Controls respond very well. Practice does make perfect it is not a beginners game that's for sure. Finding matches online is a breeze and there are a lot of game modes to choose from. Excellent game the series can only get better.
FIFA '12 is my first PS3 soccer experience. Overall shooting gets to be quite frustrating at first until you get the hang of it. Physics are great. If you are not familiar with the rules of the sport you will be caught offsides more often than not. Virtual Pro mode is quite interesting and the Player/Manager combo will allow you to call the shots and take the shots. This was a fun game and I cannot wait for the future releases, However, EA's Online Pass and all that stuff is necessary for the full experience. I hope this helps you decide on what to rent next.
FIFA 12 is a okay game, but I have to say that the online gaming section of it is sort of lame. You have to subscribe with a fee to really enjoy the online gaming experience. i personally don't feel that this game would be worth the extra fees to play online, nor should there be a fee in the fist place. Again this game is just okay.
