    Rated 4 out of 5 by from EURO 08 (SUMMER OF THE AZZURRI) This game is great. I have been playing Fifa World Cup 06 for a bit now and by far, this game is no contest. The players move much more realistic than WC 06. This is similar to Fifa 08 but I like this game better. But one problem in this game is the score display. I have to pause the game and go to the menu to check the time because it is so small. The graphics are very good. Nothing bad to say about that. EA did do a great job on making this game. Unfortunately, I do not have Xbox Live so I cannot comment on the game play there. You do have to get used to the game play because I play on professional and me being Italy, I lost to Faroe Island 3-1. Yes, pretty bad, but need to get used to game play before judging this game. I do recommend to buy this game if you do like soccer.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good game, a great tournament Euro UEFA 2008 is a good game. Authentic stadiums, anthems, sound atmosphere and graphics are all there. The game plays similar to FIFA 08 with the added graphics of sideline coach reactions. Amateur mode is challenging so you are not always able to beat the opposition so easily. They could have made the score display alittle bigger and the ability to select players more fluent but these points are minor in nature. As I play this game I wonder if EA rushed abit on the sound and intro video clips. I seem to get a short high pitched static sound come on just before the beggining intro scene. comes on. This may be my own technical glitch ..hmmm, dont' know. Also players, scenes seem to "pop up" from nowhere. Oh Well, still..a fun game to play.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from NOTHING LIKE THE DEMO OR FIFA 08 Alright, listen. I downloaded the demo from xbox live thinking that this game was going to be great. I bought it on sunday and I think this game is okay, but nothing like how soccer is played. First of all, the game is way too fast paced, its all one-touch ball. And if you try to slow it down, no matter what (at least on xbox live) the play is going to break up. There are few times where you can work the ball around, usually its just based on through-balls that end up on bad defending by the other team. which get s me to my next point. Secondly, the defensive controls, the auto switching does not help you on arriving through-balls. The player will go towards the ball, the ball will pass him, and go to the striker, who can easily make it. I've seen it happen against me, and on me. Thirdly, the offender definetly has the advantage. The are so many of those touches that when you're taking the ball down the line that usually get too far ahead that the defender can just steal that dont happen. So what i'm saying, is on fifa 08 you can take the ball down the line with speed burst and the defender wont take it from you. On fifa you have to maintain ball control. On a more positive note, there are hardly any ties that result in pk's. There are usually at least 3-5 goals scored per game. If you're looking for a game that will provide some over the summer i'd get it. but dont expect it to be anything like fifa 08.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST SOCCER GAME EVER!!! I just got this game a couple days ago and I love it. The graphics are incane! And the cool thing about this game is that when the Euro actually starts, it automatically updates with game scores and players performance or injuries. The last soccer game I had was FIFA world cup 06, and Euro crushes it! Also in this game, you can play against others on xbox live and its amazing! And the cool thing when you first play it, a tutorial on the game shows what you can do, all the cool features and how you can choose a team, customize it and more.I would definitly recommend this game to all soccer players and video gamers who like soccer. I never tryed FIFA 08 but my friend who came over said that this game totally beats it. O and if you do buy this game you should have extra controllers to play with your friends because the game play is great!
