Don't buy this,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: FIFA Soccer 13 - PlayStation Vita (Video Game)
Other reviewers were right. This is pretty much Fifa Football with just updated kits and new team rooster. Everything else is the same. Even the commentary is 97% no change at all. I play Liverpool and Joe Allen's and Raheem Sterling's name aren't even included in the commentary. Player stats are updated realistically; but this is not the reason for getting a new game. Game play may have been tweaked a little: new AI defense does its job better - giving a more satisfying challenge at the world-class level of difficulty. But this feels more like getting bugs fixed rather than genuinely added playing elements. Forty Dollars for NOTHING. Shame to EA, really.
Got to let the world know that this is a complete sham. You can't do this to consumer and pretend nothing happened. EA just want to make easy money. They got no scruple. Not going to buy a footy game from this company again.
[Update]: After about a week or so of play, I can truly maintain my original opinion. The only genuine addition, IMO, is a reworked free kick system. The wall line-up look more realistic now. You also can implement free kick strategies with more variety. Anyway, it adds little to the game play, as you don't want to tryout new stuff and risk loss opportunity when you are awarded free kick. That's it. Everything else is still the same. Game look smoother because of better frame rate, i.e. "getting the bugs fixed." All graphic being the same.
I notice that people don't really appreciate negative comments on Amazon. They all want to see 4 or 5-star review about a product. I always find this amusing. Trust me, negative comments save you money. When 15 people (out of 17) say the game sucks, it does.
Nonetheless, I admit that for newcomers who have never played a football/soccer game on Vita, this can still be very entertaining. Just like some wise men have said: "Ignorance of the past can obscure the reality of the present."
