Having been torn between the Fifa & Pro evolution soccer series for a number of years, this is the title that has pushed me towards Fifa. Fifa 07 was good, but this is fantastic. Graphically the game is not bad considering we now have next-gen consoles. The gameplay is what makes this game so good. The controls feel like-like, instant reactions from the players as soon as a button is pushed, unlike years gone by where it takes a second or so to respond.

Another plus point is the quality of the passing and shooting system. No longer will a pass just land at the feet of a teammate, with balls being hit long, short and generally not being hit very well. The new shooting system means that you can score any type of goal, as opposed to older versions of this game where every goal looks the same. You really feel you have accomplished something when you score a goal on this as it can be quite tricky to break a defence down.

The game also features a new co-op be a pro season mode where up to 4 friends can take control of 1 footballer from a team and progress through the season, eventually hoping to become captain. This works quite well but the highlight for me again is the new improved manager mode. Play season after season trying to win all the big domestic and european trophies which include domestic leagues, cups, champions league and Uefa cup.

All in all a must for any true football fan and honestly as i have played the xbox 360 and Playstation 3 versions of this game. Gameplay wise you cannot beat this PS2 version.
