Sports titles for handheld systems have always been a waste for me with the exception of Fifa. This game was no different.
The graphics were great. The details of the players were awesome and the sounds of the commentary and the excitement you hear when a player is closing in on a goal was just flat out cool. The overall of feeling of the game was good. It just really got you involved in the game.
The gameplay was great as well. It was very intense. Went through a season that was full of up’s and downs in the American MLS League with lots of drama. Made it to a championship where I fell down 3 dollars right at the start and then slowly crept back in the game to hit a shot in stoppage time to make it 4-3. The feeling of the intensity was real as if I was watching my favorite team go on a remarkable comeback.
Online mode is pretty competitive and when you log on it hardly ever finds anyone within your level of 1 so you end up playing people who are level 15-20 and you get stomped off the field. After a few try’s I had to give up and stick with my regular season mode which offers a lot for any fan of soccer or the Fifa seris.
Very good game and I can’t wait to get my hands on Fifa 13 through game fly which is coming up soon in my que.

I won't go into a lot of detail as you can read a professional review for that. In summary this game is missing a few modes from the console version and some of the features added to FIFA 12. However, this is still a great version of soccer and great to control on the Vita. I'm really loving the Vita (first handheld I've actually enjoyed).
1) great graphics
2) great controls
3) great game of soccer (best ever on a portable)
4) doesn't need online pass which was a suprise
1) missing some modes and features from FIFA 12
