One of most anticipated releases of the year (there was a little something called Grand Theft Auto V also out this month) FIFA 14 has finally hit shelves, and made a host of football and game fans very happy.
FIFA 14 - released on eight different formats - is more realistic than its predecessor, ironically with a move away from ‘the beautiful game’.
The days of a 50 yard run with an easy cross over and goal is finished, with a more realistic approach adopted, more notably with the ball control.
It has become very similar to the way the premier league has become with unpredictability and a more intense action packed final third of the game, which was lacking in the previous FIFA.
The graphics are phenomenal, capturing real life resemblance of players and officials.
Detail gone into perfecting the stadiums and seasonal conditions have helped bring reality into the game, and there are a number of different features including the protect the ball feature, which allows you to fend off opponents, and a second chance tackle, which gives defenders another chance to win the ball while lying on the ground if their initial attempt is unsuccessful.
With online gaming options drastically improving, additional gameplay options have helped bring FIFA into a new era.
FIFA 13 was one of the best sellers of last year, but the mountain of a task to improve the game has been a successful one.
