Guys, I had the same problem - clicked play button and nothing happend. I tried many solutions and finally I fixed it. For me solution is installation of all available updates for windows 8.1. I used "WSUS Offline Update" utility for that because "Windows update center" couldn't find any updates (maybe because I didn't update it for four years). So, just try to install all available updates for your version of windows. Also disable "Compatibility Mode" and "run as administrator" checkboxes in exe file properties if you enabled it earlier.
My system is also does not meet the minimal requirements and fifa works like a charm now:
Intel core i5-4210U 1.7GHz
NVIDIA GeForce 840M 2GB
Fixed: Manually updated Windows, reinstalled the newest NVidia Driver. Works fine now.
