Summary: I am not a big "video soccer" player, but thought this might be fun as I typically do like the sports games. However, this one was a little too advanced for someone not that familiar with the controls. There does not appear to be any "training" mode to help a novice learn the controls and even playing on the easiest level using a top notch team I was unable to do anything to make the game fun and make me want to play it more.
Summary: This game is smooth, lots of teams, realistic passing and moves, but one major flaw, shooting. Every time you take a full power shot, it always goes over the goal. You just have to take 1/2 power controlled shots, which is not hard to do, but makes the game much less fun. Other than that, great game.
Summary: Let me preface this review by saying I've owned every FIFA or EA soccer game since 06. This is definitely the best of the lot. The passing and dribbling is smoother and I only wish I could put this gameplay engine into my FIFA 08 game. The players don't react as slowly as in FIFA and the defence is more tougher. The improved passing accuracy makes up for the defence being harder. You can penetrate the D by threading in lobbed through balls on the button.
Summary: Change the course of history and rverse the ignominy of England's 3-2 defeat to Croatia which kicked the "hree-lions" team out of the qualifying rounds in the recent Euro 2008.. Yes, you can be England's saviour when you play the latest soccer computer game, UEFA Euro 2008. That's because there's a "Story Of Qualifying" mode where you can relieve the highs and lows of the qualifying rounds.
Summary: This game is great. I have been playing Fifa World Cup 06 for a bit now and by far, this game is no contest. The players move much more realistic than WC 06. This is similar to Fifa 08 but I like this game better. But one problem in this game is the score display. I have to pause the game and go to the menu to check the time because it is so small. The graphics are very good. Nothing bad to say about that. EA did do a great job on making this game.
Summary: Euro UEFA 2008 is a good game. Authentic stadiums, anthems, sound atmosphere and graphics are all there. The game plays similar to FIFA 08 with the added graphics of sideline coach reactions. Amateur mode is challenging so you are not always able to beat the opposition so easily. They could have made the score display alittle bigger and the ability to select players more fluent but these points are minor in nature.
Summary: Alright, listen. I downloaded the demo from xbox live thinking that this game was going to be great. I bought it on sunday and I think this game is okay, but nothing like how soccer is played. First of all, the game is way too fast paced, its all one-touch ball. And if you try to slow it down, no matter what (at least on xbox live) the play is going to break up.
