I'll probably end up getting it, but I would like to see improved AI defending and improvements to the Career mode. Increased fatigue from week to week would be great. Last year, you could play someone 3 games a week with limited fatigue.

I thoroughly enjoyed FIFA 13, so I will get it, but the next gen version of it though.

I think the fatigue was better this year than previous years where if you had a game on a Tuesday you'd have to play a completely different XI. These are professional athletes who routinely play multiple games a week.

Yup. As I posted on the comments of the video, it's the same ol' football fundamentals turned into marketing feature banging hype.

Wow this is exactly the same game. The disappointing this is that EA sports loves to rename features that were put into the game years ago to make it seam new and innovative. Every year its a "complete dribbling.. total control dribbling.. evasive performance dribbling..Unprecedented total control 100% dribbling" its a joke really

After buying FIFA 13, they haven't shown me any reason to pick up '14.

They need something groundbreaking for '15 to liven things up. Getting really stale.

Especially the AI where every single team plays alike.

My favorite sports game. Insta-buy.

The trailer looks awesome, however I am no longer getting dumbied into the hype that these games create any longer. Unless I see that FIFA has changed the pace of the game depending on the teams and players, instead of the ping pong match that it provides, I will not purchase it on console ever again.

FIFA and NHL are the same two games, except obviously FIFA is on a field. Both games are back and forth back and forth with very little need for strategy, few whistles, no team styles, no player styles, etc. It's just a ping pong match. It's fun if you are going to play drunk with your friends but not if you want to play the CPU for a real game of soccer. I will stick with FIFA 13 on my laptop with low end graphics but way better gameplay due to the customization and editing. That will no question suffice me until the day that the FIFA developers actually get this game to play like the sport. Maybe that will happen this year, but I'm not counting on it. I have hope that PES will accomplish this part of the game at some point, but not FIFA. The main thing holding FIFA back is that for as many hardcore soccer fans there are, there are just as many if not more casual fans that they need to market to. It's basically the theme for all EA games.

Precision movement will be a real game-changer if they can pull it off, also the pure shot feature looks really nice.

I can understand that the lack of "big" features may be disappointing to casual fans, but EA really needs to focus on the fundamentals instead of coming up with new gimmicks.

"This eliminates the unrealistic foot sliding that occurred in previous years..."

And there ya go... I wrote a couple weeks back that EA would market FIFA 13.5 by pointing out how borked previous versions of the game were. Because if they do that, gamers who were planning on hold off until the PS4/Xbox One version comes out in January, miiight just be inclined to pick this baby up as well in the meantime. So predictable, lol.

"The most immediate difference in FIFA 14 is how the pace of the game has changed. Precision Movement acts as the foundation and works in harmony with Teammate Intelligence and Protect the Ball, resulting in a more realistic and organic build-up throughout each play."

This sounds particularly promising given how badly this series needs this. But I'll be amazed if they can actually accomplish this with the current-gen game. FIFA is and always has been a one-dimensional arcade fest as far a CPU tactics and play buildup goes. And a big part of that seems to be the limitations of the current game engine.

Yeah, this. Anything that contributes to the Street Fighter combo moves masquerading as football = crap that makes FIFA less enjoyable.

FIFA13 on the PC was great because you could heavily tweak the game, add missing kits, players, tweak the ai, stamina and growth, etc., no reason to buy a console version anymore...

Wow, I didn't see that much different from last year. Can't wait to see next gen.

It seemed like EA was just trying to showcase how many times Bale can hit the post...

It's been obvious for weeks that current-gen FIFA 14 is getting a quick coat of paint and nothing more, and that EA's primary focus now is on next-gen FIFA for PS4 and Xbox One. Not a surprise at this point.

Read a story somewhere where the writer was disappointed that he could no longer chip the ball forward and sprint. I was immediately sold. Obviously the game was solid enough that they didn't have to reinvent the wheel, they just needed to slow the pace to make the game more like the game we all know and love. It sounds, and I stress sounds, like they've done that. Here's to hoping!

FIFA needs much more than just slowing down the gameplay in order to be considered representation of real football. Other major gameplay problems include:
* A number of meaningless player ratings (Passing and crossing ratings have no effect on individual pass/cross ability and accuracy for example)
* Complete lack of realism with regards to player ratings (Top-tier teams have all the fast players; lower tier-teams all the slow players)
* Ridiculous, over-the-top AI cheat programming
* Utter lack of differention in player positional behavior, team tactics and team style
