GamesMaster has set the bar for the new FIFA12 game with a praise-filled review and impressive 94% rating. The magazine points out, “The new emphasis on precision dribbling makes each encounter a mini game of human chess.” Much praise is due to the new Impact Engine, which they comment, “no two collisions are alike… players fall as they would in real life; meaning reckless tackles of a mid-air rendezvous can carry a high risk injury.”
Within its four-page review, there is minimal criticism of the game and lots of focus on the improved movement and ability of the players. GamesMaster mentions how FIFA developers implemented tweaks to “iron out some of the foibles of defending that have irritated on a yearly basis.” As well as, the usefulness of ‘containment’, since “it allows you to keep pace with the forward and shepherd them away from danger and towards tactically unfavorable positions.” This game is wholeheartedly for the football fan that has, “exhausted FIFA1 and is thirsty for a new challenge.”
To read the full review along with new looks at BioShock: Infinite, Skyward Sword, Batman, Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3, pick up issue 243 of Games Master, which hits store shelves on Monday.
