Summary: Compared to the PS3 and Xbox 360 release, FIFA on the PlayStation 4 is a whole new ball game and even though EA have tweaked some of the gameplay modes, it is for the better and this version is definitely superior in terms of gameplay, controls and graphics.
Conclusion: FIFA 14 exudes polish from every pore. It’s a great all-rounder, able to entertain players of all abilities. Until Battlefield fixes its problems, there isn’t a better multiplayer game on PS4 either. Sports fan or no, there aren’t many more complete games you can pick up this launch window.
Summary: It’s been five games since I’ve spent any significant time with FIFA, and whilst there are some noticeable improvements, many of the most glaring issues from previous games still stick out whatever generation you play on.
Summary: It’s a shame that some modes haven’t made the cut for the next-gen version, but you’ll only miss them if you played them a lot. Career Mode and FUT still offer incredibly high value for money, and this is probably the best version of FIFA to date.
Excerpt: Rebuilt for next-gen using the new Ignite Engine, FIFA 14 doesn’t look drastically different from current-gen. Put a controller in your hands, however, and the changes are surprisingly significant.
Conclusion: Overall, if you have a next generation console and you are a FIFA fan, buying this game should be a no-brainer. The visuals are amazing, the AI seemed to perform better and making the switch between last gen and current gen couldn’t have been easier.
Pros: +Amazing Visual Update, +Easy to Transition to
Conclusion: Is it truly "next-gen"? No. Still, it's good enough to satisfy your football needs for another season. Unlike what happened in the last generation, which EA Sports debuted with FIFA 06 on Xbox 360 (a horrible version of the game with mediocre gameplay and a insulting lack of content) FIFA 14 is, for...
Pros: Refined gameplay. It is graphically superior. Various new animations and details.
Cons: It's still not true "next-gen". Some content is absent, like the Tournaments and the Creation Center.
