Anyone playing the demo? It's pretty solid, but the passing is bothering me. It seems to arbitrarily decide who you meant to pass to sometimes.

Also, the AI on your team is still awful on defense.

I love FIfa games. I'll def pick it up but yeah It's always felt like the controls will let you down at times.

Been playing Madden and Fifa for too many years to count. Madden used to be my favorite sports game, although now that I actually think about it, I think Fifa currently is for me. Only bummer every year for fifa is that there us no multiplayer "franchise" mode. Me and a couple of friends always want to have one and are let down every year. I am really surprised they haven't added it, if not for americans, there have to be millions of europeans that want to play together with their clubs. I also wish they would have a multiplayer form of the superstar mode or whatever it is called, i forgot. They had it in World Cup 2010, but the best version of it was Euro 2008 I think. You actually created your own player, and only played with him in the games, and you would get xp based on you well you played. World Cup 2010 dropped it down so that only 1 player could be created on the team, instead of multiple users creating players. Ill take either or, cant have everything I want...

PS: Any of you play Football Manager?

Yeah I've played all of them over the years but actually Pro Evolution is more popular in Europe. It's considered a better game in terms of physics. It just lacks the Licenses. I played PES2012 because I had a Wii at the time and it was 17 bucks brand new. Was a great game. I'm going to buy ps3 FIFA this year so hopefully it's good. I tend to avoid multiplayer because there is always a weakness in the AI and everyone finds it and exploits it. Or makes a dumb formation.

I love the geometry of soccer games. Stringing together neat passes to break down the D. Also a game takes about 12 minutes so it's easy to put down the controller and do other things if you need to.

But definitely I enjoyed playing as just 1 player and trying to influence the game and win man of the match without controlling everyone.

I'm enjoying this game more and more. There are ways to solve the passing problems and I'm starting to figure them out.

Apparently they are adding some new features to the career mode. Some highlights-

http://www.guardian....-ea-sports-news

EA Sports has announced a bunch of new features for Fifa 13. Key among them is the decision to add an international element to the game's in-depth Career mode. Whether you're taking part as a player or a manager, good performances may earn you an international call-up. For managers, that will mean abandoning your domestic side for a new life as a national coach.

To enhance the authenticity of the career element, inexperienced players and young virtual pros can now be sent out on loans from their chosen clubs. "It's another big fan request," says Rutter. "It allows you to pick up experience rather than sitting on the bench and having no fun."

For transfers, the concept of part-exchanges has been added, so if managers can't afford the players they want to buy in, they can offer cash, plus members of their own squad.


Could be cool, but we will have to see how its been implemented

My roommate and I have played 20 straight matches on the same team between yesterday and today. We have tied every single game 1-1. Wtf?

I agree, I would much rather be involved in great buildup play than finish the ball with a header or something like that. Only real scoring I really enjoy are drilling long shots.

The sole fact that they are finally adding the international element to the game is good enough for me to buy it...but not for $60.

I'm pretty disappointed in this game. It has an absurd amount of flaws.

Passing will always let you down. It's ridiculous. I have had games where I had 14+ shots on target and nothing goes in, then they have 2 shots on target and both go in. The penalties they call are just fuging out of control and extremely one-sided. All-in-all, I'm not pleased with this game.

Shooting is hard, but I think I'm getting it. I definitely suggest messing with the sliders, it helps keep the CPU in check. The game seems harder than previous years, I've been switching between Professional and World Class trying to find a good balance.

The career mode is fugin boss though, being able to play world cup games with your player or land a manager job right before a big international tournament is awesome. You get way too many job offers though, if you manage a couple of seasons you will be offered the manager job of nearly every country in the game. Also, why is Arsenal offering me a job in January when they are in 3rd place in the PL?

Fifa Ultimate Team is what is so good about it. I wish Madden's ultimate team was anywhere near that good.
