This game struck me as a pleasant surprise when I got my hands on it last week - Euro 2008, the official game for the international European Championship this summer. As a die-hard PES fan since many many years back I wasn't expecting much - but EA has gotten their stuff together, and done a very good game that promises interesting things for Fifa 09. See more inside for tons of images and a pair of videos from the game.
The graphics are simply incredible, and looks very good both in replays and in-game. EA has done an even better work on their usual great presentation, putting together a bunch of nice menus and tons of details about the players. World Cup 06 and Euro 2004 seriously lacked enough content to satisfy me, but this year it has enough to justify the price tag: my favourite is the fantastic Be a Pro mode with an enhanced "Be the captain" mode, having you competing against three other CPU or human controlled players through B national games, to finally reach the spot as captain in the national team of choice.
The Be A Pro mode is apparently a blast online and very popular within the Fifa community. The online mode also has a leaderboard for the world's countries, giving you and all the other players the chance to take your nation to the top of the gaming world as you earn more and more points.
The game also lets you play through the qualification rounds, meaning there is hope for you England fans out there. You can also re-play big matches from previous Euro tournaments. Below you will find a video of me doing a qualification game with England, and a video of me playing as France and Thierry Henry in the Be A Pro mode.
In other news, I recently got a great 720p capture card. Unfortunately, my processor isn't enough to handle the resolution, so I will use 480p for a couple of weeks a head. The images will always be in 720p though.

I'm honestly still dumbfounded how you Americans thought that Trump as a president was a good idea. You guys saw everything he did at the presidential campaign and still almost 50% voted on him. (1 Hour ago)
