  1. A lovely game engine featuring independent player and ball physics. Card game campaign mode jazzes up offline play.
  2. Overall it is a good game and if you are a soccer lover and I know you are out there this is a game that will not disappoint you.
  3. UEFA Champions League will surprise most people with its creativity and innovation. It may not be up to par with the competition quite yet, but the card collecting and trading feature makes this a must try for all soccer fans.
  4. A deep and rewarding experience for players who are genuinely captivated by the title's unique approach and also have some interest in the UEFA itself, but a mediocre and oftentimes clunky game to those who fall below the category of aficionado.
  5. It feels a good deal more complete than you might initially expect. [Issue 18, p.82]
  6. While the Challenge mode is a nice addition and the Ultimate Team card game in pretty innovative to the genre, I’m not convinced enough has changed since the FIFA 07 release to justify the $59.99 price tag. For Champions League fans, it’s a no-brainer at any price.

    UEFA loses traction with the actual gameplay, which is filled with more issues than a magazine stand.

    This is as good a football game as I have ever played (and there have been a few!). The gameplay is quick and slick, and the passing works This is as good a football game as I have ever played (and there have been a few!). The gameplay is quick and slick, and the passing works (much improved over FIFA 07). The tackling is difficult but that justs adds to the challenge of a game series (FIFA/UEFA) that could often have been classed as too easy in the past. The trading cards system is tricky to get used to at first, but after that it is great fun to use and make a change from normal methods. The graphics as always are superb. I am really enjoying this game. Give it a look. Collapse

    Manages to combine next gen sound and graphics with gameplay that, while not bad, is a step back from FIFA 07 on the PS2. I can see where Manages to combine next gen sound and graphics with gameplay that, while not bad, is a step back from FIFA 07 on the PS2. I can see where this new game engine has promise, but I still feel like I'm playing a beta version rather than a finished product. The mediocre mechanics are in phenomenal contrast to the presentation, which is as polished as I've seen in a sports game (although the commentary can be a little repetitive). As for the trading card system, it's interesting, deep, and challenging, and something I look forward to being incorporated in future (and hopefully better playing) FIFA games. It's a tired refrain for soccer gamers, but it seems like if you want good gameplay, Winning Eleven is still the way to go. In a perfect world, EA's presentation team would combine with Konami's gameplay team to make the perfect soccer game. *sigh.* Bottom line: If you have FIFA 07 on the 360, you might want to rent this one before you buy.
