They just cant get it right,
This review is from: FIFA 08 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Every year I buy the latest Fifa incarnation and often think why. why, why! All the areas you hope to have improvement just get missed and the other areas where they introduce something new just dont work at all. I have waited a good 3 weeks to write this review and give my honest thoughts about the game. I simply cant get to grips with fifa 08, so many things just dont work with this game. The tricks just dont work in this game as an example and the button delay between you pressing and the player carrying out your commands are worse than they have ever been in all of the fifa games by far! Im playing in semi pro and on the old games i would win 10 - 0 on this I barely scrape 1 -0 wins and quite often end games 0-0. Scoring is almost impossible now as before in the old titles it was too easy but they have balance wrong, the play is too slow also. To be honest Im bored with this already whereas the old titles would entertain me for months and months. I would try Pro evo because that does have better gameplay but he fact most of the teams are unlicensed winds me up!
Avoid and hope they come up with something better next year although I truly believe EA pays no attention to reviews what so ever.
