Football’s most authentic video game experience is back and better than before as EA Sports have revamped the gameplay of FIFA 15.
EA’s annual title boasts numerous new additions than those enjoyed by its successor but fans will have to look into the smaller details to see how exactly things have improved.

FIFA 15 is the most realistic football game ever made. Players now have more than 600 emotions, losing the rigidness of yesteryear and now realistically interacting with teammates. Even audiences will be more realistic with new cheers based on live match atmosphere captured during the past season.

This title is the first of the franchise where EA have got to grips with the PS4 and Xbox One, resulting in a mass of changes to the graphics and animation engines, which are also reflected in the older consoles like PS3 and Xbox 360. Some are merely cosmetic and some almost unnoticeable, but many impact upon the gameplay. Continue reading

worldcup (easports)

EA Sports World Cup franchise is back after a four year absence as the party moves onto Brazil with enhanced features, befitting of a samba style party.

The modern FIFA games and the World Cup have long co-existed, with the latter serving as a taster ahead of the new club based game since its inception during World Cup 1998. EA Sports has always managed to capture the sense of occasion of a big event and they follow that up here in true World Cup style, akin to that of the three games that came before this title. Though there are tweaks to FIFA’s core mechanics, it’s the presentation that makes 2014 FIFA World Cup a souvenir piece worth bringing home, making it a stand out game among other souvenir games of our generation such as those titles associated with the Olympics or the Champions League.

I could easily spend the whole day/evening playing such games and I take a look into why this happens, graphics? Can’t just be that! Continue reading
