Summary: I am not impressed at all. Online play is terrible. Sometimes my players automatically do things. Like just kick the ball away when on a fast break even though i am just running with the ball. EA needs to do a better job.
Been with the series since '98, this is a mediocre effort

Summary: Pros: Full licensing Lots of modes to play Skill games are fun and new Cons: FULL of glitches/bugs First-touch addition is bad Online play is tedious Easy to lose to cheap tactics I've been with the series since FIFA '98. Anyone remember the indoor mode in that game? That was awesome. This year's showing is mediocre at best. Since the "pros" listed here are basic, I won't discuss them as they should be included in every game.
Summary: This is more of an initial complaint rather than a review, the reason being is that aspects of the game do not function properly. I played one v one games against a friend, problem free and we enjoyed the matches fully. Played career mode and in the second season a significant error occurred - THE BALL WAS INVISIBLE - now, I'm not one to complain often but unless I've completely lost the plot; I believe the ball and its whereabouts during a game are quite important.
Summary: I purchased this game for my son. Whilst the graphics and gameplay are good, the reason I got this game was for the Fifa points. We haven't been able to use them for love nor money, I am struggling to communicate with EA SPORTS in an attempt to remedy the situation, and now I see they are pushing on with FIFA 14!!! Annoying!
Another steady improvement, if you don't mind glitches...

Excerpt: "It's a yearly occurrence. Get down to a local supermarket, splash the cash, and prepare to surrender to the charms of the world's greatest football game for another year. FIFA 13 is an improvement on its predecessors, with ever-improving graphics, and an increasingly realistic gameplay that even takes into account a professional's ability to miscontrol the ball like a mere mortal. The online play is again strong. My one criticism would be that the ...
Pros: Great gaming, updated squads, improved graphics
Summary: The game is visually stunning. There are plenty of nice touches with
animation and stadium detail and the crowd sounds and reactions to players is
impressive. The commentary is OK and up to par with other FIFA games.
Game play is tight, though I encountered some freezing for a second or two
during offline play. Character models also look like they are skating at times
along the grass but the player collision physics are not so dramatic.
Conclusion: The latest iteration of FIFA at first glance appears to be a good game, with a raft of upgraded modes and options. However, dig a little deeper and its many problems soon become apparent. From servers that keep kicking you off, to crazy collisions, invisible balls and walls, the game is plagued with problems.
Conclusion: What can i say the game play look good and i class myself as a good games player.This fifa is a big let down 1st you play the single player and the games are so hard from basic to legend its still hard to play your clear on goal and from know were there is 2 or 3 defenders on you, have they got bionic legs.Just to try something i went into creator a player and made a whole team of top level players all with super sprint, guess what clear on goal and from know were 2 or 3...
