    Me too. The online side of things only unleashes 'the monster' in me /Dexter.

    I really enjoyed last season's career mode. Okay, it was far from perfect but kept me entertained for a good 6 months or so. Looking forward to the improvements mentioned to CM as well as seeing how the adjustments to the AI turn out, as for me, this has been one of the biggest issues with the series since its 2007/2008 refresh.

    Nice. Can see myself 'snacking' on these games when I don't want to go full-on online.

    Also showcases the fluid and dynamic physics and animations that have taken Fifa's gameplay forward leaps and bounds this gen.

    Bit early for the Ox no?

    Hopefully he doesn't get the 'Madden curse' like Jack did

    More likely to get the "Barcelona DNA" curse.

    Bit of a joke putting him on the cover tbh. He had a few good games for Arsenal last season, nothing more. But hey he plays for Arsenal and is young and English so he must be amazing.

    They've taken PES's training challenges and put their own Virtua Tennis style spin on them, the 'Barca/Spain' style piggy in the middle looks cool, the others also look a lot of fun admittedly.

    About the 'fluid physics and animations' that people always say FIFA has, not wanting to troll, but they are mainly just visual and do not advance gameplay that much. When the player individuality stats start having a more pronounced and discernible effect on the pitch like they always have in PES, then maybe. PES' apparent "clunkyness" and toughness to get into is an attempt to simulate human movement, 'footplanting', inertia and momentum while running with and without the ball, as well as stat differences.

    FIFA's apparent 'fluidity' makes for a nicer looking and more pick up and play 'game', but is really cosmetic and aesthetics based. PES's ball control (first touch), dribble accuracy, agility/accl stats actually make the players feel technically different, but too many FIFA players feel the same with individuality minimized or toned down in the quest for 'fluid' animations. The 'personality plus' thing was an admission from FIFA's developers and tried to address this by making players more unique but it didn't really work; for all the bashing and grandstanding PES is still superior in that *crucial* aspect.

    Its good to occasionally check out the competition now and again for tactful comparisons.

    It seems as if FIFA doesn’t get much criticism because of its fluid animations, I’m surprised how its generally seen to be a flawless, perfect football game. It has its merits and innovations, and a measure of fun. Comparing the 2, imo PES is a deeper game than its made out to be, and it still manages to be fun as well.

    When you break down the mechanics of a football game into its technical aspects: statistic implementation of player individuality which should result in pronounced and discernible player differences; varied first touch and ball control depending on stats and ball physics; the effect of physical player movement in terms of footplanting, momentum, inertia; artificial intelligence in terms of players creating space and making intelligent runs or functioning as a defensive unit; and depth and flexibility in strategy and tactics that have tangible effects in game - PES has these in abundance, although its obviously not flawless either.

    Because PES doesn’t have the same level of perceived fluidity in animation tech that FIFA has people generally dismiss the unglamorous things above that PES does very well.

    Both have a mixture of arcade and sim aspects, but if you ignore any sim leanings both games are still fun in pick up and play sessions when you have mates around with a few beers etc.


    Regarding FIFA 13, I wonder if the skill games include live multiplayer in them, it would make it even more fun trying to beat someone’s score or time as you’re both working on different sides of the pitch, or optionally to take turns.

    Also...hopefully having AOC on the cover will mean all his stats will be buffed up as that's what usually happens in one extent or another for the cover stars.

    Tbf freedumb's point does seem salient and well put, if a little laboured.

    freedumbs point is good. However i think this is what EA are trying to finally change with 13.

    however i bet more people complain that Djimi Traore can't chest the ball down, pirouette, kick it up and volley it in from 30 yards like messi can, or that senderos keeps getting bullied off the ball by drogba.

    theres no pleasing some people

    The only thing that worries me is the statement about dribbling 'In FIFA 12 you could dribble just by changing direction, in FIFA 13 this won’t be possible anymore!'

    Act like a dumbshit and they will treat you as an equal

    My 360 seems to be damaging discs, so I'm thinking of getting this digitally this year off XBL.

    Does anyone know if it releases on the day and at what price?

    It's going to be one of those early releases if you get it digitally, isn't it?
