Description

UEFA Euro 2008 is yet another football game from EA Sports. This time it's basically FIFA 08 modified to let the player experience this summer's European Championship.

Euro 2008 lets you control any European national football team in many different ways. For example you can decide to create your own character and play as good as possible on your position on the field in order to become good enough to captain your team. This is basically a slightly modified version of the "be a pro"-mode from FIFA 08.

You can also try different challenges and tournament modes in order to unlock extras or just test your abilities. You can play through the full championship experience, including the qualifying stages, or you can skip ahead to the group stages. You can also play a very extensive challenge mode where you try to make you nation the best in European football by clearing different challenges against all the other European teams.

As with FIFA 08 the PC and console versions are quite different. In fact, they are based on completely different game engines. While the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3-versions boasts state of the art graphics and a new and improved control system, the PC-version still basically looks and functions like the 2006-version.

Trivia

Wrong Northern Ireland Anthem

When the championship is won the national anthem of the winning country is played. The development studio made a mistake with Northern Ireland. It is part of the UK and thus has God Save the Queen as a national anthem. Instead the anthem of the Republic of Ireland is played: Amhrán na bhFiann or The Soldier's Song. Knowing there are opposing forces who want to reunite Ireland or have it remain a part of the UK despite the newly-found peace, this is a very unfortunate error.

Online Servers

Electronic Arts closed the game's online servers for the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions on 8th February 2011.
