    The footie's great, and that's good enough for me. [Christmas 2007, p.66]

    The tackling has been improved, and while the whole thing can feel a bit spongy, it still plays a decent game of football. [Christmas 2007, p.76]

    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.
  4. 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.

    EA are improving things, slowly but surely. However, the problem is that they are also degenerating in certain areas too, in their efforts to balance gameplay issues. And there is a deeper problem too - earlier versions of FIFA are actually more enjoyable!
  6. While the next gen consoles got a new facelift the PC version seems to have been an afterthought.

    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]

    The first serious soccer sim from EA sports. It's bloody hard on the higher levels, though.

    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 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. Expand

    After 2 minutes of playing it I thought I had re-purchased FIFA 07 (seriously). EA obviously do not care enough about the PC platform to After 2 minutes of playing it I thought I had re-purchased FIFA 07 (seriously). EA obviously do not care enough about the PC platform to release a quality football game for it. Instead they have released a game that is almost identical to 06/07 versions. Heck, Im looking at generic player models that were used 4 years ago! EA should be ashamed of themselves for releasing the game at all. Expand

    worst game ever 07 was so much better the defenders suck and they changed the switch button, the computer can just run down the field thenworst game ever 07 was so much better the defenders suck and they changed the switch button, the computer can just run down the field then your AI guy switches and misses a tackle and they walk into the goal, i hate this game, they should have just released a patch for 07 with the updated transfers and uniforms, worst fifa ever for the pc, great on ps3 or 360.
