Fifa 13 What To Expect
The New Fifa Is Coming
So if you follow the hubs that I write and know me well you will see that a lot of the hubs that I write about and the ones that seem to get a really good hubscore are the ones about the Console game Fifa. In fact it is pretty much what I'm known for which is a shame as I consider myself an all round gamer.
So Fifa 13 has been announced and I'm not sure about anyone else but the question I keep asking myself is how are they going to improve on Fifa 12, Fifa 12 was such a radically different game from Fifa 11 that surely Ea are going to struggle to make any changes that are going to improve the game. Well they have and this is what we are going to discuss.
Fifa 13 Pre order
How have they improved on the mighty Fifa 12, well firstly they have added a superb First touch control which means that when your player receives the ball in the air what he does with his first touch will dramatically change depending on which player you are controlling, If for example you are controlling Lionel Messi then you will receive the ball via your chest then your foot as though you were covered in glue. If for example you were using Stewart Downing then the ball may wander away from you slightly causing the opponents chance to gain possession. This im told works really well but controlling a poor team means you need to be quite skilled yourself to gain advantage.
The ability to push and pull your opponents has been improved but don't expect to be able to go to overboard as you will fall foul of the referees whistle. The ability to control the ball has been improved and if your using a skillful player you can do all kinds of things with the ball and it will seem like you are Lionel Messi himself.!
When attacking the goal there are now more options then simply pass or shoot as you can play the ball into space or even lob it onto an opponents head. Creating more ways to score is always a good thing.
Are You Buying Fifa 13 On Release Date?
What I Am Hoping For
Although Ea sports hasn't been too open with the details of the game, what is mentioned above is real and is implemented into the game, We are still waiting for extra news to filter down to us before its release later this year. I for one am hoping that in career mode there is the option to manage International teams as I would love to give England a chance of winning something and playing with the lineup and including players I think should be in the England setup.
I would also like to see a vastly improved version of Ultimate Team as this is a great add on that really adds something to the Fifa series but it hasn't dramatically changed over the years even though the game itself has. What we could add I'm unsure of at present but it needs updating if it is to keep its loyal fans.
