The news we have been providing about FIFA 12 so far has proved to be nothing but positive, from new features in the game to early reviews. However, even the seemingly perfect games have their flaws and today, courtesy of a YouTube video, we have quite a comical glitch compilation from those that have been found in the FIFA 12 demo, and the video is proving to be extremely popular on the site.
The video was posted onto the online streaming giant’s site just over a week ago and has already clocked up over 1.6 million views. It highlights the problems that players of the demo have discovered with the new Player Impact Engine, another feature in FIFA 12 that had received nothing but praise until now. The video, which can be viewed below, is titled FIFA 12 (demo) Impact Engine Fail Compilation and shows some major flaws, particularly with the revolutionary new feature.
It features football players stumbling through mid-air as if they have just been fouled, which looks like they are somersaulting or rolling around on a floating invisible platform. There is also a part in the video that makes FC Barcelona’s Lionel Messi look like a contortionist as he runs around with one leg bent out so his foot is up by his face. While the images will have some people sniggering, others may be worried about what this means for the full game.
The good news is this footage has come solely from the demo which means that hopefully EA would have had time to iron out these glitches before the full game releases. As CVG explains the developers have been the victims of such a reception before, when they released their NBA Elite 11 demo. The game got such a hammering from those who downloaded it that EA were forced into not releasing it, losing out on competing in a major sports game market.
Check out the YouTube link while you’re checking out this video for more clips of things going wrong in the ultimate football game. What do you think of these glitches? Are you worried that they might feature in the full release?
