Music and gaming are a perfect match for each other. I mean you do know of some of the nicest sound tracks coming from certain games and so on. Recently there has been the trend for some of the major first person shooters to engage with some of the biggest music sensation of the current day and age.

Seeing the fascinating screen previews of Fifa 08, watching trailers on Fifa 08’s gameplay and reading and hearing interviews, articles etc on how great Fifa 08 is. Indeed I must say, I am really impressed with the text I read and the visual trailers I watch. It got me really hyped up and made me want to have more, whether is it pictures or trailers, I want them all. However, when the long awaited demo came out recently, my hype went down and I was not impressed but depress. It was disgusting (A strong word but it describes the demo really well)

The gameplay neither met my expectations nor improved from the previous version (Fifa 07). The graphics were terrible and gameplay the same, if not worst. Of course you people will say that it is just a demo, things will be different when the real thing comes out. But in this real world, first impressions always matters. People still judge the book by its cover. What can I say? I’m glad that at least EA came out with a FIFA 07 replica demo to try impress or let us say to win over Konami’s fans? For heaven’s sake the demo made me want to play Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer even more.
