Excerpt: So one thing’s probably on every PlayStation Vita-owning, football fan’s mind: is this year’s handheld FIFA game any good, or is it just another broken, under-developed port of its exemplary console brethren? Well, lucky for you, I have some good news.
Excerpt: Modelling FIFA Football after FIFA 11 isn't a bad thing, but in doing so EA has released a game that fans of FIFA 12 will find hard to play if they're going to continue playing the latest version.
Conclusion: The Short Version: FIFA Football delivers arguably the best example to date of a console-quality sports title on a portable platform. Sadly, though it's a year too late, sitting uneasily between FIFA 11 and FIFA 12 .
Pros: Touch shooting is pretty good, Compelling offline FIFA experience, Predictably shiny presentation
Cons: The lack of features may not sit well with FIFA 12 fans, 'Unlearning' Tactical Defending is horrible, There'll almost certainly be a new (probably better) game out in 7 months
Conclusion: An excellent first shot on target, FIFA on Vita may not pack as much detail and features as the console players, but the combination of slick touchscreen and button controls make it well worth picking
Excerpt: Sometimes it feels as though the imperious FIFA series has been around for as long as gaming itself, but despite numerous iterations over the years - culminating in the sublime FIFA 12 last September - nobody has ever delivered a fully featured FIFA game for a handheld console. At least until now.
Pros: As fully featured as the home version of FIFA 11., Play online in ranked and unranked matches., New touch controls offer precise shooting.
Cons: Will probably be replaced by FIFA 13 in a few months' time., Touch controls sometimes get in the way., Long loading times.
Summary: De conclusie is dat ze het bij EA Sports geflikt hebben. FIFA 12 is nog leuker, nog sensationeler en nog verslavender dan ooit tevoren. Met het nieuwe scala aan toevoegingen zoals precision dribbling, player impact en tactical defending heeft de game nog meer diepgang gekregen dan we gewend waren,...
Pros: Precision Dribbling, Tactical defending, Player impact, Career mode vernieuwd, Online gamen vernieuwd
Cons: Legendarisch niveau bizar goed, Te weinig spelers echt nagemaakt, Lounge mode verdwenen
