  1. Representing this summer's European tourney, UEFA impresses in many ways: shimmering presentation, engaging game modes, and tweaks to problems that hurt "FIFA 08". [June 2008, p.78]
  2. Euro 2008 is yet another superb soccer game from EA Sports. It picks up where FIFA 08 left off, and adds improvements to the overall experience.
  3. The player likenesses are fantastic and the overall presentation is wonderful.
  4. The normal match modes and multiplayer are a step up from Fifa 08, with player movement and ball control even more realistic than what has come before.
  5. UEFA Euro 2008 plays a better game of football than anything else on the market, but only just.
  6. 79
    Although there is nothing wrong with the gameplay (which is rock-solid), it's as good as FIFA 2008 - if not ever so slightly more fined tuned. My only concern is why any football fan would want a version that is not as complete as other versions already on the market.

    Does 50 teams for the price of 570 sound like a good deal to you? If it doesn't, then you don't need UEFA Euro 2008. If it does, you also don't need UEFA Euro 2008, you need professional help. [Issue#165, p.90]
