First of all i think it is a disgrace that EA is marketing FIFA13 as a new product when in fact it is (almost) the same product as FIFA12. In my book the difference between Fifa12 and Fifa13 is more of a v1.0 to v1.1 upgrade. Anyway us fans will keep on buying it anyway since we want updated squads and of course the online market always moves towards the latest version so it will be less and less players to play against in Fifa12. Right? True up until now, but no more.
The worst part of this game however is not that it is copied too much from Fifa12, it is that it is so EXTREMELY buggy. For example, in 1 days playing I had to force quit 3 times and restart. This is just ridiculous, it is an absolute disgrace that a big player like EA would release a product that has so poor quality. Hey EA have you ever heard about QA? No you haven't, go google that.
Those bugs that requires force quit are of course the most annoying (by the way all 3 times where at unrelated places), but there are more. So many more bugs...
Example: I'm about to play the Fifa online league as an English BPL team. When the stadium is loaded i suddenly see that i play as Barcelona, 1 second later the game exits back to the main menu: "Lost connection". Another time, I choose an international team, after I clicked team management before the game I see that the squad is actually totally incorrect, not even 1 player is correct. I press back, Fifa prompts "Saving your changes", automatically. Even though i didn't make any changes. Theres no end to the amounts of bugs in this game and heads should roll at EA for releasing this piece of crap.
Have played FIFA series on XBOX since 03 and then the more recent years on PS3, but this was the last time i bought a game from EA. You're not getting 80 bucks from be again next year.
EA SPORTS you're an embarrassment to everything about good software development. Please support competitor products instead, get this lazy arrogant giant off his feet.
Ans yes i know EA sports will release bug patches later and I don't claim that the software should be bug free, but at this level of quality this release is nothing else than a spit in the users face.
