FIFA looks much better but ProEv plays a better game. Online is weak but the two-player contests are great, as as the single-player and master league. You can find option files pretty easily to change some of the kits and update the rosters. I've been a fifa fan but the ps3 fifa is still glitchy. Pro Ev looks like an xbox classic game but the gameplay is much better. If graphics is what you want, fifa is better. For a realistic game of football, ProEv still wins. The bad reviews should be taken with a grain of salt. Hours of fun.
Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 is more fun than Fifa 2008. It's not even a contest. I'm not a devoted PES fan - this is my first experience with the franchise. I have been a big fan of Fifa games in the past, and I expected to prefer it this time around, but I rented both games and it took just a few minutes for me to make up my mind. I wasn't having any fun playing Fifa. PES, on the other hand, is a blast.
I have read mixed reviews about both games, and I found it hard to find any consensus between ratings sites. The only way for me to decide was to try them both out. Fifa has the licensed teams, which admittedly is a big plus, but you can download option files to fix the fake team names on PES. I haven't tried out online play on PES, but I have heard it's so laggy that it's unplayable, so you might want to take that into consideration. The bottom line is that PES 2008 is fun to play and Fifa 2008 isn't.
