Let me just say that this game has ALOT to offer. I am not even a soccer fan and I found this game very enjoyable. There are so many clubs to choose from so there is no shortage of variety of competition. I dont know how well all the previous FIFA games played because this was my first one but it is amazing. I haven't even played it online yet so everyone who is saying that the whole experience is online dont listen to them. You can find a whole lot of enjoyment just out of local play! Especially if you like being a manager of a team and all of that nice simulation. I've owned Madden 12, I am a huge football fan, and I can say that FIFA 12 easily matches up to it. Whenever you are playing a game, it actually feels like you are at a real game! Especially if you own a pair of surround sound headphones. EA just did a great job with this game. It is something new and unique and it could even get more people interested in Soccer! I would say buy it. Even if you have to buy it used. You could be missing out on some online passes but like I said. There is a whole lot of enjoyment in store just from local play! I hope this was helpful and thanks for reading!

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.
