We knew that EA were to release an early download of FIFA 12 today, and that some fans of Manchester United might feel a little uncomfortable playing the game. However, we now thought that we would discuss what some of our readers thought. It is hoped that a review from some early players will be able to give us some sort of perspective on the game, and for the most part they seem to be positive.
Let’s get down to the most important issue first, and that’s the £17 price tag for a game that will only last a few days. If you are willing to pay that price, then how can you truly moan about the game? Some may say that you are stupid for paying that kind of money on a game that you will not be able to play soon — but look how much you pay to watch a movie in a cinema just for a few hours.
There was a suggestion that FIFA 12 was no different to last year’s version, and that PES 2012 is a much better game. However, most fans of EA’s FIFA franchise do not agree. There have certainly been some major advancements with this new version, such as tactical defending, more precise dribbling etc.
EA has definitely taken a risk with this new game, with some people finding it hard to adapt. However, it will not take long to play the game a little different, and once they do it will flow, just as it has done in the past. What most early reviews show is that there are not that many glitches in the game, and this could be the deciding factor when it comes to buying FIFA 12 in a few days time. If you feel like you have nothing to do on Sunday or Monday, then why not spend £17 — better than wasting it on alcohol?
