FIFA Soccer 12

FIFA Soccer 12 goes on sale today for a variety of platforms.

The video game features more than 500 officially licensed clubs and more than 15,000 players.

Sports Illustrated's Paul Ulane says there are some major improvements in this edition.

"This is definitely a title worth buying, both for soccer fans and for casual sports video gamers. Because as boring as soccer can be, this video game makes soccer fun for just casual gamers," said Ulane.

Big soccer fans will be able to find their favorite players.

Prices range from $40 to $60, depending on the platform.
