Summary: How could EA sports even begin to justify their exclusion of the online mode for this game? It completes takes away the whole fun factor. I had this game for a couple of weeks before I dawned on me that EA sports has reaped me off big time and I sold it 'thank God!!' Long story short, don't waste your money, no online mode no wii fifa 12 period!
Summary: Really, really bad graphics I have FIFA08 and it has better graphics and gameplay than this new version. It was a waste of money I think I will continue playing with the old version.... sad but true..
Summary: What is up with FIFA on wii??? This game stinks and so does FIFA 2011. I have never heard of a game where you cannot customize your formation or choose your set piece kicker or captain. No online mode for 2012? They make it easier when it already was easy! These games are clearly intended for younger players. The WII FIFA franchise is downright terrible for older players who would like to see online gameplay and customization.
Summary: I had been awaiting the release of FIFA 12 for a very long time and was very happy when I found it on Amazon. I had read that FIFA 12 had already earned so many awards, though I doubt that any were for the Wii. I expected much more from EA. The manager mode is awful and extremely unrealistic. The match engine has much to improve on. If I could, I'd demand a much higher refund than what Amazon's trade in is. DON'T BUY THIS GAME!
Summary: There is no online mode unlike fifa 11 for wii. Difficulty level has been degraded. I can beat barcelona 10-0. FIFA 11 was much better in a way it had online mode(retired now) and difficulty level was better. Good graphics, I give you that. I used to play fifa 11 every single day, I got bored with fifa 12 in a day. Don't buy it!
Summary: Graphics on the Wii version do not compare to the PS one. This was a complete waste of money for my 7 year old son. He stopped playing right away and loves the League. The players look strange, really thin with unrealistic faces; wheras PS can provide actual faces. This is priced way too high, too close to its sister product when it DOES NOT compare. I wish I didn't open it. I'd return for full refund.
Summary: Unfortunately, there is no improvement on FIFA 11. Actually, it's worse since online play is not possible anymore. Some prominent sports clubs, which were available in previous versions, are missing in FIFA 12, since licenses were not renewed. New tactical plays are almost useless. Graphics are even worse than FIFA 10. Some easy tricks and bugs that many users complained about FIFA 11 are still present. Overall, this purchase was a big disappointment for me.
Summary: Once you get good at the Wii version of FIFA, you need to have online games available because it becomes way too easy to beat the computer. Unfortunately, there's no on line capability with FIFA 2012 unlike 2011. I generally can beat Spain with lowly Lorient, which of course is a huge mismatch in real life. The new quick tactics seem cool, but they are unnecessary because the game is already easy enough to beat without those tactics.
Summary: It is basically the same game year over year, from 2011 Wii version. They updated the main game selection screen just to make it different from 2011. For example, you score a goal in a game mode, you get a building upgrade to the main screen. Useless. At the end, game engine, game play is 99% same, other than the 4 selectable tactics (again useless for a mindless AI). Received the game, defeated the AI (hard mode) in the first 2-minute game 8 to 1 (Barca vs Real).
