    Finally the PC version of FIFA 12 features the same quality of its console counterpart, both in terms of graphics and gameplay. So you got some new, cool features: from Tactical Defending to Impact Engine, from a brand new career mode to Online Seasons. Maybe FIFA 12 is not the perfect soccer game, but it's damn close.

    FIFA 12 takes several small steps forward that make it hard to go back to an older entry of the series in a matter of hours.

    FIFA's series latest version makes enough enhancements to continue the saga forward march to perfect simulation. With the Impact Engine and Tactical Defending, there's too much to learn this time.

    Fifa 12 may not be as well balanced as the predecessor, but the multitude of features compensates for that very well. A very good soccer simulation.

    One of those timeless classics that just can't go wrong. The new offensive and defensive features are a great addition to a gameplay already close to perfection.

    Online multiplayer is FIFA 12's saving grace. Without it, it's a reasonably good game with fair graphics, deep defense system and a promising, albeit somewhat unnatural, player impact mechanics. With multiplayer, it's the best soccer game in quite some time.

    The tactical defending system is superb. You need to manage your player with high precision in both attack and defense. This makes it harderThe tactical defending system is superb. You need to manage your player with high precision in both attack and defense. This makes it harder but also much more fun. The game benefit players who are tactical in their passing and movement, more than the game styles that just rush against the opponent's goal. The way it is played, it looks and feels as football do in real life. EA have taken a huge step forward with the game realism in this FIFA sequel. As a longtime FIFA player it take some time to get use to the new concept, but it is really worth it. I think I have managed to change the way to play the defense, but I have not grasped the dribbling yet. I see this as an inspiring challenging and hopefully it will improve my game ability, as well. It´s just one problem, I can´t stop playing. Expand

    Perfect game! This is the best PC football, which i played in my life. I am the biggest PES fan, but I must admit that FIFA is much better this year.
