  1. It's back-to-back successful seasons for FIFA while the Be A Pro mode is really top-notch. [Nov 2007, p.77]
  2. Don't expect a revolution, or even an evolution, come to think of it, but this is solid stuff and truly excels in multiplayer. [Nov 2007, p.100]
  3. With the PS2 final whistle in sight, FIFA 08 brings it right back to the touch line.

    As the sun sets on the Playstation 2 and its historical run at tackling videogame sales records, the FIFA series has come as close as ever to bringing down the Winning Eleven 9 vale of supremacy.
  5. Pretty much the same as "FIFA 07" but tighter and more feature-packed than ever. A good effort. [Nov 2007, p.76]
  6. Probably the best game in the FIFA series. The AI can actually defend while the manual controls give the freedom to create scoring chances in many different ways. It is a shame the AI has so much trouble scoring. [Sept 2007]

    Spot-on control, great atmosphere, more features than ever and balanced gameplay should send this one to the back of any soccer fan's net.
  8. The Be A Pro mode alone was worth a play-through – the enhanced controls only sweeten the deal.
  9. FIFA 08 makes small tweaks to last year's game, adds some new controls, and introduces new gameplay modes such as Be-a-Pro.
  10. 80
    I’m willing to sacrifice aesthetics for a good kick-around any day.
  11. It’s not quite the genre defining game it could have been, but EA is definitely heading in the right direction.
  12. Considering the resources at EA's disposal, the practised excellence of their programmers and artists, and the experience of well over a decade of development, there should be more put into the game.

    The game is ok. The graphics are good for a 2008 game, overall it's a good purchase. If you like soccer games, this is a definitely a good one to try.

    FIFA games in PS 2 were disaster. I played them too much but, it was just like walking in the park to dribble past 7 guys on legendaryFIFA games in PS 2 were disaster. I played them too much but, it was just like walking in the park to dribble past 7 guys on legendary difficulty versus any team with any player. Then there were some broken players, scoring everything from an angle. Even when playing with your friends, I suggest PES. It has joke graphics, but its gameplay is much better.

    In PS3, FIFA over PES all day.
