FIFA 12 UK release greeted with Arsenal player

By Posted 28 Sep 2011, 08:06

With just days to go until the FIFA 12 UK release Arsenal fans will be pleased to know that Jack Wilshere will be making an appearance to help celebrate the launch of this anticipated game. For those of you who would like to meet their hero, then you will have to make your way to the Oxford Street branch of GAME – well it’s not as if he has anything else to do considering his injury.

What makes this special launch even better is the fact that Wilshere is one of the faces on the front of the box, so you will be able to have your photo taken with him and your copy of FIFA 12. However, Gigwise tells us that this will only apply to the first 80 attendees, so you had better get there early to avoid disappointment. You will only be able to purchase the game after 9am, and then have your copy signed at 4pm.

It’s not all bad news if you do not get to meet the Arsenal player, as the first person in line on Friday morning will win a brand new 3D LG LED TV, which we reported the other day. You cannot help but wonder why a game that is centered on European football was released in the US first? How many baseball, basketball and American football games have you seen released in the UK first?

Every year there is a new FIFA title, and in the past the differences with each game has only been minor. However, the version this year is different, as the changes are more distinct than they have been in the past. We have discussed some of those changes before, but the biggest is how defending has now taken on more importance.

There seems to be conflictions when it comes to rating the game, as one review would give the game a high score, while another would mark it a little lower, which you can see for yourself here. Overall though this is one game that you will need in your collection, as it is the ultimate to put on when you have a few friends around for a drink.
