FIFA Soccer 08
The Usual FIFA, With a Little Flair
FIFA 08 is a great game. Like most other recent sports games, its adapted to have the features of a carerr mode, an online mode, a play-now mode, and a few other general ways to play. But like most of the other 2008 sports games, FIFA does not support a feature where you only play as one player. As seen earliest in Madden, the feature allows you to create a player and life his life both socially and through the sport. It's been very popular and was one of the main reasons I bought the game. Of course I knew when I was buying it that it did not support that feature, but I still bought it and have a great time with it. I wish FIFA had adapted to the 'Be a Pro Mode' in a full career long feauture as opposed to only being able to use it during a game rather than a season. Yet other than this, FIFA 08 is still a good game and deserves respect, but if you are thinking of buying it now with FIFA 09 and FIFA 2010 out, I suggest buying 09 or 2010 rather than 08.
Definitely will hold you over till World Cup 2010
Fifa 08 has many positives but a few negatives that must be addressed. Firstly, the positives, graphics and sound are excellent with this title, as expected. I have a 480i standard definitely TV and it is still gorgeous. Crowd chants are spot on with their international counterparts but the commentary is rather bland. If you can get past the commentary and momentary repetition, then on these aspects, it is a good game. The menu and interface system is ok. It is the same as 07 with Ronaldo playing one on one with a no-name keeper. It is a good practice, but in the live game modes, you rarely get a one-on-one situation. Also, menus do not immediately come up on this interface, which can be frustrating with pick-up-and-play players. Controls are on par with the other Fifa titles. Ball control and tackling are still lacking and it is very easy to get carded or lose the ball on a challenge. Getting the ball back can be frustrating as well. Shooting is still extremely difficult with little ability to aim shots without facing the area you wish to shoot, including PKs. Overall, good, challenging game with a few kinks to work out.
I have never really been a FIFA fan to begin with, but everyone was hiping this game up to be the best soccer game ever, and I was, once again, very disappointed. I downloaded the demo and I can't tell the difference between 07 and 08. If the demo is anything like the actual game, than I would strongly recommend not buying it unless you just wanna waste money.
Ok i've played this demo, and all i gotta say is that EA has to go back and do their homework. It seems EA puts more effort into the Madden series then anyother sports game. Graphics are great but the controls suck...EA please go back and do your homework...Its a shame seeing as im one of the biggest fifa fanatics but after playing this demo i'm sadly dissappointed
The best game fifa 08
Its a very good game especially if you want to see David Beckham in the La Galaxy and all the new players in diffrent teams another thing thats good about this game is that you have to pass or else there is no way to get passed the defenders because soccer is a passing game. I think you should buy this game if you're a big soccer fan.
fifa 08 is gonna own
fifa 08 is gonna own. you can actually do moves, over 600 teams, and if EA sports uses the same engine they did for UEFA Champions League 06-07, it will the best soccer game on the market, and probably the best ever made
Does anyone know if the creators of fifa 08 for xbox 360 have changed the manager mode at all? Last year you were only allowed to play up to five seasons with a team and i was just wondering if they modified that in the new game. If anyone could give me some info on this i would appreciate it. Thanks.
Ok....lets see..most of the leauges are back....the carribeans team and most of the southamrerican ones are still out...the gameplay as been extremly redone and its more fun to even lose..the new be-a-pro brings a new spin to things,, but its sucky that its not a career mode thing...the career mode features i think stills need have a little life to it,,its jus the same scrol out menu..now gameplay...its BETTER THAN 07 by miles...player speed has improve from previous ones were they just slowed down..we will now have trick to embarass our foes off and online...all in all this games is a must play not have if your new to fifa...but its a keeper alla(Buffon,Cezh, Van DER SAR,Casilla,Sanchez,)if your a fan of the franchise...
Great Football Game!!!
Yet me tell u guys one thing his game is gonna be the best soccer game.I have played the demo and it is great.I love the fact how they have all the leagues like MLS.I cant wait to play the be a pro mode.I love the graphics.They have improved alot.I love the sound of the players.I didnt get any sound of the announcers.I hope they get rid of the last years announcers.I hope they get the UEFA anoouncers for the UEFA Champion League game.I hated last years announcers in fifa 07.I wish the game was a little faster though.I love the new tricks and everything about it.Good job Microsoft.GO BARCELONA!!!!!
IT WILL NOT BE A GREAT GAME
sports games have become really popular. Apparently EA sports does well, but not good enough. Madden is the best football game, but NBA LIVE and baseball games are not even close. But there are only 2 brands of soccer games. Winning eleven and FIFA. WInning is the more enjoyable, but it still isnt that fun. So fifa 08 will just be an ordinary game. 2k sports should make a soccer game. It would sell all over the world
