Summary: I am not impressed at all. Online play is terrible. Sometimes my players automatically do things. Like just kick the ball away when on a fast break even though i am just running with the ball. EA needs to do a better job.
Been with the series since '98, this is a mediocre effort

Summary: Pros: Full licensing Lots of modes to play Skill games are fun and new Cons: FULL of glitches/bugs First-touch addition is bad Online play is tedious Easy to lose to cheap tactics I've been with the series since FIFA '98. Anyone remember the indoor mode in that game? That was awesome. This year's showing is mediocre at best. Since the "pros" listed here are basic, I won't discuss them as they should be included in every game.
Summary: This is more of an initial complaint rather than a review, the reason being is that aspects of the game do not function properly. I played one v one games against a friend, problem free and we enjoyed the matches fully. Played career mode and in the second season a significant error occurred - THE BALL WAS INVISIBLE - now, I'm not one to complain often but unless I've completely lost the plot; I believe the ball and its whereabouts during a game are quite important.
Summary: I purchased this game for my son. Whilst the graphics and gameplay are good, the reason I got this game was for the Fifa points. We haven't been able to use them for love nor money, I am struggling to communicate with EA SPORTS in an attempt to remedy the situation, and now I see they are pushing on with FIFA 14!!! Annoying!
Conclusion: The latest iteration of FIFA at first glance appears to be a good game, with a raft of upgraded modes and options. However, dig a little deeper and its many problems soon become apparent. From servers that keep kicking you off, to crazy collisions, invisible balls and walls, the game is plagued with problems.
Conclusion: What can i say the game play look good and i class myself as a good games player.This fifa is a big let down 1st you play the single player and the games are so hard from basic to legend its still hard to play your clear on goal and from know were there is 2 or 3 defenders on you, have they got bionic legs.Just to try something i went into creator a player and made a whole team of top level players all with super sprint, guess what clear on goal and from know were 2 or 3...
Conclusion: Like the title suggests this game caused me to swear a great deal, im not normally one to review games movies etc byt i felt obliged to this time around. For starters i've never played PES im a FIFA man or at least i was, this game was great the ai was smarter the likenesses were a bit better the manager mode had improved every thing was dandy that is until i tried to start a second season and the game completely froze, at first i just thought that was weird and...
Conclusion: Okay, so the menu's are 10 times better and there is a lot to do. Then you play online. Anything you thought you liked about football literally flys out the window. People have become apparent to the 4-3-2-1 formation. Which means sit back as far as they can get, press R1 and make the computer do all the work. Get the ball, and have 3 attackers vs your few defenders because the computer likes sending the wing backs to go walkies. This happens, over and over again.
