Overall: Not only did Winning Eleven 8 shows EA how to make games, but they tell them how to enjoy them! Winning Eleven 8 is a must have for fans and for those who wants to play and have fun.
Gameplay: Never a soccer game have been this realistic. Every moves feels like your on the field and playing the game yourself. With a lot of game modes to choose and the most extensive training ever made in a soccer game. Winnin Elven 8 shows to everybody that soccer is not a boring sport. The Master League mode is the most deeper carreer mode ever seen. Play with default roster or you can play with a minimize roster that you had to help them increase their games if you want them to get on a superstar level. Or you can just create a team (color, logo, flag, name...) and get your new franchise to the championship. The only big deception in all this is that not all the teams keep their name in this game. Don't know why but Konami decide to rename some teams. For example: Manchester United is named Man Red in WE8?

If Konami wants to give gaming world an example of what a real sport game should be, well they prove everybody that you can put realism in a game and still found some place to put the fun part. Okay the game is not Xbox Live compatible. And that's a big deception for the players. That's because Winning Eleven 8 is (Pro Evolution Soccer 4 in Europe) and they didn't release WE8 in Europe that's why we here in north America had to play solo and not on Xbox Live.
Graphics: One of the big point in this game is that you never seen a game looks like this. The player models and the field are reproduce just fine. The game menus are also pretty made and easy to get in. The stadiums are great. The crowds are a little straight. You also got a lot of camera type to choose from.
Sound: That's maybe the wickest point of the game. The sounds on the field are great. The sound of the ball hitting the post or the sound that the player made in the game. But the music is awful. It seems they put and old elevator song and it play continously throughout the game. The ambiance in the stadium doesn't get through you just like the FIFA franchise where the crowds play a big part in the game. The commentary can be played in English, French, Spanish, Deutch or Italian and Portuguese. What to please a lot of fans.
Suggestions: Next time put the Xbox Live please!!!
