2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil (for PlayStation 3)
11 July 2014
Conclusion: This "Brazilified" version of FIFA 14 captures the spirit of the World Cup with a new presentation style, team rosters, and game modes. Soccer (ahem, "football") enthusiasts will enjoy total immersion in this year's World Cup events, but next-gen console gamers are left out.
Pros: Captures the spirit of the Brazilian World Cup. New dribbling system adds flexibility. Exciting challenges based on real-world events from this year's World Cup.
Cons: Frustrating new passing system. Only available on Xbox 360 and PS3—a step down for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players.
Family-friendly soccer simulation captures thrill of FIFA.

Summary: Parents need to know EA Sports' 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil is a family-friendly soccer simulation based on the 2014 World Cup games that features digital versions of real soccer stars. There is little in the way of content that should concern parents, but be aware of strong consumerism (corporate branding). Keep in mind, too, that players who engage in online games can chat with strangers without any monitoring or filtering.
Excerpt: Initially, I had an internal debate over how to write this review. I have to admit, I was tempted to write it backwards. After playing FIFA 14 on the PS4 since launch, going back to the PS3 graphics and framerate issues was hard to take at first. But the longer I played, the more I noticed series plaguing problems that had clearly been fixed on the next gen version began to once more rear their ugly heads.
Excerpt: Every four years or so EA gets to really take advantage (i.e. hose gamers) with their FIFA license and release multiple $60 soccer games. Normally we see the annual FIFA release (clubs and select national teams), and the World Cup edition every 4 years (just national teams with World Cup graphics). Once in awhile we get fun titles like FIFA Street.
Excerpt: Soccer or Futbol? My brother grew up playing soccer in its heyday as an “everyone wins” support sport, an exercise in teaching equality over competition, teamwork over individuality. The idea was practice, practice, practice , and everyone gets an orange slice at half time, but I think without playing the game myself I missed out on something fundamental in its rules and mechanics.
