    A not bad FIFA game but still prefer PES 6 and waiting for PES 2008 in a couple of weeks. For FIFA fans only!

    If you have played fifa 2006, you couldn't get much with fifa 2007. This time, you get almost nothing. only better thing is AI, but it's not even close to be enough to please soccer gamers. all the bugs and the worst graphics in newer gaming world- are (still) there. this is the last fifa i'll buy before reading reviews, if not the last at all.

    I'm very, very disappointed. having played all the other fifa's i thought this one would be superior, sadly its not. First off the graphics are bad, like someone stated before how its 2007 yet they made the crowed in the game 2D. very sad, plus you'd think the characters faces would improve. 2nd thing is the controls, very slow.. and not 100% half the times, pass to top I'm very, very disappointed. having played all the other fifa's i thought this one would be superior, sadly its not.

    A improved game on its features. nice be a pro feature but it all comes down to the classic match 11v11. The player switching system is still cock up and i expect it to improve alot more better. buck up on it, if not it will hav a serious impact on the player in his game. disappointment but i look forward to the nxt pes. fifa...u have disappoint alot.

    It's sad really, this game is really no different than FIFA 2007, it's definitely not next gen ready. Doesn't even come close to the GFX of the new PES 2008. Very disappointing, but hey it's what I've grown to expect from EA.

    A humungous game built around 12,500 real-life players with more modes and teams and options than a stadium has face painters, FIFA 08 is a superior soccer experience despite its ho-hum facade.
  2. Even though it’s closer to real life football, FIFA 08 seems like it could’ve been just a large patch. The main issue with this version is that the developers showed that they could implement an even better graphics and physics system on the next gen consoles, but PC fans will have to wait to see it in action, at least until the next title in the series.
  3. It has to be that AI again. It just feels too rigid, too tediously functional to capture the sheer fluid exuberance of football. [Dec 2007, p.78]
