    I agree that the new defending controls are a bit tricky to grasp at first, but once mastered they actually make the game feel a lot more realistic (also, don't forget you can hold R1/RB to have an AI defender double up on an attacker. I don't think the AI is that difficult though.

    Well, I was gonna make this the first FIFA I ever bought but it doesn't sound like this is the best one to introduce me to the series. Should I buy this or go back and get FIFA 11?

    Interesting, nice review Nath. I wasn't completely convinced by the demo, defending did feel a little unusual although that often means it'll be better once you've got it down. I feel as though I don't play much single player footy any more as I don't really have the time, but sounds like the multiplayer may be where it's at here. Shame the AI is still telepathic though.

    "I found that I could keep the ball with passes for a certain amount of time, but then the game would inexplicably make a short pass go wrong, thus conceding possession needlessly. Like the ball literally going in a different direction to where the intended recipient is waiting." This. I downloaded the early release and I tweaked all the passing settings and more and this still kept happening. In the end I just thought I had a dodgy aim but it's good to know it wasn't just me! As for the rest of the review I agree, though online wasn't that enjoyable as FIFA 11 (but that's probably down to me being rubbish at tactical defending and opponents rouletteing up the pitch past all my defenders). Fair review and I agree with the score :)
