Are you a football purist? Do you relish realism? Are you a control freak? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions (and you haven’t done already) then you need to start using FIFA 12 manual controls!

Manual controls in FIFA 12 give you complete control over your game. They give you complete freedom to pass wherever and however you want.

Many people feel that FIFA 12’s assisted controls restrict their play. Assisted controls limit your play and your pass is only as good as the pass receiver’s run.

The beauty of manual controls is that you have full control over where you play the ball. Your passing’s completely independent from your team-mates movement and you can play the ball into space.

Admittedly, if you’ve never used manual controls before it’s a pretty steep learning curve but a very worthwhile one.

Those players that stick with practice and persevere really do get to play FIFA 12 in the purest, most rewarding way!
