Description

FIFA Soccer 08 is another yearly update in the soccer franchise. The version for PS2 and PC uses the same graphics technology as in the years before while updating rosters and stats, adding new teams, new control options and new game modes.

As in other versions, there are 620 teams, from 30 national leagues, adding the Australian, Czech and Irish leagues. Returning game modes include single matches, tournaments, challenges, manager mode (with optional PS2-PSP connectivity) and online interactive leagues. The major new game mode is called Be A Pro - Co-op Season. Unlike the Be A Pro mode from the next-generation version where a single player is controlled via shoulder cam in one match only, the mode on PS2/PC lasts an entire season and features local co-op for up to four players with regular camera perspectives. Players can gain experience points for completing pre-set goals or being man of the match, which can be used to boost attributes.

Among the new control options are manual passes and crosses, with direction and strength determined by analog stick direction and length of the button press, respectively. On defense, the best defender for the current situation can be selected via the right analog stick. In one-on-one situations, it is now possible to switch control to the keeper directly, with manual saves and slide tackles possible.
