Apr 30, 2012Diehard enthusiasts of the series are more likely to get a kick out of this DLC to FIFA 12 than just the average fan. 1800 Microsoft points is asking a lot for just a couple of new add-ons, though. Sticking with your standard issue copy is plenty and should hold everyone over until the next one. Of course, it's still a beautifully made title and still reigns as king in the world of fútbol gaming.
Apr 25, 2012Changes from FIFA'12 you'll notice
Smarter through balls, especially from mid to wing.
Smarter/more realistic juking of goaltender at close range.
The game feels tweaked a baby bit slower in some situations. For example, rebounds off the keeper feel more realistic and button mashing clears feel more contested. Collision detection feels improved. Juking before you pass feels more effective.
The shooting feels tweaked so that less balls have wild variance (more new player friendly. It's too soon to tell if it's been dumbed down).
I'd ignore the reviews from garbage sites like Game Informer. They clearly have not played Fifa '12 at all and do not understand soccer.
My review is from a lifelong Men's A(top div recreational) soccer player who has a solid brain for the game but lacking a bit of athleticism :)… Expand
Apr 28, 2012I think this DLC is quite a good one, I don't really pay attention to the players names of who I play with, I more pay attention to the gameplay and the different ways you can play the game. Overall, I think the Expedition is a very good addition, it is something that isn't finished in 5 minutes, if you want to complete it you must play at least 159 games. Also, I like it that it starts in the final 4 groups, otherwise the online EURO 2012 competition would be nearly impossible unless you were very good at playing FIFA, but with you only having to play 6 matches, it is possible for more people to get the achievement available for completing it. Overall, I think the DLC is a decent one, and for the price of 1800 Microsoft points is worth it.… Expand
Apr 27, 2012It's not a good DLC, but :
-Poland jerseys are fake but the names are right so ok 6/10 can do.

Apr 25, 2012Beware! Don't buy this! Most Teams have no original kits and even the names are generic !. Even Ukaraine and Poland are unlicensed!
You can not play the qualification, all game modes are single-player. Online it's only 1vs1.
Gameplay and graphics are just like FIFA12 and there are lots of freezes and bugs.… Expand
Apr 27, 2012EA released a add on to fifa12 instead of shipping out a over priced game which was good news
They brought out something that may cause a few nose bleeds.
Lets Start with the positives
...................................opps...that's right there are none unless a lick of paint floats your boat.
Where do we start.
* Lets start with whats in the DLC, EA have not listened to their fan base and ignored a qualifying mode leading to the tournament similar to world cup 2010, this gave some life to the product but in this case you get the tournament and that's it (yes what a bore as you can do this on fifa 12 anyway)
* Expedition mode....somewhat worked on fifa street but doesn't need an Einstein to work out this would not work on fifa12/euro12
. And yes it doesn't in fact its awful.
*Unlicensed Squads in fact 40% ish including BOTH host nations and im not even going to bother with going into the legal issues surround EA's false advertising of this product.
*No customisation......that's right you cannot customise your squad so you have to play squad players that will not be playing in Euro 12. FANS WANT TO PLAY THE GAME AND PLAYERS THEIR WAY EA.
*You cannot play new international teams in normal FIFA mode so you cannot create your own tournament .
*Players disappear from your squad during the tournament and new players arrive....Did they miss the plane? Did they just go home and sulk?
*When starting Euro 12 sometimes it asks you to purchase the game even though you already have, meaning you cant play.
*Game frequently crashes....So far ive managed to only play 2 game before crashing, so expect to play double the games in tournaments and pray if your winning it doesn't crash.
*Lack of atmosphere in game specially when you actually win the tournament .
EA clearly have committed suicide with this product and heads should roll, this is not only ripping off their fan base but also causes major damage to consumer confidence, specially after FIFA12 was clearly a step back from FIFA11 with far to many bugs and unbalanced game play.
Word of WARNING EA lightening can strike twice, you got a kicking many years ago for being arrogant and lazy.… Expand
