Critical Reception: Electronic Arts' FIFA Soccer 08

Over at Gamasutra, this week's edition of the regular Critical Reception column examines online reaction to FIFA Soccer 08, the newest entry in EA's long-running soccer series that critics claim is "a football game that's going to stick with you all season."

Soccer sim fans have placed EA's FIFA series and Konami's Winning Eleven: Pro Evolution Soccer in close proximity in recent years, with each side earning its share of devoted players. Many critics felt that last year's FIFA Soccer 07 lagged behind its competition, however, earning the title an average review score of 73 out of 100. This year's offering, FIFA Soccer 08, appears to fare a bit better, boasting a Metacritic-averaged rating of 83 out of 100.

I know this thing came out yesterday, but is it in store yet????????????????

It is in store right now. I'm gonna pick it up after school. I'm a big soccer fan and that's why of all the games such as Halo, Killzon, MGS4 this game is the one that I'm looking forward to play this game.

I also played the PES 07 demo and I didn't like it that much (I said I didn't like it not it sucks so...) I'm gonna stick to the Fifa frachise.

Im getting FIFA since its out first but I will also get PES once it comes out. I love football that much. Both games seem like they will be fun as hell.
