Their faces seem more expressive to me... Although tbh with this kind of game it comes down to how it feels more than anything else, and screenshots don't really help with that vibe. Need gameplay.

Gameplay is top priority this year.

The gameplay changes don't look hugely drastic. An upgrade perhaps, but nothing major. Then again, it depends how much of a difference the improved AI and ball control is.

Please please please spend time perfecting/improving Manager Mode pleaaaase.

They never do at first, but when you get round to playing it the difference usually staggering - at least, it is to me.

Looking forward to this as always. Barring any disasters, a certain purchase.

Sigh.. Still it looks they don't introduce 3D grass, nothing to create more athmosphere in the stands, same old crappy looking supporters,... :(

I'm not sure I'd go quite so far as staggering, but I do admit it takes a while to adjust and going back to the predecessor is more of a step than you first think. I care not much for graphics but in 14' I would love to see a revamped graphics engine. Maybe it'll be 15' for the new XBOX (assumption).

I mean staggering in the sense that, for me at least, it's impossible to go back to the previous iteration without it feeling like a significant step backwards. It still inherently feels like a FIFA game each year, so staggering probably is a bit too much of a superlative.

As for visuals, we won't see any drastic changes in that regard until the next generation of gaming - hopefully they're already thinking about that. What I would like to see this year is a change in the overall atmosphere of the game, which I feel has been notably absent from the series for a long time. The crowd needs to be more animated and their audio needs to be completely overhauled, while the commentary also needs to be improved.

I've been a huge fan of the gameplay since FIFA 09, but the atmosphere takes a bit away from the experience in my opinion.

Oh yes definitely they can address the idea of immersion in the game. One recommendation I would have which unfortunately is probably unrealistic is to get a more dynamic and realistic commentator system in. Basically this would mean just recording an absurd amount of dialogue but the current one does grate after a while.

My flatmates play Madden and I do like how they put in little things like advertisements etc, it just adds to the game. This isn't really common in football, but maybe putting in some of the pre-match discussions or something.

Iiiii don't know. I like what they have said about this year so will see what happens. I'm eagerly waiting to hear about the Manager modes. I'd love for us to start off with the seasons as they are but then go back to putting in stadium expansion, coaches and coach management. Train the players up for speed. The players don't have to be the same as their counterparts, and it would be awesome to see them become even stronger players by training their strengths.

    Tiz Also, like the Division you have to cash in the loot before people steal it for themselves. The Division ran into the problem of just allowing anyone in the instances. (10 Hours ago)
