P*N New This Week: 25th September 2011

Welcome to Platform Nation’s New This Week, where we inform you, the reader, on all of the game releases you should be looking out for.

My pick for this week is:

FIFA 12:


In FIFA 12, A “trinity” of major gameplay changes have been implemented; these are the Impact Engine, Tactical Defending, and Precision Dribbling. The Impact Engine improves collision variety, accuracy, and momentum preservation. A new advanced procedural animation system is used along with collision physics to produce different results depending on the players and physical forces involved. The new Tactical Defending system aims to change the approach to defending by placing equal importance on positioning, intercepting passes and tackling. When defending there will be more of an emphasis on slowing attackers down and containing them, and pressuring them into making mistakes. The Precision Dribbling feature allows players to dribble whilst shielding, meaning you can still move around the pitch whilst holding players off, rather than being rooted to the spot. Close control has been added below jogging as a way of allowing players to take smaller, more frequent touches, keeping the ball closer and keeping tighter control.

My View: Yes, I know it’s another FIFA game, and it will pretty much still have the exact same features as the previous game with a couple of different tweaks. I’m really not a fan of football/soccer in the real world, but when it comes down to playing the games I really enjoy playing them. And because I like to always have the newest game in a franchise I just had to choose this as my pick of the week. I’m excited to see the new precision dribbling and see how the impact engine works.
