Key Game Features

  • Pro Player Intelligence - AI players have been infused with self-awareness and aptitude, enabling them to make decisions based on their own skills as well as the strengths and attributes of their teammates. Players who possess exceptional vision, for example, will see opportunities for through balls that other players won't. Real Madrid's Kaká will be more likely to pick out a run from a teammate farther away than a player with poorer vision. Additionally, teams will vary their attack based on the strengths of their players on the pitch, and the weaknesses of opposing players, creating a more authentic experience and greater variety of matches.
  • Tactical Defending - Redesigned defending mechanism fundamentally changes the approach to defending by placing equal importance on positioning, intercepting passes and tackling at the right moment. Tactics and timing are crucial.
  • True Injuries - The Player Impact Engine monitors contact between players in real-time, analyzing the force of the collision and impact on the body to detect real injuries, creating a deeper more challenging Career Mode. Manage new types of injuries and the risk of sending a player onto the pitch who isn't fully healed.
  • Player Impact Engine - Two years in development, the new physics engine is built to deliver real-world physicality in every interaction on the pitch. Experience an infinite variety of natural and believable outcomes in every contact. Players feel more resilient on the ball, push and pull during the fight for possession, and recover from light challenges more easily, preserving their natural momentum.
  • Precision Dribbling - Enjoy new ways to take on opponents, more time on the ball to make decisions, and complete control of the pace of the game. Utilize close dribble touches in tight spaces, on the wings, and even while fending off an opponent.
  • Complete Authenticity - Over 500 officially licensed clubs and more than 15,000 players.
  • New Commentary Teams - For the first time ever, two broadcast teams will be featured - Martin Tyler and Alan Smith and Clive Tyldesley and Andy Townsend. Fans can customize audio to their preferred commentators for any matches.

I bought this game for my mac thinking it would be a steal at 10 dollars. The game runs fine for me when I put the graphics at low quality settings. Honestly I can live with the mediocre graphics, they're not that bad, especially for a football game. The gameplay is fun just as you would expect from recent FIFA games. The problem with the mac version is that there's no "CD Key" included to access the online play -- this is important so you can download things like squad updates for your teams. I don't think that EA actually created an official Mac version of the game (there's nothing on their website), as the product key given to you when you purchase this won't work as the "CD Key" you need to access online play. If you think that 10 dollars are worth it for all of the offline features of FIFA then go ahead and buy it. I will try contacting Amazon to see if they can provide me with this CD key so I can play online.

I purchased this game and is running perfectly with a MacBook Pro 13" with 2.3 GHz Intel Core i5 and 4GB RAM. By default the game has the lowest video settings but I setup with 2x MSAA, High Quality, 1024x768 Res in full screen and is awesome!

The graphics work fine on my Mac Mini 2011 (2.5 Ghz i5, 8 gb RAM, intel graphics 3000). I'm sure it's a bit smoother for nicer graphics cards but an occasional hiccup doesn't bother me. I tried it with the keyboard, and it is fairly difficult. Worth the money to get a controller.

I bought this game and I was very excited. I had seen gameplay on it and wanted it very badly. However, after installing it, i went to play it and it crashed halfway through a game. But i can't blame the game since i didn't check to make sure my graphics were adequate to run it. Just wish EA didn't have such high requirement when i've already payed over $1000 for this mac. The graphics reqs should be based on the minimum model since apple is very advanced anyways.

I got this game thinking it was going to run the same way that in Windows 7 via bootcamp, the result is that the game just runs terrible. I installed the game on a MacBook Pro 13"2010, with C2D 2.66Ghz and NVIDA 320M 8GB RAM, on windows 7 via bootcamp with the same computer I can play with max settings except anti aliasing on constant 60+ FPS, when playing on Mac (OS X Lion latest updates etc..) the game really strugles to run decently on the lowest settings possible, besides of that there are a lot of artifacts on the grass, the only way to play is on lowest settings on windowed mode, I feel I just threw 40$ to the trash, by what I've experienced I can say the problem is graphics and video drivers on Mac OS X, not the machine hardware specs, I hope EA really do something about this with an update.

Other reviews stated that FIFA 12 would not work on there various macs. I have a late-2008 15" MBP, 2.66 GHz Core 2 Duo with 512 MB for graphics and the game is fully playable. There is noticeable drag at times and the visual quality is no where near console level. The crowd is pixelated at times, but overall the gameplay isn't affected. I have not noticed a crash or freeze issue after playing the game for several months now.

The new features for career mode are great, playing as player-manager or manager. Player growth is fixed and the scout system and youth squad feature create some fun when trying to unearth young talent for you squad. One issue in player growth is related to player potential. EA has a preset potential for each player in the game and reviewers have noted that each player should reach their potential and with playing time can exceed the preset potential. I have played 5 seasons with high potential players and have not seen a player reach the preset limit even when the player has reached age 27 or 28, with playing time.

I would give this game 5-stars if the CONCACAF Champions League or similarly modeled tournament was added for the MLS and Premera Division seasons.

What the other reviews are saying are true. I Installed the game on a 2011 iMac and experienced a crash on my very first match. The game runs smoothly, but the grass does in fact go from good detail to pixelated during match play regardless of resolution and MSAA. Watching the detail of the grass randomly change every couple of seconds pretty much destroys any enjoyment or lasting playability of this game. The EA forms are filled with issues and bugs that are crippling this game and to make matters worse the patches are a pain to install. Even though I picked this game up for half price I'm regretting my decision. Any long time fan of FIFA or former console player will be disappointed along with anyone excepting a half decent product.
