Score goals?
Memoman  +   482d ago
I've played so many FIFA 14 games with my brother and the AI seems to be worse than FIFA 13, it's ridiculous. Also the rubber banding and cheating is so clumsily scripted that it is just downright infuriating. 99% percent of goals we've received come from a play when suddenly the AI team turns into Barcelona made of Hulks and score. Right on the 45 minute mark just before the break with their only shot (even chance) on goal. Laughable.

Also players are skating on ice, you end up running laps around players when trying to mark or when changing to a player that was previously moving to another direction. They also do a Scooby Doo running start thing whenever they want to run, it takes them hours to take off and get some speed, or when trying to pass or shoot, they need hours and kilometers to adjust their targeting or who knows what... it's too much really; it breaks the flow of play.

The refereeing is also worse than last year's. Every random inertia collision you make ends up in a foul and a card, while you get pummeled and even swept under without the referee batting and eyelash. And the fucking advantage play is just a "second chance" free card for the computer, it lasts forever and comes out of nowhere. So bad.

I like to play a co-op career, as I've been doing for years now, but this time it's just painful. Maybe the offline co-op career has been nerfed so much so that people only play on-line, maybe it's their business model, but this game is hilariously bad at masking it's robotic AI, so much bumping and crashing and League 2 teams playing like Barca. What a fucking joke.

PES 2014 releases a fucking uncooked beta and FIFA 14 the laziest, untested, piece of crap port they've released in years. Football games really need some fresh competition because both established franchises are stale and reek of dead.

100%. The amount of scripting that is happening in FIFA 14 is simply irritating. On ultimate team, I go through patches of five wins and five losses with virtually no exceptions. Despite having the same keeper, one keeper will be unstoppable while the other has butterfingers. Despite having the same striker, one striker scores on every shot while the other finds the car park. Despite having the same defenders, one is capable of obtaining possession while the others get bulldozed by weaker footballers.

The amount of times a defender has stopped still instead of moving to intercept a pass or chase a runner, or when a rebound falls directly at the opponent's feet, is too much to bear. It has happened in my favour and against me. It happens far too much, and the boost far too powerful, to be coincidence.

I have to say, this is going to be my last FIFA for a while.
