FIFA 12

FIFA Editor's Review

The latest and greatest in EA Sports’ popular football franchise impresses on the PC.

Creating a yearly instalment of a sport game franchise that improves on the previous version is quite a challenge, yet with FIFA 12 EA Sports have done exactly that. Arguably the finest football simulation game available, perhaps even the best sports game, the PC version of FIFA 12 matches the versions released on the powerful game consoles. Boasting beautifully crisp graphics, realistic animation and a host of new features that really boost the game’s longevity and established brilliance, no self respecting football fan should be without it.

So what is new? Fans of the franchise will first notice the innovative new defending system. More tactical than before, defenders now hold back and track an attacking player rather than clumsily striking out at the ball. Timing needs to be tightened to successfully tackle a player. Aside from the defensive improvements there is also more precise dribbling to master and hitting the net is more difficult, increasing the overall challenge.

Gamers can choose from a career mode, player manager mode and a diverse range of tournaments including knockouts, leagues and the F.A. Cup. New online modes include online friendlies and head to head seasons, which make engaging with the thriving online community even more exciting. Retaining much of the winning formula of earlier instalments, the new features make this a worthy addition to the much loved franchise.

Pro's: A formidable range of new features, an improved online experience and excellent graphics and menus make this a winner.

Con's: Yes, it is similar to previous versions, but anyone mad about the beautiful game must own this one.

Conclusion: Other sports game franchises take note, this is how you deliver a high quality annual update. EA Sports have truly raised the bar with FIFA 12 and the online modes offer great potential for future expansions and updates.
