Steam is not new, it has been packaged with FM since 2009. You had to install Steam with last years version, same as this years. What have you tried so far?
Have you tried installing from the disk itself? (I know people say it has to be downloaded but it don't)
If you have already started to download it, pause it, go into the game library and right click on FM13, click on delete local content. This will uninstall what you have already installed. If the disk is not in your drive, put it in and wait for the Autoplay box to appear, if it is already in, go into my computer and double click the DVD drive its in. It will bring up the menu for it again, click on install game, and it will start to run as it did before you downloaded the whole game. keep going the same way, until you get to what drive you install it on. you will notice it doesn't have an estimated time for download. Click next and it will install it from the disk. It will have an update to download, but that is normal with all Steam games (and all games to be honest, except Steam does it automatically.)
This will install it from the disk instead, and this will work for every Steam game you buy in disk for, just follow the instructions, and it will work.
If you are having trouble playing the game itself, then Steam could be having problems, what with it being Christmas and them having their sale on. What you need to do is log into steam, go to the Steam menu in the top left corner, and click go offline. This will stop steam attempting to join the servers for FM, which in turn stops you trying to access the online content at a very busy period. If this fails, then all I can suggest is contact Steam directly through their website and waiting for a reply.
Hopefully one of these options will help you as this is a fantastic game, and I am sure you would rate it at least 3 stars if you played it.
