FIFA 14 is the annual installment in EA’s FIFA soccer simulation franchise for the season 2013 – 2014. The interface has been largely changed in favor of a sleeker design in comparison to FIFA 13. Gameplay though remains, more or less same. Graphics is probably slightly better.

TL;DR Its FIFA, and what can be wrong. If you like football, and if you like games, just buy this and enjoy.
197 hours total playtime.
Purpose – Relaxation
Gameplay – Playing is generally hard, unless you tune down the difficulty to lower settings. Getting your crosses and lob passes right can take a lot of time and practice. On lower difficulty settings you can just trot up to the penalty box and take your shot, no one will tackle you.
Graphics – Good.
Performance – Is a resource hogger just as any 3D simulations game of its time.
Entertainment – As entertaining as real football is!
Plot (if applicable) – N/A
Replay value – Infinite.
Immersion – Immersive enough.
Overall it is just FIFA. What is to be said anyways.
