There's nothing quite like the beautiful game, and FIFA 08 gives you the whole pie rather than just a slice. Visuals from FIFA 08 are fairly impressive, with a lot of character expressions and some great animation work, leaving the whole game have a humming feel about it, a feeling that it all locks into itself rather snuggly. This year, Martin Tyler and Andy Gray take up the commentary box, and although most of what they say is true, some parts make no sense at all. For example, they say that a defender blocks the ball when the goalkeeper parries it away. Small things, but noticable things nonetheless. While on the topic of sound, FIFA brings back another track of great songs which seem to fit the mood perfectly both before and after the match. The online mode is back, and although sometimes it can take a while to get into an online game mode, there seem to be little to no hitches providing you have a decent connection. This year, however, there is a be a pro mode, in which you play as 1 player in a team of other people mixed with computer players. This is a great mode with some great gameplay, letting players opt to be in defence, midfield or attack and finding their best position. Overall, the online mode, manager mode and playing against friends can provide hours of fun, with hundreds of different teams, cups and tournaments to work your way through. The computer AI is very good, adapting to the way you play and making decisions accordingly. The gameplay itself is fun, addictive gameplay which will make even people who don't play football want to join in the fun.Overall, FIFA 08 is a good game with brilliant gameplay.
