FIFA 13 for iOS can no longer be downloaded. Take a look at FIFA 14 instead.
FIFA 13 is a detailed and realistic soccer game for iOS, which mirrors the slick gameplay of the console version, and includes many of the same game modes.
As you'd expect if you played the last version, FIFA 13 features a wealth of licensed teams and players. In fact, there are 30 leagues, 500 licensed and more than 15,000 real players crammed into FIFA 13 for iOS.
Game modes in FIFA 13
Several game modes from the console/PC version are present in the iOS version of FIFA 13. You can play a quick match (including training mode and shootout), compete in a tournament, test your tactical skills in Manager mode, and now compete online against other players around the world. Though the online mode is nowhere near as in-depth as the console version of FIFA 13, it is a welcome addition to the mobile version.
Another fun feature of FIFA 13 is the challenge mode. Here you are thrust into a real life match scenario (based on actual games that have taken place) and must try to turn the tie around in your favor.
Look and feel
The graphics in FIFA 13 are much improved on previous mobile versions of the game. Players look more realistic not just in their facial features, but also in the way they move and collide with each other.
In terms of controls, FIFA 13 is quite fiddly, using an on-screen analog stick and four action buttons, which change depending on whether you're attacking or defending. The most significant addition from FIFA 12 is the Skill move button, which allows you to perform dazzling tricks by touching the button then performing touch gestures on the on-screen grid that appears.
More social features
FIFA 13 has more social features than previous versions. Not only can you add friends and then challenge them to matches, but there is an option within the instant replay viewer that allows you to upload the rerun to YouTube. This is perfect for showing off your silky skills and great goals with the world.
With its wealth of game modes, polished graphics and realistic gameplay, FIFA 13 is a must-have for all soccer fans.
