Reviews Summary
Be A Pro mode is really top-notch, probably the best game in the FIFA series.
Spot-on control, great atmosphere, more features than ever
The AI can actually defend, it is a shame the AI has so much trouble scoring
Pretty much the same as "FIFA 07" but tighter and more feature-packed than ever.
The FIFA series has come as close as ever to bringing down the Winning Eleven 9 vale of supremacy

Hardcore fans seem to have a lot of complaints about this series, but I enjoyed Fifa in the past, specifically Fifa 2004 for the Xbox.

FUNNYMAN said...

I wonder if there will be an Xbox version of this.

Caleb said...

See it says "soccer" right there on the cover. Not "football".

Crazy Europeons.

And it must be an exciting game with everyone on the cover screaming their heads off.

...BTW on your Ebay ads say that Parasite Eve 2 has just gone up to $10.50 with like 16 bids. Is that game rare? 'Cause I just got a second copy for like $2.

I definitely see what you mean Caleb... Calling football a game that is actually played with your ..uh.. feet, instead of calling it sahker... Tsk, tsk... ;)

Anyway... experience same highs without the salary you said Elderly? Hmmm... How about the fame then?

FUNNYMAN said...

The hell with the fame. How about the women?

gnome said...

Everything ok Mr. Elderly?

Ross said...

Caleb, Parasite Eve II is not very rare and isn't worth all that much...

And where oh where is Elderly? Maybe he's living up to his name (as in getting really old) and taking one long nap... please oh please don't be cranky when you get up.

I can't get over the looks on the players faces on the box.

Our colonial cousins just don't get it do they Gnome? LOL! :)

But seriously, 2007 seems to be my best year for football games having played SSW 97 on the Saturn SSW2000 (Euro Edition) on the DC and also Fifa 07 on the DS and recently bought Sensible Soccer 2006 and Pro Evo 4 for the PS2 for the princely sum of £2.99 it looks like my football gaming is on the up...

Having said that, the only match I've been to this season is MUFC vs. Coventry in the Carling Cup at Old Trafford. They got beat 3-0! Happy days!!!

Azio said...

Yes but where is sensible soccer 2008! :<

The Elderly said...

Sorry guys for such a long absence, things should be back to normal in a few days.... thanks for watering the plants oh and it seems sensible soccer is arriving at the end of November but who would bet against 2008,... oh jesus look at the cobwebs...!!!

gnome said...

The Elderly said...

..? you ate the entire spider?... what ever happened too share and share alike?.... right! well im making a cup of tea entirely for myself...

(heads of to the kitchen in a huff....)

gnome said...

Oh, come on... don't be so grumpy... here, got you a leprechaun's toe...

The Elderly said...
