Same old FIFA, brand new bugs.,
This review is from: FIFA 13 - Ultimate Edition (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
At the point of posting this review, the game is full of crashing/freezing bugs, which EA sports still haven't officially acknowledged the existence of. No efforts of data deletion/re-installation/cache clearing have thus far been successful, despite this advice coming from EA themselves.
The 'improved' collision physics mean that the players still run into each other, but fall over much more realistically. This is when they're not inexplicably retreating from the ball, thanks to no apparent improvement in the AI. The 'FIFA 13 First touch control' is remarkably similar to those of the previous versions, intermittently removed and then re-introduced as a 'new' feature every couple of years, as are the free kick systems, custom pro options and international play options. This year, there is no option to use the same virtual pro universally across all game modes, presumably being put on a back burner and preparing to be wheeled out as '14's bold and innovative new feature. I suspect the franchise hit its apex with the immaculate FIFA'98 and realised it had hit a very solid and cynical creative brick wall.
To summarise; FIFA 13's newest,boldest, most distinguishing feature.....is that it doesn't work.
