once again...EA fail at evening the playing field between CPU teammates & Opponent AI... i love the game..great graphics,the new animations look really good,the be a legend mode is a nice addition,Be a Pro mode is even better with being able to start as a teenager.. and not to glitchy at all for a first go around with "Live" goalies..the collisions looks pretty good.
but with every sports game ive played from EA in the past few years (Fifa,Madden,NHL,etc) its always the lack of skill that your teammates have and the amazing flawlessness of the computer opposition..no matter the team,no matter the player. It always seems like the team u play against is "god like" EG: NHL 12 in BAP mode,you'll notice that every pass you or your team plays across the ice or that isnt a "direct" pass to a teammate 2 feet away results in turnover...but watch the CPU..passes all day long across ice..between 3 defenders..truly takes away from an otherwise amazing game..if EA could simply adapt a way they can make your Computer AI teammates & Opponent AI players play the same..
Don't listen to the negative reviews there mad because the computer is a lot more difficult and its tough to score.This is a very realistic game i have enjoyed every minute of play.The controls are fine i didn't have a single issue.Be a pro mode is fun,also ultimate team is great.All in all i would strongly recomend this game I have played the last 5 years and this is by far the best.

I get a kick out of the people that are giving this game bad reviews. The reason the computer scores in the 3rd period when you are winning is because your AI has relax with the lead and the CPU capitalized by scoring a desperation goal.
I think that this game is above and beyond last years edition. It now feels like you are part of an actual team playing a real game.
Dont play this game if you expect to win every game you play against the computer. Its improved AI is spectular. The goalie animations and contact are a definite plus.
I recommend this game for any sports fan. Give it a try and you wont be disappointed unless you are a cry baby that can't stand to lose a game or two.
