2008 was always going to be interesting with regards to the instalments of the World's 2 premier football videogame series. This would be the first year both franchises, EA Sports' FIFA and Konami's Pro Evolution Soccer, would be gunning mainly for the next-gen Xbox 360 and PS3 market, following 2 very different sorts of disappointment with the prior instalments (FIFA 07 for the 360 was ambitious, but unfinished, and PES6 was a lazy port of the PS2 game) this would be where the real judging began. First on the field was EA's game, and thankfully they have put out an altogether solid and enjoyable, if still not perfect, game. Building on the engine debuted in ... Read the complete review

All i can say is brilliant, alot pf people had said that couple of the fifa series have not been up to scratch, but 08 is just fantastic, commentary is better than ever and i love the uncanny crowd chants, whether its better the the latest pro evolution is a different matter, yet still a fantastic game and the new be a pro feature is a quirky added bonus to the game. Best of the series to ... Read the complete review

For the last 4 or 5 years, it has become crystal clear to almost every football simulation game fan that FIFA football games were simply a crying little girls in the shadow of the fast flowing and realistic spectacle of Pro evolution soccer. However, with the newsest installment of the FIFA franchise, it seems FIFA has pulled itself out of the gutter and into the footballing limelight. With new skills, graphics and a vast array of pitches packed into a reasonably priced package, it seems like the FIFA series may have taken the ball from Pro evolution soccre and placed it ever so slyly in the top corner of the net. Watch out Konomi, Fifa is ... Read the complete review

I had always been a bigger fan of fifa until Fifa 06 came out i was shocked at the laziness and inaccuracy of the game, so following this i was a pro man. However Fifa 08 has restored all of my faith in the game. Unlike previous fifa games, fifa 08 it completely accurate even down to intricate features of lesser known players. And i have been very impressed at the scale of responsability that you take up when you choose a team in manager mode. From player contracts to stadium size Fifa has it all. The close ups of players are impressive although i think that the graphics could be as impressive during regular gameplay during a ... Read the complete review

How quickly these games lose their value. I remember purchasing this game on the first day of sale for £29.99, it is now available new for £1.49 on Amazon. It really is difficult understanding how these games lose their value so quickly until you realise that people like me are silly enough to wait for the next years version of the game and then buy it on day of release for full price. What is it: It was released in 2008 as the latest Xbox 360 version of the most complete football game in the world. With over 30 world leagues and 15,000 real players its as close as you could get to playing real football. Well it was, now theres a newer version ... Read the complete review
