FIFA 11 was the first title that converted me from PES. Although i wasn't a massive fan it was fun to play.
So i was extremely let down by FIFA 12. They have changed things to a game that didn't need fixing. The whole new defensive system is pointless. I have played this for hours and still haven't got used to it. players run around you like your not even there and when you do manage to get a foot on the ball, the computer player still keeps the ball and knocks your player to the floor.
Also, attacking and passing is worse. No matter how long i wait for them, the wingers never run forward, even when i change tactics or move player tokens further up the pitch, so it feels like 2 attackers against 8 defenders. When i point directly to a player to pass, the cpu seems it would be funny to pass it in completley the wrong direction.
EA try to change so many aspects every year the it makes what is claimed to be 'real' football completely unrealistic and un-enjoyable. Don't waste your hard earn't money like i did.
