Great Game but it seems that it freezes my console whilst in career mode. I know that its the game because all my other games play fine. However it is a graphically stunning game and a very addictive game play! Just wish it did not freeze. I have been playing FIFA since 95 and this is the first time I have had such a problem like this before! But again if there is no freezes I would recommend it to every soccer enthusiast!

This game has all i want from a sport game, great AI. Huge online community, more advanced than any of the other EA Sports games and more popular. As always they have all the leauges you posably want from a soccer game, you probably now whats up.
The graphics are slightly increased but not that much of a change. The also made it even more realistic and the game speed is faster and more realistic than FIFA 11.
Even though I love soccer, my friends thats not much of soccer fans love it, its the best game to play with friends and it always feels good to get away from all the shooters and other games and just play soccer.
If you alredy have FIFA 11 and you dont feel for spending 60 bux its completely understable, but if you care about the online FIFA 12 is a must have soccer game. They also have some all new random stuff thats actually way cooler than I thought it would be, you just take your favorite team and every time you accomplish something with that team your team gets points worldwide and lets say your favorite team is little poor Liverpool. If you have fans thats good enough Liverpool can win the FIFA leuge even though Man united probably will win for real.
As long as you care a little about soccer im 99,99% sure this is a game you will love, but notice renting the game wont give you a online pass to participate in any of the online activities so you will miss 80% of the experience on renting it. You can see renting FIFA 12 as a big demo or beta though. Some people might wonder, PES 2012 or FIFA SOCCER 12?
FIFA is bigger online bigger overall much much much more players and more creative and fun. Very few people actually prefer PES infront of FIFA but of course enough of those people exist to keep the PES franchise going pretty strong.
I booted up FIFA 11 to gauge just how much has changed and the differences really are quite striking. The Tactical Defending feels entirely alien to begin with but stick with it and it makes FIFA 12 feel like a brand new, and more realistic football experience. The King is dead. Long live the King FIFA 12!
