Check out 8 new screens for Fifa 08.
Fifa`s always had the looks, and this years looks to be upping the ante again, BUT......if the gameplay doesn`t improve drastically over the past few incarnations then it will be another no-no for me. PES 2008 for me on instinct alone.
Fifa can look as pretty as it wants but thats simply not enough, pro evo always destroys fifa in gameplay, and i dont think its going to change anytime soon. EA seems to think that adding a new gimmicky feature every year is more important than actually improving the basic gameplay.
The last PES on the 360 sucked. I found no improvement on PES 5 which had more options, PES is a great game but the last effort was cack. lets hope the dev's put more effort in this time. The 360 version of Fifa 07 which had a completely different engine to the ps2 version made major leaps to closing the gap with PES. This time round both games are gonna be tight - a bonus for all gamers
THE ONLY THING FIFA HAS GOING GOR IT COMPARED TO PES 2008 IS THE RELEASE DATE, I'M SURE MANY SOCCER FANS FOR PS3 HAVE BEEN WAITING A LONG TIME FOR A SOCCER GAME TO PLAY ON THEIR PS3'S, AND ONE THAT ISN'T PS2, I WILL BE NUYING THIS GAME BECAUSE I ALWAYS ENJOYED THEM ON MY PS2. I WAS THINKING ABOUT GETTING WINNING ELEVEN BUT TRUTH IS IT WAS BECAUSE I HAVE NEVER PLAYED IT YET I HAVE HEARD FROM MANY OTHERS THAT IT IS WAY BETTER THAN FIFA. I JUST HATE TO WAIT UNTIL 2008 TO GET IT. I'M SURE I WILL HAVE LOTS OF FUN WITH FIFA. WHEN PES08 COMES OUT I'LL GIVE IT A TRY.
Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think the majority of the game will be played using camera angles such as those exhibited in these screenshots. They definitely look nice of course, but will we only see action this close during replays?
I definitely love fifa for its manager mode because it has sooooo many teams and players, and now it has "be a pro" mode which I think will be very fun. "Be a Pro" definitely livened up the MLB 07 for me, so I think it will do the same in Fifa.
Looks like EA will be giving this game a big push in America to capatalise on 'Beckham Fever' - I hope it really does take off over the pond - for once I should be able to beat the yanks online!!!!
