Customer Reviews of FIFA '08 Soccer
Gameplay takes a bit of getting used to... (Xbox) Fifa 08 uses a different approach for gamers to keep the ball and get close to the opposing goal. With the inclusion of tricks theres far more to learn and it does add to the ongoing immersion of the game. Being an attempt at a simulation... the fast arcade style of (PS2) F-07 isn't going to be there. Goals are hard(er) to get similar to (XB3) WE8 and very unlike (PS2) F-07... but overall its very rewarding when you do get one! (PS2) F-07 is about exciting goals. (XB3) F-08 is about great team work. Burn (XB3) F-07, its that bad! (XB3). Overall, I highly recommend the PS3 version since the control seems a little less clumsy, plus the online modes are all free! (I have both 360 and PS3 versions). Regardless of your choice the lounge area is the source of many exciting games... the online games even more! Online team games have had me laugh hysterically and pout for a whole day. Warning, the lounge area seems the source of many bugs... but still worth many games! The achievement system allows you to purchase items for an avatar which is shown online at: http://www.easportsworld.com There you can store your top four goals and view other award winning goals! On the other side of the coin I'd say that this game still has room for improvement, but theres far more in this one than the others preceding it!
