Great game but few negatives,
This review is from: FIFA 12 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
When Fifa 12 came out I was really excited and there are some positive steps as well as some negatives. The player impact engine is a real postive step because now players can bounce off stronger players whilst trying to win the ball and there are different injuries such as Lucas Patinho for my team (Sampdoria) is out with ligament damage for another 7 weeks (already spent 3 months out). Dribbiling is alot better as you can now dribble past players with the ball closer to you, even if your player has 70 for ball control and are right on the touchline, whilst before that player would loose the ball or run it out of play. The graphics for players have got better such as Javier Hernandez, which is good, and in Career Mode you can now have more detail information about your players whether they are happy, content or unhappy due to not being played enough, paid enough etc. The new youth system is also brilliant for a more realistic feel.
The negatives are still the same such as the CPU players find it so much easier to win the ball off your players, and yet you struggle to win the ball off them and when you do the majority of the time its a free kick to the other team. The referee still gives ridiculous free kicks and penalties away (example is I am using Sampdoria and Gastadello won the ball from a slide tackle in the box which was clear as day and the ref gave a penalty, I mean what the hell, and to top it off the CPU seems to get more decisions than you which is really unfair in my case). The final thing I find really annoying and is a big negative is that if your winning or drawing your players can pass the ball in really tight spaces, not get in each others way, crosses are really accurate and create good positioning etc but as soon as you are loosing your whole team becomes rubbish and your own players get in your way and the crossing is dreadful and the CPU team becomes amazing with their passing and crossing which is so stupid in my view (even if the passing error is on 70 as I tried that out), and your players sometimes won't move around an opposition player who is blocking you, even if you try and move your player with the joystick, which gets on my nerves.
Overall it's a great game but EA need to sort these little negatives that have been in Fifa for a while and in my view spend a little bit more time on the career mode, and then the game will be even better and a 5 star from me.

The other downside I have noticed was today, I was swansea against chelsea and some stupid reason some of the passes from chelsea were just unreal, I mean they were making passes from 1 end of the pitch to another perfectly into the feet of another chelsea player even when they swiveled round under pressure, and how the hell can john terry keep up with nathen dyer or scott sinclair
