Winning Eleven 8 Review (Xbox)

We have just posted our Winning Eleven 8 review. Find out what Dale Erickson has to say about it.
"Konami is back with the latest installment of their award winning soccer series with “Winning Eleven 8 International”. This series has always been at the top of its game, but recently the "FIFA" series has started to close the gap. On top of that, the "FIFA" series has a lot of official licensing in its corner, which does a little damage in name recognition for soccer aficionados. “Winning Eleven 8 International” does have some real-world players, however. Using licenses from three of the top European Leagues (Spain, Italy, and Holland), Konami is able to help deliver some authentic players for those who feel that such things are a necessity. If you are a fan of the "Winning Eleven" series, you definitely will not be disappointed in “Winning Eleven 8 International”, but will you get your money’s worth by buying the latest version? Let's find out if the newest installment is for you."

Did any game ever receive a 5/5?

Or why is it on 5 anyway?

If any game deserves a 5, WE 8 is it.

Then what would a WE8 with the XBL play that got cut from the U.S. version deserve?

WE8 = 9/10 WE8 online = 10/10

It's just that the 5 points system limits the ratings

Not really...too many people are concerned about the score only. Read the review! That's where one can get a feel for how good a game truly is.

Re: Winning Eleven 8 Review (Xbox)

Hmmm... I honestly think WE7 was better. The midfield game was far more realistic... I just see far too many long runs and too much time spent on either end of the pitch, rather than any real battle to GET the ball into the attacking zone.

WE8 took a step backwards in terms of gameplay.
