A Huge Letdown,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: FIFA Soccer 13 - PlayStation Vita (Video Game)
I have been a huge fan of fifa soccer series for a long long time. This Fifa 13 on Vita is just a terrible letdown.
I got this on the release date (also the Xbox version, which is much better) with the expectation of finding something new. However, quickly I understood that there was NOTHING new in the game. Actually, all parts of this game were copied from the Fifa 12(Fifa soccer) on Vita -- The interface was exactly the same, the menu exactly was the same, the engine was exactly the same, and all other things were exactly the same. EA just updated some players' and teams' rating data. I was really not able distinguish it from Fifa 12 on Vita during the playing process.
Moreover, this version is extremely laggy and buggy. Sometimes the loading before a match can be painfully long, and sometimes the screen frozee and I have to restart the application and restart the match all over(this is very frustrating when I am playing career mode). More frustrations come when I encounter endless bugs. For example, I noticed that there is a bug on career mode, when I sign a new player, there is a posibility that the contract length is NEGATIVE 2013 or NEGATIVE 2014 years (although you set the lenght to be 3 or 4 years). Players with such a ridiculous contract will disappear automaticly at the end of the first season and thus I end up losing my player and my funds in angry(I don't even get a chance to negotiage a new contract).
All in all, Fifa 13 on Vita is just a failure. If you haven't buy it yet, probably the better idea for you is to skip this -- get the Xbox version and play this game on your Xbox, or wait one more year (although I really doubt fifa 14 on Via will be better if EA keep their bad attitude toward this).
