Frustrating, but brilliant! (demo only)
First thoughts were frustrating, awkward, anger & anger. After a while though, you get passed the tricky defending & the game starts to grow on you.
It's the subtle differences that make a huge difference - quick throw-ins, player movement & impact engine. I found on FIFA 11 I was pretty good at keeping the ball & didn't realise how much I relied on pressing to win back the ball, but on FIFA 12 I have to be even more patient. Every FIFA fan will have to unlearn what they knew on previous FIFA titles & start from scratch. Defending is now an art form & creating chances is so much more satisfying. Well done EA, can't wait for the full version.
