Summary: The players are slow to react to the controller and pretty much only run up, down, left right, and in 45 degree diagnol lines. There is a second of lost time between pressing the button to shoot, and the actual shots that the players take. I had FIFA 2005 on the Playstation 2, and it was WORLDS better than this piece of junk.
Summary: FIFA 2008 PC is no different from FIFA 2007, except for the updated players and teams for the 2008 season. The gameplay is actually slightly worse in regards to switching players. The difference in difficulty from amateur to semi-pro is like going from highschool to the MLS!!! Not quite on target...There are some exciting new players to choose from like Lulinha and Bojan, but don't bother buying this if you already have FIFA 2007...I would wait till 2009 is out.
Summary: I play FIFA since 1994 and could not stop buying the yearly edition, so, I am not the best to write a review since I never tried other soccer games but also, not willing to do it. I simply love FIFA and since I grew up no much time to meet my folks, the ONLINE is my new tool to get at least 3 matches a day... AI engine is not that bad, but could be better. Players movements could seem a little ridged and shoudl improve.
Summary: Not as good even as 2007. Hard to figure out how to just have a career (i.e. play for Liverpool consecutive years). Can't figure out how to upgrade players (It adds XP experience points but doesn't let me spend them). Too many horns in the crowd, and everyone knows that horns at sporting events are obnoxious.
Summary: The music sucks. Great improvement in goalkeeping. Scoring was still a little too easy in '07, but this one makes scoring harder, and therefore, the game is more competitive. Commentary is questionable at times such as "Great save!" when the goalkeeper hasn't even seen the ball! Graphics have taken a plunge. The players all look blurry during gameplay. Unlike '07, you can not tell exactly WHO the player is during gameplay.
Summary: I don't know what the other guys were talking about FIFA 07 being better, 08 improves on a lot of stuff. The gameplay is NOT the same, defending is much better in this game. Computer aren't that dumb any more and the goalies are a lot better too. The new player switching and goal keeper controls also help out when you learn how to use them. There's also quick free kicks, you can actually push up your goal keepers on corners when you're down a goal.
Summary: Do not buy this game. It's basically the same game as FIFA 07 with a few very minor changes. Most of the things that I hated about FIFA 07 are still there, except that, to make sure that the game is even less fun, it is now harder to score from outside the penalty area. Otherwise, it's really the same game, they're obviously reusing the same engine. As you play it you realize that it feels exactly the same way.
