[QUOTE="marti_, post: 0]i'll tell you guys what needs to be improved: long range shooting and out of the goal square penalty shooting.

if you just tap shoot in a penalty shot the ball has no power and is saved. if you press circle a tiny bit more the player boots it over the nets etc. its almost impossible to get a goal outside of the goal square or even take a long distance penalty.

applying tricks was also very very hard, compared to other FIFAs. doing tricks n things needs to be made easier.[/quote]

long range shooting needs to be worked on, yes. not because it's impossible (it can be done, quite often I might add), but because it's inconsistent. 35 yards out and the ball goes over the keeper and under the bar, but 25 yards out and the keeper makes a wonder save. and this is when you're wide open.

penalty shooting, it can be worked on, but it's fine as it is imo. practice penos more! check out the bar when you're shooting them - just a little bit under 3/4 of the way through gets you exactly the top corner, anything more hits the bar or goes over.

with regards to shooting penos, they should address the guessing aspect. it's balanced, for sure, so imo it's fine as it is, but it could be improved. you should be able to save shots while standing in the center (not having to use the right analog to move around when he shoots) unless it hits the exact corner, which is quite hard to do (especially online).

Yea, that right there makes it a buy for me. It sucked when I learned that on 08 you could only do one single game and I was hoping that you could play the Be A Pro mode like the Manager mode is where you play for so many years. The fact you can play in a national game is a pretty good bonus.

I haven't played Fifa since 04' but I was wondering if there will be a practice mode where I can just run around and practice dribbling, shooting, pk's, passing etc. Thanks for the replies!

the only pratice like mode in FIFA 08 is inbetween menus and while it loads a match. you can practice dribbling, pks, free kicks, moves, and just take shots. don't know if they'll improve this aswell as little info is even known about the game. it would be nice to be able to add a teammate and practice passes and crosses or a defender to practice ways of getting around him and such

ok, if someone else can do long range shots then maybe i need some practice on them. however, compared to other fifa titles, 08 was still harder in terms of long range shots and players performing tricks.

It's hard to belive the difference in the two games on the same platform, PES is finished by the looks of it.
