FIFA 08 (PC): Graphical Updates Ensures Fifa 2009 Has its Place in Hall of ...
16 May 2009
Summary: When I bought the game and started it up for the first time, I was incredibly impressed by the graphical overhaul that EA Sports have counjured up for the lastest installment...sweat drips off the players, the veins show off in the light and they seem to live and breathe with an enormous amount of realism. As in Pro Evolution 2009, the players' expressions change with great frequency and add to the general spectacle...very big thumbs up for this!
Pros: Full Licensing, huge variety, large database of players and team, graphical upgrades
Cons: It isn't PES 2009, Ball physics a bit lacking
Excerpt: "...first time i played a FIFA game,all ways i use to play racing games one day my friend gave me FIFA 08.Then i stated playing this game is very user friendly very smooth and game play is similar to real time. Graphics: If we come to the graphics the is very good ,player texture is good ,there are may stadiums and different types of grounds and we also have provision to play at day time or at overcast or night.I all ways play keeping night because ...
Excerpt: "...if u use to play FIFA for years then you will understand that EA made a mess with the configuration by seperating the association of "SWITCH PLAYER" and "PASS" from one another (They use to be on the same keys.) But I think the reason for my negative review is that this game came out a year ago. I'm now playing FIFA 09 and really happy that I bought it cuz its improved about 70% things in FIFA .So I think u should skip this one and go for FIFA 09. But ...
Pros: There is new commentries in FIFA 08 and I enjoyed it .
Summary: FIFA 08 is a great game to play. Highly Detailed Players and Ground too. Good Game Options. But the System Requirements is too high, and the Graphics Cards Models can be a little complicated. All Graphic Card Models are not supported, only some NVIDIA and Radeon Models are supported by this game. This game is one of the best from EA Sports and in the whole FIFA Series. This game is for everyone no matter what's your age.
Pros: Superb Graphics, Great Gameplay, Highly Detailed Players
Cons: System Requirements are too high and complicated
Summary: One of the great debates amongst game players of the football genre is are you a FIFA or Pro Evolution Soccer fan? Personally i've always preferred Pro Evolution, but i've always ended up at some point buying FIFA to see how "the rival is developing" FIFA 08 is certainly getting there, but its still not quite there and for me its still not yet quite smoking the cigar. There is a slight improvement on gameplay to the 07 version, but its very insignificant.
Pros: Visually great, Be A Pro Mode, more licensing of teams.
Cons: Still not quite the true gameplay to match the cosmetics of the game.
Excerpt: "I'm playing Fifa since 1998 and played fifa 98,02,02,04,05,06,07 and now 08. All of them I enjoyed Fifa 07 mostly. It was really a great game.. tactics, playing style, graphics all of them were fully improved! and also the game play was awesome. But when I installed fifa 08, I was excited thinking how might be the game.. Unfortunately I was disappointed that there not much difference between fifa 07 & 08.... Fifa 07 was much attractive then fifa 06. ...
Conclusion: This new Fifa is not bad. The problem that I can see people having with it is that the controls are different, and the 'classic' style of controls cannot be accessed. For online it's gonna be harder if people cannot get used to the new controls.
