Hey, guess what? FIFA 13 is a massive critical success. The last installment from EA Sports broke all sales record for EA and also managed to do well critically, but it looks like FIFA 13 is going to do even better.

The pre-orders in the US were incredible with the game registering 42% YoY increase for day 1 sales. FIFA 13 sold 353,000 in North America on launch day on the Xbox 360 and PS3, which is a 42 per cent year-on-year increase over FIFA 12. Players across NA played 1.4 million online games on day 1, which was a 35 per cent year on year increase, we reported.

“We’re thrilled that fans throughout North America have embraced FIFA Soccer 13 in such a big way,” said Andrew Wilson, Executive Vice President of EA Sports. “North Americans appreciate a great-playing game and their level of engagement with our game is helping to drive the sport’s popularity in the United States.”

We will be posting our review soon, but check out some of the prominent ones we’ve compiled below, to give you an idea of how good the game is. Let us know what you think in the comments section below.

Verge:

The infusion of real-life soccer developments throughout the game makes the experience come alive; you feel like you’re part of a vibrant, passionate community of soccer fans. FIFA 13′s mechanics bring that human element to the fore, and its connected experiences highlight our shared global identity as participants in the enjoyment of the beautiful game.

Joystiq:

I can say without hesitation that FIFA 13 has topped FIFA 12 while maintaining every improvement that it introduced. The inclusion of surprisingly awesome Kinect features and extra in-game rewards offers new reasons to play and builds upon last year’s solid foundation. Finally, the complete dribbling mechanics and First Touch Control dive into the gameplay equivalent of the ‘uncanny valley,’ offering an unrivaled sense of realism and unparalleled excitement. FIFA 13 is, in a word, superb.

Gamespot:

FIFA Soccer 13 isn’t all that different from last year’s outing, but it still remains the most in-depth, entertaining, and compelling football game out there.

Guardian:

Now PES is approaching its best again, and Fifa 13 needed to be at its stylish zenith to hold on to the top spot. I think it is, and it does. Just. And I think this is because it is not really a pure simulation anymore; within its interconnecting systems of adventure, collection, unlocking and upgrading, Fifa 13 has become something else. Something far more interesting and rewarding.

  • FAN 12

    I cant believe that the reviews take Fifa as the most realistic football game around. Cmon, this aint a simulation at all, players make turns like if they were ice skating, you have no feel of momentum or wheight during your play, if you have an agile player, just go around driblling and perfoming skills and thats that. Scoring from outside the box is ultrageous for anyone who knows and love the sport. FIFA is way too good with marketing and selling their products. I Think people are taking the great player animations for being the simulation, but a football game must be a representation of the sport on what happens inside de field, and Fifa doesnt do that at all. They have make the world to believe that this is “real soccer”. Cmon guys.

    Fifa 13 or all other Fifa games are not a simulation of the sport. The players are way too agile and you have no feel of momentum or so whatever, you just make turns while running like if the players were ice skating and score goals from outside the box like if you were playing some arcade stuff. PES rules this year in terms of simulation, truth must be sad, FIFA looks brilliant in caracthers animations and is flashy like a hoolywood movie, but seriously, this aint football at all!
