FIFA 12 is one of the most highly anticipated game releases among football (soccer to all you gamers in North America) fans this year, following up on the highly successful FIFA 11. The opportunity to test the game through a Fifa 12 demo reveals some of the features which distinguish FIFA 2012 over the previous version. While the game is similar to FIFA 11 in many ways, it plays more realistically and fixes some of the issues which may have bothered fans of previous versions.
One of the biggest improvements in FIFA 12 is the graphics; for those who felt that the players had poor skin textures and eyes in FIFA 11, FIFA 12 should offer some relief in the guise of much more realistic and natural looking players who bring the playing field to life. Another new feature which is geared toward improving the realism of the AI players is Pro Player Intelligence. This new programming makes AI players more aware of their strengths and those of their teammates and opponents, which they can then use as they strategize their next moves. This can lead to more interesting and believable game play. With more challenging AI players, gamers will have a lot to look forward to in terms of computerized competition.
Another big feature is Precision Dribbling. While this has always been a feature in FIFA games, it is now better than ever. If you found the controls difficult to manage in the past you will be happy to learn that in FIFA 12 the system is more responsive and makes it easier for you to control the ball.
The most noticeable change may be the new Impact Engine. Its programming is geared toward improving the physics of the game, particularly as relates to collisions between players and balls. Another exciting feature in FIFA12 is Career Mode, which simulates the effects of off-field events on player performance.
Is FIFA 12 much different from its predecessor? On first glance you may find the game very similar, apart from the graphics improvements. There are many marked improvements though and most of them take the form of enhanced programming. While these changes may seem subtle, they actually add up to quite a bit in terms of improving gameplay. All in all the features contribute to a more natural and believable gameplay experience which is sure to please fans of the FIFA franchise.
Seriously though, why wouldn’t you buy FIFA12? The new improvements to the new EA sports FIFA12 are unreal. The most noticeable difference to the player’s is the much-discussed Player Impact Engine and self-aware CPU players and teams. No longer will there be a “missile sequence” attachment of teammates trying to attack the opponent for the ball or unrealistic slide tackles where the player should be flying in the air and is not. Not to mention, as a manager or coach in Career Mode, you’ll be plagued by realistic game injuries and players emotions. The anticipation is almost over, and buying FIFA12 should be on at the top of everyone’s priorities.
Regarding the anticipated “wow-factor” if the Player Impact Engine, the demo will prove to any non-believers its worth. Controlling the players’ interactions is increasingly difficult and true to realistic situations. A player has additional abilities with the improved precision dribbling to enter circles and maneuver around opponents with ease. Additionally, the CPU players utilize their player’s strengths and weakness and add to the overall realism of playing on a team.
Let’s discuss the new features and abilities of the Career Mode. The morale of the players is a new focus of the career mode. The players will discuss why they feel they should be playing more or how they feel about their other teammates. In career mode, as a manager you’ll need to focus on keeping the team positive and develop a player’s growth.
Overall, the game is visually stunning and polished in every mode. The demo is available now as well as the option to pre-order FIFA12, if you haven’t already. Usually, some of the hype surrounding a highly anticipated game is garbage, but FIFA12 will deliver on all accounts. Don’t wait and Buy FIFA12 today.
Hopefully, you’ve already ravaged the FIFA12 demo and are anxiously waiting the September 27th in the US and September 29th in the UK FIFA12 release date. FIFA12 will be available on multiple platforms, PS3, Wii, Xbox360 and Nintendo 3DS. The most talked about aspect about the new FIFA12 seems to be the new game-changing Player Impact Engine, and significant improvements from FIFA11.
The revolutionary new Player Impact Engine takes into account the precise physics in order to influence the player’s movements and actions. The realistic interactions make the game more engaging and unpredictable in any situation. Other new features include new and improved precision dribbling. FIFA11 was great but in FIFA12 you can control the ball, and move it around without changing your player’s location. Additionally the new tactical defending system allows larger gamer input. EA said they wanted to, “bring the skill of real world defending in to FIFA,” and make each situation feel like individual battles.
Finally, the CPU players can somewhat think for themselves! In FIFA12 the computer players are infused with Pro Player Intelligence and are able to make decisions based on their player’s abilities and strengths of their surrounding teammates. The teams can base their attacks based on the players, and the weakness of their opponents. This feature will greatly impact the way the user interacts with game and how to strategize the match.
