Although we're yet to see the full, post-embargo sprouting, enough FIFA 12 reviews have popped up to give a feel for how this is going to go. Spoilers! Stunningly.
In short: not a peep below 90 percent, and piles of glowing praise punctuated by repeated use of the word "beautiful". Looks like EA Sports really got its game face on for this one.
We'll be adding more reviews here as we find them and, as always, appreciate your assistance in the comments thread.
FIFA 12 arrives on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this week, hitting the US first on September 27.
