the fifa video game franchise is one of the most popular worldwide.
when ’12 came out, there were a few major things that were missing from the previous year’s release.
the most notable to me was the elimination of offline profiles. I forget exactly what they were called in ’11 but it allowed you to play friends locally and it’ll TRACK YOUR STATS.
this is especially cool if you’re a stats nerd like me. from wins to goals scored to red cards, it was all there…
woulda been nice to keep that info in-game… that NEEDS to come back. I’m guessing it was removed to make room for the online head to head feature. it’s cool and all… I mean I really like how you can get relegated or promoted like an actual team, but you have to play online.
this leads me to my next peeve…
people who play games with their 56k modem need to a) not be allowed to play online and b) dragged into the street and curb stomped
I’ve played quite a number of games online and the most annoying thing that happens is LAG. the worst part is that you can’t quit. well I guess you can, but you’ll get dinged for a disconnect.
I guess those are the things that bother me with the game… love the overall gameplay, graphics, and sound (especially playing in a mexican stadium… holy drums and horns)
oh and maybe they should get rid of the viagra blue and old-school brown balls… they’re so tough to see!
