About as next-gen as you could realistically expect.
on 22 March 2014
A few weeks ago my PS3 gave up on me after 6 years of impeccable service! This Friday just gone my PS4 bundle arrived with Infamous: Second Son & as a life-long football sims fanatic, FIFA 14 was always going to be a day one purchase for me. Despite only being 24 hours into my PS4 life I must say that so far I have been very impressed.
Straight away the in game menus seem sleek and much more responsive. Loading times are noticeably faster than on the PS3 as you'd expect. As for the graphics, just wow! The crowd improvements are most impressive, every goal is greeted with a realistic reaction from the home or away supporters. I scored a goal with Milan away to Barcelona and the celebration scene cut to a section of Milan fans high up in th Nou Camp going crazy, very authentic.
As for the gameplay, by no means revolutionary changes from its PS3 incarnation but certainly an improvement. Player reactions seem a bit more real and the games tend to be a bit more fluid. Online so far also seems very smooth.
The lack of any real ground breaking improvements or additons to the game coupled with the fact that in 6 months I have had to shell out £80+ on FIFA games prevents it from getting a 5 star.
Its a great platform for EA to build on for FIFA 15. The power in the PS4 is clearly there and lets see if the games developers can do the hardware justice!
