FIFA 13 REVIEW
The ultimate footballing experience?

Posted by PlayDevil.com Staff on Oct 18, 2012 14:18 (Oct 18, 2012 14:18)

Written by: Ian
 
 
Kick Off:
 
So it’s that time of year again when gamers worldwide get their annual footballing fix, whether this being in the form of the latest FIFA or PES offerings.
 
In this review we take a look at EA’s "FIFA 13" to see if the game is worthy of the title of champions or more of a relegation contender.
 
Whats new?
 
You may be forgiven in thinking that not much more can be done to enhance the FIFA experience yet year after year the game includes a whole host of new features and this year is no different.
 
Firstly we have a better AI which sees players being more intelligent in using the space of the pitch when attacking and helping to create more opportunities for team mates. This, combined with the all new first touch control (which rewards those whom may be more skilled at the game), the new dribbling system taken from FIFA Street and improved defending makes the game mirror real life football even more.
 
Other new gameplay features include Kinect support for issuing tactics at any point during matches which can work well, improved tactical free kicks which gives better control over how you approach dead ball situations and an all new skill zone. This skill zone is a rather good inclusion as whilst you wait for a match to kick off no longer is it simply a case of one on one shooting drills and now offers a series of challenges which reward you for meeting set objectives.

Game modes have also seen a dramatic improvement with the option now to become an international player or manager, transfers and loans in career and virtual pro along with the option to change careers mid season all of which adds much more depth to proceedings and makes what was already a comprehensive package even more impressive.
 
Content:
 
FIFA 13 is absolutely jam packed with game modes which is sure to ensure that the game will undoubtedly last until FIFA 14 is released and beyond if you so wish.
 
The modes include; an expanded career mode, be a pro, tournament mode, seasons mode, ultimate team, live fixtures, games of the week and skill games.
 
Each of these modes offers something different with the familiar modes still proving as in depth as ever with each also offering improvements via tweaks here and there and also the newer inclusions such as live fixtures and games of the week offering the opportunity to recreate real life fixtures from the real footballing world. This is yet another neat touch which shows the incredible depth on offer from what must be considered one of the most complete video game sports titles to date.
 
Presentation:
 
The FIFA games have always excelled in how they are presented and FIFA 13 keeps the trend going with some excellent graphics, player likenesses, soundtrack and commentary. Admittedly the commentary can get a little repetitive especially when playing as the same team over and over but it seems that the commentary team have gone to great lengths to be as informative about the clubs and players as possible.

Overall I have to say that everything about FIFA 13 oozes quality and has a real professionally produced feel which does give off a massive feel good factor even before a ball is kicked.
