2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil review

There’s probably no way to make Fifa 14 Ultimate team Coins
a World Cup game and not have it seem like a cynical cash-in. Sports sims are one of the few types of games to come close to justifying yearly sequels, but if you’re going to have two of them in the one year then just how different can the World Cup one be? As ever the answer is not very, Aion Gold although this does make a reasonable effort nonetheless.

Perhaps the only surprising thing about 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil is that it’s only being released on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. There are no Xbox One or PlayStation 4 versions, with EA giving various unlikely-sounding excuses for the fact – such as that host nation Brazil has a very low adoption rate for the new consoles.

Given the game is clearly going to be top of the European charts for the whole of the summer we’re not sure what that’s got to do with anything, but much like Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel it shows a surprising reluctance for major publishers to bring proven big sellers onto the new consoles.
