The 2014 FIFA World Cup kicks off in June. If you can't wait that long, pick up a copy of EA Sports' FIFA World Cup Brazil for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. This offensive-minded game celebrates the pageantry of the world's most popular tournament, with virtual fans celebrating in the streets and huge fireworks displays. Of course, you'll find a wide assortment of modes, including the popular Captain Your Country.

There are a variety of countries to choose from. EA rates each team on a five star scale, with numbers spread across the following three categories: ATT, MID and DEF. You can do plenty of damage with a four star team, like Mexico, the United States and Japan, but if you're a newcomer to FIFA or enjoy crushing your adversaries, here are the highest ranked countries.
