Summary: I had very high expectations for this game. I remember that first fifa world cup that came out in 2002 and it was an excellent game. Therefore I assumed I would pass on FIFA 08 and get the EURO cup version. At first I thought it was a pretty good game (all FIFA games are good in their own respect), however shortly after the EURO cup people stopped playing the game; making the online play seemingly non-existent.
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!
UEFA Euro 2008 (PS3): Can you rewrite the history books?
27 March 2009
Summary: 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.
Pros: Great game mode, where you create yourself and lift the trophy.
