sgmullins, FIFA probably seems 'stagnant' 'cause you're playing on 'ping pong' amateur. Try upping that difficulty to legendary and turning off the assisted passing. Turn those tactics down to a short passing, free moving, high pressure Barcelona-esque type of game and watch the trickery and well worked, deserved goals flow. Or up into a high speed Manchester United style attacking, physical game, whichever you prefer. Either way, its extremely realistic and immensely challenging. And when you get used to jockeying, early crossing, one two passes and low crosses, lofted through balls and working to your players advantages in your tactics, it becomes so much more than a football game. More than can be said for PES, which gets more rigid every year. The graphics are crap and the passing is stale, almost like watching fat bald men playing badminton. FIFA has flair, while PES has rigidity. Preferring PES to FIFA is like preferring Margaret Thatcher to Pippa Middleton, its just wrong. Stop sulking because you can't play FIFA like the pros, and learn how to work it. Everyone knows it's the superior game. PES is dead and gone.
@sgmullins The only thing you get from PES is stupid and robotic gameplay which sucks even for kids.
linuks9 what a stupid comment. There is nothing pes wants from fifa. What you get with fifa is stagnant gameplay after a few weeks playing. The only people who stick with it are kids who know squat about football. Its the kids who believe everything they read from dodgy reviews especially from the likes of dodgy websites like ign to be honest. Money talks eh
It's funny how every year reviewers always end up using the same lines such as "It's the best one yet" "The greatest ever made" "Better than the last one" Sounds as if they get paid every year to say the same BS
NBA 2K10-11-12 are best sports game EVER!!! Period!!! Fifa and PES have 2 many flaws in different aspects!!!
I loved the manager mode in Fifa 10 (although it was broke and riddled with bugs) The manager mode in Fifa 11 was terrible.....I'm really hoping for a big manager mode improvment this year or I'm leaving Fifa well alone for a while!
What's wrong with you Man C haters? Man C can pay for this and more! money talks so if you support a broke ass team just keep your mouth close and stop hating! I know money aint make you a champion but is a damn good help! this year will be Man C time, Aguero + Silva = muchos goooolessss, poder hispano pa la Premiere League!! aunq prefiero q sea el Kun Aguero la bujia del equipo por ser latino!
mmm.. my last fifa was 09, I think is time to actualize and get this one, 'cause it's plenty of good changes and great real movements.
First, it is not gameplay and I agree with the you guys, second i did not see any change compared to fifa 11 in this clip. I really hope Fifa 12 shows really something new to make it impossible to go back to fifa 11.
...Later tht day at PES Headquarters... "men lets copy fifa 12's new advancements and put it in our games 5 years later and call it "Contact Player Motion" yes brilliant idea." moral of story: PES is s*it
