Summary: Having played FIFA on PS2 then XBOX360 I was intrigued to see how the PS Vita version compared - the answer is very well. Graphics are great for a hand held and all the functionality is there. Personally I think the game play is actually slightly better than on the other platforms. The price is good too and I'm glad I chose to buy this version rather than 13 as the cost was difficult to justify. If you like FIFA titles this is for you.
Summary: I Just got my PS vita and Fifa Football just a few days ago. I've been a PES fan for over 10 years. I've tried Fifa games before and know how realistic they are, but this is the first Fifa game I really play a lot (They don't have a PES on Vita yet). At first, I was skeptical about how a next-gen HD football game can be transported onto a handheld device. But how i was wrong! This is every inch a Fifa game would appear on a big console.
Summary: When it comes to playing games I always find myself spending more time on either Fifa or Pro Evo than any other type of game. So far that has been the case with my PS Vita. I originally bought a Nintendo 3DS because that was the best handheld console to play Fifa on. Not long after and the PS Vita was released! I compared the two and there is really no comparison. The size of the screen, processing power and touch capabilities were all too much to resist. On to the game.
Summary: Never been that good at football games ,but thought would give it a go ,some controls seem awkward so soon removed screen passing touch control.Online gaming feels more realistic as you know you are playing real skills rather than computer AI, good game but not my genre really.
Excerpt: "...PSN ID: Darkeyes2k11 The FIFA franchise in recent years has just got better and better and with the threat of being too similar, FIFA 12 changed things around, including a new menu and layout but also revamping the tackling system. Now it must have worked as FIFA 12 became the best-selling sports title to be released. Most likely there will be a Euro 2012 FIFA game and you can bet your mortgage that a FIFA 13 game will make an appearance in September/October ...
Pros: Powerful visuals | Touchpad works really well | Game modes and content packed
Cons: Precision of dribbling lost a bit | Touch - screen doesn't work well
Not perfect, but still the best handheld football game ever.

Summary: It took me a moment to realize what it was, but from first time I saw the FIFA Football box, I knew there was something missing. The cover art was the same as EA Sport's most recent release, the in-game menus were identical, and it looked exactly as I would expect. Then I realized what it was -- the "12" was missing from the title. That might seem like a minor quibble, but it turned out to be a telling omission.
