Pro Evolution Soccer 2008
Best soccer game ever
I am no soccer expert but what I can tell you is this is one of the fun sports games on the Wii. The gameplay I was skeptical at first upon purchasing as with most Wii games I have low expectations. But, Konami did a really good job with gameplay and the controls are about the most unique layout and mapping job I have experienced in the 22 years I have been gaming. One thing I am happy to say also and it was a surprise to me as the instruction manual is very in depth which todays sports games are usually a few pages but nope not with this one Konami made it to where you will be able to learn the new control schemes. Graphically I have to be honest this is the weakest part of the game. Its not that the graphics are horrendous its just there very PS2 esque. Heres the deal the Wii is graphically more powerful than the PS2 and it would have been nice to have nicer graphics. But, in the long run once you start playing you can look past this aspect as the gameplay will engross you. Also there is a nice selection of modes to boot. Even the menus are very Wii friendly. Just point with the remote and press the A button to select. Load times are negligible and you barely notice them. Also the save feature is nicely incorporated. The sound is above average but not great. As not being a soccer fan I am assuming the announcers are doing a good job. I know I enjoy there commentary. The only part this game seemed to disappoint me was the WiFi as I could find could not find anyone to play against. Granted thats not Konami's fault it just makes me miss a mode and its probably my fault for waiting so long to make the purchase so I do not hold that against the game. Pros - great controls and easy to pick up and play, the game is pure fun, there are enough modes to keep you busy,fast loading times Cons - could use a graphical overhaul but other than that I would not change a thing Verdict - If you are a sports fan and looking for a good sports game on the Wii you cannot go wrong with Pro Evo 2008. Final Score 9 out of 10
Phenomenal Soccer Game!
I just bought my Wii a few days ago used, and this game came with it, among about 8 others. This is by far the best game I have for the Wii. It is a BLAST! The controls can be as easy as you want, or as you learn more you can do anything with them! I am still playing beginner, and winning every game, but I will be bumping up to advanced soon and we will see how I far. This is the first game that I have actually enjoyed watching the play back after a goal! The graphics are terrific. The only confusing part so far has been player acquisitions and ability points. They are complicated and deal a lot with icons that I haven't figured out yet. But I keep taking guesses on trading players and I'm still winning usually. The pace of the game is perfect. It's fast enough to be exciting, but slow enough that you can keep up and utilize the controller options while playing. Go get it...and ENJOY!
Loyal to FIFA games
I have been loyal to EA Sports' FIFA series basically since it's inception and was very cautious when considering getting PES 2008 for the Wii. After playing it for maybe a matter of 4 days, I can honestly say that EA Sports will need a miracle to separate me from my hard earned $50 for the next installment of FIFA. PES doesn't have the licensing for all the teams, but they have used recognizable team names as well as players. It's a little disppointing cheering for "Man Red" instead of a licensed team, but once the match kicks off, that small item is forgotten. The ease in which you can storm down field setting up overlaps, free runs into space and eventually either zipping or lobbing in the final crucial ball is amazing! That's not to say that it's overly easy, the timing is critical and it's not like EA in you basically hit the pass button and a direction to get the ball straight to that player. If they are on the move you can overhit the pass or put the ball behind the player, but for me that added challenge is what's making this the best soccer game I've ever played.
The first REAL soccer game for the Wii
I can't wait for this to come out; it looks like finally we will have a proper soccer game for the Wii. I bought FIFA and was extremely disappointed, the PES controls look to be very different and there will probably be a steep learning curve but it will be well worth it. Finally, a proper, functional soccer game... :)
the challenging game
oh my god i can't wait till pro evolution soccer 2008 comes out because it it the best soccer game ever created and way better than fifa and its challenging for you because of the controls and you can play people around the world. So i wouldn't wait to buy i would get when it first comes out.
omg its finally here WE:08 omg ima get this game its better than all the games put together this game owns everything and plus its for wii i dont have any soccer games for the wii yet so it maybe alittle wierd for me and this will be my first but ill get used to it!!
I can't wait!!!
I can't wait!!! I love WE: Pro 2008. I had this Game for PS2 and loved it. This Soccer game is better than the Mario and FiFa. It's fast, more real and very fun. I didn't like soccer before until I've bought this game for PS2. Although, I only watch the World Cup. Buy it, you won't regret it.
Winning Eleven for the Wii is so much better than any other sports games on the Wii.The technique of the controls is far better than you would imagine it.As if.This game reeks ,trust me,you would pay NOT to play it.I would give it 1 and a half stars.THIS GAME SUCKS BIG TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Winning Eleven Pro Soccer for Wii? I hope though that they can let you play it with the Wii Classic Controller. But anyway this game is better than FIFA By far. And because of that the only time I would ever consider buying FIFA is during the World Cup.
This is going to be so dumb because they aleady have Fifa 08 and Super mario strikers. No one buy this game because I have seen video clips of it and it is extreemly dumb and will be a waste of money.
