About a year ago FIFA became the most beautiful and most watched after soccer game on the planet. This year the game returns with glittering new graphics and awesome sound. The new features added to FIFA 12 will have you dazzling in delight at the improvements made.
EA has perfected the perfect in this new release and soccer fans will be smiling all the way to the game shop. FIFA 12 sports brand new tactical play and boasts features not present in last year's release. Each new feature makes the game a masterpiece and the gameplay is better than ever. EA has added more tactical editing that makes the game sophisticated and polished. The game is more engaging and if you employ the right skills your opponent will be forced into making mistakes and losing the ball. You will have to play like a professional when your team is not in possession of the ball. Putting your opponent under extreme pressure does not work in this series, you need real skill and knowledge of the game to win possession of the ball. In the predecessor you simply needed to tackle the opponent with the ball in order to gain possession. In this release you have to employ more skill and simply tackling does not give you possession. You can stick a leg out or pretend or fake an injury, but most likely the referee will punish you severely and your team will not be taking it lightly.
Tactically defending plays an important part of the game. This may not sound exciting as you will spend less time performing impressive acrobatic skills that wow the crowds and make you more of a film star than a ball player. FIFA 12 is much more realistic than any previous soccer game, and all the glamor and excitement you may be craving will be absent in this game. Last year's game will make you realize how rough it was, and the new version will be much more challenging and closer to the real thing.
Precision dribbling is another fantastic feature that will make you realize that it's not all glitter on the filed. Stick to the basics and you can win. Perform all those fabulous tricks that make the crowd scream for more and you'll surely lose the game. Sticking to the boring basics will allow you to control the ball for most of the game and this is extremely how teams win in real life. When players collide, the crunch of bones and flesh is almost realistic. The contentions and injuries sustained will look like real life collisions. Although not many accidents of player collision is present in the game, it never looks like this real, you will swear you watching the game on TV.
For players who prefer the manager's office, statistics and logistics will be more exciting than the actual game on the field. This option teaches you to pay careful attention to correct management techniques and logical gameplay. Progress will be slow and the game may be boring in this mode, but many gamers actually prefer managing the team. The menus are complex and can be tedious to page through all of the options, but you will find a myriad of choices that will leasing you gasping in awe and admiration.
No matter which mode you play FIFA 12 is the first game that is so close to the real thing.
