Product Description

Platform: Xbox 360 | 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fifa 12 - It will make you laugh and cry!! 27 Nov 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I haven't played a Fifa game for about 4 years (preferring usually the Pro Evolution franchise) but this year I decided to give it a whirl owing to ever more positive reviews for EAs footy installments. When I first started playing I was very happy about a number of things, and, unhappy about some others. This review does not include online play, I am only reviewing what you get in the box when you buy it!!

What I love about Fifa 12:

The graphics are fantastic with realistic player animation and some wonderful kit designs. The only let-down in the graphical department is the crowd. They look paper thin and all move together in some strange cult-like motion. But, with that said, its the action on the pitch which attracts all of your attention. The commentary is also very well done and it includes some nice titbits of information about each team to give it all a more realistic feel (for example, playing as Leeds United, the commentators often remind me at the beginning of a match of our spectacular fall from grace in the past ten years etc). The menu screens are easy to navigate and the game contains a long list of tracks which you can listen to while messing around with your formation. The best part though is "Career Mode" where you take over a team of your choosing and try to take them to the top. There is an immense library of players (most of which have their real-life picture in their profile) and the inclusion of a youth academy option allows you to discover and develop the next stars of tomorrow.

What I dislike about Fifa 12:

It's hard! Very hard! That isn't really the thing that bothers me though, because all games should have a learning curve where you progressively improve, but Fifa 12 has a different kind of difficulty.

1.0 out of 5 stars Quite possibly the worst FIFA game yet 5 July 2012
By Adrian
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
As the title states, this is the worst game of FIFA I have ever played.
I am sorry I wasted the £30+ in paying for this rubbish.

The AI in this game is obscene.
The AI thinks to itself "Alright, it's time to score", turns into God mode and utterly destroys me.
Amateur in far too easy and semi-pro onwards becomes progressively God-like.

But, you get what you pay for and based on what I have played from FIFA 12, I'll be sticking to Pro Evo.

4.0 out of 5 stars FIFA 12 7 Feb 2012
By Samuel
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
FIFA 12 is really a very realistic game. I used to be a PES player but now I think that FIFA as overcome PES in almost every detail. Despite the tactical defense mode is a little bit difficult for newbies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fifa's Back! 2 Oct 2011
By Mike
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Im here to review the career mode only as it is the thing I use and have always used most on fifa.

To start with you'll notice the menu's are alot slicker and when you sim to the next match it doesn't take you to a whole new menu and it also doesn't take a long time. You can access alot more information on your team now and the players have a form and morale bar aswell as the usual stamina bar. Players also ask you to rest them, tell you they are unhappy if you haven't played them and thank you if you play them after they complained which boosts their morale which means squad rotation is key to keep everyone happy. It adds to the overall feel to the game and makes it feel alot more real.

Another addition is the transfers and transfer deadline day. People bid for you players now even if you don't transfer list them which is a brilliant new feature but which left me with some headaches when I had to decide whether or not to sell Jones for 16.5m! Also on transfer deadline day it counts down with 10 hours left and goes hourly so you can make sure you get everything you want done.

The scouting system is a BRILLIANT addition, perhaps the best. Its alot more detailed than it was on older fifa's when they used to have it and now I have just bought a 16 year old central midfielder for 25k. He is rated 53 already and has huge potential so now If I play him im hoping he'll turn out good in a few seasons.

I was very critical of fifa 10 and 11's career modes as 10 was full of bugs while 11 didn't offer anything other than game after game. This career mode also gives you the chance to do either praise or unnerve the next team your playing or their manager, you can also comment on one of their players.

For me, the basic mechanics of the gameplay in FIFA 12 are probably the best they've been in the FIFA series for some time. The passing and movement is a lot sharper, especially if you speed up the gameplay in the settings menu. It's about as close to old school PES as the Xbox has got in my opinion.

While playing friends is great, however, I really find playing the computer more of a chore than anything else. The main problem is the computer AI, which has been designed in such a way that it saps most of the enjoyment out of the game. It's not that it's too difficult, or too easy, it's simply that the way the computer plays is exceptionally tiresome to compete against.

They relentlessly try and keep the ball, but not in a realistic way like Barcelona or Spain would do - instead they run around in circles in such a manner that you can't tackle them. On several occasions I've chased an opposition player all the way back from the halfway line to his own goal line - as if simply running backwards is a legitimate strategy because it allows you to keep hold of the ball.

They also seem to have a perverse love of dribbling along the side of the pitch so that even if you do tackle them it spins out for a throw in. It's neither realistic nor enjoyable to play against this sort of thing because, especially on the more difficult modes, you'll find yourself giving the ball away and then chasing shadows for 2 minutes while the computer potters about without even attempting to threaten your own goal. It's not dominating possession so much as it is time wasting.

For that reason I've given it three stars because it's effectively written off the single player mode for me. As a multiplayer the game is fantastic, though, so if that's your main intention in buying it then I'd recommend it wholeheartedly.
