Product Description

FIFA 08

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. 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another chapter in the FIFA/PES love affair 9 Oct 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
For years now it has been accepted that the state of play is that ProEvolution Soccer is the only game that is worth caring about. Look past the iffy licencing, dodgy names, limited leagues and cups and you have a superb footballing engine at the crux of it all.

Something made me think though, should I just accept what is said to be true. I can remember the old isometric days with players highlighted by circles and stars, screaming in 35 yard wondershots, but surely EA must pay attention to what the market demands.

I would say that the gap between FIFA and PES as far as a basic footballing engine is at its smallest yet. Indeed I may even go so far as to say I prefer it. The basic functionality of the game remains the same, pass, shoot, lob, throughball (albeit with pass and shoot buttons differing between the two franchises) but the tactical side of the game feels so much more advanced than last years PES6. Players signalling off the ball runs, overly boysterous shunts drawing free kicks, a player goes down in the box and play is waved on, players with skill performing the odd piece of flair without it looking unnatural or forced into the game to appear flashy. Also the way that players seem to wane, and lose confidence if things go against them as the clock ticks on. Spot on.

Add to this the superb presentation, animations of players appropriately berating each other for defensive slip ups, fluid ball control and shooting motions. Then there is the commentry. This is like walking into a lush wonderland when compared to the near silence of PES6. Also the content of it is on the whole accurate as to what happens on screen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Presentation. Flawed Gameplay. 31 Mar 2008
By T.Davey
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I think my title explains FIFA 08 well. I have played FIFA since 2002 and it always has been presented well. The large amount of official teams, kits, stadiums never fails to impress, and is always an advantage over Pro Evo. Add to that a pretty good soundtrack and commentary and FIFA 08 is looking good. All of this presenation is in the PSP version, and the menus are slick, however it is the on pitch gameplay that really matters, and this is where the PSP version suffers.

Having played FIFA for years on Professional or World Class difficulty I thought it would be the same for the PSP. Not so. This game is much harder!!! To the point where it is much less fun watching your opponent keep the ball and give you no space to build an attack. Even getting towards the goal to have a shot is a struggle- and only in Semi Pro mode!

FIFA 08's graphics are not too great, and that's expected for a portable game. The textures are grainy and the players themselves do not have the detail of console versions, but its still fairly good. The controls are the same as any PS2 FIFA, and you can assign movement to analog or directional buttons which is good, but I think when playing itself the controls are too sensitive.

There are some extras on the PSP version like mini games and a trivia quiz and these are pretty good, although after a few tries you'll want to head back to the pitch.

So FIFA 08 for the PSP is a good scaled down version of the console game, with all the official licenses available, but I think the gameplay is way too hard which hurts the experience. I don't think FIFA or Pro Evo has made a fantastic portable version, so I would say it's just down to personal choice.

2.0 out of 5 stars Aaaah not incredible. Too short. 24 May 2009
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I have written many reviews on amazon and this the first one I am negative about. Considering some other football games I think that the graphics could be greatly improved. I do not understand why the game is so easy. I am not normally an ace on game but this was too easy. I had it sown up within a month and for me that is bad. It faltered a few times and I have to say the lack of international tournaments was utterly atrocious. Normally fifa brings out good games but this was poor. If I were you I wouldn't buy this game unless you are a football worshipper. If I try hard I can concentrate on the game for half an hour before being bored out of my head with this game. It's absolutely lacking a spark of brilliance.

5.0 out of 5 stars James's review 31 Aug 2008
A Kid's Review
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I thought fifa 08 was a great game. The psp had great graphics and that is very good for a football game.It was a great game because it has lots of modes and things to do! I the challenge mode there are lots of challenges to go through and best of all you can do lots of things with the points you earn for completing a challenge. In manager mode you get lots of games and get to change players and formation and lots more. You can change the difficulty the camera view bookings injeries and offside. I think this was a good use of my time

The ONLY footie game to own for the diehard fan. Proevo lost it's appeal to me when I bought 07, & 08 improves the whole experience. Now adding pre-season friendles as well. Read more

Firstly, FIFA does have some great features - competitions, player names, rivalries.

However, it's got some massive glitches and gaps. Read more
