Summary: OK I'm a huge FiFA fan and have been buying every FIFA game since 98. I love the FIFA series so much and play it so often, I wanted a portable one for when I'm not home playing my PS3 version. So I figured I'd pick this one up since I've been very impressed by every 3ds game I've bought so far. So FIFA + 3DS = WIN Right?---Wrong I was very wrong, it only took less than an hour of playing to figure out I was going to end up selling it. The main problem is the gameplay.
Summary: This is what EA called "the best soccer game on 3ds": 1. Lag like you're playing an 3D online game using a computer 10 years before with an 56k modem. 2. It takes about half second until your command is processed by the player you control. 3. Players are nothing more than small running symbols, you can't distinguish any of them. 4.
Summary: I was hopeful FIFA 12 for the 3DS was going to prove to be one of the best handheld soccer games out there. Boy, was I wrong. Dare I say it's actually one of the absolute worst I've ever played? And I've played just about all of them. First of all, I knew something was up when EA themselves hardly ever acknowledged that they were releasing this game. I bet they are embarrassed to have released it. I would be too. What are the problems? 1) Terrible framerate.
Summary: The controls are hard to understand, don't respond well, and are just uncomfortable. Plus, with EA trashing Nintnedo, I doubt any updates are coming. I got a very good deal on this game but still not worth it. I woundn't pay a cent for it... It's that bad.
