Summary: It's a fun game. There are features that EA took out way back in 04-05 that I still miss. The controls are still a bit "touchy" (i.e. who runs away from the ball when it's passed directly to you????). Glitches aside, I bought this for fun, and that's what I've gotten out of it.
Spend the extra $17 and get FIFA 09 you cheapskate!!

Summary: This game is good but for a measly $17 you can get FIFA 09 which is supposed to be much better. I bought this game last year and now bought 09. You can't go wrong with FIFA (except for FIFA 07 which was a total rush job).
Summary: Luis Mejia - One of the ultimate franchises in football soccer once again gives us the most complete and most interactive branch of gamming. As for anyone meandering about how "average" the franchise has proven to be over the years, this can't repair the most amazing and most complete variety of...
Summary: I bought this game a few months ago and have probably played about 20-30 matches so far against the computer. It's quite fun and the animations are great (and really exciting when you play a friend), but I have had a lot of trouble with its learning curve as far as playing the computer goes.
Summary: Fifa 08 is a marked improvement over fifa 07,the addition of skill moves and a ridiculous numer of leagues has made this year's installment a must have for any soccer fan.The graphics and player movement are spot on,the stadiums are surreal.
Summary: I originally purchased Pro Evolution 2008 (Australian version), however, was a bit dissapointed with the graphics and very dissapointed with the online play. In fact Pro Evo 2008 is so jerky it is almost unplayable online. So after a few weeks I also purchased FIFA 2008.
Summary: Bought this game on 11/1, been playing it as much as possible. Great improvement over FIFA 2007 (XBOX 360) which was very disappointing. The game is very deep, lots of strategy, lots of options, lots of leagues. The game is definitely slowed down, but it's now more realistic. Physics are awesome.
Summary: The game is overall what i expected and more, it has many more features then fifa 06 and 07, also the game play is quite different, it is a little more realistic and slower game play as well. HDTV looks great and the colors are excellent.
