DO NOT BUY,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: FIFA 14 - Xbox One (Video Game)
Please save yourself the aggravation that has plagued me since I purchased this game. The game is defective and most modes will not work. Career mode freezes after the first game every time and crashes you back to the Xbox dashboard and you have to restart the game. The same happens after Ultimate Team matches as well. So that takes the two best game modes out of the game and renders them completely unplayable. There is no update in sight and EA sports has made no effort to help its customers resolve the issue. They blame Microsoft and Microsoft blames EA and nobody will take responsibility. Online seasons mode is playable but the severe lag and outrageous team ratings also make this game mode absolutely miserable to play. 9 out of every 10 teams you play will be Real Madrid and there is no way to stop the lobbed through ball. This game has infuriated me more than anything in my entire life and I have heard rumors of a class action lawsuit being filed against EA. This game was the biggest waste of money and there is no way to return it unless you want to take $15 from Gamestop. I am warning you all to STAY AWAY FROM THIS GAME as it will cause you endless frustration and be a total and complete waste of your money. If all you want to do is play kick off games by yourself or with a friend then you'll be ok but that is literally the only game mode that works. Also the controller vibration function is messed up as well with the game and there is no vibration. There are probably more problems I am forgetting because they are simply endless. This is hands down the worst game I have ever played in my entire life and I have a gamer score of over 50k. Absolutely disgusted with EA and am never EVER buying an EA game again. Good riddance.

Agreed on all your issues, I have the same issues as well. Complete waste of money. I've purchased every flavor of soccer that EA has put out and this is by far the worst I have ever seen. Bugs are one thing but when it is completely unplayable it is really pointless. Note supposedly if you create a new account/user name you may be able to play career mode, but obv. this will not be linked with your gamer account. If that does work then you'd think EA could figure out how to make it work.

Fully agree with you Mate .Class action is by Battlefield players against EA but we FIFA players r bunch of wuss..We complain but again end up buying SAME game next Yr . i blame PES for it ,only if they could break their mac and come up with decent engine .we may have choice.EA knows it and keep on milking us,Embrace your self for FIFA world cup to dish up another $60 in couple of months with features stripped, May return.

The last FIFA game I bought was FIFA 12 on the 360. I promised myself never to buy another EA FIFA game ever again and I don't see that changing. Thanks for the review.

Also the kinect voice commands don't work on every game mode which is lame. Game is broken. EA is horrible!
