IGN (Oct 11, 2007)
As the sun sets on the Playstation 2 and its historical run at tackling videogame sales records, the FIFA series has come as close as ever to bringing down the Winning Eleven 9 vale of supremacy. It doesn’t quite bring the same exquisite blend of difficulty, authenticity, and fun, but it’s still a great game that is even slightly improved over ‘07’s stellar offering. Anyone who hasn’t played a FIFA game on the PS2 lately owes it to themselves to check this one out.

IGN UK (Sep 25, 2007)
Ultimately, the real victory is on the pitch, with a flowing brand of attacking football almost reminiscent of that other football game, Pro Evolution something. If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then Konami can consider themselves duly flattered. The real winners are PS2 owners though, able to cock a snook at the fancy graphics of more expensive consoles while enjoying a supremely playable game of association football. Sometimes, looks aren't everything.

Disponemos de una IA bastante rigurosa, y un estilo de juego que se aleja del fútbol arcade de anteriores versiones, una tendencia que cada vez se agudiza más en la serie, ante el éxito de PES. Tratar de convencer por igual a dos bandos tan irreconciliables como FIFA y PES resulta imposible, pero no debemos dejar de reconocer el esfuerzo anual por mejorar su simulador, frente a un mayor inmovilismo por parte de Konami. Personalmente creemos que nos encontramos ante la mejor versión de la serie en PlayStation 2, un título que requiere de bastante práctica para extraerle todo su jugo, pero que tanto por la apuesta multijugador local, como online, unida al número de competiciones y extras como el sencillo manager, nos tendrán ocupados durante meses. Indudablemente los poseedores de FIFA 07 no encontrarán un cambio radical, algo comprensible ante la cantidad de versiones aparecidas ya para PlayStation 2.

Despite the game's few drawbacks in game play, the overall experience, as previously mentioned, is positive. FIFA 08 has a lot of diversity of its game play and offers an addictive, easy to learn experience for soccer fanatics. So, select your favorite team, create a persona in your image (if you like), and lead them to victory.

GameZone (Oct 24, 2007)
FIFA 08 is an entertaining, upper-class sports game with tons of options, new control features, and a great pro mode. The game isn’t a must-buy for everyone, but it’s definitely worth playing.

Looks, as they say, aren't everything and FIFA 08 on the PS2 demonstrates this perfectly. Spot-on control, great atmosphere, more features than ever and balanced gameplay should send this one to the back of any soccer fan's net.

GameSpot (Oct 26, 2007)
The PS2 version of FIFA 08 doesn't feel as revolutionary as the PS3 version, and in fact the two games are now very different in terms of playing style. The PS2 version, with its faster, arcade-style gameplay, is an evolutionary update to the series. It plays well, feels incredibly polished, and offers a wealth of options and game modes to play around with. We love the new Be-a-Pro cooperative mode because it adds something new to the experience and is great to play with friends. FIFA 08 may offer nothing particularly new, but this year's game is so refined and fully featured, it's the definitive entry in the series so far.

Digital Spy (Sep 28, 2007)
FIFA 08 is almost like a different game on the PS2 when compared to other formats. It’s fast-flowing, fun and right up there – if not better – than Konami’s celebrated Pro Evo game. Although not as visually impressive as on the PS3 or Xbox 360, it still looks nice and – without doubt – is the most playable version of FIFA this year.

Computer Bild Spiele (Nov 07, 2007)
Durch weitere neue Modi wie „Be A Pro“ fördert der Hersteller den Langzeitspaß. Allerdings könnten sich die Computergegner- und -mitspieler realistischer verhalten. Die Steuerung erfordert Übung. Die Kontrollmöglichkeiten der Mitspieler sind stark eingeschränkt. Insgesamt ein „guter“ Kick auf grünem Rasen.

Die PS2-Fassung entspricht inhaltlich fast zu hundert Prozenz der PC-Variante - es fehlen die neue Ballphysik sowie der Körpereinsatz der großen Konsolen. Es gibt alle Online-Varianten sowie die neue Karriere "Be A Pro", die ihr auch kooperativ mit bis zu drei Freunden meistern könnt. In Sachen Spielmechanik sind ebenfalls die komplette Torwartsteuerung sowie die verschlimmbesserten Pässe in die Tiefe mit dabei. Ähnlich wie auf dem Rechner sorgt die manuelle Krafteinteilung dieser Bälle für mehr Irritation als Kontrolle - allerdings spielt sich der Kick auf der PS2 dennoch flüssiger. Was unter Windows wie ein Anachronismus und auf 360 bzw. PS3 wie eine Simulation wirkt, fühlt sich auf der PS2 arcadig und leicht an. Und es gibt noch einen Vorteil: Man merkt dem Spiel auf der alten Sonykiste im Gegensatz zum Windows-Rechner einfach nicht an, dass es technisch veraltet ist. Wer Lust auf Fußball hat und weder 360 noch PS3 besitzt, kann hier getrost zum Anstoß rufen!

Gamestyle (Nov 04, 2007)
They say familiarity breeds contempt; maybe that's the reason for Pro Evo Soccer's continued assault on EA's footballing monopoly. Considering the resources at EA's disposal, the practised excellence of their programmers and artists, and the experience of well over a decade of development, there should be more put into the game. Some would call it inevitable diminished returns, but with Pro Evo still the footy game of choice for serious gamers and the draw of the familiar license only capable of so much, perhaps EA genuinely need to reboot the football game in the same way Skate reboots the extreme-sports genre, if only to stay competitive.

Une partie de FIFA est morte cette année et les versions PS2 et PC semblent mourir avec elle. L'équipe de développement en charge du projet n'a finalement eu pour mission que de tenter de maintenir à la surface un gameplay et une réalisation graphique dépassés. La mission n'est pas vraiment un succès.
