Product Description

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant after a couple of tweaks... 8 Oct 2011
Platform for Display:Nintendo 3DS|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a very good game, but to get the most you need to make some changes. Personally I changed the controls slightly (switched to an alternate scheme) and then I changed the camera to tele and zoomed out a bit.

Once you do that, then the gameplay is a lot better. Gameplay is a lot slower than some recent fifa's on other consoles, however, personally I think it makes for a better fluid passing game, and it's also more realistic.

The other camera modes are fine for street games, and the 3d effect works well giving a great sense of depth, unlike many other 3ds games, it does add something to the game - but for the normal matches, I'd turn the slider off, as it doesn't add anywhere near as much.

The new feature of being able to shoot by touching a virtual net on the bottom screen works really well sometimes. When outside the box looking for a pot-shot, or at the edge of the area, it's well worth it, but for aerial balls and placed finishes in the box (where you can't take time out to look at the bottom screen) it's best to stick to the buttons.

A plethora of teams and leagues can be found and they've crammed a lot onto the card in terms of game modes too, however the other reason this is a 4 star game for me is the lack of online functionality. This isn't a rushed game, EA have spent time and it's really telling they developed it specifically for the 3ds, but as a result of that - the lack of online is slightly more annoying, however, there are online squad and kit updates for free, which is a plus.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good But Frustrating In Equal Measure 8 Oct 2011
Platform for Display:Nintendo 3DS|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Some things in life just have to happen every year. It's tradition, and without those traditions there would be nothing but chaos in the world. I'm talking about things like eating chocolate eggs at Easter; giving and receiving presents at Christmas; and someone posting at least one funny Youtube Poop video during the year. Another tradition you can add to that list is the annual release of the FIFA Football video game on numerous games consoles.

So here we are with FIFA 12, and to be more specific the 3DS version. EA Sports have managed to cram a lot of teams, nations, modes and cup competitions onto the little 3DS card; and now we're gonna look at the main talking points. Through all the modes there are basically two types of football matches you can play: 11 vs. 11 and Streets. Streets is a five-a-side game where you have a small pitch. There's no throw-ins or corner kicks since the pitch is surrounded by walls. The action is thick and fast, and in most games there are plenty of goals. The five-a-side game is actually very addictive, and you may come to like it more than the 11 vs. 11 game.

But 11 vs. 11 is still there for the traditionalists. A full sized grass pitch with proper rules, proper football, proper passion. The gameplay is impressively realistic. Players will hustle and bustle for the ball; bad tackles will result in a yellow or even a red card; and you have pass the ball around a bit in order to create chances. Not all of them will result in a goal, but it is a very rewarding experience when you do find the back of the net.

3.0 out of 5 stars Delivers as advertised 15 May 2012
Platform for Display:Nintendo 3DS|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
My previous Fifa game was Fifa 98, and to be honest I don't think much has changed since then. I suppose it's all about getting the latest team and player lists, with updated sponsors and competition line-ups. So for that reason, this game delivers.

The commentary is OK but, I suspect that in order to save space, a little sparse sometimes. I struggled to feel the tension of playing in the cup finals though, for some reason the build-up in the competition just doesn't seem as tense as in other sports games.

All in all, not a bad option if you require your footy fix on the train or bus, the graphics are good (PS2-ish), the 3D is really cool but, as usual, not really important.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 3DS version of FIFA! 23 Nov 2011
Platform for Display:Nintendo 3DS|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is a really unique take on the FIFA franchise, being in 3d, and using the innovative touchscreen shooting system, which I find makes for fantastic gameplay. There are only a couple of reasonable reviews of this on Amazon but trust me, for a handheld footy game you can't go wrong with this. There is no online, but I'm one of the few who don't like playing online so it makes no difference to me. The difference between this game and PES 2011 3DS (which I like also) is that there is a lot more crammed into the game, and the gameplay is much better, with goals galore, whereas I found PES 2011 a bit clunky in places, this game really flows. To end this review I would like to say how annoying I find reviews of handheld games saying they are not like the console versions and marking them down because of that, take them for what they are, this game is mint!
