    UEFA Euro 2012 is a decent DLC that thrives through authenticity and the amount of content.

    Cheap but not cheap enough, EA Sports have smartly ditched the discs - and also much of the content. To boot, the gameplay is identical to '12. [June 2012, p.106]

    UEFA Euro 2012 disappoints. Not every playable mode works, and from a technical standpoint less improvements have been made in comparison to other tournament editions like Euro 2008 or World Cup 2010. The Expedition mode is the most interesting of the bunch, but doesn't even come close compared to the Ultimate Team modes from regular Fifa-titles.

    UEFA Euro 2012 is a nice little extra if you just have to have a game for the tournament, but it´s by no means an essential buy for FIFA 12 players.

    A celebration of the European soccer championship that only offers a few new game modes and updated rosters.

    UEFA Euro 2012 is a rather disappointing expansion to FIFA 12. National teams and a few new and rather boring modes is not enough to justify this as good representation of this summers biggest football event.

    This is a very dissapointing product from EA Sports. This DLC is way too expensive when you look at how little content you get for your money. You can't play through the qualifying groups, can't play any other mode online except for the main Euro tournament. But the biggest dissapointment is that only about half of the teams are licensed. So there are alot of **** players which is outrageous.

    EA, I love the FIFA series and I have played every game since FIFA 97 but I'm furious of how bad this entry is

    Basically what you get for a large sum of money is 8 stadiums and changed player ratings. Expedition mode is a great idea in theory, however the execution isn't good, as I find you go in a circle, after beating a bad team, your team isn't good enough to beat a better team, so you go back to playing the bad team. With only half the teams licensed, and even less with proper kits (includes fake kits for both hosts- Poland and Ukraine), the experience is poor. The only good things is the menu and in-game presentation, but they do not make up for the frustration of spending 15 quid on almost nothing. Expand

    As a huge FIFA fan and a particular fan of the international competition efforts from EA, I had high hopes for the Euro 2012 expansion pack. Despite rumours that EA had binned the development off and handed it over to Double Helix games and the complete lack of news coming from the EA headquarters, as a loyal FIFA buyer, these issues were simply brushed under the carpet. It's a FIFA game, it must be good, right? Unfortunately not. First impressions were actually quite good, the layout is very nice and the atmosphere of the tournament is spot on. The expedition mode is a nice touch aswell. But, it doesn't take long for the faults to become blindingly apparent. Firstly, EA's claim to have "over 50 FIFA registered playable nations" is the grandest piece of misleading advertising I've seen in a very, very long time. Yes, there are 50 playable nations, but many of them aren't licensed, including no less than the two co-hosts of the tournament, Poland and Ukraine. If you were hoping to get Wales to the finals, you'll be doing so with the likes of Gareth Belt and Craig Belmont as your shining stars. That leads nicely onto my second point, because I've made a mistake there, because no, you can't take Wales to the Euro Finals and thats because, rather strangely, the qualification campaign is not playable, making the whole games playability very short. You have a selection of the 4 final groups and you can only rearrange them to include other nations, other nations undoubtedly filled with fake players, kits and emblems. I'm both genuinely upset and appalled with the UEFA Euro 2012 expansion pack for FIFA 12 and the lack of game modes and effort put into its conception by EA. The rumours that Double Helix, creators of Silent Hill Homecoming, were going to be the developers of their first football game went down like a storm in a tea cup on the online forums. Unfortunately, their effort would have probably been far superior to this diabolical shambles offered by EA. Expand

    It's that time of year! Every football fan is already excited for this summers tournament and like every gaming fan excited about the release of FIFA's new game. However; this was a total let down. Firstly I was disappointed that the game didn't have a feature where you could qualify for the tournament, so you're pretty much playing 3 group games then a knock out stage which once you have won is pointless playing it again. FIFA has always been good at providing detail in there games but this is lacking so much compared to similar tournament releases since I have grown up as a kid. Playing this game provides me with no excitemtent, I want to be able to start from the beginning of qualifying, pick my own team with my own players making it my own. I would not reccomend buying this game even if it is £15. I am now back playing FIFA 12. Expand

    Ignore my rating of 10 in previous review. That was made in error!

    What a disappointment. Where do I even start? Lacking plenty of licensed
    teams. OK so a few fake kits are one thing, but having teams full of fake names harks back to the bad old days of PES. Grr No qualifying mode. This is a massive part of football tournaments. EA said they weren't popular in previous games? Doubt this can be true. It's really buggy. I've had multiple crashes that have required a restart of my PS. Commentators have been saying things that just weren't relevent or true. Playing online I was told that I'd already qualified after winning 2 games. I hadn't won either of them! You can sort out your substitutes before a game, but go and try and select them during a match and they will be a set of completely different players! Not helpful. After the match I attempted to find the highlights of the game so that I could rewatch a fine goal. Not possible! They removed this great feature. God knows why. I though at least the gameplay would be fine - using FIFA 12's should mean that side of things were still great? Wrong. Players seem far less responsive and matches seem slow and sluggish. Not good. Maybe they can patch some of the issues but it's still a very disappointing effort and, quite frankly, a massive waste of money. AVOID!!!! Expand
