FIFA World Cup Brazil (PS3)
It's that magic moment that happens every four years, when people the world over join together in peace and harmony to pin their hopes on their country's team winning the World Cup. The FIFA World Cup is the world's biggest sporting event, watched by almost a billion people worldwide. Every four years, EA Sports taps into this spirit and ships an alternative version of its FIFA video game in recognition of the big event. This year, the annual game is FIFA 14 and the special edition is 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil ($59.99).
FIFA 14 was the first game in the FIFA franchise for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, yet 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil is made for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 only. (I tested on the PS3.) This decision makes some sense when you consider the international flavor of FIFA, as there are far more last-generation consoles around the world than new ones. So it's great news for those with Xbox 360s and PS3s, but less-great news for anyone who upgraded to a PS4 or Xbox One. For the latter, the real question is whether the Brazilian look and feel and the timing of the game's release to coincide with the World Cup are enough to offset the step backward in graphics and gameplay.
The most apparent difference between FIFA World Cup Brazil and FIFA 14 is that the special edition has been given a Brazilian, so to speak. There's a Carnival atmosphere and plenty of samba music, and bright green and yellow (Brazil's national colors) are sprinkled all over the game's menus.
EA Sports captures the excitement of this year's World Cup before the game even starts. Witty banter from Ian Darke and Andy Goldstein, or Michael Davies and Roger Bennett, kick off the scene. No matter which pair you choose, the opinions fly freely while you navigate menus to start your first match. More than 50 hours of dialogue specific to the teams spice up both the menus and the matches.
