Manufacturer's Description

Revolutionary changes to the No. 1 selling sports game on the planet with innovations inspired by the real-world of football and powered by the all-new FIFA 12 Player Impact Engine.

Winner of 20 “Best Sports Game of E3” awards, including the prestigious E3 Game Critics award, 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.

WHAT IS FIFA ULTIMATE TEAM?

EA SPORTS FIFA 12 Ultimate Team is a massive online community of fans building, managing and competing with their ultimate football team from the world’s best players in FIFA 12. Join over 2 million fans and take on the challenge of building a squad of the world’s best football stars by earning, buying, selling and trading players with other Ultimate Team gamers around the world. Build your ultimate football club the way real-world coaches and managers build the truly great football teams. Match your dream team against your friends’ best teams whenever you want.

WHAT IS A FIFA ULTIMATE TEAM GOLD PACK?

Improve your Ultimate Team and experience the excitement of opening your monthly gold packs. Each pack is a mix of 12 items, including players, contracts, stadiums, managers, staff, fitness, healing, balls, kits and badges. Gold Packs consist of players rated 75+ in-game and include one rare item. Rare items include enhanced player attributes, longer contracts and the most coveted players.

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.
  • Career Mode - Now driven by the same drama, storylines and emotion as the real world of football, factors such as player morale, on-pitch form, wages and league position will drive outcomes in the game. Users will face more decisions and factors than ever before, with their consequences being played out on and off the pitch to test your resolve as a manager all season long, with bigger decisions to make and more dynamic outcomes. Evaluation logic has been improved to reflect a player’s true value, a new scouting network feature has been added to discover new talent, and the excitement of Transfer Deadline day has been expanded to increase the emotion, urgency and drama of that special day.
  • 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 Commentary Teams - For the first time ever, two broadcast teams will be featured – Martin Tyler and Alan Smith and Clive Tyldesley and Andy Townsend. Fans can customize audio to their preferred commentators for any matches.
  • Complete Authenticity - Over 500 officially licensed clubs and more than 15,000 players.

5.0 out of 5 stars FIFA 12 - Special Edition 26 Oct 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Special Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
FIFA 12 continues an exceptionally good series of games. With improvements once again to gameplay and the 'realness' of the games enhanced to leave the player feeling more involved, FIFA 12 is without a doubt the greatest footballing game made to date.
Whilst the new tactical defending system may take some time for some to get used to, once mastered it allows for a much greater control over one's team, allowing for greater build up play and stronger tactical movements to be made.
The 'Career Mode' also has some updates which immerse the user more thoroughly in the game, whether playing as a Manager or player.
The 'Special Edition' unlocks player-cards on the 'Ultimate Team' setting, whereby the user trades virtual footbal cards to create the best team available, then can play online against others' card-teams. Whilst this seems to be another interesting mode of play, it does appear to be based on that, now well-weathered, tradition of charging users if they wish to progress any further whilst not really adding anything in particular to the overall game. So unless you are desparate to re-live your card trading youth online, the regular edition will probably serve you just as well.

For all of those who know and love FIFA, this is yet another great product continuing the star-studded franchise. For those new to football games, this is the best place to start!

3.0 out of 5 stars fifa 12 and how it has changed 9 Oct 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Special Edition
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
im a big fifa fan and have had every game since fifa 99, however i thought that fifa 12 has been i slight let down. there are good points and bad points. the new impact engine looks good in the trailers but in the game it is simply unrealistic. the new style of tackling is also a down point as when pressing standing tackle wherverev on the pitch your player is, he lunges forward trying to block the ball whether it is there or not. this makes the games quality seem poorer. also i feel they have not worked on the virtual pro side of the game at all. i can see no real changes from fifa 11 besides updated teams. however the fifa 12 career mode i feel is a real high point. the changes made make it much more realistic and more exciting, such as the new deadline day feature. this makes that final day much more interesting and more realistic as you can pull off late deals literally in the last hour of the transfer market. another high point is the use of different commentators depending on the match type; martin tyler & alan smith for league games, clive tyldesly & andy townsend for cup matches. this again makes it more realistic. the gameplay in general i personally find harder than fifa 11, although this makes it more challenging.

overall i feel that, despite a few improvements here and there this game hardly differs from fifa 11. commentary is basically the same. i would still recommend this game as i feel fifa games are the best quality, however i feel the prices are high for what few changes have been made.

2.0 out of 5 stars A step down for Fifa 16 Jan 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Special Edition
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Fifa 12 has been somewhat galvanized with new and up to date traits, some of which do improve the game play, but most don't.

Defending
Fifa have completely overhauled their previous defense engine and have completely changed it, a potentially good move which is overshadowed by simple errors, the defending is awkward at the best of times as your defenders at the press of the B button do nothing but a slight standstill tackle which usually ends in a foul, or the attackers leaving them in the dust, a particularly annoying trait when it comes to defending is the amount of ludicrous free kicks and penalty's for seemingly petty incidents, this makes defending an irritating and tedious task

CPU Opposition
Another update from Fifa is a more responsive AI which you play against, which can clearly be seen. The CPU now has the ability to do nothing more than everything with the ball, including the infamous cutback goal (A problem Fifa said they would fix, but instead made even the CPU do it) this really takes the edge out of a game, also in certain games even on a low difficulty it seems the computer can randomly up their performance to stunning proportions, one minute the game is in your control, the next the CPU suddenly starts playing unrealistically with perfect defending, flawless goalkeeping and improved attacking, this seems to happen despite the players overall skill, this can once again spoil the gameplay.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too many people giving unbalanced reviews 6 Oct 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Special Edition
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Too many [people on here are giving this game 5 stars. 5 stars means perfect to me, but his game isn't.

It is a good game, but to balance it out, I'll list the bad aspects of the game:

Players 'sprinting' with the ball (using RT), run ridiculously slow and are as agile as a badger.

Refereeing inconsistancies. Plus no longer do you get pulled up at the break in play for a previous foul.

Handballs do not occur online.

The AI is clever for the opposition but too often your own players act stupidly. Pressing A to square the ball to a man on the goal line, yet the ball is passed out the box.

I feel too much emphasis is placed on human control. Controlling the weight of passes for example. Fair enough, but then what is the point of having manual and semi assisted controls if you're basically doing that with 'assisted?'.

Overall, it is a decent game. I'm not the best player in the world, however I just feel that too many people are creaming over the game 'just because it's Fifa'. Balance out your reviews.
