Misses the goal by quite a bit

Soccer – it’s one really old game that has a large following all over the world. So naturally, it’s a good choice for a videogame.
FIFA Soccer 12 gives players the basics of soccer – from the passing to the shooting to the ball dribbling across the field. But there isn’t much improvement over last year’s installment.
There are differences to be sure, but those include an award section that lets you populate a city and build buildings over that city.
But the gameplay benefits from getting these awards are almost none; there’s an intercity championship that is unlocked after you get a set of awards.
But the gameplay is the same across all fields. If you’ve played FIFA Soccer 11, then you’ve played this game. The controls are all the same, the fields are the same, and the graphics are the same.
And yes, just like last year, there are no online features that let you play with or against someone outside your home.
But it doesn’t mean this version is bad. If you can get used to the controls, and have luck on your side, then you can score quite a few goals in a match (just make sure that you set each half to five minutes). It’s always a joy to see a great pass lead to a wonderful shot and goal.
But it’s just as annoying to see the opposing team get cheap goals because the AI teammates blow their assignments.
FIFA Soccer 12 will please the loyal fans of Soccer, but it will not excite anyone who doesn’t follow the sport. RENT IT.
