As we know that the continuation of the FIFA series from EA Sport for iOS has been released last week. If you’ve played FIFA 12 previously, you would have been familiar with this game and already know how exciting this game. But I think both who have played the previous version and that has never been tried at all, obliged to have FIFA 13 For iOS because the sequel is equipped with new features that will make the gameplay more exciting and lead to addiction. What are the new features?
When I see a game on the App Store, which I first spotlight is a screenshot, and then whether the games are universal or not(for iPhone & iPad), the name of the last game developers and game size itself. The difference is visible from the four categories that I mentioned just now between FIFA 12 and FIFA 13 for iOS. First, this latest sequel was made for both iPhone and iPad. Meanwhile, the second difference is that the total size game swelled to 1.35 GB. This size would bigger among other mobile games.
In this review, I will not focus on how to play the game but will more specifically discuss what the differences are provided in FIFA 13 for iOS. If you’ve never played this game, do not worry because it provided a very comprehensive tutorial and can be easily learned. The first obvious difference in the game was an extra 1 new buttons to perform skill moves when we attack and call 2nd defender when defending.
Skill moves are used by tapping on the button then you can swipe to the left, right, up and down based on the grid that appears on the screen. Of course, many different movements you can make depends on the type of swipe you do. Not just that, swiping motions can also be combined. For example, to dribble the ball while turning the body 360 degrees is done by swiping skill move button to the right and then down. While the call 2nd defender only 1 person will surround the ball carrier with 2 of your player.
Usually before getting into the game, provided some tips and tricks that can be used as long as the game progresses in a way only include pictures and explanations on FIFA 12. It is different when looking at FIFA 13 for iOS, where a short animation will be demonstrated how to use the “skill” in the game. Furthermore, I can say that FIFA 13 for iOS has the approach to social games better. This is seen in the online multiplayer feature that does not exist before.
To play you have to make an Origin account first. Divided even this mode 2, ie quick match and online friendlies. Quick match course EA servers will randomly determine the opponents play fellow you are playing this game. My experience, not hard to find opponents to play. Less than 1 minute I’ve found my tandem. While Friendlies Online is a multiplayer feature with your friends. To play this mode you must have first friend on the Origin platform.

Furthermore, EA added a Tournament mode in FIFA 13 for iOS. Here you can play league or non-league of famous leagues all over the world. This non-league competitions like the FA Cup at the English Premiere League, or the Spanish Cup in Spain. What about gamepad, features seeded in FIFA 12? In FIFA 13 for iOS, Gamepad integrated into the game and can be found in Quick Match mode. I think the improvement is also done with a gamepad EA, because the lag has been reduced.
So far, FIFA 13 for iOS is the best football game I’ve ever played on the iPhone and the iPad. With the addition of several new features and improvements here and there, I highly recommend that you upgrade to FIFA 13 for iOS. As for y
