Factors such as defensive pressure, trajectory of the ball, and velocity of the pass all factor into a player’s success. Expand

    The best change is an interesting contradiction that gives you more control, while taking some away.

    With absolute minimal issues with gameplay, the deepest roster in any title to date, updated career and pro modes, and some of the most accurate player models, FIFA 13 is the best soccer game to date. If this were the World Cup, FIFA 13 would be hoisting the trophy.

    If you want 100mph exciting football, FIFA 13 won't let you down. It's got all the crash, bang, wallop excitement of the Premier League...with goal line clearances, overly physical tackles, barn-busting supershots, refereeing controversy, spawny deflections, comedy defending and more. [Nov 2012, p.74]

    The new offensive AI, in particular, with its new pathing routines makes FIFA 13 worth buying. Additionally, the other new features like First-Touch-Control and tactical free-kicks enhance the franchise's playability. Add the large variety of game modes and licenses and you get one of the best sports games on the market.

    I couldn't wish for more. The faster pace really does wonders for FIFA 13. It might take a while until you get used to it, but that's a couple of hours well invested as you get much more dynamic, tense and unpredictable game of football.

    Retaining its position at the top of the league, FIFA 13 shows us yet again that EA Sports is the daddy of iterative improvements. It may not be a huge leap over FIFA 12, but it remains the very best football game available on consoles. An easy recommendation.

    There are some annoyances--the physics engine feels like it's been overly tinkered, and the shortcomings of career mode's become apparent when you step out of Europe's top leagues. However, it succeeds at one key task that it sets out to do: render FIFA 12 obsolete. You can wear last year's jersey, but you won't want to play last year's game any longer.

There is no need to make big changes to the game every year, because unlike last PES games, FIFA is already great, why would you make profound changes to it? It just needs a little tweaking in some features. After playing FIFA 13 for a few days, I went to play FIFA 12 online against a friend of mine who hasn't got the new one yet, and guess what: FIFA 12 IS OFFICIALLY OBSOLETE!! Expand

Todo anos eles mudam algo, e nesse não foi diferente. As pessoas não podem se deparar com algo novo sem reclamar! O "first touch" ficou incrível, fazendo a jogatina parecer cada vez mais real, frustrando provavelmente as pessoas que negativaram o jogo! No começo eu tive opiniões muito parecidas com essas das pessoas que negativaram, mas aí eu me acostumei com as novidades, e adorei! Para mim, o único problema do FIFA 13 é o árbitro. Muitas vezes ele marca faltas que não existiram e ainda por cima dá cartão. Além de não marcar faltas que claramente existiram! Mas fora isso, não tenho nada a reclamar. Aqueles "mini-games" também são uma ótima pedida! Enfim, para mim o FIFA 13 ainda continua sendo o melhor jogo de futebol dessa geração! Acho que as pessoas que negativaram deveriam ver o jogo com um olhar mais crítico, aposto que todas as pessoas que negativaram são frustradas pelo "first touch" ou sempre "apanham" quando jogam multiplayer ou offline. Novamente a EA fez um ótimo trabalho. E a narração em português ainda está um pouco pobre de conteúdo, mas mostra cada vez mais o olhar para o Brasil! Obrigado por mais este ótimo jogo, EA! Expand

    Why a 5 score? Well...No innovation at all, impact engine is still broken, EAS FC is always down, I get a feeling that i'm always playing onWhy a 5 score? Well...No innovation at all, impact engine is still broken, EAS FC is always down, I get a feeling that i'm always playing on ice, it's almost impossible to dribble, 1st touch doens't work properly. I've had this game since launch and I tried really hard to like it but that moment when you say "ohh I love this" never came. I'm not a PES fanboy don't get me wrong, to be honest i've never played a PES game I think I might trade this crap game for PES to give it a shot. Expand

    EA sports have gone back 5 years with this title, player movement reminds me of FIFA 08..game is just a disgrace. Only reason i gave this gameEA sports have gone back 5 years with this title, player movement reminds me of FIFA 08..game is just a disgrace. Only reason i gave this game 2 is because manager mode is quite good until it gets boring. Matches are fixed also for instance im dominating a game, the opposition has had 3 players sent off...easy win?? think again!! i hit the post 3 times, van persie misses 4 sitters that an old crow on a zimmer could finish and then out of the blue my defence splits letting the opposition through to score a 90th minute 1 nil win!!!

Don't believe the hype, don't go with the professional reviewers' opinion, who clearly get paid or otherwise benefited directly by EA. The game has countless issues, both online and offline, it has tons of bugs (that will probably never be fixed because EA has proved beyond all doubts that they don't care).

    The gameplay is so broken, the game speed is laughable and ridiculously high, the passing system sucks, the UT servers are down very often, the new first touch controls are a joke. Everything about this game sucks. EVERYTHING.

    And EA simply don't care because they sold their 7 million copies. A zero is perhaps too much for this game, I wish I could give it a negative review number.

    I want my money back. Just go see what's happening in the EA's official forum, 90% of the people writing there are just mad an the game and EA.

    Worst.Fifa.ever.
