Well you get a choice of Benzema, Messi, Hart, Marchisio and I believe Pique.

Those who play FUT know that all 4 of those players combined, don't even make up the worth of Messi. Easy choice basically

Really hoping it's fake, but I saw it on a video. Maybe it's a favourite player thing?

It had better be fake. I don't like using Messi, but he's a nightmare to play against. I'd take Joe Hart and be at a massive disadvantage!

Not sure how reliable(an excerpt from a thread on the EA Forums) but supposedly it's true. However it's a lot better than what I thought it would be.

Apparently you choose that player, can ONLY play OFFLINE, can't sell or discard them, and it's for 10 games.

So basically Messi for 10 games against the CPU.

So who has played the demo? I found it pretty good - but the commentary is poor.

First off, is that Alan Smith doing co-commentary? He's dreadful. Second, they mentioned 'the defender/midfielder/striker on the bench' who they are 'good friends with' and who wants to 'prove themselves after being put on the transfer list' THREE TIMES per GAME. And it's only 3min halves or something.

Overall though, I liked it. Dortmund are pretty good. Van Persie at Arsenal...and he's not that good.

Also, I've come from Fifa 11, where you hold the b button to get a teammate to help track back. How do you do that now?

Arsenal is stackedd, it seams every demo theyre on there for some reason? Though I hate RVP I had to play with him one last time... still think hes douche though.

And secondly the demo does totally say that multiple times during a game, I heard the quote "not happy in the reserves/on the team/missed the transfer window and is in an awkward position" way too many times playing 4-5 games so far... I thought it may have been a fun poke at Ronaldo? :emot-parrot:


Touches feel different and shots are a bit more fancy, haven't noticed too much yet comparing this years demo to fifa 12 playing many many many games last year (500~ versus online), but I'll reserve my judgement for the real game, which without a question I'll be buying!

So RVP has been removed from the demo, and...Giroud is much better! I managed to lose 3-2 to Arsenal with Man City, and he scored two scorchers while setting up t'other for Podolski. Aguero is a beast.

One thing I don't like is how when the opposition attacks, their forwards have loads of room and their midfield breaks forward as a unit. I'm yet to find the right toggling of tactics that will let my lot do the same - I'm left with shots from range or deflections.

I like how it's much more difficult to score from crosses / corners.

I f'ing hate K-P Boateng. Went up 2-0 with 10 minutes left as Dortmund only to have him score 3 goals completely unopposed. Every time he got close to a defender they'd back up.

Made myself an "nPower 1 League" squad. Very cheap and inexpensive and will probably beat most teams in the first few days.

Yes. But it's very easy to hate it though. Sweaty bastards with pace teams are hella annoying.

I hate it on NHL games but like it on FIFA. Go figure! But I only play the CPU, so I wouldn't know about fat sweaty men...

Considering the updates to the demo they've done, would it kill them to put Cazorla on Arsenal? Having to use Arteta and Diaby is killing me :lol:

Those of you who have it. Is it worth buying? I have never owned a FIFA game before so I think I should probably get it but I want to know if its any good first.

Pretty fun game. Career mode is very unique and realistic. UT is fun as always. The game play is amazing I find.

Definitely worth it.

FIFA and Madden are two of the best sports games to play, it's as if EA doesn't care about NHL games as much.

FIFA is always a great time, especially if you're going to play with a couple of friends.

just like with other fifas when you player versus against someone they'll be using barca/real madrid/man u/chelsea/ etcetc 99% of the time. same thing in nhl13, you play versus 9/10 times the other dude uses canucks... lame. time to find a decent team that isnt over used in fifa13.

So I was playing Ultimate Team...won the game 4-0...but I had a player injured at the whistle. The game makes me sub him - even though the game is finished - and then won't finish, just replaying highlights endlessly. Only one option - forfeit match, making me lose out on loads of coins, a match on all those players' contracts, and future income too. God damn EA. :mad:

If you're playing H2H seasons, then Dortmund. Athletic Bilbao (even if they're playing crap in reality).

I hate playing with Celtic. Just because they're so poor in FIFA games.


I'm up for playing people when I finally get the game, which might be 2 or 3 weeks away (depending on the financial situation).

I'm not very good. I either hammer someone 5-0, or lose 5-0. There is no middle ground with me :lol:
