I saw the video review posted above and I can only conclude I'm experiencing weird game play again... the game you show is so much different from mine, it's shocking. The movement, the passing, the speed, it's all smooth in your game, not in mine. My players handle the ball as if they see one for the first time in their lives. Sprinting is just impossible, and not because pace is down.. the game just doesn't respond well.
EA still didn't manage to clear the problems which annoy so many people: http://fifaaddiction.com/fifa-issues/fifa-gameplay-issues/
Is it possible your demo didn't download properly? Try re-downloading, it might fix your issues.
