Preview: FIFA 14 (This Is My Joystick)

There are three things in life that are absolute certainties: death, taxes and another annual FIFA instalment. So there were few surprises when EA announced FIFA 14 this week. Sure, EA are getting a lot of flak at the moment and another football sequel is never going to win them any new fans; but if we are all honest, it must be quite hard to re-package and improve what is essentially just a football game, and usually they do pull it off.

Apparently there are 65 million games of FIFA played each week, so they must be doing something right. A petition to EA recently called for FIFA 14 to feature female players, so it will be interesting to see if there is an official response now they are in full rebuilding image mode.

Couple of things I would like to see in the new fifa:

1. The manager patrolling the touchline, getting animated at decisions etc.
2. Dubious decisions - how many times in footy does something unfair happen? That's what makes a lot of the drama sometimes - a disallowed goal, offside wrongly given
3. Some sort of "rage meter", where you can dispute dodgy decisions - Not happy with the offside? pound the buttons but run the risk of a card
4. Rivalries with key players on teams

any thoughts??

I'd say there's plenty of dubious decisions in FIFA with teh refs now. Even some offsides look wrong.

They're getting there with the other stuff though. You at least see the manager on the sidelines now. And if you have kinect on, yelling at the ref for bad decisions, does do something. I don't think you can get a card just for yelling yet though.

I've honestly been happy with FIFA as a franchise. No game is ever perfect. You might not always notice a huge difference from the previous entry, but go back two years at any time and try the old FIFA's, the difference is unbearable.
