Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Once the game is launched, seasoned players will no doubt feel a bit of deja vu. At first glance, FIFA 14 doesn't look, sound, or play much differently than last year's game...or the game before that. But after a couple of minutes of play, you'll begin to appreciate the refinements made to the control, physics, and artificial intelligence as well as a few visual tweaks, including smoother animation and overhauled menu screens. The gameplay still feels tight and responsive.

Overall, it's a slightly slower-paced game that feels like a controlled simulation more than a twitchy arcade game -- which is a good thing -- and once you master some of the offensive and defensive moves, play around with the many modes, and perhaps engage in the optional online Football Club, you'll no doubt like what EA Sports has offered in this year's game.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
