This game is everything you want and need a foot ball manager simulation to be. In the game you start out with a certain amount of money and you are left to your own devices to purchase players, train them, discipline them and pay them whatever you see fit based on their in game performance and behavior. This becomes difficult as if you pay the players too much you will begin to lose lots of money but if you pay them too little they will leave your club. The graphics are great and each of the players are extremely detailed and it really brings the game alive with every match you oversee. You should get this game

It is as always, year after year, a good game. It's nothing shocking since then but still a great game of football team management. He has innovated something, adding tools that asked previous players and adding new statistics, more interaction with the computer and more characteristics, but has not been a big change from Fifa Manager 2012. The rest is all very good as always, the gameplay is excellent, yet very neat and easy to use, the graphics are good and the sound is good, the music and sound within games. And that's all, a great game that would be missing one more innovation and a touch of reality could do with "touch of reality" I mean to witness the golden ball delivery, more frequent press conferences, with questions more varied and different effects as cause layoffs, offers ...

Fifa Manager 2013 is good but not enough against his major competitor, every year EA improves this franchise but if they want surpass the other famous game, they need to work harder.
The game still needs a playable 3D mode,the AI is so bad and they CPU players do almost nothing, at least the community is doing all the work with patches but this game needs more support from the developers.
Maybe the future versions of this game can get better, I only recommend to buy this if you are a fan from this franchise and you want to patch the game with a lot of new features made by fans.
