Got more confidence in this series than all of other EA's lineups put together!

Roll on FIFA 13, we eagerly anticipate..

The crowd?? I love FIFA, but the player models severely lack. It takes away from the realism.

I'm at a loss here, which aspect of the player models lacks? They look pretty darn fab to me. Is there a sweeter sports video game on the market when it comes to capturing the realism of a player's bodily appearance combined with their physical movement? I don't think so.

It's a special thing, isn't it? I lost all faith in every video sports series over the past five years, with the exception of this one. There's not one other sports game I even think about anymore. Nice to know you can still anticipate one decent present under the Christmas tree every year!

From the Videogamer preview:

"This new defending system came at a cost, though, with FIFA 12 feeling like a much slower affair than its predecessors."

Seriously, they need to get someone who isn't one of the Nintendo/ADHD generation to do their game reviews. Slowing the pace of FIFA 12 was one of the best additions to the series, ever!

Overall, I agree with you. However, the overall flow of the game can feel somewhat... I don't know... stagnant? I find raising run frequency and marking helps make things more active, but I still get a sense the AI players lack urgency in their actions. For example, when reacting to 50/50 balls in the box, covering or making runs into open space, closing down the recipient of a pass, etc. Sure user input can overcome some of these hiccups, but we can only control one player at a time (or two if you count calling the 2nd defender).

Speeding up the gameplay obviously isn't the answer, but something is off and I feel it is at least somewhat related to how tactical defending (which I greatly prefer to "legacy defending") was implemented.

I used custom tactics and raised most CPU teams' Aggression to 80+. That improved the gameplay (for me anyway) so that the CPU wasn't as passive. It also helped increase CPU fouls.

I'm not a big fan of screenshots. Most of them are from angles you would never use in a game. I think the player models look pretty good in FIFA but the textures on all EA games look poor to me.

I agree QB. There is something about the gameplay that is just, well you said it, stagnant. The unpredictability isn't really there and I often feel like matches play out the same, get to my sweet-spots, beat the CPU on the same moves, and get results. I like tactical defending but without the CPU consistently shooting from range or sending in crosses it becomes very easy to stop the CPU when the talent level is almost comparable.

Speed is still the king in FIFA and as I've increased the pace in my roster the results have improved.

I felt the same way with Madden until last year's game. When I started playing Fifa 5 or 6 years ago, I really wasnt into it as much, but still enjoyed it. Now, I cannot get enough of FIFA lol.

There is something not right about them. As far as a game with realistic player models? Try Sony MLB 12 The Show

Yes I agree about the textures also, again MLB The Show has great textures.

Does anyone know if we will be able to play/manage a National Team in FIFA 13's Career Mode?
