    Re: FIFA 14 - General Discussion

    I'll agree to disagree about how impressive next gen FIFA is, 'cause obviously that's your opinion. Though to be fair, there are only a couple launch titles that are going to provide the wow factor, especially for a PC gamer.

    But it's not a port like the first game on last gen was, or like AC4, BF, or CoD are. There are clear gameplay differences/additions, even if they aren't massive and don't revolutionize the experience.

    EA and the FIFA devs have received a lot criticism through the years, and it was often justified. But when you look at what the other AAA cross-gen titles have done, and you look at Madden and NBA Live, personally I'm pretty happy with the effort EA put into improving their first edition of next gen FIFA.

    In absolute terms FIFA might not be "next gen" enough, but relative to the other cross gen titles we have for launch, with the exception of NBA 2K14 probably, NG FIFA is a pretty nice improvement and I think for that the FIFA devs deserve some praise.

    Maybe i didnt/dont know the literally for Port, i didnt mean its exact the same game as the 360 but on 1080pthat would actually be the PC version at 1080p) but id say its 95% the same gamplay... somethings smoother here and there, ball a bit looser/faster but thats about it from my experience.

    As a Fifa player the upgread is well worth it enough because of the improved graphics, but i dont the subtle differences are a game changer for plp who desliked the 360 version to like this one(i have lots of friends in this situation)...

    Btw, completly agree on praising the devs, the game is really good as it was already CG. Its a great, solid effort for their 1st try on NG.

    Do players still get brushed off the ball really easily? Clubs is unplayable because of this + chipped through balls. Has that been affected?

    I can't speak for multiplayer but in single player it's improved for sure. Defending and collisions still needs work but I think it's certainly more realistic now.

    But again, multiplayer is always a little different so I can't say for sure.

    I was just wondering if you've managed take a look at the different camera options? Are they the same as they always are, or do they offer a bit more scope with editing them? I ask because I love broadcast cam (the TV style one) but ive always wanted it to be zoomed in a lot more. I'd imagine it's the same as CG cameras but thought I'd ask :)

    On a different note, that video of Spurs at White Hart Lane looks awesome. I used to see them quite often as a kid as some family are Spurs fans, so I'd like to play a CM with them. The stadium looks awesome.

    As much as I'd love to have the cash to splash on next-gen Fifa, I'm still on old-gen Fifa 13 which I have only just got around to starting.

    Quick question - Is Fifa 14 (PS3) significant enough of an improvement on 13 to justify my picking it up?

    Just so you know, I finally saw a replay showcasing a skill. I did a "Berba-spin" with Robinho and they showed the replay and commented on it a bit later.

    Re: FIFA 14 - General Discussion

    At least on the XO the camera editing options seems to be broken, for exemple at Goodison Park if u edit the height and zoom the camera doenst change at all(Tele Broadcast), on some other stadiums u have instances where the camera just changes to a certain point, for exemple at the Emirates after u move the height above 10 ull notice that the camera doesnt move at all...like it get stucks on 10 heigh evan though u set to 20, very annoying!

    Also the new NEXT GEN camera(called default) isnt editable at all!

    Re: FIFA 14 - General Discussion

    Sorry, I don't know. Tele broadcast camera at default settings is good enough for me, so I dont' mess around with camera options.

    I'm running a Spurs CM to get a feel for the game. It started off well but I"m struggling seriously at the moment. It hurts that Spurs wingers aren't nearly as effective in the game as in real life, at least for me. Chadli kinda sucks, Townsend isn't rated high enough to mimic his recent form, Sigurdsson is slow, and Lamela isn't as good an attacker as he should be.

    Eriksen however is one of my favorite players in the game to play with; he's awesome.

    It also hurts that it's still too easy to leak sloppy goals to the CPU. Whereas the Spurs defense in real life is rock solid this year, it's hard to replicate that because the CPU gets too many second chance goals. I also still concede a fair share of headers, though no where near the same levels in current gen.

    The AI is improved but the ratio of sloppy goals the CPU gets is still too high and I'd like to see more quality goals from the AI. Hopefully what we've got now is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to improved AI.

    My PS4 copy arrived today, now just waiting for the console. Curious to see the new animations and crowds etc.

    Re: FIFA 14 - General Discussion

    That might not be a bug, I remember from the current gen that sometimes the cam would go to a different position because of the cam in real life. Maybe they are more forcefull with it this time to highlight the new real camera's?

    Re: FIFA 14 - General Discussion

    That's been the same on CG for certain stadiums for many Fifas, a few of the stadiums don't support the camera being zoomed all the way out (probably because of framerate or poorly built stadia with objects that go over the camera at certain heights).

    Re: FIFA 14 - General Discussion

    Yeh true, but its much worse on NG ull see... i had my tele broadcast camera set up Height 15, Zoom 8 in FIFA CG and it worked in every stadium(i would use zoom at 0, but knowing some stadiums didnt support it i got used to 8 so i'd had the same angle in every stadium)... now on NG i just cant use one single camera that would fit all stadiums, every stadium have different angles(zoom/height restrictions) and i hate that i cant just get used to one single type :(

    Anout the new NG camera angle yeh, i think they locked the positions for the right porpuses(simulate the real camera position) but why mess the old tele broadcast one?

    I like to not have to alter my camera once fixed

    I will be more than happy if that's the only problem :)

    Need to pick up Fifa 14 from somewhere before launch. Hopefully the servers will be stable as ps4 is already out in the US!

    What are the camera angles like in NG Fifa? Are there more customizable options? More options for camera angles for replays?

    Re: FIFA 14 - General Discussion

    just saw a fifa 14 next gen review from gamespot on youtube ,
    they mentioned there was no longer tournement mode in next gen version !!!!!!
    also no longer online friendlys.
    can anyone who has the game confirm this.
    we would be forced to play careermode !
    no longer cups from countrys ,or custom leagues or tournements ?
    surely they are not going to be like pes 13 in the past and remove these gamemodes .
    i play mostly cups choosing several teams ,or stand alone leagues .
    just hope the reviewer missed something or they bring tournement mode with dlc later .

    Just read what we were talking above your post... NG has less option in this department.


    @Placebo
    I didnt fully tested Tele, but it seemed it had the same issues.

    Maybe best thing about next gen FIFA: far fewer bicycle clearances by defenders!

    More animations, improved heading, and better AI... seems to all equal defenders being able to more realistically deal with aerial balls. I've still seen bicycle clearances but only a few.

    Does anyone know if we can have custom music in the next gen version? It would be a drag to listen to the EA trax for a whole year...

    Damn that's the first I've heard of it. So we can't listen to MP3's on our PS4? Or just disc based MP3 songs.

    If it's not in the PS4 version, it won't be in the XBO version either. Presentation wise they are identical.

    Both. Surprised you missed the news, was covered extensively here and everywhere else on the net :) the good news is Sony confirmed both will be added in a future update, but of course no ETA, and nothing from EA on whether custom chants/music is something they will patch back in, knowing EA of course the answer is probably "we could but we won't because we do the absolute minimum to support the game unless it's making sure we continue to receive money from microtransactions for UT".
