FIFA 12 brings to the pitch the game-changing new Player Impact Engine, a physics engine built to deliver real-world physicality in every interaction on the pitch. Experience the way real-world footballers challenge each other for the ball, win possession, and test each other physically. Enjoy an infinite variety of natural and believable outcomes in every collision. Players feel more resilient, push and pull during the fight for possession, and recover from light challenges more easily.
Revolutionary gameplay innovations make FIFA 12 deeper and more engaging. All-new Precision Dribbling creates a higher fidelity of touch on the ball for better control in tight spaces, more time to make decisions on attack, and more control over the pace of the game. Innovations in attack are balanced by a re-designed defending mechanism, making it as skilful and meaningful as real-world football. With all-new Tactical Defending, positioning and intercepting passes are as important as tackling. Tactics and timing are crucial. Plus, CPU players have been infused with Pro Player Intelligence, a self-awareness that enables them to behave and make decisions based on their own skills and tendencies, and gives them the aptitude to understand the strengths and weaknesses of teammates in every situation.

Same as the other FIFA gamesrjb789 | Sept. 27, 2013 | See all rjb789's reviews »
The newest game of FIFA by EA sports is just a carbon copy of all of the previous games that have the FIFA label. This is not necessarily a bad thing but if you come into this game thinking you will be experiencing new things than when you played the other games, you will be bitterly disappointed. The game play in the game is fluent and feels great and when you score a goal it is very rewarding. The graphics are okay but not great, some details have been improved as opposed to games such as FIFA 11, 10, 09 etc but not by a long way. You should only get this game if you really like football games which provide a fun, fast paces experience.

The FIFA series has long been one of my favourite to play after a long shift at work, it's just a great way to unwind and spend and evening! Great play time, AI, etc.
Best control yet!Thomazen | Aug. 17, 2013 | See all Thomazen's reviews »
This game has such an amazing control and feel for the ball, which is quite an incredible feel on a PC! The gameplay of course speaks for itself with soccer-related play, but the amazing work that has been putted into the controls makes this title THE FIFA title until now.
It's just another football game...Avesomeofthat13 | Aug. 8, 2013 | See all Avesomeofthat13's reviews »
As much as I enjoy playing FIFA games, not much changes between each year. The most that's happened so far, is the impact engine is more precise and they've given the player more ball colours to choose from - whoopee do. I enjoy the aspect of playing a football game, and controlling a player and team, but I don't really think the next game in line should be classed as a game - they're just upgraded models of the previous game with more colours and slightly improved anti-aliasing. Either way it's still enjoyable.
The best football sim on PCDemilisz | June 18, 2013 | See all Demilisz's reviews »
This game is currently the best football sim on PC. Several game modes (including be a pro, when you control only one layer and be a goalie, when you play as goalkeeper), Ultimate Team (you buy, exchange, collect and sells player cards to made a dream team). Of course the main dish is career, where you choose a club and lead it to glory: either as manager, coach or playing coach. Manager options are nice, but of course this is more about match itself, so do not expect Football Manager level here.
There is vast number of leagues, clubs and nations teams to play with, so this game will not get boring quickly. Only european tournaments like European League or Champions Legue aren't licensed, but the only drawback it helds are lack of official songs and groups being draw by game itself.
For 20 bucks get now, as this is better than FIFA 13 and with FIFA 14 and later better wait till PC gets next gen version.
