    FIFA 14 is far from a revolutionary release, and it's arguably inferior to the much improved PES 2014 in terms of pure footballing gameplay. That said, FIFA 14 is the most complete virtual footballing experience available today. Whether in single or multiplayer, there's enough to keep fans busy well into the new football season and beyond.

    FIFA 14 is a beautiful send-off to the waning current generation of gaming, and a perfect example of what has become the most authentic and entertaining sports game around.

    For once, FIFA 14 could divide its fan base. Being more and more realistic, the game becomes more and more demanding. Don't misunderstand us: this is the main reason why FIFA 14 is better than FIFA 13. Passing the ball, building your chances: that's what this new FIFA is about. And exceptional players are only a solution if you make them play for the team. With the new features in Career Mode and the release of a 2-players Seasons Mode, it's certainly the best FIFA ever, and the best football game for now.

    Electronic Arts keeps polishing the best soccer game on the planet: FIFA 14 is a predictable but outstanding achievement. Its matches show a thoughtful pace and the new ball protection mechanics fit perfectly in the formula. Simply put it's a must buy for every soccer enthusiast out there.

    (platform: PS3)
    This is the best version so far, but also the less innovative. It feels like EA Sports is absolutely focused on next gen consoles, so there are few additions here. However, it is as fun as always, and the best football simulator this year for current consoles.

    Electronic Arts once again offers the best gaming experience for all lovers of football. FIFA 14 isn't a major landmark for the series in terms of innovation, but the changes have such a significant effect on physic and gameplay.

    FIFA 14 may seem like the same old song and dance on the surface, but once you get into the game you'll appreciate what the developer has done to enhance the overall quality, even if the glitz and glamour suffers a bit by not advancing along the same path as the improved controls.

    FIFA 14 on the PS3 is brilliant. However, I can't help but feel that there is more coming to those looking at buying the next-gen consoles.

    Some minor visual issues aside, EA came, saw and emerged victorious: FIFA 14 improves on a number of key features and establishes itself again as the best soccer game out there.

    Although many users begin to request more, FIFA 14 is still a spectacular soccer game that we effusively recommend.

    FIFA 14 is the best title in the franchise so far. As the icing of the cake for a project that started alongside this console generation, this last installment revamps certain playability and technical issues, which makes it the best FIFA title in the last few years.

    Playstation Official Magazine UK

    (platform: PS3)
    Gameplay is the best it's been on PS3, and presentation is improved, too, with Jeff Stelling's pre-match, half-time and post-match links upping the broadcast feel yet again. Whatever your thoughts on annual sports games, you really mustn't miss this one unless you want to spend the next nine months feeling like a defeated play-off finalist.

    Thanks to the gameplay changes alone, FIFA 14 is an essential purchase for any football gaming fan. It feels so different that it may even gain back long-term fans lost along the way, though there's also a risk that EA Sports might lose a few for the same reasons.

    FIFA 14 confirms itself as the best football sim around. A great and improved gameplay and many play modes make it a worthwhile buy on Xbox 360 even with the next-gen version looming.

    On paper, the changes might sound subtle, on the pitch though, they really influence your way of play. FIFA 14 wants you to play clever, and the AI, refined controls, better ball physics and richer animation all work in support of that.

    Konami's Fox Engine is not enough to beat Electronic Arts' gigantic production. Even this year FIFA features solid gameplay, great graphics and much of the usual content that proves to be incredibly satisfying.

    FIFA 14 represents a difficult step forward for a very popular franchise, but a successful one nonetheless. The changes have such a significant effect, that returning fans may find them off-putting through the first five to ten games. But those that embrace them will be rewarded with perhaps the most satisfying, engaging FIFA yet.

    14 is very good. It feels different, and while it may not necessarily be superior, it easily matches its predecessor's quality.

    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.
  • 88

    Game Informer

    (platform: PS3)
    The kinds of shots players get off are varied due to how they strike the ball (and with which foot), and the controls hit a sweet spot of being easy to pull off and capable of letting you engineer some incisive attacks. These aspects are not to be underestimated, as they give you confidence going forward and the ability to score from some new areas.

    FIFA 14 takes yet another step towards being an even better football simulation than its predecessor. Small but considerate improvements like Precision Movement and advanced physics secure the sports game throne for FIFA for another year.

    FIFA 14 takes some risks with new improvements and new situations that offers more realism in general. Although the game isn't as fluid as its predecessor in some moments. Incredible in presentation and licenses.

    While I have mixed feelings about EA's perch on this lucrative pedestal, it's hard to to argue that the EA Canada team hasn't earned it, and doesn't continue to earn it, by delivering a game that really does feel better, really does feel different, every year, even if you have to be an avid player of the game to really appreciate how.

    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 still is a very good, very complete soccer game. And whilst the tweaks, changes and additions to the core mechanics are well executed, overall the progress made is smaller than last year.

    FIFA 14 has a lot of new elements, but unfortunately the most prominent new elements aren't executed flawlessly. This makes FIFA 14 a very enjoyable soccer experience, but with bizarre situations arising from time to time that mess things up quite a bit. The new additions to FIFA Ultimate Team are successful though.

    FIFA 14 has dragged the franchise out of videogame purgatory and injected character back into it with some significant gameplay improvements. AI oddities and a poor interface fail to mar a genuinely rewarding and enjoyable football experience.

    FIFA 14 is unmistakably the best footie for the current-gen consoles to date. It feels both realistic and authentic and pays homage to The Beautiful Game we have grown to love. It's just too bad the graphics of the game can't keep up with the gameplay anymore; but our educated guess is that next-gen will change that entirely.

    I'm not sure if it's the best game in the series, but it kept me playing for hours on end, and that's enough for me. The visual and audio competence supported by the rock-solid gameplay is a winning combination, and just goes to show how much EA has perfected the major-league game formula.

    FIFA 14 does a terrific job of differentiating levels of soccer competition around the world, which is rare. But there are so many different modes of play that players of just about any skill level or familiarity can hop into FIFA 14.

    Gamer.nl

    (platform: PS3)
    Every year it becomes a predictable conclusion, but FIFA 14 earns the description as the ultimate soccer game. EA Sports created a dynamic, unpredictable and enervating soccer experience. The same can't be said for the visuals, which feel dated and cold. The lack of new modes and small annoyances which have persisted throughout the years are things we'll let slip, but the need for next-gen is large.

    GameSpot

    (platform: PS3)
    Despite the lack of a defining new feature to attach itself to, FIFA 14 is far more than the sum of its parts. It's a fundamentally different experience to last year's game, and an entertaining one at that, moving the series ever closer to the realism it so proudly strives for. The only competition FIFA has this year is itself.

    The fact a project of this thundering size gets finished at all – let alone once every 12 months – is of course a minor miracle of hard work and management, but it can only be lauded for greatness if that's what it's reaching for. FIFA 14 seems content with better rather than best.

    This is the essence of FIFA 14 – a great package but a hefty sidestep, rather than a leap, as some of its predecessors were. The menus are fantastically designed, accessible and simple, which isn't a mean feat considering the sheer amount of different modes and ways to play, and make it seem a shinier, fresher product than it is.

    A slight improvement of the current engine again makes an excellent virtual football game out of FIFA 14, putting at the game's forefront its atmosphere, accessibility, and wide gameplay variability, especially in its multiplayer game.

    Gamer.no

    (platform: 360)
    With an increased focus on realistic movement, FIFA 14 takes a step away from the fast paced, easy accessible gameplay that has defined the series for years. It's a harder game to get into, but way more fun when you actually do. Some slight issues with the AI is annoying, but FIFA 14 is still a guarantee for hours of football fun.

    Guardian

    (platform: 360)
    The game's difference-maker is entirely on the pitch – that new movement system. In multiplayer especially, where the absence of an all-knowing AI sees imperfect humans make repeated mistakes, it leads to slightly clumsier, boggier, slower matches. All the same, the change is only incremental, and doesn't ruin the game by any means.

    FIFA 14 is the same, fundamentally great game that FIFA 13 was before it. Hard-core fans of the series will doubtlessly enjoy the latest instalment, but casual gamers who picked up last year's won't miss much by sitting this one out. There is, after all, a next-generation FIFA game to look forward to.

    GameTrailers

    (platform: 360)
    Rather than aim toward a mass-market audience with an arcade approach, the developers have slowed the game down and required more finesse and skill out of players. Though still lacking in some areas, it is nonetheless an improved version of its predecessor with all of its strengths and fewer of its weaknesses.

    (platform: 360)
    There's no doubting that FIFA 14 is an improvement over last year's version, but that improvement is very slight and those who aren't ardent FIFA fans would probably never notice the differences. Having already played the next-gen version – with the new Ignite engine – I'd have to say you're probably best off waiting. That one at least feels and looks like a different game, this one does not. Still, FIFA 14 is as great as ever.

    FIFA 14 is a fun game and will appeal to football fans as the classic style of gameplay, aside from the frenetic tempo of the matches, largely remain and snatching victory from the jaws of defeat still tastes as sweet as ever; it's just a shame that it all feels so familiar.

    FIFA 14 requires more patience than most of its predecessors, and even when your patience is rewarded, it often feels like it's flattering to deceive. Slow and stodgy in midfield but dynamic and physical at either end of the pitch, it's possible that some might think this the best FIFA ever--but you'd be splitting hairs, not defences.

    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.

    I think EA needs to go back to the drawing board on its interpretation of unpredictability's role in sports games, because while it might make the game look more realistic to watch, it makes it feel frustrating to play.
