Many people are still playing the seventh-gen consoles, though, so the only balls you’ll be kicking are in 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil.
FIFA 14 is released in 2013
Since we are still very passionate about that game, we could put together a quick list of reasons you should consider playing FIFA 14 again.
So, not many sports simulators make it past their initial year. Like big titles like Call of Duty that come out every year, the latest iteration overshadows the previous version of the game. They are usually left being played by diehard fans or didn’t have enough money to upgrade the console or buy the game.
FIFA 14, however, has held up pretty well. It’s hard to criticize such a sound generation of gaming, but it still has its subtleties to get used to again. Graphically, we have come a long way, so you will notice that the visuals and animations are a bit dated. However, it is still a beautiful game and has held up respectfully. Playing FIFA 14 in 2021 will feel natural, for sure.
Tweaks to gameplay for FIFA 14
When FIFA 14 launched, EA had addressed many of the concerns players of FIFA 13 had in terms of gameplay matters. EA enhanced typical actions like passing, player acceleration, and dribble control in response to those inquiries. This is one of the rare instances where fan input got an active response. While there are issues with avatars feeling laggy during gameplay, the bulk of the problems with clunkiness and player-agency got taken care of.
FIFA 14 didn’t have an Ultimate Team game mode
If FIFA 14 Ultimate Team was a mode that you were looking forward to, this iteration of the franchise did not have it. EA did mention that they were going to bring related content to FIFA 14. However, that wasn’t the entire experience that players were expecting at that time.
You can train before and between games
Typically, you train your players with the hope that they will get better. However, if you do poorly in a drill, your players’ performance in the actual match will be affected by poor morale. It’s an interesting game mechanic that many games don’t do, making FIFA 14 unique and intuitive for players. You are constantly analyzing the metagame instead of just jumping into games and performing the same repetitive actions repeatedly.
The Football Club lets you level up
Comparable to FIFA 14, your Football Club level and participation in FIFA 14 will transfer over to the 2014 FIFA World Cup, and there will be unique articles for you to purchase, as well. Every world Cup ball is ready in the Football Club.
What’s the status of FIFA 14 World Cup Brazil?
Well, if you are looking to test your FIFA 14 skills around the world via the internet, you will find that to be impossible in 2021. As of October 2017, EA shut down the servers for FIFA 14. Also, the Ultimate Team update that finally came to the game is no longer accessible.
You can still play the game, but you won’t be able to experience any of the game’s online features. That’s not that big a problem, though, if you have someone with whom to play locally.
If you are thinking about playing FIFA 14 World Cup Brazil, we hope this shortlist helped you decide. Don’t hesitate to give us your experiences if you are still playing this game today.
