PostSubject: Fifa Soccer 08 ( By God )   Thu May 01, 2008 7:22 am

Score = 7.6 / 10

Positive
- Looks good
- Awesome soundtracks
- Plays a faster-paced soccer match
- Tons of teams and stadium
- Opponents AI is better than it used to be
- The new be-a-pro mode is pretty good

Negative
- Most options are unchanged from the previous Fifa games
- The commentor is really wrong
- Some glitches here and there

Fifa 08 on the PC is mostly similiar to the PS2 version rather than the PS3 and 360. In fact, Fifa 08 has some minor changes over the previous games. Most options have remained the same but new modes like the be-a-pro and more involving manager mode.



This series still has alot of teams. More leagues have been added and even more stadium. After a long time, you can play under the snow. Soundtrack is still pretty good, graphics are a bit less but better than they used to be in Fifa 07. As said before, unlike the PS3 and 360 version, Fifa 08 on the PC and PS2 play faster than the other versions. The PS3 and 360 versions don't have the new be-a-pro. The be-a-pro lets you control one player rather than the whole team. You can do complete seasons with a player. In this mode, in matches you can call for the ball whenever you want. If you play the be-a-pro co-op season, there are certain conditions you have to do in order to improve your player. The be-a-pro is up to 4 players, and the one with most levels will be the captain of the team. At the beginning of the season you will start with 60 overall and by doing conditions the game asks you to do, you can use the point you gain to level up your player. There isn't a game over if you don't get the conditions done. You won't only get the points for it. There are 2 conditions. One of them is for you only. According to your position, you willbe givin. If you're a striker you will be normally asked to score, or call for balls. If you're a defender, mostly the game will ask you not to let goals in. The other condition is for all the team. One of the most popular is to take more shots than your opponent. In the be-a-pro you control a player only, as i said. Normally you team is pretty dumb, to be sincerely. Opponents score even if there are 4 players on one. This mode can be really tough if you are up against a great team. At the beginning you get to choose the team to wanna be with and them create up to 4 player. There is more, but i don't wanna ruin it for you.

If you own Fifa 07, it dosen't seem worth it. Only the be-a-pro mode is totally new. The create-a-player and create-a-club modes are completely the same as they were in the past games. Also the manager mode is the same. The new thing is that you can make training, by using the calander but nothing special really. Game settings haven't changed alot except for one thing, you can change the opponents keeper level, ex: world class and the team as amaetur. This is a pretty good idea. Challanges mode are almost the same, even fan shop. One of Fifa 08's biggest flaws is the commentary. When you shoot out, one of them (not Andy Gray) says that the keeper made a save, even if he didn't even touch the ball. Other thing he says that the keeper made a wonderful save from a powerful shoot, even if he dosen't touch it and the shoot was weak. In Oval style stadium you might encounter a big glitche that almost cover the screen, i'm not sure that there are others but i'm sure in this. This might not always happen but i happened to me and i'm sure the disk has nothing to do with it. Another one, maybe to notable but there is a player in Fiorentina, Italy, whose name is Andrei Murgu. He is suppose to be Adrain Mutu. The nationality is good and even the dates. And he really dosen't look like Mutu. Even players don't really look so good. In real world they either look totally different or totally unrecongnizable.

Fifa 08 is does very little to improve over the last Fifa games. If the be-a-pro mode interests you, it a good experience but Fifa is not really recommanded to those who own Fifa 07, mostly to same option modes and wrong commentary. But Fifa 08 still looks good and sound superb. But with more teams and stadium, a faster-paced soccer match, makes Fifa 08 great to buy, for fans that is.
