Summary: I know everyone does either FIFA or Pro Evolution series, but this game (based on FIFA) has the best gameplay of them all. Both former have many interesting features like club leagues, international teams (not just Europe), more playing modes and lots of people playing online; but if you want plain and simple football with some delicious gameplay this is the game for you.
Summary: I have 2002 and 2006 fifa world, played fifa 2008 and bought this UEFA Euro 2008 from amazon like 5 months ago and let me tell this is the best soccer game i ever had and played. I would recommend it to everyone who likes good soccer games and also good graphics.
Summary: Best next gen football/soccer game ive ever played. Better than FIfa 08 and PES 2008 - fluid game play, faster than Fifa 08 and better use of the through ball. the commentary, graphics and all the small details EA pay attention to are amazing in this game. I was a PES fan but this game is way better than Pro Evo.
Summary: This one is a lot of fun. I love Fifa 2008 and PES 2008, but this one has better graphics than Fifa 2008 and a slicker menu system. I think the difficulty settings are not as good as PES 2008 though and the crowd graphics in PES are much better than the EA games, with the drawback being the licensed clubs being limited in PES.
Summary: Brilliant game! I would never personally have gone out and bought this. I prefer to play with teams rather than countries. Also with England not in the competition it did not tempt me into buying it. How ever my mate bought it and we have been playing it. Usually once a week 3 friends and I will met up at one of our houses and play some playstation for a couple of hours.
Summary: I wasn't going to buy this game as England weren't in the European Championships but after the demo was added to Playstation Store and I was very impressed. The game was great and much improved from FIFA 08. The game follows the European Championships and has many modes from the tournament to Be A Captain (Be A Pro but captain your country). This provides lots of choice and lots of gameplay options. You won't ever get bored.
Excerpt: Better than FIFA, has by far the best commentry on any fottie game I have played. Croud noise was brilliant - with personal chants per country. 'England till I die'!' Great for the banter. Be a pro is also great as is CYC.

Summary: Every time a major football championship comes around it is pretty much obligatory a game comes out at the same time, many of these *cough* world cup 2002 *cough*, have been massively disappointing which left me unsure about this game. However how wrong I was to worry, what a brilliant game!
Pros: Great looking game that provides brilliant fun for football fans
Cons: Despite EA's huge budget they didn't pay Holland for name rights
