1.0 out of 5 stars Gameplay fix, 3 Jan. 2014
This review is from: FIFA 14 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
This review is most specifically for the career mode aspect of the game as previous reviews have covered all of the server crashes and errors when playing online, so i wont bother mentioning them.

The game mechanics themselves are a step forward, but what's the point when the game makes it blatantly obvious the matches are scripted (the result is decided before the game even starts) ? Here's what I did to test this theory, i went on to career mode with a team full of 99 Overall custom made players, i chose the semi-pro difficulty (which, with the team i had, should be a cake walk) and after dominating matches and scoring god knows how many goals, the game suddenly goes out of its way to make it impossible for you to even run with the ball, the game reaches a certain point where regardless of what difficulty you picked, it will automatically boost the difficulty so the CPU wins.
The way it does this is even more infuriating, the game misreads what commands you tell the player to do resulting in your player 'accidentally' giving the ball away or putting it in your own net, the defense of the CPU becomes the equivalent of world class/legendary difficulty defending and players from lower leagues score against my 99 overall goalkeeper from as far as the halfway line sometimes.
The gameplay is certainly a step up, or atleast the attempt to make gameplay better; every player sprints like they have smashed kneecaps and the affore mentioned misreading of commands leads to mistakes that you KNOW you didnt do but the game does it for you anyway.
Overall if you want to waste your money, go ahead and buy it, but keep in mind that if you're really good at this game (which i am, i merely made all my players so over-powered to prove a point) then you're skills will not be rewarded on career mode as the game decides what you do anyway.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't listen to the childish reviewers below., 16 Oct. 2013
Okay, its all personal preference and what not, but they didn't hold any arguments, and therefore taking their advice and not buying this show would be a very silly move on your part.
Without spoiling the show, the story revolves around a young boy who is trapped inside of an online multiplayer game with his only means of escape being to essentially 'beat the game', it has romance, action, super funny scenes and memorable characters and is easily going to be a no-brainer purchase for those who have kept up with this series, this particular item is the blu-ray version, meaning the animation looks more crisp, colourful and generally of better quality, yes, the price may seem a bit high, but if your paying for these as they are released, then you have to save up £19 every other month for the next volume, which im sure even a five year old who wants everything they see can accomplish.
Personally, i think this is great value considering prices overseas are almost ludicrous for an animated series of anything! And i recommend this for people who want to see what popular anime is like nowadays, if you want to try before you buy, CrunchyRoll and other streaming websites have this series, enjoy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pure insanity., 6 Oct. 2013
Okay, this review is not about the series itself, the series is a fantastic piece of work and deserves all the attention today that it did when it was first released in '83, the review is about its price, and although i'm aware i'm going to have to sell a kidney to complete this series, £400+ is ridiculous!

Okay, so here's what happened, volumes 1-10 sold really poorly in the US and therefore vol 11 and 12 were kind of half assed when it came to production, presumably to get the series out there without losing any more money, due to this, you are more likely to find unicorn poop than you are to find either of them for less than £100, looking around on other websites, this particular DVD goes for around £160-£250 (in dollars, as they are american websites)and although the price for a DVD is still stupid, it begs the question as to why somebody would think that £400 ($640) is a reasonable price when every other seller is selling it for around $300 (£190) cheaper, re-sellers are a greedy cancerous scum and to be very honest, i'm looking to complete this collection by any means necessary, but i would not pay more than £250 (not that paying £250 in the first place is an idea i'm okay with, i can hear my wallet weeping)
