This program can no longer be downloaded. Take a look at FIFA 15 Ultimate Team instead.
FIFA 12 is a polished soccer sim for Android in which you get to chase glory as a player and a manager.
Arguably, FIFA 12 is the best soccer game for Android so far. The gameplay has been improved even further by the addition of 360-degree player movement and gesture-based controls that allow you to make passes, shots and skill moves with great precision.
Defending has been tweaked in FIFA 12, bringing it more in line with the tactical approach taken by the PC and console version of FIFA 12. It can be frustrating at first, but you soon realize it makes the game more skillful.
In terms of game modes, the Android version FIFA 12 isn't as packed as the iOSversion. However, the league mode lets you take charge of one of 500 officially licensed teams from 22 licensed leagues and attempt to lead them to glory.
In terms of its looks, FIFA Soccer 12 improves upon the previous release. The whole thing is nicely presented, with a slick menu interface (similar to that of the main version of FIFA 12), featuring some great songs. In-game graphics look very crisp, although some of the animation feels a little sluggish at times, especially when players are running with the ball.
FIFA 12 must go down as the most consummate and complete Android soccer games far.
