As an avid fan of all of the FIFA games over the years (including the world cup varieties and street), I've got to say that this game is great! What I enjoy the most about it is that it actually makes you play football! For too many seasons, it's been easy to pick up the ball with a midfielder, dance through the defence and blast in from 12 yards - but that's all changed!
A number of reviews here are complaining that the game is bad, that the passing and shooting is inaccurate, that legendary difficulty is too hard - probably all things that mean that you just need to work a bit harder to be good at it. Yes, it does mean you can't just pick up where you left off from '13 or '12 (so if you want something you'll be good at straight away then maybe rethink) - but it finally comes as a football game you need to play to get better, something you put time and effort in to get better at and ultimately should be more rewarding as such! After all, how many of you feel you've cheated when you play on amateur and win 27-0 against classic XI?
The game play is much better than before, gone are the days where you can simply pass through an entire defence, gone are the days where you can score from anywhere if you shoot early enough - this game actually starts to mimic what playing at a professional level is like and makes you play the game as if you're playing football.
On that note, I'd say well done to EA, but it's really about time they bring back the indoor arena from FIFA 98 - stuff of legends!
