So what makes this game good?
I'm wondering why this is so widely popular. Can someone give me feedback to help me consider if this is a good buy or not?

i agree not tthe best version of FM been playing every fm since 06 and this not the best.. i mean playing a game having 75% ball and pitch control 25+ shots on goal and still loosing 2-0 to a weaker team?? and they get like 3 sots on goal?? slow strikers with like 11 pace out running players with 17 pace?? come on so unrealistic love the set up of the game the online mode alot i love about fm but the AI grinds me solid no matter what u do just so hard to beat even if you are a way more superior team just heart breaking :( really hope they fix it as i'm a huge fan of FM and have been for & years

^what lithicris said! plus you often stuck on MUST RESPOND screen like giving players the numbers for the season...because of some silly rule with how many young and internationaler players you can have in the team! that means u might play the 5th season and out of a sudden u cannot leave the must respond screen because u sold a player or loan a player or whatever stupid reason there is. its super annoying! i had it with dynamo dresden send 2 player on loan and boom cant enter the next screen i stuck on giving numbers(even auto number button does not work). then with dynamo after 3 years get promoted 1st league couldnt leave a MUST RESPOND give team the season number screen! this is unreal.

none of those problems in my game... check my screenshots. i dominated games on my on line seasons & lost the league to porto all the 3 years... wanna know y?because porto have a better team. my point?use the editor & make ur dream team in wolves. even with the best players in ur team u still gonna lose at least 6 in 10 games vs manchester united? wanna know y?... so,its not the players.its not the ME. its ur ureallystic expectations that makes the game bad! have fun

It is a great game like ricardo says

it can be frustrtating sometimes but that football in general no matter how good your team is or what tactics u play there will always be a random or unexpected factor in fm and real life. Always keep trying to evolve your tactics and squad and try watch matches more instead of key highlights cos u can get a better feel of where u need to improve. Most people who say the game is broken blah blah are just stuck in the past and havent evolved with the game. I much prefer the match engine on fm13 because it more challenging and the ai is always trying to find ways of beating your tactic and they go for your weaknesses more.

I'm still playing 2012, I wasn't impressed with the demo. Also put off by the reports that club logos are frustrating to add and I was personally put off by the really weird idea to split the game into two modes.

Generally only buy an FM game every 2-3 seasons though because there are never enough features to justify spending £30 every year on a game that rarely changes, and when it does it ends up focusing on silly things like match engines. It should be focusing on realism and more club logos and shirts.Not to mention getting better real-life scouts, they severely overrate some players and underrate others.

FM has always had the odd problem with AI, in 2012 there were far too many own goals and penalties in the dying minutes seemed to happen too frequently, and from what I hear there are similar AI quirks in this one - some even more weird.

If I were you I would wait for the next one and see what they improve on, then maybe buy that one.

If anyone has meaningful reasons why this is a better game than people have described as opposed to just saying "it's good" or calling people names, I would be delighted to hear your sales pitch. I have been deliberating over whether to buy the game since it came out, but it looks like I'll be buying the next one instead.
