In FIFA 08, you are given the option of having full, manual control over your passes and shots. This is useful because unlike the default assisted settings, the computer has no effect on where your passes and shots go and how much power they will have. There are other settings besides just manual and assisted, you also have the option of semi-assisted settings. However, I recommend that you pick one or the other. To change these settings: Main Menu - My FIFA 08 - Settings - Controller Settings.
