Looks like the UEFA EURO 2012 add-on for FIFA 12 isn't going down very well. As well as reported crashes and freezes, fans are complaining that nearly half of the 53 international teams featured in the game have fake names and strips.
The unlicensed teams include one of the co-host nations, Ukraine, as well as Belarus, Estonia, Macedonia, Slovakia and Wales. In addition to this, players on the EA forums and in our own comments are also complaining that the add-on lacks a qualifying round option.
Plus, there are widespread reports of crashes and freezes affecting the game. The FIFA Twitter account has aknowledged the issue and says that EA Sports are "investigating."
UEFA EURO 2012 launched earlier today on Xbox Live. It marks the first time that the tournament spin-off has been made available as a download instead of a standalone, disc-based game.
Unfortunately, it would seem that the reduced price, 1800 MSP, also comes with reduced content. And functionality.
