FIFA 12 brings to the pitch the game-changing new Player Impact Engine, a physics engine built to deliver real-world physicality in every interaction on the pitch. Experience the way real-world footballers challenge each other for the ball, win possession, and test each other physically. Enjoy an infinite variety of natural and believable outcomes in every collision. Players feel more resilient, push and pull during the fight for possession, and recover from light challenges more easily.

Revolutionary gameplay innovations make FIFA 12 deeper and more engaging. All-new Precision Dribbling creates a higher fidelity of touch on the ball for better control in tight spaces, more time to make decisions on attack, and more control over the pace of the game. Innovations in attack are balanced by a re-designed defending mechanism, making it as skilful and meaningful as real-world football. With all-new Tactical Defending, positioning and intercepting passes are as important as tackling. Tactics and timing are crucial. Plus, CPU players have been infused with Pro Player Intelligence, a self-awareness that enables them to behave and make decisions based on their own skills and tendencies, and gives them the aptitude to understand the strengths and weaknesses of teammates in every situation.

Introducing EA Sports Football Club - the heartbeat of FIFA 12 - a live service connecting players to the real-world game with fresh, new content all the time, enabling them to support their favourite club and connect and compete with their friends, rivals and millions of other players around the world. Additional features will be revealed in the months ahead.

New presentation: Matches now have a real-world broadcast look and feel. Dramatically improved lighting, more authentic crowds, and a new default camera make every game feel special.

Easier navigation: Redesigned menu system for fast and easy navigation, featuring customizable Main Menu based on arena player, Virtual Pro and favorite club.

Complete authenticity: Over 500 officially licensed clubs and more than 15,000 players.

  • Player Impact Engine: Two years in development, the new physics engine is built to deliver real-world physicality in every interaction on the pitch. Experience an infinite variety of natural and believable outcomes in every contact. Players feel more resilient on the ball, push and pull during the fight for possession, and recover from light challenges more easily, preserving their natural momentum.
  • Pro Player Intelligence: CPU players have been infused with self-awareness and aptitude, enabling them to make decisions based on their own skills as well as the strengths and attributes of their teammates. Players who possess exceptional vision, for example, will see opportunities for through balls that other players won't. Real Madrid's Kaká will be more likely-and quicker-to pick out a run from a teammate farther away than a player with poorer vision. Additionally, teams will vary their attack based on the strengths of their players on the pitch, and the weaknesses of opposing players, creating a more authentic experience and greater variety of matches.
  • Tactical defending: Fundamentally changes the approach to defending by placing equal importance on positioning, intercepting passes and tackling at the right moment. Tactics and timing are crucial.
  • Precision dribbling: Enjoy new ways to take on opponents, more time on the ball to make decisions, and complete control of the pace of the game. Utilize close dribble touches in tight spaces, on the wings, and even while fending off an opponent.
  • True injuries: The Player Impact Engine monitors contact between players in real-time, analyzing the force of collisions and the impact on bodies

 Defensive nightmare!!!!!

| | See all MrFlinch's reviews (1)

The Defence system was not broken so i see no need in trying to fix it!!!! You can only change it back for offline modes. Made this highly anticipated game completley un-enjoyable!!! Save your money and stick with fifa 11

 They Shoot! They Score!

If you like football games where you just hold down a button and let the computer do the work (like the reviewer below does) then DO NOT buy this game. However if you want to be part of this ultimate footballing experience then make the purchase!
EA Sports have made a phenomenal game, taking another huge leap into making Fifa the dominant game. They took a risk this year by changing the feel of the game in the way you defend and attack. Did the risk pay off? MASSIVELY! The gameplay feels amazing and you have to do a lot more work and concentrate fully to earn a victory. It's a bit tricky at first, but once you're used to it you'll be playing it non stop!

Season mode has been revamped and is a lot better and transfer deadline day is great!
Online mode has also been changed and seems a lot better. Haven't come across any quitters yet which is always good!
One of the most impressive additions is the 'Support your club' feature where you gain points for everything you do on the game. You can then view where you rank on a table to other players.
Challenge mode is also a new and enjoyable feature. You'll get given challenges, for example... You'll be Arsenal, 1-0 down against Spurs with so many minutes to go and you have to win by 2 goals. If you do it, you get the points!
All that along with little things that have been added, like quick throw ins, drop ball, seeing every substitute stood on the touchline when making more than 1 and slightly better graphics makes this a simply sublime football game! GET IT!

Ok we can all say FIFA 11 was the nuts RIGHT!!
so this year had to be even better WRONG!!
what has EA done to this game, i have played FIFA from the start. when it was on the mega drive and so on, all i can say is this year is a let down. Ive turned the new defending off cos it is rubbish and gone back to legacey settings which turns it back to fifa 11 with the added extras of fifa 12. Wished i saved my money.
online well if i could get on that would be a start, when i do get on to play my m8s it dont connect
shame!!!!
EA i hope you read this and other comments and get a patch done fast, better luck next year

 I Cannot understand the critics.....
