FIFA 08 (PS3)

FIFA 08 (PS3)
Advantages: Plenty of new features, great online
Disadvantages: Obvious in early stages of development
Fifa 08, an installment in the fifa family that you can afford to miss out on. Although it is the game that pushed it up and away from rivals PES it was certaintly no match for the following game fifa '09 which was released the following year.
It was the game that changed everything for fifa giving plenty of new modes and features and boasting its first real atempt to join the other big names in the online community.
Of course all the same old features are there, looking for a quick mess about with some mates use the same old quickplay, looking to follow, manage and play your favourite team to greatness this is also possible in the season box. But this was the first game where you could use the feature "Be A Pro" to follow one player and hone your football skills with him. It also really took of in the online section allowing you to play anyone in the world at a match of foootball.
But it was completly outshadowed by what followed Fifa '09 did not try bringing anymore new features to the game but instead worked on improving the ones bought in by Fifa '08 it has stunning visuals and a far superior camera angle that improves the quality of the fifa family so if looking to buy a fifa game get fifa 09 onwards rather than this prototype.
Summary: miss this one out and head straight to Fifa 09
