The World Cup is the largest sport-related occasion on this planet and EA Sports activities couldn’t cross the chance to launch a model new online game to get you within the temper.

easports2014fifaworldcupbrazil_xbox360_ps3_england_vs_italy_header_wmA brand new characteristic is Captain Your Nation, this includes selecting a participant that you just suppose can take your crew all the way in which to glory.

In comparison with FIFA 14, the sport favors the attacking sides and particularly gamers who’re capable of ship bursts of velocity after which a well-placed shot on aim.


Lengthy-range efforts appear to be going into the web greater than they did earlier than and lots of matches tend to finish with plenty of scored objectives. This is sensible contemplating that the World Cup is seen as a showcase of one of the best groups on this planet, however in actual life, managers are usually a little bit extra conservative and use stable defensive setups, which is difficult to do in 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil.

So has it been improved in comparison with the earlier title, FIFA 14? in a nutshell sure, on the subject of the way in which defenders cope with lobbed balls and long-range crosses, however plainly the EA Sports activities crew desires players to attain quite a bit, execute as many celebrations as attainable and usually expertise a fantastic massive spectacle than slog by very tactics-heavy matches.


There are many game-modes to make sure that this can be a recreation you may play for a very long time. To begin, you may play a World Cup Finals marketing campaign, however Street to the World Cup has all of the genuine qualification codecs, with friendlies, playoffs, and EA Sports activities Speak Radio, that includes the Males in Blazers and Ian Darke and Andy Goldstein, to maintain you entertained as you march in the direction of Brazil with any of the 203 FIFA-sanctioned groups within the recreation.

“The graphics are nice and the stadiums are beautiful.”

As a result of they had been restricted to simply the World Cup venues, EA has actually gone all-out with the element. When the pre-game introductions begin you may actually get have a look at these majestic stadiums rendered all the way down to the tiniest element. The gamers and animations are copied straight from their ‘FIFA 14’ counterparts so on a complete they’re glorious.

The one draw back is the abominable body price which to be truthful isn’t practically as a lot of a difficulty within the default digital camera mode. Nevertheless, I’ve but to fulfill a aggressive ‘FIFA’ participant who does not use the identical digital camera that I achieve this it is a bit of a blended bag.

The soundtrack for the sport options a completely completely different combine then that one in ‘FIFA 14.’ New music was added with many songs infused with a Brazilian-themed carried out by such artists as Tinie Tempah and Switchfoot.

Moreover, “We Are One (Ole Ola)” by Pitbull, Jennifer Lopez and Claudia Leitte, the official tune of the 2014 World Cup is used within the recreation’s opening cut-scene. Like I mentioned, EA doesn’t skimp on the licensing and when cash isn’t any object…..

The one main change is the inclusion of EA Sports activities Speak Radio. It options game-related commentary by Andy Goldstein, Ian Darke and “The Males in Blazers” (Michael Davies and Roger Bennett) and is culled from over 50 hours of recorded audio. The commentary dynamically adapts to your marketing campaign and is a big improve on the previous commentary in ‘FIFA 14.’ Sadly, this characteristic solely works within the three marketing campaign modes “Street to the FIFA World Cup”, “Street to Rio de Janeiro” and “Captain your Nation”.


The Story of Qualifying is a throwback to the qualifying marketing campaign with eventualities taken from the real-life occasions. As a lot because the World Cup is concerning the glamour groups within the Finals, it’s concerning the minnows in tiny stadiums reaching for his or her World Cup dream. This mode takes you alongside that journey. A bonus: For giant groups like England, Germany, and the USA, there are eventualities from each single qualifier.


Successful the World Cup or getting one participant from the B-side to the place of captain will be very satisfying in 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil.

The ‘FIFA’ engine is enjoyable and arcadey with out being outlandish and the presentation as at all times is high notch. The faults lay in the truth that its predecessor is a way more polished and content material laden recreation. ‘FIFA 14’ has plenty of the highest nationwide groups that 99% of the players on the market will select in ‘2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil’ plus all of the membership groups and the favored Final Crew card recreation.

In case you are internet hosting a ‘FIFA’ watching occasion and wish one thing to heat up your crowd this might do the trick. On the very least its pre-match introduction movies gave me the identical sense of anticipation as the actual video games, which is admittedly all the sport was meant to do
