Can a hand held video game really mimic real life? The new PSVita is arguably the best hand held system around, and FIFA 12 looks as if you are running on the grass itself.
FIFA 12 producer Matt Prior filmed a walkthrough of the game on Vita, and between the PR catchphrases about how easy its new controls will be, he offers insight into how players will most likely respond to the touchscreen handling. Prior says that most players begin with traditional controls, but once they use the front- and back-screen touch options to switch players, pass and shoot, they never go back.
"FIFA 12 on Vita is the first title to use the FIFA engine in a handheld," Prior says, "and the game truly does look pretty once you peek around all those poking fingers."
This game is straight flu-sick as all hell. The touch screen capabilities are out of this world. This is definitely a "my Kung-Fu is better than yours" statement. You might as well play "Punks Jump Up to get Beat Down" by Brand Nubian while you push this at the next E3 convention.
