Say what you want about EA, it makes great games. There’s just no other way to put it. NHL 14 and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 both excelled over previous entries, but now that FIFA 14 has run onto the field, all of those fingers that got pointed at EA for being the worst company in the world earlier this year (and the year before), well, if you’re one of the finger pointers, you can point that finger right back at yourself, because you’re pretty silly.
After having the opportunity to watch Real Madrid take to the field in St. Louis a few months back, I think it’s understandable why I’ve been amped up to get my hands on this year’s FIFA title. It doesn’t disappoint either. This year’s FIFA doesn’t feature any ground-breaking new features or gameplay modes; instead, EA Canada has opted to refine, retune and further improve on all of the recent features that have made the series such a joy to play. The end result is a virtual game of soccer that actually feels like a game of soccer. [Review Score: 4.5/5 Stars]
