As expected, with each annual release Fifa 12 promises new features and updated gameplay, this revision is no different where we are introduced to the Player Impact Engine, Tactical Defending, Precision Dribbling and Pro Player Intelligence.

There is stiff competition this year as Pro Evolution Soccer have pushed hard to close any gap that formed between the two titles over the past couple of years. In response Fifa 12 has decided to be the first out of the door with an end of September release. PES 2012 played a cunning move by releasing their demo a few weeks ago, ahead of Fifa's Demo which we saw earlier this week. From early feedback it would seem that the PES 2012 demo has enjoyed a warmer reception so far. What are your views?
