If you like high octane thrills and spills in your footy games, a thrilling 4-3 win, a sending off and a penalty in the last minute, the feeling that the match could go either way which makes you want to play again straight after, then don't buy FIFA 12, it is anything but fun to play. . .
I'm currently three games away from completing my first season on manager mode and I'm seriously considering calling it quits and going back to FIFA 11. Every single match, and I mean EVERY SINGLE MATCH is just that much of a slog to get the ball in the back of the net that it is genuinely infuriating to play. 1-0 or 0-0, that's pretty much how every game ends up, there are no thrills and spills, there is no fun, you can't score amazing goals, you can barely get a shot on goal for all the blocking that goes on in and around the oppositions area, it just feels like too much hard work to enjoy (unless you put the difficulty level on Amateur or Semi Pro, but then there is no challenge whatsoever unless you enjoy your footy games to be a doddle!?).
It just plain and simply annoys the hell out of me FIFA 12 does, that is all.
