4.0 out of 5 stars Much improved from last gen and very realistic, 6 Jan. 2014

= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: FIFA 14 (PS4) (Video Game)
After owning Fifa 14 on Xbox 360 (possibly the worlds most frustrating game), I strongly considered not purchasing Fifa 14 on PS4. Luckily enough, I managed to have a quick game on Fifa 14 (PS4) in a Game store. After one short game, I notice little differences in the gameplay and found it much less frustrating, maybe this was just a one off good experience. Never the less I decided I could not get a PS4 without a football game. So after a few games on the PS4 version, I noticed some very good differences compared to the Xbox 360 version.

Firstly the graphics, what a fantastic improvement this is. On the 360, good graphics but too much blur and fuzzy pixels. With the PS4 version, the graphics are as smooth as you could ask for, no such blur or fuzziness and the whole picture looks fantastic, you could sometimes mistake the game for a real televised match. On that subject, the new presentation effect to the game is out of this world. There are now away ends/corners in stadiums, see your away fans jump for joy in the corner when you score and hear their cheer coming from the distance whilst the home fans around the stadium stay sat still and quiet. On the other hand, as the home team score, see the stadium erupt whilst again the small away corner take their turn to be quiet and still, complete with supporter shirts, scarfs and colours. As well as this, the game never stops, if the ball goes out of play, there are scenes which show the ball boy through the ball back, see an onfield player tap an extra ball on the field out of play, watch your players walk to the corner flag whilst the opposing goalkeeper arranges his defence. The feel to the game is fantastic, it really does make the whole thing feel a lot more real.

Now for the big improvement, whilst all the above is advertised by EA, for some reason they do not seem to have advertised the new gameplay from last gen what so ever. The improvement on gameplay is outstanding, gone has the frustration of Xbox 360/PS3 (almost). The game is so much more realistic, it is possible to make more chances rather than passing to the same 2 players in midfield all the time hoping to eventually break the line. The gameplay isn't perfect, there is still a little frustration with been pushed over trying to run onto a through ball or the goalkeeper evolving into Spiderman, but it is a huge step up from the last gen versions and overall makes for some outstanding gameplay and realism. The mechanics of the players again is very realistic, variable realistic kicking, control, heading etc. Through balls are a gem on this game and have a great feel of satisfaction when you pull a off a beauty goal from a fantastic team effort.

The whole game is outstanding, a must for any football fan without question. For those of you put off due to the dismal display of 360 and PS3 versions, don't be, this is entirely a new game. Great work EA.

Graphics - 9.5/10
Presentation - 9.5/10
Gameplay - 8.5/10
Overall - 9/10
