Amazon.co.uk Review

The greatest battle of the new football season is not between any real world club but between the virtual giants of FIFA and Pro Evolution Soccer. Konami’s game has always been the favourite but last year FIFA closed the gap to such a degree that the title race has never been closer. This year’s FIFA uses a completely new game engine, for the first time built specifically for the next gen consoles. But improved graphics and animation are only the half of it, with just as much focus going on the artificial intelligence thanks to the new "35 point decision engine". What this basically means is that every player on the pitch is fully aware of those around him and constantly thinking about tactics and position when not under your control.

Other changes include better modelled physics for taking a shot on goal, which take into account everything from air pressure to the angle of your foot. You’re also able to create your own special moves to replicate every possible trick from real life. There are also new game modes including Be A Pro which challenges you to play the role of a single player through a whole season or career. On top of this there are revamped online leagues to play a virtual season in the Premier League, Bundesliga, French League or Mexican 1st Division against real opponents. With 620 licensed teams, 30 offline leagues and 15,000 players as well FIFA might just have made enough new signings this year to put it over the top.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disapointed in EA Games.. 25 Mar 2008
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Well, I am a loyal fan of EA games and the fifa series and this game is a awful!! This game is litterly just 'FIFA 07' in every way, they have not even changed the layout.

I own a PS3 and I have a copy of FIFA 08 for that and its an amazing game, but to launch this game is a waste of space, the put all there time and effort into the next gen game and left this with 1 member of staff to do some pitafull 'upgrades' to make the game a year older! I can not begin with the flaws this thing has.

The skin and the menu styles are the same just a different colour, all they have done with the players is change some of the boots colours and updated the squads, I counted only two new real player models, the rest are the same as FIFA 07. The commentry is exactly the same, I think there are a few new phrases that were probably pre-recorded, so its all the same phrases from the previous game which is annoying. The gameplay is exactly the same, no new skills or styles of play, the manager mode is an exact replica with a couple of pitaful upgrades, even the manager icons are the same.

The gameplay is infact even worse and flawed than the previous game, FIFA 07 is actually better, in this game its so boring and hard to score, the difference in difficulty levels is pathetic, on semi pro you can win 5-0 but on professional its like legandry on FIFA 07, its flawed because its so easy to defend, the CPU is the most annoying thing in the world, they just run to the sidelines every time, one game the opposite team had 50 throw ins, no joke.

Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Grab a copy of FIFA 2007. Add the Irish, Czech and Australian leagues using one of the many patches available.

Hey presto. You have FIFA 2008.

There are mysteries abound with this game, and with EA's attitude towards it. Take for example the inclusion of the Eircom Premier League. I mean, why? Of all the leagues to choose, not the Argentinian or the Japanese, or even one of the stronger African leagues, but the Irish league?!? You must be kidding EA.

Gameplay is little different to FIFA 07 (once you find a way to score, you can do it against any team. If Accrington Stanley fall for it then so will Barcelona). Other features do not appear to have been updated, save for the revised team rosters.

FIFA was beginning to catch up with PES but unless this lethargy, this apathy, this gut-wrenching contempt for PC gamers leaves EA Sports immediately, the gap is going to grow once again.

But then PES has it's own problems - namely basing it's entire design on the console version meaning that editing players' names can only be done using a game pad.

Bring back Subbuteo, that's what I say.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just Fair 17 Mar 2008
By R. Mura
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I have been a PES aficionado for many many years now. Fed up by their rubbish online servers, I turned to the dark side and bought FIFA. It is not that bad but nothing compared to PES6 as far as simulation is concerned (although PES2008 sucks!!! See my other review).
The thing that kills it for me is, again, online. In particular, whereas PES was unbearable for lagging, FIFA is nervewrecking because of online quitters! If you quit a match before the end u don't lose points! That means, zillions of quitters who will exit the match before the end if they are losing. In PES, if you lost connection, you would lose points and the other person would gain them. In FIFA, there is no penalty for quitting and if you get quit on, you do not gain any points even if u were winning!!! I have complained a lot with FIFA but they so far have not found a way over this. For me this is a BIG BIG issue. Sure, there is less lagging, but there is much higher chance of actually finishing a match only if u r losing! I am sure that my real ranking is at least 100 points higher than it is. Very very bad!
Also, FIFA seems more like a kid game with very unrealistic movements (i.e. u can actually manage to shoot at goal even running away from it...)
However, I find the whole team movements more realistic than PES (6 of course)

1.0 out of 5 stars Not what i'd hoped 20 Nov 2007
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
This years Fifa is highly disappointing and i'll tell you why. During a match, the cpu team seems perfectly balanced almost to a point it's unfair. They tackle more efficiently,have a better formation and pass more effectively (even if your team is better rated than them). Your team however, likes to retreat too deep when not in possession of the ball (i regularly watched my entire squad retreat into their own half when not in possession)

The "co-op" mode isn't much better either. Your players squander possession and even the best of players deliver poor crosses consistantly. Passing is awful to watch (e.g. neville lobbing a ball to an unpressured carrick when he's only yards away! WHY?!) This game is buggy to the core so EA need to stop focus on all the flashy animations and focus on some real gameplay!

Now i admire both Fifa and PES but for this year, i would highly recommend PES. Yes, i admit PES 2008 is not perfect but at least i don't have to worry about my players crossing the ball into the stands at every opportunity and retreating towards my own goal line! PES 2008 provides smoother teamplay and you can actually keep possession of the ball for more than 5 seconds! Ditch this years effort from EA and go for PES, you'll save yourself alot of frustration.
