How much control do you want over your players in any sports game? That's right, simulation fans, the answer is simple: "as much as possible." EA appears to be offering the ultimate in control freedom when it comes to their latest soccer offering, FIFA 08. Check out this video; it shows you how - and when - to take control of the goalkeeper. If you've got what it takes, hit the R3 button to grab manual control of the goalie, and this works best when attempting to defend against breakaways and set pieces. As you can see, it might be a darn good idea to do some "GK Controlling" when you pick up the game this fall.
