Fifa 13, The feelings mutual,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: FIFA 13 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)Just like last year Fifa 13 has had a lot of new additional features, but overall the game still has it's flaws.
This years manager mode has had a lot of additional features which do make the mode more enjoyable to play, transfers are now more realistic, and the international games throughout the season give it a more life-like feel, and with results & fixtures now read out by a commentator while you are in the Menu's it really shows how much EA has put into the mode, the only problem would be that once again in certain games the AI can start playing unrealistically well, which can ruin the game you are in, also there seems to be an Increase in the number of cutback goals that the computer score using
Over the past couple of years pro-clubs has been ruined by Overrated players, boosters, and pro keepers. So it's refreshing to know something has finally been done about this. Now it is only possible to improve your pro by playing online games only, this re-introduces the challenge of improving your pro, plus now you can turn off Pro-Keepers with the flick of a button and with new promotion + relegation battle the game is also more enticing to play.
Overall I feel that Fifa's general gameplay has improved, the AI are now much more responsive in situations and don't cling onto the ball as much, the defending is slightly better and the amount of tedious free-kicks given away has drastically reduced, there are still problems however, The passing is still easily prone to flying off in the wrong direction, and the EA servers seem to be down more than they are up! Also the new first touch engine means that playing with lesser rated players usually ends up with you losing the ball.
In my personal opinion Fifa 13 is a much better game than Fifa 12 but still has sloppy errors.

This game is an improvement to FIFA 12 just like FIFA 12 was to FIFA 11 and onwards. I feel like EA has still left major issues in the game which could be fixed, BUT they want to sell you FIFA 14 next year which will fix one of those issues and introduce something more just so they can keep selling the game every year and people will want to buy it. I understand that this is how EA makes money and FIFA is just a product-a way of making that money but what I do ask for is for them to at least fix the main gameplay (passing, computer ability, not as bad first touch and lower rated players to not miss open goals...) as that is the most important thing to me and will make me much happier with the game and I will be more likely to buy it every year as opposed to once every two as I have been doing.
Overall great improvement..as always but please fix the gameplay.

You should try to change passing to manual controls. Good way to work against the feared momentum and make your attacking play more flexible

Yes i really like this game but there,are major flaws the intro is boring and in career mode after three seasons the gameplay often sticks in the transfer window which is really frustrating,you have to switch off and start again.Is it my console getting old or does this happen to a lot of peoples games?
