Honest review......Worst Fifa to date
on 14 February 2014
Would of given it 0 stars if i could, how can people rate this any higher than 1 is beyond me.
The game is terrible compared to other fifas, i just hope that pro evo comes out with something special like the old days this year that will put the fifa games into the bargain basket.
It would seem that ea sports have the lions share of the market so have decided to become lazy and just copy and paste from year to year without listening to the people that actually buy and play there games.
First of all heres a few things i remembered from a few games i had last night before turning the my PS4 of before it went out the window.
Glitches- I have noticed some of the goal celebrations are glitchy, i like to celebrate my goals with the sliding on knees beating the chest celebration but now it would seem i slide on my knees then fall flat on my face... not part of the celebration it seems like a glitch were another player should slide behind me and grab hold and pin down on the floor and celebrate with you...cant believe this hasnt been fixed with an update.
The typical scripted fifa rubbish- basically when the computer wants to score IT WILL SCORE, if the computer doesnt want you to score YOU WONT SCORE!
Heard a saying the other day, someone said they would rather give a penalty than a corner on fifa and its true. you have more chance of them missing a penalty than missing a header from a corner, Fifa 14 all seems scripted.... they attack down the wing put a cross in and no matter how many of your players you have in the box 1 attacker will leap above 4 of your defenders from 16 yards out and score!!
Tackles- yesterday in one game before half time i picked up 2 yellows and a red without making 1 slide tackle, i have had yellows without even pressing the circle tackle button just by running towards the ball and accidently touching the other player... the slightest knock and the ref will blow making the game stop and start every 2 mins. on the subject of tackles as well it would seem that even if you can tackle a player without giving away a freekick the ball just wonders to another one of there players 4 times in a row i made a tackle for it to roll through to another of there players.
Stats of players mean nothing- Playing with real madrid in a league match against some bottom of the league team i have never heard of and there players will match yours for power and speed?!?!.... i mean c ronaldo has to be the fastest player on the game yet try making a run down the wing and you will be easily chased, caught and then tackled by some player ranked about 63 against a winger ( the best player in the world) who is ranked 92..... but thats just Fifa i remember last fifa playing as arsenal and walcott would glide down the wing at full speed to easily be caught up by jamie carragher!!... UNLESSS of course if its the other way round...if the comp is running down the wing and your giving chase just give up hope of catching regardless of player.... if carragher took of at full speed down the wing you as ronaldo would be left well behind.
Offside- what the hell has happened here? it now blows for offside before the ball has even reached you. old fifas the linesman would wait for you to touch it before flagging and the ref giving offside now its a soon as the ball is played the ref blows for offside, gone are the days when you could hold R2 and L2 and dont interfere with play and let the ball run on to someone making a run from an onside posistion... Terrible!!
Passing- seems you can point towards a player press x to pass and it ends up going in the completly different direction or will be extremly overhit into the crowd from a simple pass. BUT when the computer ends up clearing a corner towards the half way line with a big hoooffffff... boom...directly to the feet of there player who is waiting for it...every dam time
scoring- this has become near enough pure luck if you manage to score now.... common are the games were the stats read 18 shots at goal 14 on target score 0-0.... had around 6 1v1 with the keepers, hold the finesse button to hit it over or straight down the middle into keepers arms?!?!... i hit the bar 3 times from my first 4 shots... 1 time it hit the bar came down to ronaldo who put the header over the bar from 6 yards..... 89 mins into the game and bang the comp kicks you while trying to shoot inside the box and ref blows for a penalty.... comp 1 shot 1 goal in the entire game...
Online play- dont even bother with this option, has to be some of the worst servers i have ever played on...laggy and unstable... recieve the ball look up press pass...sounds simple, not online. you recieve the ball then for some reason have to take around 5 touches even though you have pressed pass before recieving the ball in the fitst place!
Waste of money... but its the only football game out on the ps4 at the moment....broken glitchy lazy game hence why people are flogging this on facebok or gumtree for £20 to get rid of it, several of my mates have already sold it for tomb raider, dont blame them.... if you are looking at it thinking i might get it then dont...AVOID AT ALL COSTS!
