Good game, but one bad feature...

Whit, Amazon
17 July 2011
  • Summary: I like this game but I really wanted this game for online feature. And I tried and tried to go online with EA, but since it is 2011 and this game is from 2008 I looked up the EA online information on why I couldn't go online, and it said that once games get to their point of certain years old (hence the game is 3 years old), EA closes down their online modes permenantly. Meaning you can't play online ever again.

Never feel as though you have full control.

  • Summary: I was really looking forward to FIFA for the PS3, however, I have to say that I am extremely disappointed. You wont enjoy passing the ball to your player and watching him stand there waiting for the ball to arrive to him and your opponant just coming along and intersecpting the ball. Especially on long passes where your player is on the enivitable track. If you can get past these issues you will enjoy the game, but it will continue to fustrate you in competitive games.

  • Conclusion: Great sound, great intro's, all the real players (unlike Pro Evo), reasonable (if a little generic) graphics but it just doesn't feel like footy. A decent enough game but if you like playing football the way it's supposed to be, go for Pro Evo (even with it's problems).

  • Summary: The game has all the teams, players, places, tactics, movements...and at the end, when you are playing, you will find that all that plus will make your game difficult to develop. You dont use all the tactics stuff and in my experience I dont see a true difference when I play the different formations that you can select. What I have sometimes is a crazy goalkeeper going to the middle of the groung without control...

Very Frustrating

Ben Shea, Amazon
28 October 2007
  • Summary: i bought a PS3 because i thought FIFA 08 was going to be the FIFA game I had been waiting for all these years (I have bought everyone since 97). How wrong was I? Although the pro view is great in theory it is very unpractical. especially when you cross the ball. You have to hope for the best to get on the end of the ball as the camera panning is slower than molasses. I also agree with everyone else's negative reviews. A very annoying game.

Needs HDTV

  • Summary: I have only one thing to say. If you don't have a HDTV, do not buy this. The letters on the screen are too small and blurred, you can hardly read it.

  • Summary: Fifa 08 leave a lot to be desire, even though its a relatively a fun game, it again falls short of at least what i been waiting since i bought an xbox360 and 07 was disapointin and ps3 hoping it will be better for 08.the last good fifa was prob ps2 06. But anyways fifa 08 def improves a lil on the defensive side, you wont have to desperatly press every button tryin to get the last defender anymore though its harder to actually take the ball awya from the defender which...

miss this one out and head straight to Fifa 09

  • Excerpt: 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.

No trophy but a good cup run

mcqdave, Play.com
21 September 2008
  • Conclusion: Fifa will always be compared to PES after PES 5 & 6 set the standard. Since then FIFA have closed the gap, especially on the new gen systems. And this maybe true here. But this doesn't do enough to take the lead. There are allot of new nice things ie one player career and the online leagues. But the same game problems exist. The ball is attached to the players and not controlled by them like PES. The game at times plays like old EA ice hockey games not like footy.
