Not perfect but i'm still playing the crap out of it and I got it when it came out. Better music than most sports games helps as well.
The only complain about this game is that defenders are the most retarded ever in the series. The other players are tactically dumb. Your AI controlled players are begginers when you play against computer on legendary.
i've been a FIFA fan for the past 2 years, but don't you think theres a lil too much space for attackers in front of the goal?
As a PES convert I find it a lot better than previous installments but my main love in PES was Master League and career mode in this feels a little flat in comparison. Licenses make it feel good (e.g having more than 2 divisions and not having random Turkish teams to fill in the gaps left by the fact there aren't enough English teams) but the creation modes are rubbish as you can't edit anything because official sponsors wouldn't want their kits defaced. After creating a player and putting it in a club, my game messed up and I had to delete my data and start again. The game feels more scripted in movement than PES and it isn't so much outright fun. Crossing the ball never works, the players look NOTHING like real life (PES is 10x better) and celebrations are ridiculous. It's a bit of fun to pick up and play and they have improved the gameplay but there's no depth to it. I'll just get PES again on PC and download a mod to add the licenses.
If game spot gives this game a 9 dont trust the review this game is WACK ! ! ! gamespot must be getting money from EA
once again only players in top notch teams get a high rating, others can go screw themselves this game stopped being fun once the player ratings were made, its impossible for a team like Hercules FC. to beat Barcelona FC. in the game yet in real life it happened, heck Chivas from Mexico scored a 4 - 1 on them too and they were using U-22 players, bah this game ruined console gaming for me
Hey Here's a tip instead of English commentary change it to Spanish even though u dont understand them every time you make a goal you hear GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!! its the best commentary.
that looked pretty cool, if only the audio was working I though my computer was on mute, then I checked my ears..kept turning up the sound and the next vid played, I was in for a shock when the sound came.......damn man
@Timbone07 are you kidding?? is absolute the oposite, maybe you are blind. @varunvikram1 you are a mediocre, that the hole idea, learn and improve! but the key is to practice and havepatience and it seems you lack in both. Everyone wants the easy way, go and play PES then itas so realistic......ufff. Tired too hear people asking for much real football games and when they go it, they complain about it.
I'm from the US and in one year of watching futbol not football, I have come to love it and love freakin FIFA! You Brits just give us Americans some time and this sport will be right up there with our NFL in popularity. Cmon Donovan!
Fifa for me has stopped being fun with 12. Yes the old defending is there but only offline, so if u want to compete online u are pretty much have to learn the new defending which really takes a while or like some u give up. Dribbling is fun but you spend so much effort defending u feel like smashing ur controller every time u lose the ball.
I prefer PES it feels more like football in my opinion, in FIFA movement feels too stiff, especially ball physics. Played FIFA 10 and FIFA 11 on PS3 before getting PES11 for PC. Both games can be annoying but at least in PES12 online , I can let the AI control my players and win tactically or by plain luck lol.
@Prakhar1290 Does it make you feel better telling people online that you can play soccer in real life? Everybody is a critic these days...
@grim0187 hahahahahah u are freakin idiot.....bieng british doesnt means u watch SOCCER(or Football) or being white????....Idiot....u know how I know that idiot........... Iam Latinoamerican........People around the world watch this sport......so SHUT UP...
@Gelugon_baat I think you are a girl. Please stay away from the games you cannot play. I play soccer very well. I have got innumerable invitations from district and state club and has won many gold medals, trophies and cash awards because I always make my team win. And this FIFA 12 is a useless game, far behind the realism of real world. I can't really expect EA to release such a crap in 2012. They can't even spend their precious time in improving Need for speed series. I don't know how are they still in business.
@grim0187: I love this sport along with pretty much most big sports including gridiron, but before you go around bagging something that the majority of the world loves and think gridiron is such a tough sport, I'd like to see you and the American boys run straight in a game of AFL or Rugby without all your little padding and protection. If you don't like the sport then find somewhere else to whinge.
@grim0187 is not only "the little british people"... all the world says"Football or futbol" and ALL the world love it.. so if you are going to insult the FUTBOL, do it in an american football game review.
@Grim0187 I think it speaks volumes that america are trying to pick up the soccer craze like the rest of the world in Europe, Africa and Asia whilst american football is virtually non-existent outside the US. Face it dude, football is on the rise while AMERICAN football is on the decline. You're just in denial and are hopelessly trying to convert football fans into AMERICAN football fans.
@grim0187 Your giving a history on how tough U.S is? Really? IN a comments section about a soccer game? I live in the U.S and your just the other pathetic spoiled Americans that root USA! USA! But dont know sh** as to where the country has been headed and as to why. Our government steals sh** loads of money from us and you know? Its cause dumb people like you are to busy trolling around here and not doing something productive woth your life.
@Delrive7 First of all, its Grim. Thats a 0 not an o. Second of all, Football and soccer are two different sports in my country. No need to put a slash next to them to not offend the little birtish people. Secondly, I didnt say the sport isnt huge. I said its not THE most popular here. Football is. Football, college and NFL is bigger in the USA then hockey and baseball and soccer and especially "rugby." pfffhahaha.
