Excerpt: I got the game last week and was really looking forward to playing FIFA 2012. Me and a buddy (we both play FIFA 2011 a lot) started playing the game and after an hour, we were so disappointed and annoyed by the new gameplay features that we went back to FIFA 2011. FIFA 2012 is A LOT slower than 2011 and the defense is setup so that it is really difficult to steal the ball from, or even slow down, the offensive players.
Pros: Graphics are better
Cons: Defending is horrible, Gameplay is a lot slower, Tough to take ball away
Summary: I love FIFA and have had every title. I regret to inform you that this one sucks.... the defensive system makes it too button heavy and the game play is lots slower than fifa 11. Its just not as exciting. mounting an attack is slow and boring. players are slow and boring... on the up side, it looks great!
Summary: Okay, first off, i want to say i am not much of a football fan, and especially not FIFA games. I never followed the 'hype', in another words, the need to buy a new FIFA every year, when they all are seemingly similar. However, even I have to acknowledge that 09 was getting a little old. I have played FIFA 14 briefly at a pub, and i liked it. However, as it is new, it is very expensive.
