UEFA Euro 2008
Good game, but...
I had very high expectations for this game. I remember that first fifa world cup that came out in 2002 and it was an excellent game. Therefore I assumed I would pass on FIFA 08 and get the EURO cup version. At first I thought it was a pretty good game (all FIFA games are good in their own respect), however shortly after the EURO cup people stopped playing the game; making the online play seemingly non-existent. When I played FIFA 08 at my friends house I realized that I had made a terrible mistake. Not only did EURO cup have about 1/5 the amount of teams to choose from it was just obvious that EA sports had spent all of their time developing FIFA 08 and realized, "oh yeah, we can make more money if we make a EURO Cup versio," which most likely took them a week to develop. Nevertheless, EURO Cup is a decent game, but I would suggest another version over this. Other versions allow you to shoot with a player during the load screen, but not this version. Just a microcosm of how this game hails in comparison to other FIFA's. As a side note: If you are like me and decided to buy this game hoping that it would have the Netherlands national team playable do not waste your time. Firstly, one must note that Netherlands are playable in all FIFA versions nowadays. However, EA Sports does not own the rights to team Netherlands so all of the players have fake names which completely butchers the experience (I think Pro Evolution owns the rights)
This sounds great i cant wait for it to come out. They have added weather which is just brilliant, thats the one thing missing from Fifa08. I wish it was coming out sooner. I will be the first one to buy it.. The English wont be at the real one so it wll be good to change history. Fifa 2006 world cup on Ps2 was a fantastic game so this being on the Ps3 it will be awsome.
