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.
PES 2008 is a good game, it has players playing soccer. It really doesn't have more than that. The Master league was fun and had some variety but beyond that everything seemed the same from the previous winning eleven game. Personally i like FIFA much better.

Whats the deal, you cant play this online as a rental cause you need to enter the registration code. That makes renting this USELESS as renters dont have the code!! This sux. And the game is not PS3 quality!
