    Anyone else partaking in this ? Going to get one on launch day from Morrisons with this and everybody's golf (or maybe uncharted)

    I know it doesn't have the impact engine but I hope it isn't just FIFA 11 rehashed because I thought that was shit.

    At least it has online so I'll be able to get humiliated by children.

    I was all over this being a FIFA lover but with it not having the same balance as 12 then unfortunately going to have to give it a miss until it equals the console version. Shame really as was looking forward to it!

    I was thinking of giving this a miss but watching videos like this are turning that into an impossible mission...



    I know itīs basically FIFA 11 but thatīs still miles better than any other portable football game. It will probably be an impulse digital buy some day...probably on the same day I get the Vita...

    I cancelled and will probably try and pick it up cheaper at a later date, based on feedback here mainly.

    I just can't see me enjoying the backwards step - I play Fifa 12 most days, and it has become second nature.

    If you thought FIFA 11 was "shit", why in the hell would you get this?

    arggggh - from that review of shopto's

    FIFA 12′s precision dribbling and tactical defending is replicated well.
    I really want it, but have been badly hit in the past with the crappy 3DS version

    It's not actually called FIFA 12, this.

    The rear touch shoot is the killer feature for me. I might actually be able to score. I always know where I want to put it but can never get the accuracy.

    It will be nice to finally get this and establish which of the reviewers have actually played the game, it seems about 50/50 between tactical defending is in and out.

    Really looking forward to it though, looks ace.

    Quote from the review about the defending

    It’s when you get onto the pitch that you really notice the quality. FIFA 12′s precision dribbling and tactical defending is not replicated on the PS Vita version, however you are still given good control over your players, making for what is generally a tight match. Passing is crisp and players run intelligently into space, allowing for some impressive plays, while defenders close down space, not leaving room for attackers to get even the slightest glimpse at goal. It’s just like playing FIFA on console, which is the biggest compliment you can give the game really
    Was going to pick this up but was worried i would find it hard to adapt to the 'old' defending after playing 12 so much but the reviewer makes the game sound pretty bloody good. Im swaying again towards buying it!

    You are not helping zombielvis. Not helping at all :evil:

    Must be strong and resist the obvious stinker in the launch line up - so many more games, but the lure of fifa........

    I think that's Reality Fighter from the reviews I've read. Or ModNation if you believe one of the reviews I've read where it got 3/10 (Destructoid?).

    God I am week. Fifa pre-ordered. Oh well, I have played Fifa12 enough to warrant the extra expense.

    Judging by that review video with the semi-retarded American fellow with breasts, my fear that it might be too easy to score using the touchpad seems to have been realised. Also it doesn't look very comfortable using the vita whilst trying not to hold the back

    Yeah I'm thinking that too. touch top hand corner of back of Vita, goal. Could get boring real quick.

    Fingers crossed you can turn off all the touch screen stuff.

    Indeed, just hope with touchscreen off you arent just left with FIFA 11,I want the option of finger swiping the free kicks but possibly not the touchscreen shooting.

    I reckon a lot of purchases are going to end up like that.. Digital downloads are just too easy.

    Just hope you don't want to play it within two days of buying, knowing PSN speeds as we do

    Well with all the recent maintenance i'm hoping they've upped the server capacity as they know there will be an increase of traffic with the Vita so you never know maybe we'll be able to actually access it come launch day ;)

    If you mean Jeff from Giant Bomb then I suspect he was playing the game on the lowest difficulty though as he admitted he didn't understand soccer as he was complaining that the game didn't explain what a throughball was. As we all know FIFA on its lowest difficult is piss easy to play as the opposition pretty much stand around.

    Also, I'm pretty sure you can turn off the touchscreen controls in FIFA's menus and just play the game as normal with the sticks and buttons.
