    Suprising Depth, fantastic controls. I'm amazed at how great this is, it looked very cartoony to me before I actually played it. Best Nintendo Baseball game to date.

    Game is pretty awesome, only MAJOR problem is that it doesn't have a season/manager mode! If you can live without that, then go pick this game up now.

    A huge improvement on previous iterations, thanks mainly to the innovative control method, that whilst not being 100% accurate makes up for it with the sheer joy of slamming the ball in the back of the net.

    At first this game may feel weak and lifeless. Yes it is a tired port with no manager mode and yes the controlls can feel hard at times. But give this game a few days/weeks and it kicks in. Everything falls nicely into place, with wii extras and a very good online mode.

  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.
