Lets's FIFA 08

Current Gen - Overview

Get closer to the action than ever before by mastering the skills required to play like a real professional football player in FIFA 08.

Step into the boots of a professional player through a new mode called “Be A Pro: Co-op Season” that challenges you to master the same disciplines as a real professional football player - from positioning and tackling to reading the field and passing. Step onto the field with your created player to play an entire game as that footballer, and develop him into an elite player over the course of the season. Never before have you been able to approach the game this way, improving your abilities one skill at a time just as if you were a pro.  Play with up to three friends playing all fixed to their players on your favorite club, complete individual challenges to develop your player attributes and win glory for the squad, while competing with your friends to develop the best player by season’s end.

From the moment you step on the pitch, FIFA 08 challenges you to think and react like a real football player by giving you complete control over all of the action. New manual controls enable you to dictate the play with control over through-passing and crossing. Control the goalkeeper in one-on-one situations to deny the striker yourself. Take ultimate control over your defenders with new manual controls that enable you to use the right-stick to quickly switch defenders and choose exactly who you want to control when defending. Plus, now it is more strategic to break down the opposition than ever before with new defensive and positioning logic that ensures players are in the right place at the right time, constantly considering all threats and opportunities.

Intelligently manage your club by preparing for each specific opponent using new custom formations. Design your own unique strategy to create the perfect formation and tactics. Assign roles and move players to the exact position in relation to teammates to undermine the opposition.

FIFA 08 on the PlayStation 2® introduces Online Football Clubs that enable you to form your own group of like-minded football fans to take on all challengers online. Gain status among the online community by helping your Football Club climb the rankings. Win more points based on the importance of the match when playing Interactive Leagues or challenging other Football Clubs to a grudge-match tournament.

Next Gen - Overview

The FIFA 08 next-gen gameplay engine, built to maximise the power of the XBOX 360™ and the PLAYSTATION®3, delivers animations and ball control that is so responsive you feel like you are actually on the pitch. Players are now aware of their surroundings, reacting authentically to threats and opportunities to make intelligent decisions.

For the first time ever, fans playing FIFA 08 will face the pressure to improve their game that real-world players endure every day.
