Summary: If you want to play the UEFA 2008 tournament on PS3, you have to get this, it's fun but not much different gameplay than EA's FIFA 2009 (yes it's closer to 2009, not 2008) Some fun bonus material is included, like replaying parts of past big Euro cup games where you have to win in the dying minutes for example.
Summary: My favorite Fifa game was world cup 2006 and until this game came out I did not enjoy most other soccer games. Great game play, very reaisitic ball skills, etc. My only complaint is the difficulty levels. Mainly from Semi-Pro to Pro there is an extreme jump in difficulty. I literally just beat Sweden (playing as Spain) 16-0 on Semi-Pro and then in most matches will be lucky to tie against Sweden or any other decent teams in Pro. Overall good game though!
Summary: This is another title in the series from EA, I like the graphics and the controls are easy to use. There's a learning curve, but the more you play this title the more you want to go back and challenge it. the commentary lags the action and needs some tweaking. Close up graphics are better than competitors but can also still use some improvement.
Conclusion: Having put all the control options to manual, this plays a great flowing and dynamic game of football. A lot of variations in the types of goals you can score with build up play is a necessity, unlike fifa's of old. Obviously with the tournament having been and gone this game is probably past it's best, but a good sign for fifa 09 nonetheless!
Summary: Probably they still use the same Engine as in Fifa 2008 but it's easy to score goal with compare to FIFA 2008. I also observed some changes in free kick in which you can kick the ball in a curved fashion, without the ball being kicked over the wall (side curved). Changes were made in penalty as well, the way it looks. Unlike previous FIFA version, penalty looks side view and looks like an actual match.
A good football game, but no more than a stop until fifa was released.

Excerpt: With my country Scotland, not playing in another major football tournament, i was wondering if this game would be worth me buying. However with being a football game addict I knew i would buy it eventually and right enough i did. Brilliant decision by me. Graphics visually stunning, and very enjoyable with staidums looking amazing and players looking realistic with good strips.
