Typo. U said fifa 13. Oh wait sorry this is fifa 13. There was me thinking it was fifa 12 with a different number in the title. Because i swear they both play the same. Have the same outcome. Have pre selected winners befor the game starts. Same glitchy slide tackles.

Fifa 13 is the worst fifa to date

I hope they fix the problem with using your gameface on a virtual pro which somehow makes his arms and legs red

I've had the invisible ball glitch for the first time since that update. I'll admit, the first game it happened, it was funny. The second game, not so much.

I had a problem with manager mode.
At some point in the second season my game will freeze and I need to turn off my xbox. I have tryed it again for a couple of times but it did not help.

Sorry for my bad english

Laziest FIFA game so far. With this many bugs the game should never have been released.

Know what's ironic?

Didn't have 1 issue with FIFA 13, got this update, my ball vanished and the game kept freezing.

EA you can not fix games.

You can not manage games.

Get outside help for fuck sake.

I want an update where once you've finished playing your friend on UT that it doesn't kick you out and you have the option to rematch like Online friendlies, makes more sense!

Hey, at least some of you guys are able to get to the second season. My game freezes while trying to create the second season. Tried reloading like 10 times, still doesn't work. This is ridiculous.
