Seems like a few people (myself included) are having trouble accessing the marketplace, but just a heads up if you want to check it out.

Fifa 12 demo is the reason why Live is down.

How long is it until 'silver' members can download it?

I've only played a few matched but first impressions are in:

Crossing is VASTLY improved. My first goal was a header from Fabregas running from midfield to power home, something rarely seen in 11.

With that, my 4th goal was a diving header from Messi, again, anyone who played 11 will know, this can be a rarity

Commentary is at least different, still seems pretty stiff though.

Defending is better but still seem a bit suss with over the top and regular through balls.

Why Rooney is the title character yet Man Utd are omitted in favour of City is a bit baffling.

Ball is in the field more, breaking loose, passes going wayward - closest player no longer seems magnetically attracted to the ball.

Pressing the back button give instantaneous control of the keeper. I would have preferred the inevitable use of the back button to be used for bringing the field map up when required.

Better control of low hard shots - I can see these becoming the majority of peoples goals.

Crowd are still cardboard cutouts, although at least sound marginally better.

The close control system means that you can retain and pass out of very tight situations.

The player impact (not living up to the 'injuries every minute' as perhaps seen in previews) engine actually seems to make the game more fluid. No more canned animations for certain scenarios

Quick players can outrun a defence. Messi should be able to breeze past low level defenders.

There's now a quicker throw-in animation with a player retrieving and throwing the ball quickly - ditto subs, I could skip them as soon as they appeared. No longer a team is guaranteed to necessarily use full sub quota.

This is for those unable to download and wish a detailed comparison between 11 and 12
