Summary: Excellent product but extremely poor service delivery. This was a NEW product that I had purchased through Amazon but it came with serial number that was already in use. Imagine that! After the loading process failed (because of the used product number) I went through several difficult rounds of telephone calls, emails, on-line chats etc. with ea before I finally got a new serial number from their (ea's) website.
Summary: This is the best sports game I have ever played, period. Graphics - superb on the PC. Optimization of code - superb. Runs fantastic on my spruced up very old system and graphics card (extra ROM). AI - both your teammates and opposing team's players know what they are doing, and they do it well. They move to cover the runner without the ball on the defense, they run to cover gaps in defense... On the offense, they make brilliant runs for you to pass the ball to.
Summary: I was a konami loyal until pes10 then I retired from playing to work, and when i came back it result EA is making better games. FIFA 12 is the best soccer game you can find right now and I think it will be in the next 5 years. Online gaming is the best feature. So go for it buy it.
Summary: i bought FIFA 12 for PC in October 2011. i've also been playing FIFA 11 on my Xbox 360 console since March 2011. so naturally, when playing FIFA 12, i tend to compare it to FIFA 11. also note that FIFA series are designed for consoles, then ported to PC (EA's own words, not mine). PRO: the new "tactical defending" introduced in FIFA 12 appeals to me much more than the classic method of defending in the previous versions.
Summary: If you're a soccer fan then you got to have this one. I have always like the FIFA series and this one is not much different from the other ones except, for the controller's buttons and some physics of the players. The graphics are pretty good and is always fun to play!
