FIFA 12 (Xbox 360)
Advantages: Great Fast Paced Action, Big player likeness & Features
Disadvantages: Lesser players faces, Poor Impact Engine
FIFA 12 is the best release to date of any football game. The graphics surpass that of any other even if they arent perfect and for the big stars you can see they are very similar but the lesser players are very poor. FIFA has always been my preferred title over PES and the gap that used to be quite small around PES4 and even up to PES6 between the 2 games has gotten to an extreme where I dont understand why people choose to play PES with FIFA available to buy. The features and modes in FIFA are simply brilliant with Ultimate Team now free and available on release of this game it one of the most loved fantast modes/games on the market. Career mode is as good as ever even if it isnt quite groundbreaking yet. Online the feature Head to Head seasons is a welcome addition where you recreate a league format with every win counting as 3 points and a draw getting 1 point; you are set a traget e.g 15 points to get promoted and if you are out of the bottom divison 10 then you will have another target purely for avoiding relegation. This really gives you more to work towards in online modes and there are now cups every weekend to enter as a change of pace to playing in the leagues. The gameplay itself is similar to FIFA 11 but is better with the addtion of tactical defending where the automatic tackle if you hold down B is gone and you now need to be more careful and think before pressing the B to tackle.
All in all FIFA 12 beats its competitors by a mile but isnt quite the finished article, which is scary for the competition really. If you are new to the franchise get it, if you dont have muche left over cash after the bills and already have FIFA 11 might want to wait until FIFA 13 comes out for more radical changes.
Great Game 9/10
Summary: Great Game especially if its your first of the Franchise
