Straight off the box, you
know you have a winner in your hands. FIFA, in all these years has deservedly earned for itself a big fan-following. With FIFA 14, you'll have to
marginally adapt to a new style of play. FIFA 14's new movement system, slower
pace and focus on the midfield means that matches
can no longer be bounced from one end of the pitch to the other, thereby preventing a few cheap goals. There is a new feature for all those who like a rough tackle or a
little nudging of the elbow called 'Protect the Ball'. It requires players to use their
physical strength to fight for or maintain possession of the ball. The step-based system synchronises well with the all new ball physics in this game, allowing for some spectacular action from curled lace shots to goal-dipping half-volleys. Shooting feels better than ever, and when the perfect shot comes off, you feel like a pleased manager of the club, cheering on the team.
FIFA 14's a great game with stunning presentation and attention to detail. The more convinc
ing sense of physicality and
a ludicrously large number of game modes may require you to be a little more patient with FIFA14, but that patience is amply rewarded.
