FIFA 13 (Xbox 360)
Advantages: International Management makes carrer mode more interesting, Skill games also helps
Disadvantages: Be A Pro Gone, Not too much change year on year.
Alot has happened in the last 12 months in the football world. Manchester City are English Champions, Chelsea claim there first ever Champions League Trophy, Spain are European Champions again, but sadly not alot has changed on Fifa 13.
Yes there are new features, but sadly some of the good points of the last game have been lost.
The Be A Pro feature from FIFA 12 has now gone, where you create a player and build him up through the ranks of your favourite club. now if you want to feature in a game you still can but with a player rating of 99, as you can set everything to 99 skill level again like earlier editions of fifa.
When you get into playing a match the OSD is a recycled Fifa 12 OSD.
Commentary again is repetitive, for instance every Arsenal match I've played, I hear about the 1989 title decider, again.
However there are some positives that have come out of the new game, better first touch from players in game. Some players keep the ball, less skilled players will lose the ball or struggle to keep it near them, which gives a more realistic experience.
Also the introduction of Skill games in the Practice arena has made waiting for a match more interesting and also gives a better guide for controlling the game.
In career mode there is the introduction of a International manager mode which runs alongside club manager, and depending on the manager rating depends on the contract offer from the international team.
Fianll there is the introduction of a shop, you earn coins from the actions you do on the game which can be used to buy classic kits, footballs, celebrations etc. Alot like the shop in earlier FIFA's
But overall nothing much has changed year on year, they have brought back some old features, kept what's worked, added some new promising changes. but i can't help seeing that it is a recycled FIFA 12.
Summary: A recycled FIFA 12, however some promising features and some good points lost
