Default FIFA 13 Demo

The demo came out the other day, has anyone else tried it yet?

I personally love the feel of it. FIFA12 felt very animation heavy like you were just moving from animation to animation but this one is so smooth. It feels a lot more like you are controlling a person. The heading is MUCH better and you can now actually position yourself to fight for the ball.

The gameplay seemed a bit more arcadey but it is hard to judge until you see it in action on the leagues.

Some nice additions are that they changed the pro clubs to be like NHL where there are seasons and monthly champions.

All in all, I was really impressed with it and the game made NHL13 feel really choppy. I can't wait for it to come out and I will definitely be buying it on release day.

I freakin' love it!! Played a bunch of games yesterday and loved the feel, how smooth it was and so on. NHL13 is going to take a back seat in a about 2 weeks from now for sure.

I wasn't going to bother with the demo since I'm buying it regardless. Good to know it's looking really nice though.

Yeah, I wasn't really amped or anything for the demo but with the EASHL crapping out on me, I had some spare time to put towards it.

I can't really say much about whether or not it has flaws but the feel alone makes it a big improvement. My biggest gripe with 12 was the animations and that is completely gone with this one so far.

They were supposed to really work on the first touch animations since it's near impossible to bring the ball down unless you're wide open. Heard that really turned out well.

Yeah, I had one where my player brings it down with his knee and it looked like a real play you see. Also had one where my player pulled the ball softly down right onto his foot (rather then it always hitting you and bouncing 1 or 2 feet away). He brought it down with possession... hard to explain but it just felt and looked so nice in the game.

Like I said, the game just feels smooth. Best way to describe it.

Yeah I'm loving how it plays, probably won't get it until the price goes down a bit during the holidays, but the game is awesome.
