It’s almost a guarantee that with every new console launch, a version of EA Sports’ FIFA series will be found among the initial software line-up. Traditionally these launch iterations of FIFA are shallow husks of the prior ‘last-gen’ release, admirably built from the ground up but ultimately rushed to make tight deadlines. They’re usually devoid of series-established features, riddled with bugs, and are generally sloppy in production.
Change is upon us, however; as for the PS4 and Xbox One, EA have brought us a FIFA that not only matches the depth and feature set of the previous generation’s, but just about surpasses it in gameplay too.
Although built on EA’s new Ignite engine, FIFA 14 on next-gen consoles plays very similarly to what you may have already experienced on 360/PS3.
