Can the next-gen experience be tweaked to provide an even more realistic simulation? FIFA maestro Orion523 shares his thoughts and wisdom.
Since this is my very first article for FSB, I thought I’d introduce myself. My name is John but a few of you may know me better by my OS (Operation Sports) username which is Orion523. I am a diehard FIFA fan and a proud supporter of Liverpool Football Club. Besides being a big career mode guy, another thing I really enjoy doing is creating slider sets for use in my CM. Of course they can also be used in kickoff mode as well, but their mainly tuned for career mode play. My goal when creating a set is to simply offer the most “sim like” experience without sacrificing fun factor, because in the end who really cares how “sim” a game plays if you’re not having any fun doing it.
Now that you know a little bit about me and what I’m trying to accomplish, let’s get to the sliders. Posted here a couple of months ago, I did create a slider set for the current gen version but in all honesty I was never quite happy with it. In the end I ended up helping out my friend Gonira put together his set, which in my opinion, is the best current gen slider set available for FIFA 14 bar none. If you plan on staying with current gen this year and you’re a career mode player be sure to seek out Gonira’s FIFA 14 current gen slider set at Operation Sports. I guarantee you will not be disappointed!
Released last week for PS4 and available this week for XBOX One, the next gen version of FIFA 14 does not disappoint. Thanks to the huge boost in horsepower brought on by the new systems, FIFA 14 not only looks better, it plays what I feel to be the finest version of virtual football ever created for a console. Yes, it is that good! Gone are the days when your AI teammates just stood around waiting for you to control them, and gone also are the days of brain dead CPU opponents. This is FIFA 14 at it’s absolute best and if you’re even a casual fan of The Beautiful Game, I recommend that you run to your nearest game shop to pick up a copy.
OK, now that I’ve bored you to tears, here are the sliders. Remember, one game/one half does not make a slider set, anything can happen in one game. Give the set a good play through a minimum of 10-15 games. If you still consistently notice issues please feel free to comment about it and let me know what you’re seeing. All comments are welcomed, good bad or indifferent and any insight you guys can offer will only help make this a better set.
So without further ado, here you go!
