It is not surprising that when it comes to speaking about the best soccer games, two names come up immediately: Pro Evolution 2012 and FIFA 12. Since they are two of the most amazing soccer simulators ever, the comparison is unavoidable.
Fifa 12 vs PES 2012: Approach
One of the most important aspects to be compared is the graphics. Both PES 2012 and FIFA 12 attempt to transmit a sense of realism. However, in the case of Pro Evolution 2012 the approach is more environment-oriented while in FIFA the approach is more towards the graphic quality.
In FIFA, the collision system is one of its most striking features since it really contributes to the realistic environment in the game. In my opinion, FIFA 12 seems to have won the battle in terms of playability, ball contact and physical collision. However, although FIFA 12 offers some nice details like the players’ official shirts and their realistic facial features, PES 2012 has introduced much richer details in the whole environment. This can be seen in the players’ gestures and hair, which give more expression to players’ reactions and gestures. To exemplify this, take a look to these game play videos:

Which is the best? Well, I think it depends on whether you are looking for high-quality actions and movements or a rich detail-oriented environment.
