New Video Game Looks Way Too Familiar

New Video Game Looks Way Too Familiar, Most big sports titles don't change much from year to year, but this one takes the cake. EA blasted for selling the same FIFA game two years in a row, Think Madden doesn't change enough year to year? Then you'll get a real kick out of FIFA 13 for the Nintendo Wii.

Released on September 27th for nearly every video game system available, the latest iteration of EA's soccer sim has already sold over 4 million copies. Wii owners, however, were miffed to find out that their version of the game is nearly identical to last year's model, FIFA 12.

How close are the two games? Close enough that Nintendo Gamer broke them down and found that, wow, yeah, it's pretty much the exact same thing.

Really all that's been updated are the player rosters, as the gameplay modes, graphics, menus, and even play-by-play chatter are unchanged from FIFA 12. But that didn't stop EA from slapping a 13 on the box and charging a full $50 for the game.
