FIFA 14 Xbox 360

Your comments on our articles.

The beautiful game wants you to put your thinking cap on

Firing up FIFA 14 as a FIFA veteran is like being a big-name signing at a brand new club. You already know you're good at the game, but you'll have to adapt to the culture and acclimatise yourself to a new style of play if your success is going to continue. That's because FIFA 14 is a significant departure from predecessors - more of a simulation than a fantasy, sporting a big thick moustache of maturity.... read more

FIFA 14 Xbox 360

So, where's the PES 2014 review? It's been on sale since last week. FIFA isn't even out yet & it gets all the publicity. All I've seen on Xbox home for the last week are ads for FIFA while PES doesn't even get a mention, not even when they released the demo.
Fail.

Not only was PES on the dashboard, but OXM also announced the demo in the same article as the announcement for FIFA. So, well done.

I can't wait for FIFA 14, it's going to be really good, best one yet probably by far, It's a lot slower paced than any of the others. Some people are moaning about it being slower paced, I don't really get why when it's slower paced you have to think about how you're going to play the ball and get the timings right. On this one you can't just sprint past the players like on FIFA 13, I don't think it's going to be a harder game than FIFA 13, Just a change of style so you can get used to it.

[ P.S I personally think PES isn't that good, and whining about it not being on adverts isn't going to change it

So PES gets a mention, terrific. I never saw it on the dashboard, even on the day the demo was released, had to search for it. Still doesn't answer my question as to why there's no review.

Hey carlboy,

Sorry for the delay on the PES review. It should have been up last week in time for the embargo, but we've got a lot on our plate - we're in the process of redesigning the mag and site for the Xbox One's launch.

Well that's certainly an incentive. "Make the magazine look pretty or I'll strap myself to a bomb and scar you for life!" I hope Jonty isn't taking notes.

Is the site change a major overhaul or just some little changes that signify the arrival of the Uno?

Speaking of such things, any idea when the first reviews for next gen games will turn up? Do you expect to be doing them before launch? What about cross gen games like AC4, that's out about 3 weeks before the next gen version, will that be getting 2 separate reviews? I actually think that could be really cool if the same person plays the game twice on both consoles and reviews them both so we can get a better idea of the differences.

What i cant understand is why non of the reviews, failed to mention that there is no Team Play in Fifa 14 i.e no 2v2 (unless you have a guest on 2nd controller) 5v5 or 11v11? There is a huge community that have clubs and base their entire fifa experience around team play games? no one has mentioned this, and i think a lot of people if the reviews had been 100% accurate would have decided against buying the game. I think Fifa has cheated so many fan'sánd should have been up front about this. I have a friend in italy, who moved there recently, and playing 2v2 was a way we could always catch up online having a bit of fun - now thanks to FiFA, we lost one of the best features this game had!! Why Why Why????

The first thing about the DEMO is the pitch looks like a snooker surface rather than a football pitch, almost too perfect. Also I found the ball was bouncing too much. I am playing FIFA 12 at the moment and cant believe the ridiculous pace of the ball sometimes. Suddenly a winger crosses it at 400 mph and its in the back of the net before you have blinked. So, Im very happy its slowed down because that's more realistic, which is surely what we want ?

This Sounds Great, I'm looking forward to playing FIFA 14 because it is exactly the way that I currently play.
Passing is the essence of the game ... Pace can help in short bursts so to speak but in reality there are only a few players who know how to use it in the real thing.
So Yes Thumbs up from me.
Possession is 90% of the Law ! :D
