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.

  • 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 player.
  • 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

Really Big improvement i think on fifa 11. a lot more realistic and despite it being a lot harder, especially defending its all about the realism! the defending just takes a little bit of getting used to. worst thing about it, the songs! but thats not enough to knock it down from a 5 star review

 Utter disappointment

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME! I would rate it zero stars if I could! I am a BIG FIFA fan, have been all my life. I don't know what they were thinking with this version but it is truly awful! I'm not the greatest in the world, but not am I a complete moron, which this game makes you out to be! Don't think you'll get a fair game at all - you won't! You can't attack as it insists on you passing the ball anywhere but where you direct it, and should you ever get through on goal, you'll likely think an open goal is a gimme - it's not, it'll still make you try and hit the corner flag! Defending is atrocious, the new system is completely crass - you will not be allowed to defend, tackle, speed up (attacking or defending!), and 50-50 headers are likely to go 100-0 in the CPUs favour! I bought this game being an avid fan and dismissing negative reviews I'd read, but now I've played, I can't believe I've wasted my money! Shame on EA! No redeeming factors! You have been warned!

 Great Game !!

This is by far the best fifa ever. I began playing fifa 12 thinking "Woooooah"...it was so different to all the other fifa's. the improvement is massive compared to the previous ones.

New features:

Impact engine- It definitely improves the realism of the game but is flawed. You will concede penalties for no apparent reason and there will be some collisions where players react very strangely...Look on youtube it's hilarious.

Gameplay- the shooting is now more realistic. There is a smaller gap in the power bar between hitting a weak shot and smashing one over the bar. I find the movement, passing and playability better as well. It seems to do what I want more. One downside is that I do sometimes feel that the gameplay is a bit repetitive...It doesn't quite have the same unpredictability of real life football. Skill moves are also easier than in past years to learn. They feel more intuitive

Graphics/Presentation: Brilliant graphics, some of the best you'll see on consoles today! game faces are well done although they still look a tad like waxworks. Stadiums and menus all good. Menus are easy to navigate.

Online: This is where it slips up a bit...If you lose connection online it counts it as a loss. This is very frustrating, especially when you were winning 3-0 GRRR! Ultimate team is good but they do seem to try and rake the money in as much as they can. I really don't like this side of it. Head to head seasons is great (a mode in which you have to try and get to division 1 by getting 16 points from 10 games in each division). Friendly matches and 11v11 team games are also great fun!

Offline: I personally feel that manager mode has been improved greatly from previous years. The money issues of previous years also seem better...

 Fifa does it again

From the moment I bought my PS3 I knew the 1st game I was going to buy was Fifa 09 and then I was won over, then came Fifa 10 & Fifa 11 who I thought that's it EA are at there peak with Fifa 11 nothing could beat this in the future. How wrong I was, Fifa 12 delivers a whole new Footballing Experience, I can't describe how fluid and real it feels, the players actually look like the real life stars, with Wayne Rooney for example you can see the difference on his head, after his transplant. Other stars like Joe Hart, Xabi Alonso, John Terry, Carlos Tevez and many more look exactly like they do on the pitch, there has been many changes to Fifa 12 with the introduction of the impact engine, precision dribbling and most noticeable of all tactical defending which I think make's it feel borderline real. Many of the reviews I've seen on here slagging off tactical defending, which I can't understand. But for me Fifa 12 is a must buy for any footballing fan, I wait eagerly for late 2012 when Fifa 13 gets released I wonder what will be changed what will be altered and which will come out on top for game of the year.
