so ive played game after game after game simply trying to get use to the fact i can't hold A to tackle .. after a years of playing FIFA it is unbelievably hard to adjust and i simply cant get the hang of it .. im a fairly good fifa player so i set my games up one world class and have it barca v OM .. the games basically consist of me trying to get the ball .. mostly its , if you lose it , they WILL score or get an easy chance to score. So i ask myself .. is one simple little thing being missing such as holding A to tackle enough to make me not buy this game?? .. i love everything else about the game .. but , i am REALLY struggling to enjoy the game-play , simply because its such a major change .. of course this is just all my opinion :)

You do realise that you can change back to the "legacy" way in the Xbox 360 Controller settings. I'm also finding this very difficult to master so you're not the only one http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/images/icons/icon12.gif

Love to see people sad cause they can't master a game that still has to come... did you plan to win 1000/1000 on day one? :p

Playing, playing, playing and we'll get used to it.
Well maybe online this could be a problem with the lag, but let's see.

The thing with defending is there are simply too many buttons to press.

Player running at you? Well, the tutorial says use LT to jockey.

But wait, dude's running too fast! Don't worry, use RT to add some speed to your jockeying.

Hang on, so you've LT and RT, then what about A to "contain"? Does it actually do anything? Never mind, let's try. That's LT, RT and A. Oh wait, he's already pass me.

No fear, call a 2nd defender with RB! Now, what should I do? Run with RT back to cover the 2nd defender? But wait, if I do that, I'd have to release the RB button, and the second defender would stay off...

... by the time I decide which button I want to press, the opposing team has went on to score.

Also, when you press B previously, the 2nd defender actually goes in. Now, RB simply sends a goon to "contain".

Damn if I want him contained, I'd have contain him myself.

The defending makes me wanna send my pre-ordered copy of the game to the orphanage.

I'll switch to legacy control tonight and truly enjoy the demo as I should.

It's all about predicting the pass. Contain the player...wait for the pass...intercept the pass...profit.

This is so true.

I absolutely despise the defending. I've tried to get used to it, played a ton of games, still no progress. GARBAGE.

On the menu before starting the match go to the bottom where it says "xbox 360 controller" then go to the bottom to defending click on it and choose legacy defending.
