With the issue over the FIFA 14 UK cover still up in the air following Gareth Bale’s transfer to Real Madrid, we’re pleased to see that EA has instead given fans information on a highly requested aspect of the game – FIFA 14 player ratings. We now know what rating players like Gareth Bale will have in FIFA 14, but we’re surprised to see a rather low score given to arguably one of the world’s best players, Luis Suarez.
On FIFA 13, Luis Suarez had an overall rating of 86. After an amazing season with Liverpool where he scored 30 goals, you would have thought that it would warrant an upgrade on his FIFA 14 ability as he is easily in the same class of some of the best players in the world today.
However, EA has released the top 50 player ratings in FIFA 14 and we’re very surprised to see that Luis Suarez remains on an 86 – no change whatsoever. Players above him with a higher score include the likes of Juan Mata (87), Mesut Ozil (87), Vidic (87) and even Robin Van Persie with an 89.
You could argue that Suarez is as least as good as the players mentioned above, if not better. Frank Ribery has a rather high rating of 90, while man of the moment Gareth Bale will only have a FIFA 14 rating of 87 – so according to EA’s logic, Bastian Schweinsteiger is a better player than Gareth Bale. Apparently.
Do any of you actually agree with their ratings system, as we have a feeling most of you will back us up in saying that they are rather strange. Carlos Tevez an 86 the same as Luis Suarez? What Premiership were EA watching last season we wonder.
