'The Wii version of FIFA 13 is identical to FIFA 12'

The Wii version of Fifa 13 seems to be almost completely identical to Fifa 12, apart from its box-cover and logo, Nintendogamer concluded after laying the two games side-by-side.

When a next-gen console releases, it's not surprising developers pay less attention to versions of the previous generations. Nintendogamer: "In the past, games like PES on Wii haven’t changed too much over the years. For the most part though, at least Konami has bothered to change the front-end and menus to make it feel different, to make it feel like someone’s actually taken the time to bother with it and at least give Wii owners some sort of respect, to at least realise we aren’t idiots and aren’t fooled quite that easily."

In Fifa 13 there seem to be almost no changes whatsoever, when comparing with similar screens from Fifa 12. This is insulting, considering Fifa 12 still sold pretty well so late in the console's cycle. Fifa still configures often in the Wii top 10 software monthly sales. Though the numbers are not as high as its PS3 and Xbox 360 counterparts, we still observe a solid audience. An audience who will feel dissapointed and ripped-off, when they realize fifa 13 is the same game.

Nintendogamer didn't say however whether EA made any changes to the gameplay in Fifa 13 on Wii. Take a look at the screens below, do you spot any differences?

That's why competition is so important. I swear Fifa pulled the same thing when the xbox 360 was released.
lol wow.
and thus, spot the difference was born
This is why you research games before buying.

lol The research is simple.

Do not buy the Wii version.
Yeah I was actually pretty keen to check this out on Wii U but after seeing this.....staying away!

Complete lack of effort on EA's side. But the Wii U will have the latest and best version of FIFA, so like on ps3, xbox 360 and PC.
