Too difficult to score goals

by Estevado on 11/28/2007

The gameplay and movements are smooth and very realistic. However, I found that 07 and 06 are still more fun to play than this game. They've made it too difficult in my opinion to score goals. As someone who has played hundreds of hours with previous editions, I expected the learning curve to be a little steeper. Due to frustration, I traded the game back for 07 but I may have given up too early. Read More

Be a Pro - Offline Training: Think and react like a real professional soccer player. Play the entire game as a fixed player while getting real time feedback and analysis on the fly. A unique camera angle keeps both player and action in focus, zooming in when you're on attack.
Clinical Finishing: A true next-generation ball-striking engine calculates shot success by combining an almost infinite number of different contexts, including ball spin, pressure from defenders, player attributes, and even air pressure to recreate the drama and unpredictable nature of shooting.
Complete Authenticity: Dramatically more authentic and exhilarating with 620 licensed teams, 30 official leagues, and more than 15,000 players.
Intelligent Soccer: Now featuring AI with a 35-point decision engine which enables players to process 1,000 potential options and reactions every second in real time -- more than 60,000 options every minute -- via a dynamic 'Threat Map' system to capture the excitement and realism of soccer.
Interactive Leagues: Represent your club online against your rivals throughout the season in the F.A. Premier League, Bundesliga, French League or Mexican 1st Division. Features weekly in-game pod casts by the development team.
Manual Controls Dictate the play with new manual controls for through-passing and crossing. Now use the right-stick to quickly switch defenders and choose exactly who you want defending, when you want him.
Online Leagues: Create and organize your own multiplayer Friends Leagues and tournaments with all the tools in-game.
Pro Skills: A new, organic building-block system enables you to combine tricks and skill moves together to recreate signature moves from the real-world superstars or define your own style of play. Animations can be interrupted at any time to transition into a new move, just like real life.
Real World Soccer News: Receive up-to-the-minute soccer news and podcasts from media outlets.
Tournament Mode: Play 60 tournaments, including 35 officially licensed ones, or create one of your own.
Video Upload: Capture your best goals and highlights in-game and bring them online for the world to see. Upload your highlights to the FIFA 08 website to create the ultimate highlight reel to prove the stories you are telling your friends are all true. Because without the footage, it's fiction.
