FIFA 14 Preview | Gamereactor UK

GR-UK writes: "A few years ago I asked David Rutter, long-time producer of the FIFA series, how difficult it was to create a new game in the series every year, differentiating it from the previous ones. He replied that, indeed, it's a daunting task.

Still, the players around the world know very well how EA is able to resell the franchise every single year, by changing just enough to justify a full retail price. In short, every autumn FIFA is changed a little when compared to last year's version, and only in rare cases we've been witness to radical changes to the formula. The last big change came with FIFA 12, which introduced a new physics engine. FIFA 13 made a few small changes. And, apparently, FIFA 14 will also not be characterised by extreme transformations." (FIFA 14, Next-Gen, PC, PS Vita, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

LOL, their producer shows the people the gameplay and says wow every single time he shows something new? Haha, what is this subliminal massage so that the people go back to their sites and say wow to influence people to buy it again?

Pure shot? Gimmick
Shield the ball( didn't we have that past year?)
Robust scouting system(wow?)
Ball movement(really?)
Change direction fast when sprinting(ok that's very new?)
Few extra licenses, and over hyped game( worth $60)

Amazing really.

Konami, show them how a real football simulation is done with your fox engine powered PES 2014

Two things Fifa 14 needs.

1. Weather that changes throughout the game. (It would be lovely to start playing a game that’s slightly grey and overcast, then by the end the it’s raining cats and dogs)

2. Put an indication next to the players name of what their foot preference is (currently the name boxes at the bottom left and right of the screen also display the players number, why do I need to know that! Replace it with a L, an R, or a LR)

Good idea, especially in the lower leagues. Although I don't think you need to be told that Van Persie or Robben are left footed.

weather changes would be welcomed plus things like time wasting with a fake injury after a tackle(with complicated execution of course), cup final days or league title win could have a streaker on pitch for comedy value or pitch invasion when you get promoted.

I think also, annoying but how about the occasional linesman mistake with offsides. crowds need to be better looking, with flares being thrown onto pitch at a champions league game, theirs loads of stuff yet to be added to footie games, hope nxt gen brings some of these, the actual football mechanics in footie games now cant really get much better, just needs improvements in other areas imo.

My main thing would be can lower league teams not play like Barcelona in a cup tie on Legendary or World Class. It takes the mickey sometimes when Port Vale are passing it around on the ground like masters.

I usually buy every other year but I think I'll hold out one more year for the next gen
