  • Protect The Ball – Dominate midfield and dictate the tempo of a match. Fend-off and block defenders from the ball while dribbling at any speed. Protect the ball from opponents to control play through midfield and dictate the pace of the match. Plus, out-muscle opponents for position before receiving the ball, then turn defenders to carve out opportunities.

Well-hit balls feel satisfying and goals are rewarding. As well as quality strikes, players can now shoot while off balance or rushed.

Realistic ball physics now determines the trajectories of balls in game, enabling players to strike the ball with force from distance, drill low rising shots with accuracy, and blast dipping or swerving shots, just like real soccer players.

Attacking players have new ways to outsmart their opponents and break down tighter, more intelligent defenses by creating space for themselves, running along the backline and checking their pace.

    If EA can improve on these To begin this review, I want to start off by saying, I loved FIFA 13.I know 13 had its own flaws, but I don’t think they were bad enough to break the flow of the game.I know people abused Pace. And I know it was a lot easier to dribble through defenders.But I think those are the only MAJOR flaws in FIFA 13.In FIFA 14….I will probably have to write a 10 page essayBut I will TRY to keep it short.I’ve been playing FIFA 14 since release. I pre-ordered.And also note, my review is 100% based on Ultimate Team Game Mode and in World Class difficulty level.This review is for PS3, don’t know if Xbox or the PC has the same issue.Here are the major flaw topics I will go over in this review:(Starting from the Worst Flaw in my opinion)- Defending- Player Switching (This is actually a close 1st)- Tackling- Passing- Attacking/Shooting- Player Physics/MomentumLet’s get started!!***Defending***As you move up in the difficulty level. (Especially, World Class and Above)You will notice the Opponent AI get outrageously overpowerd.While, your AI stays stupid, or even become more stupid. So *bleeping** stupid…I’m sure you guys have noticed in FIFA 14, once you reach World Class difficulty level,The attacking opponent AI will:1. Dribble right through your stupid defenders2. Make passes very very FAST to get passed your defenders3. Chip pass passed your defenders (Still overpowered after the Mid-October patch)4. Cross and score on your defenders, while they stand and stare.I don’t think there is anything I can do once the opponent attacker decides to score on you.Sometimes, I got scored on less than 5 in-game minutes into the game.Usually it goes like this. Opponent starts off with the ball.Passes to winger, winger dribbles up the field through all my defenders, chip pass or cross,and boom, scores.Then I wonder why I keep playing this game.Maybe in hopes that I can somehow figures out how to defend.And YES, I have spent countless hours tweaking with the “Custom Tactics” and it doesn’t help much.I remember in FIFA 13, my defenders being so much smarter.They’d pressure harder, keep with the ball/player and prevent/intercept passes.And a lot of time, they’d come out with the ball for me.In FIFA 14, I very rarely see an interception occur for my benefit.***Player Switching***I was going to add this to the defending section,But this is so incredibly bad, it deserved its own section.And also keep in mind, majority of my complaint for this flaw is during defending.ESPECIALLY on fast paced counter attacks from the opponent.I would lose the ball to the opponent defender, and they go on a “fast paced counter attack”Where the opponent attackers are passing or dribbling very fast up the field.In FIFA 13, when you pressed the player switch button, it would switch you to a defender that was in the best angle/position to make a tackle.In FIFA 14, it will switch you to the most random defender, clearly not in the best position/angle for making a tackle. So I have to switch a few more times to get the player I want.By the time you have switched to the player you want, the opponent has already made a pass to an open player or scored a goal already.This is really frustrating because when you are in a situation, right in front of your goal, you can’t afford the extra second trying to switch to the right player.***Tackling***Tackling is so difficult once you reach World Class.First off, it’s difficult to make a tackle in the first place because the opponent passes so well and fast.They complete almost every pass with pin point accuracy as my defenders jog around and watch.When I finally do make a tackle, the ball just rolls to another opposing player.This happens way too much to be a coincidence.Also, my players don’t chase after the ball after I make a tackle, they are frozen, as if they are surprised I made a tackle.And then finally, I would recover the ball from a tackle, but an opponent shows up out of nowhere to take the ball away again. It’s very fraustrating.The opponent’s tackle timing is unreal as well.Basically, once you cross the half into their territory, if you make a dribble that is a touch far from you, the opponent jumps right in front of you to take the ball, doesn’t miss a beat.***Passing***Passing is so bad in this game. Again, once your reach World Class, it’s even worse.Passing within your half is pretty easy.But after you’ve crossed into their half, the opponent is on you like a hawk.First, let me say, the through balls are so hard to complete.The opponent defenders are placed so well, they will…
