It feels like previous gen. It just doesn't have "that" pop. But it's football so it's all good . 😃

I still have to download the demo, but i was watching a video of it, and the area around the stadium (Maracană) looks completely different than it should be (i used to live near this stadium, and i still pass trough it sometimes).

The chances of me getting the game is zero. Why? It's because it doesn't seem to be right for me and I don't like soccer.

Like I said in the last thread, it's hard to go back to the Xbox 360 graphics after I've been playing the Xbox One version for so long. Some guy on FUTHead was trying to say there is no difference... clearly he doesn't have an HDTV. Also the Pro camera angle seems more zoomed out than in Fifa 14, which I find annoying. Why would they tweak that. I want a tighter close up view.

I wish they would detail the FUT plans they have for next gen world cup content. Because right now I'm just annoyed.

The game play feels like a cleaned up version of 2010 FIFA World Cup game. Like, play FIFA 14 and this demo one after another and 2010 World Cup followed by this demo. Doesn't seem like the FIFA 14 engine at all.

I enjoyed it. I thought there were more fouls called than a regular FIFA 2014 game. The interaction between players when they were jostling for a ball seemed a lot better.

Even on slow, I thought the game played a little bit too fast for my liking. I thought the ball seemed to slide a bit too much on the grass like there was no friction.

Offsides seem to still be a bit of a problem. The players should be more aware then they are.

The sweeping crowd shots were great, really added to the atmosphere.

I didn't like the shots of the home country fans celebrating. Looked very poorly done. I oould barely make out the fans and the shot wasn't held for long enough. Looked horrible.

Finally played it, didn't liked it. Too arcadey, too fast... also, the camera is too close for my taste, even setting the zoom to one. I play with manual controls, but somehow it felt like i was playing on semi-assisted, it's ridiculous. They have changed one command, but i don't know if anyone noticed it. Some skilled players (4 stars plus, i believe) could make a tricky, fancy pass, activated by holding Rb/R1 when using the pass button (i often used it as a regular shot from really short distances). Now, this tricky/fancy pass is made by holding Lt/ L2 instead of Rb/R1.

Maybe, after the WC, after the price drop, i may buy the game. But this is a BIG maybe...

I'm enjoying this demo alot. I stoped playing FIFA since like FIFA 98 lol was getting PES for many years. Rating the demo itself a big plus is the fact that you can actually rematch without being forced getting back to mainscreen. Also the training sessions you get before a game are fun, can be replayed over and over and also can be used to learn tricks...being able to choose from six teams is also a big plus.
I'm getting like all the sport games demos and I don't think I'v ever played one that I was enjoying so much.

Are there differences between the EU and the US version? My demo I got from EU store has 6 teams and 2 stadiums...

Never mind there are 8 teams...

Haven't tried it yet.

But, I am having a lot of fun with World Challenge DLC for PES 2014. Only five bucks too. Great value.

Wow it does seem like last gen and not in a good way and very robotic but I did like getting to choose from many teams to play as.
Now I always get WC version since 2006 but I think I will pass this time and I will get a PS4 early for the ps4 version of the show instead as Im having a blast with the ps3 version .

I agree with you. I was looking forward to this but after playing the demo I canceled my pre-order and got the Show instead for the ps3. I didn't like the demo at all. Way too fast even on slow. You can make it better with sliders but even with that I didn't enjoy playing it.

Same here, I hate soccer and have no desire to play a soccer video game. Now in the olympics I dont mind watching womans soccer, but a big ol' NO on mens soccer ever.

i didn't mind the demo, i thought it played better than PS3 FIFA14 which I stopped playing until PS4 FIFA. I'm not spending $60 on a PS3 gen game though... why is there no PS4/XBOX One version?

No need to troll this thread. Stay in your American bubble.

They made it too arcadey. Hopefully this isn't the direction for Fifa 15. Very disappointed.

This post is why there should never be a "I don't like it/Won't play it" option in these polls. Just opens it up to needless and unwanted trolls.
