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.
