ultimate Team
- Improved animation.
- Uncontrolled shots
- Feints play too much importance
- Too few changes.
