Fueled by EA SPORTS IGNITE, FIFA 14 will feel alive with players who think, move, and behave like world-class footballers, and dynamic stadiums that come to life. Players have four times the decision making ability and feel alive with human-like reactions, anticipation, and instincts. With 10 times more animation depth and detail than previous consoles, FIFA 14 delivers the dynamic movements and biomechanics of the worlds best footballers. Players are agile and athletic as they plant, pivot and cut, and explode out of each step. The increased fidelity has a game-changing effect on gameplay. Plus, the artistry and athleticism of footballers will come to life with the addition of hundreds of new types of skills and hundreds of new behaviors. And for the first time ever, fans will feel the electricity of a living stadium as the emotions of new 3D crowds rise and fall around the stories on the pitch.
FIFA 14 has no big differences compared to its predecessor - a few control changes, the playing speed is a bit slower, a few small differences in the playing modes and a few other improvements, e.g. the ball physics or animations, here and there. The unique selling points are still the broad license package and a big selection of playing modes. Besides the usual leagues and matches, the two most unique modes are Ultimate Team (basically a trading card variant in which players have to assemble a team with a good chemistry) and career mode (includes various features of soccer managers, e.g. scouting).
Exclusive to this version are tournaments, FIFA Interactive World Cup, Be a Pro (taking control over a single athlete), Head to Head and the Creation Centre mode.
