Product Description

Platform: PlayStation 3 | Edition: Standard Edition

Manufacturer's Description

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.

Key Features:

  • 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 players on the pitch, and the weaknesses of opposing players, creating a more authentic experience and greater variety of matches.
  • Tactical Defending—Re-designed defending mechanism fundamentally changes the approach to defending by placing equal importance on positioning, intercepting passes and tackling at the right moment. Tactics and timing are crucial.
  • Precision Dribbling—Enjoy new ways to take on opponents, more time on the ball to make decisions, and complete control of the pace of the game. Utilize close dribble touches in tight spaces, on the wings, and even while fending off an opponent.
  • EA SPORTS Football Club—For the first time ever, everything within FIFA 12, and against friends, is measured in a meaningful way. Every match matters, all season long. Earn experience points and level up to build status. Track friends, challenges and status through the web. Share and compare accomplishments and spread the news on social channels like Facebook. Plus, real-world storylines will drive content. Gamers will relive crucial real-world football events through regular challenges so that FIFA 12 will look, feel and play like the real-world season.
  • Support Your Club—A central experience in EA SPORTS Football Club that enables fans to represent their club and compete against rival clubs in everything they do in FIFA 12. Earn club points and lift your club higher in the Support Your Club League Tables or help them avoid relegation. Virtual league tables are reset each week to create new challenges, renewed rivalries, and fresh storylines.
  • True Injuries—The Player Impact Engine monitors contact between players in real-time, analyzing the force of the collision and impact on the body to detect real injuries, creating a deeper more challenging Career Mode. Manage new types of injuries and the risk of sending a player onto the pitch who isn’t fully healed.
  • New Presentation—Matches now have a real-world broadcast look and feel. Dramatically improved lighting, more authentic crowds, and 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.

I'd not played any of the FIFA series since '98 and was quickly reminded as to why.
Sure you can argue the animations have improved, although considering 14 years have past, they're not particularly impressive.
Game play is the big let down, I've read about all these fancy new systems and controls as the years have past but when it comes down to it, I was putting in cricket scores in after three matches. Half a dozen matches later, I was resorting to getting my players sent off and taking on the opposition with the goalie to try and entertain myself. All this using the same old 'tactics' I used a decade and a half ago.

I found FIFA12 somewhat disappointing, although thankfully it was purchased as part of a bundle for a fraction of the £40 price tag.

I can only suggest that if you already own a version of FIFA from the last few years don't bother with this one. Essentially, you're buying a more up to date squad list and marginally better animation.

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.

I worship FIFA games. I already have FIFA 10 and I also experienced FIFA 11 gameplay and so I was waiting to put my hands on FIFA 12 when the price was affordable. Unfortunately I have to say that this is from far the worst game I have ever played in PS3. For those who have experienced FIFA 10 and FIFA 11 the expectations were way high and weren't achieved.

When we start the game the menu it's childhood, it's not very intuitive and it's all messy. But what I think it's worst is the online mode. I know that the speed is influenced by our wireless connection and that's reasonable, but the game crashes a lot on online mode. Sometimes I have to force shut down the PS3 in order to play on. Talking about speed, the game takes a lot of time to start. It gives the illusion that it is too heavy for the computer...sorry...for the PS3 I have.

Bottom line, I had high hopes for FIFA 12 and got it all wrong. One of the my worst buys. Next time I'll try to experience the gameplay before buying.

First off, games which require online registration for multiplayer content get a star removed from the off. I know it's now the norm, especially among the 'big' titles that arive yearly, but I'm not a fan and find it second only to DRM in the list of most intolerable modern gaming features.

Then there's recurring problems. The defending improvements unfortunately detract from the game. Career mode once again crashes with frequency. Online mode STILL lags to the extent not befitting a series which sells so much worldwide. A longer review could elaborate on why the three years previous to this are by far more worthy of replay but I'll take a leaf out of EA's book and put a little less effort into it.

I'll start with the big (and unfortunately limited) positives:
As an offline football game, the gameplay is fantastic. Passing, shooting and dribbling are smooth and realistic, love it. The characteristics and strengths of players are mirrored well, and overall control of your 11 players is better than ever. I love the fact that it is harder, as i used to be able to win a season on Legendary, and I'm far from a great FIFA Player. To top it off the graphics of the actual football gameplay are flawless.
For those reasons, it is hard to rate this game lower then 50% - because it is a decent football game.

Now come the flaws.

1. Online - My main problem with Fifa games is that they are always delayed significantly by poor connection. I have a online wired connection, giving me 100% signal strength. Yet every single online game I have ever played On Fifa 12 has experienced some degree of 'lag'. Games like MW2 and Assassins Creed always run smoothly online, so why doesn't FIFA? Online play is slow and unrealistic, so much different to offline, and I don't pay £40 for half a game.

2. Career mode - Transfers! I bought Fifa 12 in Hope of playing a season similar to the one I was following on TV. But by the time I had reached the end of the first 'Transfer Deadline', David Silva was at Arsenal, Rooney was at FC Bayern, and Higuain + Cambiasso + Sjneider had decided to move to Man Utd? Felt like I was playing a fake season, but that may be just me. And a very small complaint, it rained 4/5 matches all season? I know we have a lot of rain here, and I know Fifa are trying to show off their Graphics, but it completely ruins the football.
