Fifa Soccer 2013 Game

Instead of viewing the Fifa football games as a series that brings out an entirely new title each year, most fans have come to learn that each year brings what is closer to a well-considered improvement upon the previous as opposes to a complete and all-encompassing change. The leap from Fifa 11 to 12 was one of some of the more dramatic changes we've seen in the Fifa roster, but the Fifa 12 to Fifa 13 transition is best described as one of smoothness and subtlety, re-jigging and refining the status quo and building upon some well-established game modes and physics to make for an even more realistic and satisfying football experience, and career mode standing out as a separate venture in itself, with some excellent level of detail in the finer points of building a career from the ground up. Is FIFA 13 just all about the tweaks, though? Or has EA managed to pull some fresh meat out of the bag? Continue Reading

In terms of the gameplay, there are some noticeable improvements that go beyond the noticeably smoother and slicker aesthetics. Improvements to the AI make for some more interesting challenges and manoeuvring around the pitch, defensive improvements are also noticeable, but free kicks are sadly just as difficult as ever to get right. The first touch mechanism has received some attention as well, ensuring a dynamic run with the ball that is based on your position when you first made contact with it, your level as a player, and the pressure from surrounding players looking to steal the ball from you. Fifa's first touch has always made receiving and dribbling with the ball feel like a more natural experience, but the pace has truly slowed down in Fifa 13, though in the most beneficial of ways. Fifa 12 saw some fairly fast-paced gameplay that allowed you to cover ground on the pitch with little problem; Fifa 13 places more emphasis on using skill and precision when you have the ball instead of simply receiving it and making a random break for the opposition's goal.

Career Mode is a facet of the game that could consume you for weeks on end. The transfer system is now more realistic, and commentators reading out the fixtures for that extra spot of authenticity. A new inclusion is the ability for a manager to take control of an international club as your progress becomes more marked, allowing you to juggle two clubs at once. Playing in seasons also allows you to make considerable progress and earn points, and cup titles are also up for the winning as well. Pro Clubs is also a feature that has been tweaked so that you can improve your pro player by playing in online games, eliminating the frankly unfair advantage of players being able to improve their pro by other means.

If you've purchased Fifa 13 in anticipation of a brand new experience, then Fifa 13 is going to be found wanting. If you're familiar with EA's tendency to refine the well-established and build on the already content-rich foundation by adding more content and realism, you're going to have a considerable good time with this game. Incremental changes are what the series is all about, and Fifa 13 has them in bucket loads.
