FIFA 13 is a scaled-down version of the legendary soccer game for Symbian mobile phones.

The Symbian version of FIFA 13 is far less developed than the iOS version of FIFA. It has a distinctly retro feel to it, and feels more like playing the early FIFA games that came out on 16-bit consoles - though obviously with the disadvantage of being on a small screen with no control pad!

FIFA 13 is a pretty complete game, allowing you to compete in many leagues from around the world. There are more than 250 club and national teams, and all are officially licensed, so the player names and characterizations are real. There are several game modes, including multiple championships (Serie A, Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga, etc.), as well as the 'Be a Pro' mode, in which you take control of a one footballer.

There are plenty of tactical options in FIFA 13 for Symbian, from the ability to pick your team, right down to who should take free kicks and corners during a match.

The biggest problems with playing FIFA 13 on Nokia phones are the graphics and controls. The 2D graphics are uninspiring and there's little detail to distinguish one player from another.

Artificial intelligence is weak, meaning that gameplay can get boring and predictable. The control system is very fiddly, and more primitive than other versions of FIFA 13, giving you the feeling that your options on the pitch seem very limited.

There aren't many good soccer games for Symbian. FIFA 13 is certainly one of the most comprehensive but playing matches is quite a dull affair.
