Unlike Leeds United, in FIFA Soccer 08 you will actually be able to pull off skill moves on the pitch :) [Ed's note: Don't worry, Leeds fans, he's already declared his own love of Leeds ] We listened to everyone on the forums and we made it a priority this year. Our vision this year is to deliver a really next-gen experience and it's only through our new animation engine that we are able to blend from one move to the other to provide you with this 'building block' concept for creating your own skills moves. This year you have the ability to learn to execute any combination of skill moves, giving you an infinite number of potential moves to beat you defender. Aaron McHardy worked on this feature and will go into more detail on the next page.
