Excerpt: I remember 1979 when Rocky II came out. I was on a family vacation in Florida and I came out of the movie theatre after seeing it, full of excitement and bravado, like I could take on the world!!
Excerpt: Another year means another FIFA, and we have to struggle to once again come up with yet another fresh opening paragraph for this review, and one that avoids mentioning the age old debate of Pro Evo vs. FIFA (well apart from this once) and overused football clichés such as “EA scores a goal”.
Excerpt: Another year, another FIFA. Well, actually no. FIFA 08 will in fact be the fifth EA Sports soccer game on the Xbox 360 in the last two years! If you’re wondering that’s FIFA RTWC 2006, World Cup 2006, FIFA 07, UEFA CL 06/07 and FIFA 08.

Conclusion: Overall...it is a tough one...this is not a game that people just forgot about causing high TAs...it is a tough and grinding game to complete, especially the online segment. So far, all the onlines are still available.minus one The Real World achievement in FIFA 08 worth 27 points As the Lead...
