Euro 2008 geht im Vergleich zu FIFA 08 wieder einen großen Schritt nach vorne und kann durch zahlreiche Verbesserungen und neue Features punkten. Bessere Spielbarkeit und eine ausgewogene KI sorgen fĂŒr weniger Frustmomente und mehr Spielspaß. Besonders die Modi „Be A Pro“ und „MannschaftskapitĂ€n“ können uns begeistern und machen vor allem zu viert richtig Spaß. FĂŒr Punktabzug sorgen leider der geringe Lizenzumfang und der dennoch hohe Preis. Wer damit leben kann bekommt das spielerisch und technisch beste Fußballspiel auf der Xbox 360. Die unter euch, die „Be A Pro“ schon bei FIFA 08 interessant fanden, sollten sich Euro 2008 auf jeden Fall zulegen.

UEFA EURO 2008 has impressed me a lot and showed me that sports games on consoles can be, and are very fun indeed. The level of atmosphere is second to none and if there's no football on TV then this is surely the next best thing, bar going outside and kicking a ball around the park. I have to recommend this game to all and sundry as it's the most tamest of games when compared to all the violence seen in other games. It has it all, and even though England aren't in this year's tournament, at least gamers can change history in the comfort of their own homes. For those of you with FIFA 08, this is well worth a look simply because of the refreshing new modes and roster of teams/players available.

More important than any of this, however, is the fact that playing the game is fun defined. While Pro Evolution has managed to slowly botch its own previously stellar system with each release, EA’s FIFA has been making steady progress over the last few years, culminating in this climax. Let’s just hope EA doesn’t rest of its laurels and takes its newfound creative leadership seriously. It’s a dangerous thing to say, but, here’s to FIFA 09.

Some gamers will probably argue that “FIFA 08.5” isn’t worth a premium price tag. Normally, we would agree and recommend a game like UEFA EURO 2008 only for those with deep pockets and/or strong allegiances to European soccer. In this case, however, UEFA EURO 2008 is enough of an upgrade in enough aspects for us to give it a full-price blessing. Although less grandiose and not any better looking than FIFA 08, UEFA EURO 2008 is improved in nearly every other facet of the game, which says a lot about EACA’s commitment to dominating the console football market. So, yes, the future does indeed looks bright for FIFA 09, but with UEFA EURO 2008 currently on the shelves, the future also happens to be right now.

Respekt EA. Trotz durchaus vorhandener Skepsis gegenĂŒber UEFA Euro 2008 ist letztlich festzuhalten, dass es sich um ein sehr gutes Fußballspiel handelt, welches diesmal nicht nur einen weiteren kleinen Schritt in die Richtung macht, sondern endlich wegweisend erscheint. Wenngleich das Spiel immer noch weit von seinem vollen Potenzial entfernt ist, hat EA das Ziel erreicht, die Erwartungen bezĂŒglich FIFA 2009 zu steigern. Ob hinsichtlich des Umfangs der Vollpreis gerechtfertigt ist, bleibt dahingestellt. UnabhĂ€ngig davon ist der Titel aber jedem Fußball-Fan zu empfehlen, der den ungeliebten Italienern die Halbfinal-Pleite unserer Nationalelf schon jetzt zurĂŒckzahlen will.

Soccer fans will undoubtedly fall in love with UEFA Euro 2008 for its gameplay and online components, but it certainly could stand to have more game modes and features. The truth is that most of the game modes are just more of the same, and it's been that way for a very long time for fĂștbol titles. As it is, UEFA Euro 2008 would be a great game to pick up for fans that don't currently have a soccer title, but may not be worth it if it will be your second or third game of the genre.

For those that aren’t online fanatics I would recommend purchasing the game, as it has enough in it to warrant a play through until the release of FIFA 09. For those that are buying for mainly the sole purpose of playing online and doing the whole battle of the nations thing, just rent it because you will be sorely disappointed when the tournament is over and at $50 dollars, it is kind of a rip-off. Regardless, EA made another great football game and for that, you have to commend them. I hope that this means FIFA 09 is going to be the game everyone has always wanted. Except for the online blip, EA might finally be taking back the footy videogame crown.

UEFA Euro 2008 is a great game and offers a insight into just how good FIFA 2009 could be. If the game has any problems it is that it is too expensive for what it is, after all it lacks the club teams and the other extras which make FIFA such a great package for value. If you want to take your team all the way to UEFA Euro 2008 then this could be for you, however if you all ready own FIFA 2008 then we suggest practicing on that until the next version comes along.

Ob FIFA 08 oder PES 08 die bessere Fußballsimulation ist, darĂŒber streiten wir uns auch in der Redaktion regelmĂ€ĂŸig. Fakt ist auf jeden Fall, dass EASports mit FIFA 08 das wohl beste FIFA seit ĂŒber zehn Jahren hingelegt hat. Davon profitiert jetzt natĂŒrlich auch der EM-Ableger. Das Gameplay auf dem Rasen spielt sich klasse und sieht endlich wie richtiger Fußball aus, technisch ist das Spiel auf den NextGen-Konsolen ohnehin eine Pracht. Der Hauptkritikpunkt an Euro 2008 ist wie zu erwarten der eher geringe Umfang, schließlich fehlen euch alle Clubmannschaften und langfristig motivierende Spielmodi. Da die EM-AtmosphĂ€re glĂ€nzend eingefangen wurde, können wir damit aber wenigstens bis zum Ende des Turniers leben. Auch wenn mir persönlich spielerisch PES 08 immer noch deutlich besser gefĂ€llt, kommen Fans von zĂŒnftigen Onlinematches um Euro 2008 kaum herum, auch der Kampf der Nationen verspricht bis Ende Juni sehr viel Spannung.

When all is said and done, UEFA EURO 2008 is an excellent soccer title that is definitely worth the $50 price tag for true fans of the sport. If you are looking for a more general soccer title, I would suggest picking up a used copy of FIFA 08 or waiting for 09 to make an appearance. However, if money is not an object, go ahead and pick up EURO 2008 and follow the tournament in style!

While Captain Your Country will keep you busy, the online aspect of this game is equally impressive. I love the 16-team knockout cup, and that your off- and online efforts can be uploaded for the game's Battle of the Nations component (where all of the points you earn in the game will go to support whatever country you pick when you first boot up the game). That's a nice addition to keep you plugging away until Battle of the Nations ends on June 30. Most soccer nuts awaiting this summer's Euro-only tourney in Switzerland and Austria will buy this one anyway, but for those on the fence, I recommend giving this one a shot. Particularly at the slightly reduced $49.99 price tag.

UEFA Euro 2008 is a good game, but with only a ‘fraction’ of FIFA 08. You’ve got the added modes, but the £40 RRP may put gamers off as it’s only European teams and FIFA 08 is cheaper with more teams; you’ll be missing out on Captain Your Country though. UEFA Euro 2008 is well worth a purchase to those of you who are willing to splash the cash and want to lead England to glory. The only problem I had with the game was an invisble player running down the right wing. Roll on FIFA 09.

UEFA Euro 2008 - ist dieses Spiel von EA ein Kauf wert oder handelt es abermals um ein simples Update von seinem VorgĂ€ngertitel? Diese Frage ist eigentlich schwer zu beantworten, da der Titel sowohl positive als auch negative Aspekte aufweist. Optisch haben die Entwickler einen neuen Referenztitel auf der Xbox 360 geschaffen. Selten erlebte ich so ĂŒberaus realistische Wettereffekte. Der Sound in dem Spiel kann sich hören lassen, da dieser zu einer hohen AtmosphĂ€re beitrĂ€gt. Der negativste Aspekt in UEFA Euro 2008 ist auf alle FĂ€lle das Gameplay und die unrealistische Steuerung. Überzeugen kann auch der Onlinemodus, der fĂŒr einen hohen Spaßfaktor sorgt.

UEFA EURO 2008 ist ein Wechselbad der GefĂŒhle: Auf der einen Seite stehen die Verbesserungen im Spielablauf und die aufpolierte Grafik, auf der anderen Seite ist da der geringe Umfang und die Tatsache, dass die Spieler-Kuh fĂŒr ein Lizenz gemolken wird, die nur halbgar ist. Da fĂŒrchte ich mich jetzt schon vor dem kommenden FIFA-Ableger, der dann nur die aktualisierten Kader und minimale Verbesserungen mitbringt, statt einen gewaltigen Fortschritt hinzulegen. Wie soll das auch geschehen, denn nach der EM bleibt bis zum Start der Fußball-Saison gar nicht mehr so viel Zeit. Was bleibt, ist gut, aber nur ein PausenfĂŒller fĂŒr Menschen, die genug Geld haben: UEFA EURO 2008 ist ein Vollpreis-Spiel, bietet dafĂŒr aber nur die Europameisterschaft und die europĂ€ischen Nationen, einen erweiterten „Be-A-Pro“-Modus, der aufgrund der begrenzten Dauer des Turnier wie die Lizenz nur halbgar ist.

Zwar gibt es nach wie vor einige MĂ€ngel, aber man kann inzwischen schon sagen, dass es sich um das ĂŒbliche Gemecker bei einem Sporttitel handelt, Raum fĂŒr Verbesserungen ist also nach wie vor da, dennoch bin ich von UEFA Euro 2008 positiv ĂŒberrascht und kann trotz Fehlern wie einem Happel Stadion, welches nicht auf EM-Stand nachmodelliert wurde, positiv ĂŒber den Titel resĂŒmieren. Zweitens wĂ€re da der geniale KapitĂ€nsmodus und dass ein Fußballspiel auch gleichzeitig ein Mehrspielerhit ist, muss hier wohl nicht extra erwĂ€hnt werden. Kaufempfehlung gibt es also fĂŒr den Fußballfanatiker, der entweder einen Sammeltrieb pflegt, also alle EA-Sports Titel hortet, oder jenen, der schon lĂ€ngere Zeit kein aktuelles Fifa mehr gespielt hat und einfach das Aktuellste haben möchte, um zu wissen, was spielerisch 2008 schon alles möglich ist.

We’ve played FIFA 2009 and can say that it has benefited from some of the strides made here in UEFA 2008. The animation system is being expanded all the time and is getting closer and closer to providing a true-to-life feeling of fluidity. It might offer up less content (in teams and stadiums) than its older brother, FIFA, but what’s here is all solid, especially the Captain Your Country mode. Those searching for a great tune up to this fall’s FIFA 2009 should look no further than the impressive package of UEFA Euro 2008.

Mind you, when all's said and done, Electronic Arts has managed to fire yet another positive shot in the football sim battle. And although UEFA Euro 2008 will probably fail to sway the Pro Evolution Soccer addicts out there, this instalment remains a fantastic sign of things to come this summer. If FIFA can take even more strides in the right direction, there's a distinct possibility that Electronic Arts will win the war in the end.

Despite its smaller scope, Euro 2008 replicates the drama of a major international cup competition very well.

So, if money's no object, or you simply missed out on FIFA 08, by all means pick up Euro 2008. With the added bonus of Captain Your Country, and a host of welcome tweaks and additions, it's a Russian linesman away from being given 9/10, and only the inevitable absence of club teams and other FIFA-level content get in the way. Overall it's a great game now, but it should be an even better one when FIFA 09 comes out.

Recommending UEFA Euro 2008 is hard if you’ve already got FIFA 2008 or you’re severely strapped for cash. At its core, it is a cash in, and when you look at what’s been taken out it is a stripped down version of last year’s effort. But when it plays a game of football so streamlined, so natural - so real, it’s hard to not feel justified in handing over more hard earned money to a company who seem to be learning from past mistakes. The British nations not playing their part in the soap opera that is Euro 2008 this June, will leave many feeling hollow and bitter towards the tournament - and it may have ruined my plans for the coming months. But UEFA Euro 2008 is just the prescription fans and gamers needed to get over their summer blues.

All in all, UEFA Euro 2008 is a very good soccer game. The play is fantastic, and there's a lot of fun to be had, but even with the improvements made from FIFA 08, it feels underfeatured and overpriced when you hold the two titles side by side. If you already own FIFA 08 there's no real reason to pick up UEFA 2008, but if you don't, this might be a good place to jump in to get a taste of what FIFA 09 will likely offer. If you really need to get in some time with European soccer, UEFA Euro 2008 is about as good as it gets.

Putting aside the grumbles with price and the frustrating licensing issue, FIFA Euro 2008 is a slightly better game of football than FIFA 08, which bodes well for the next release - but that is a problem in itself. The question has to be asked, should I wait until the inevitable update at the end of the year? If it includes the same crisp, responsive gameplay and incorporates Captain Your Country (or Captain Your Club as it would be) then my answer would be hold onto you money and wait until the new football season kicks off. However, if you can't wait that long then I would thoroughly recommend UEFA Euro 2008 - and once you're through with it, you can always trade it in to snap up FIFA 09 for a song, or indeed, a chant.

The core gameplay has been tweaked enough to make FIFA 08 feel slightly dated, but chances are FIFA 09 will improve on this even further. If you support a team that actually made it into the tournament then the hype over this summer's footie is likely to win you over, but for everyone else it might, just be too much of an unpleasant reminder.

EURO 2008 is undoubtedly a step forward for the FIFA series, bringing it tantalizingly close to dethroning the once all conquering PES. Play zips along with a responsiveness previously unseen in the series, helping it come closer than any other title to fully representing the beauty of the game of football – and all this wrapped up with some trademark EA presentation. As a companion piece to the tournament it’s unsurpassed, but as a halfway point between FIFA 08 and FIFA 09, and at full price, it's only the hardcore that need apply.

Over all UEFA Euro 2008 is a good title, however the differences between this and FIFA 08 isn't enough to warrant owning both and the rather limited scope of the game, only having European international teams, means that perhaps waiting for FIFA 09 is maybe the best bet. If you are desperate for a good football game, you couldn't find a better game on the market, that's for sure, however a desire to play the game is not likely to last past the summer, certainly not past the probable release of FIFA 09.

UEFA Euro 2008 is all in all a slick well presented football (soccer) package. Well presented and with beautiful graphics it is a pleasure to look at. The high learning curve is frustrating at times, considering the lack of a tutorial or any real explanation of the different controls and what they do or how to pull them off. This means it's very much a trial and error experience, however the fast paced gameplay gives you little time to really have a play around with the ball. This is a game that will appeal most to veterans of previous EA soccer titles who will find the controls easier to manage. The inclusion of an in-depth online mode also means you can take on other people around the world which should keep UEFA Euro 2008 challenging for much longer. Overall a good effort which has built on strengths. EA are definitely going in the right direction, but they’re not quite there yet.

It's really unfortunate that for all of the community and competitiveness that's in Euro 2008, it's all expiring nearly as fast as it shows up. Battle of the Nations is a phenomenal way to stoke the nationalistic fire of the competition in gamers around the world, but it's shutting down the day after the tournament. It would've been a little better were it not for the fact that North America got the game a month after everyone else, giving it six weeks of shelf life here. That's a huge strike against an otherwise solid title. Otherwise, if you're hankering to create alternate history and let the host nations hoist the cup, look no further than Euro 2008.

Vendu pourtant au prix fort, UEFA Euro 2008 risque donc de poser bien des dilemmes. Il reste en tout cas le plus sĂ»r moyen de voir les Bleus arriver en finale...

Good Game (5.5 out of 10)

There's a stigma attached to EA Sports games after multiple re-releases of franchise fodder. But the last FIFA was pretty GOOD, and FIFA 09 is going to have a much better manual passing system, as well as online play where everyone in the game is a real person except for the goalie, which is unprecedented.. UEFA is not a BAD game by any means, but I’m gunna have to rate it as below average because in this case the alternatives, FIFA and Pro Evo, just offer you more. It’s 5 and a half from me.

Good Game (5.5 out of 10)

Even though it’s made by the people behind FIFA, I’ve gotta say as a game, it feels like a follower rather than a leader. I’m giving it 5 and a half

It may sound strange that I’ve only discussed one mode in this review, but having played the other modes and having seen that they’re absolutely nothing that FIFA hasn’t done before, “Captain Your Country” was theonly thing that kept me coming back to play. In fact, it was the only section of the game that I spent anything more than an hour on. Draw your own conclusions about what that says for the rest of it.
