As Deadspin points out, the new Player Impact Engine that is supposed to make in-game collisions more realistic in FIFA 12 (and its recently released demo) has already spawned a whole genre of YouTube videos called "FIFA impact fail." That's obviously not a good thing a week away from the game's full release.
Though there have been many complaints about the oversensitivity to the slightest of touches in the demo, the video above shows that it has actually made Gerard Pique far more realistic. Given the fact that Pique is increasingly known for his many public displays of affection with both Shakira and former teammates, his touchy style of play in this clip appears to be spot on.
Granted, this could just be a problem with the demo that will be fixed in the actual game. And by "problem" I of course mean the fact that Pique does not start bleeding from the head at any point in this like he does in real life.
