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

FIFA 12

Gameplay 10/10
Graphics 10/10
Realism 9/10
Story (Career Mode etc.) 8/10

Ok. The only real bad point of the game is the lack of possibilities in career mode. I mean u cant rial players loan them for a specific amount of time Eg. 18 Month loan instead of a season long loan or short loan (which i think is two months) Also it would be great to be an International manger. You know go to the premier league games see how well players are doing. U cant do things like hire staff or change sponsors. Hopefully for FIFA 13 You should be able to atleast change sponsors within the real life sponsors already on the game (To avoid copyright)
But other than that i give FIFA 12 a 9.5/10!!!
You should definitly pick up this years FIFA!

 Big improvement on last year!

The developers have ironed out all issues regarding "Pro clubs" this year. The dreaded button lag, random kicking and super pros have all gone making the game mode actually playable.
Career mode is far simpler and easier to navigate, youth players actually develop now.
Tactical defending completely U turns on 11's offering. 11 did essentially everything for you defensively while 12 does the bare minimum and can make the game far more challenging!

A few issues I have with Fifa 12 are:
- Referees/Assistants. EA have tried to make the game realistic and have succeeded in doing so with the officials. While some people may like this I find it incredibly frustrating when blatant fouls are not given and legitimate tackles are impeded. I would much prefer the correct decision to be made every time.
- Every team can play like Barcelona. The AI can get very comfortable in possession and rarely panic when under pressure regardless of the level of opposition

Overall, I give Fifa 12 9/10

Back last year around October and November, when FIFA 12 was still new, all I'd hear during my friends' conversations were, "What Ultimate Team do you have?", "What formation do you use?" or "I had John Terry in a pack!". Naturally, the ridiculous amount of attention it received from my friends coupled with the fact that I had yet to have ever purchased a game from the franchise meant that this was the perfect opportunity to buy FIFA 12. Unfortunately, upon playing the game, I didn't share the same enthusiasm for the game as my friends did. There are multiple reasons for this, but one of the main issues with the game is consistency.

Now, when you first play a match on FIFA 12, you will be shown the values of the defense, midfield and attack of the team you choose to play as in the pre-match screen. For example, Italy may have 81 DEF, 81 MID and 81 ATT whereas Argentina may have 83 DEF, 78 MID and 87 ATT. These values are based on the average overall rating of the players in those positions. Generally, the higher the player's overall, the better they are.

...so where does inconsistency come in to this? Well, in spite of the player's overall, they don't always play to the level that they should. Iker Casillas, for example, is a 90 rated goalkeeper; the best keeper in the game. Sometimes, he plays magnificent and is able to prevent what should be an easy goal for the opponent. Other times, however, it's as if Casillas forgets he's allowed to touch the ball with his hands. When my 90 rated Casillas is conceding against shots that my ten year old cousin could save and my opponent's Helton - that is rated 82 - is making saves comparable to Gordon Banks during the 1966 World Cup, there's definitely a problem.

Likewise, fouls in this game are very inconsistent. There have been times where I have completely taken out Messi with my Ramos, but I haven't received a yellow card. Other times, I may lightly pull on the shirt of a player in possession of the ball and end up getting sent off. The worst is when I tactically defend against a player in my own penalty box, and because this player trips over his own shoe laces, he earns his team a penalty. I - among many others - find this to be extremely frustrating, and EA really need to address this issue in the future FIFA games.

As this review is starting to get a bit long, I suppose I'll finish off with the game's most popular mode: Ultimate Team. Ultimate Team is a mode where you're able to create a team based around any theme i.e. an English team, a team with players from La Liga, etc. and you can use any formation i.e. 4-4-2, 4-2-3-1, 3-5-2, etc. You're given a free starter pack with very basic bronze players and you gradually build your team up. You acquire your players either from buying packs (either from spending a stupid amount of coins (Ultimate Team's currency, earned from playing matches and selling players)) or from purchasing packs with Microsoft Points (which is a waste of money and a great way for EA to rip kids off). While I like the idea behind Ultimate Team, there are a few gripes I have with it.

Firstly, you have to constantly buy contracts and healing cards for your players in case of injury, and they aren't cheap. I can understand the realism behind it, but I work hard for my coins - let me spend them on players! Secondly, in order to acquire coins to get a better team, you have to do a lot of trading via the auction market, which takes time and is really boring. The fact that the coins you earn through matches are usually spent on healing cards and contracts make this really tedious.

Overall, I can't really say I'd recommend FIFA 12 to anyone. If you must own a football game, then maybe. Otherwise, no.
