"The first word that comes to mind when describing FIFA 14 is "shiny"; that is, not particularly 'polished.' The whole theme this year seems to be 'Look at me, I’m adorable. I can do flips and kicks and all the above.' There are features, upon features, on top of features. That might sound like a bad thing, and in a sense, it is. To what extent do endless possibilities and variations help make the core game better? And at what point do they become a distraction instead?"
