FIFA 13 continues to build on the recent run FIFA has been on since 10 with great gameplay where new features are integrated without making it feel alien to prvious users. The 1st touch system works very well it feels natural and adds weight to the player you control skill players such as Neymar / Ronaldo / Messi etc are noticably different to use compared to say Defoe / Torres and makes you think about what you are going to do when receiving a pass. The tactical defending returns but whereas last year year it felt to diffcult to master and overly punished this year it fits into gameplay more seamlessly. Season mode now includes opportunity to manage internationally if job is offered. Before matches you take part in skill challenges such as hitting targets with long pass to upgrade whilst game is loading.
Other returning modes include Be a Pro, online matches and arena mode to practice free kicks etc
Ultimate team remains as addictive as ever and slightly expanded to include more formations and postions within ultimate team.
Fifa also set weekly challenges based on real results. Potentially making an endless game.
From a negative point of view the menu screens are still painful to navigate and the background crowds in the stadiums look like they have been life from Fifa 07 on PS 2
