FIFA 13   (2012)
Review
With Konami’s PES 2013 heralding a return to form for the series, the gap between it and EA Sport’s juggernaut is now, more than ever, at its smallest. FIFA 2013 is by no means a gigantic leap forward from last year’s iteration, but it does just enough to pip PES to the post once more.

Glossier than ever, the career mode delves a little deeper and the crack-like addiction of the superb Ultimate Team mode has reached new heights of brilliance, but what FIFA 13 lacks is a truly killer addition to its roster that confirms its undisputed heavyweight championship clout in the genre. That said, defensive systems and attacking AI have been finely tuned, commentary continues to enhance its connection with the real thing, and multiplayer has had a sufficient nip/tuck, ensuring that FIFA will sate the appetite of footie fans until the curtain is pulled back on next year’s entry.

However, you can’t help but feel that lack of a killer feature is an intentional move on behalf of the development team, who have subtly carried on with the series of alterations it made to last year’s edition. FIFA, after all, is a franchise that – for the moment – appears to consistently pride itself on evolution rather than revolution. And that, by no means, is a bad thing: for now.

fifa 13

Fifa 13 is an actually really good original football game. I'm so happy that in your manager mode you can now manage an international team aswell as your club. The passing this time round is fantastic and say you go Xavi or Iniesta they pass like them down to the simple little pass. Only problem i don't like about Fifa is the first touch system and how sometimes when you barely even touch the ball it goes flying out infront of you. :) ... More
