    Clunky, touchy, unresponsive controls verge on being broken. Maybe I just don't have the patience for the steep learning curve. Great dept with all the players and teams. Online is a good idea but there is a lag that makes it unplayable.

    I am returning it. I don't get the feeling I'm controlling the players. The defenders literally jump out of the way of the forward, but then someone manages to get the ball away. i guess you need a lot of practice. Maybe it's the wii controls, but the play is better with proEvolution. If you want to play a season, you can pick your team and just transfer anyone you want to I am returning it.

You only play maybe a five minute game and if you get bored of playing, the computer will generate an "random" score for you. the foosball table mini-game is kind of cool. unsatisfying. Expand

    Really dissappointed. Previous iterations had a full on season mode where you could manage the team and try to qualify for chapions league. This version has no management mode whatsoever. All you can do is play country saesons or cups on their own. Whats the biggest outrage is not being able to choose international teams in tournament mode. Totally illogical.

Online mode is promissing, hold out for pro evo if you're a true footie fan however. Expand

  1. EA's football series makes a moderately successful debut on the Wii, with family-friendly control and some neat minigames.
  2. Patience and perseverance are required. [Dec 2007, p.]
  3. Wii Sports demonstrated just how much depth can be wrung out of the simplest of mechanics like swinging the Remote. FIFA 08’s approach is almost the opposite, offering a huge variety of gestures that only superficially interact with the game. FIFA is a solid game, but this Wii port makes it harder than it should be to enjoy the strengths of the core design.
