FIFA 13 3DS review

Comment on site articles.

The beautiful game takes shape on 3DS

While it was nice to see a half-decent FIFA game on the 3DS last year, it's safe to say it was a little shonky and lacking in gloss. With ropy animation and basic menus, FIFA 12 3DS disappointed at times. FIFA 13 3DS isn't quite up there with its console big brothers yet, but it's certainly another small step forward for the series on Nintendo's handheld.

Do you have to pay the players for every match?Its to easy to get and keep money if you don't and is there good prices to buy players?I don't want to be able to buy Messi for only 20M

I've learnt to just avoid Fifa games, on 3DS. Been really disappointed and pale extremely in comparison to their counterparts.

Exactly this. Fifa is a game that relies on online gameplay, just like Call Of Duty

This is appalling. For EA to not include an online mode, after all the criticism for not including it last year (and considering Pro Ev had it) is unacceptable! Its laziness like this that makes me understand illegal downloads. Why would you pay the same for this as FIFA 13 on PS3/XBOX and be excluded from the best part .... online!!! Yet hundreds of kids will prob buy it expecting it to have online and be disappointed. Read the back of the packaging and it says some vague nonsense about 11 a side local multiplayer! USELESS!!!

Wow, no online AGAIN? Considering even the iOS version has online, this is so poor!
