FIFA 14 by EA Sports hits the back of the net every time.
FIFA 14 has undergone a major facelift on Android, with the game looking more impressive than ever and player animations looking more authentic that previous versions. All the core game modes have made a comeback, with the inclusion of the hugely popular Ultimate Team mode, where you need to create the best team possible by purchasing packets of players.
In app purchases are a common trend in EA titles, but you can get away without spending a penny within FIFA 14, although parting with some cash can open up various cups and competitions.
Gameplay is as fluent as ever, with a solid gesture system now in place to make passing and shooting more fluent. Touchscreen controls are still some way behind their console counterparts, but the controls here are decent enough. It’s hard to fault FIFA 14 in many areas and if you can get to grips with the controls, then you’re on to a winner here.

LG has announced their very own curved smartphone, the G Flex.
The LG G Flex may not be the first curved smartphone, thanks to the Samsung Galaxy Round, but it certainly a device that will raise a few eyebrows.
Sporting a 6-inch display, the G Flex curves from top to bottom, rather than from the sides. Although the curves located at the top and bottom of the device have been used to make handling the device easier, its size could potentially be a downfall.
There’s plenty of power at your disposal, however, with the G Flex sporting a 2.26GHz Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and a massive 3,500mAh battery. Around the back is a 13 megapixel camera and there;s a standard front-facing camera for video chats too.
