FIFA 13 offers up plenty of multiplayer excitement, allowing you to play co-operatively or competitively (or both) with up to five friends offline and up to 21 fellow fans via PlayStation Network.
All the fun is enhanced when you're facing living, breathing opponents or setting up jaw-dropping shots for your best mate to finish, and if you fancy yourself as a fantasy football expert there's also the Ultimate Team option.
Ultimate Team lets you pit your predictive powers (not to mention your FIFA 13 skills) against other players around the world. Choose your dream squad from over 8,000 players, design a kit, pick a formation and watch as real-world performance affects your team's ranking. Like a real manager, you'll have to trade and transfer players to keep morale high and ensure success, and you can earn extra rewards and improve your position by competing against other fans worldwide.
Brilliantly, Ultimate Team even allows you to keep an eye on your progress via the official website at ea.com/uk/football/fifa/fifa-ultimate-team – so the game of your life need never end.
