    Great game if I had a playstation 2 controller. Otherwise, it's just frustrating knowing what you could have done had the xbox controller been designed better or Konami had taken the time to reassign the button layout. I know you can switch the controller configuration but moving assignments means some valuable aspect of the game (through passes, etc) will suffer.

  1. The best soccer game on the Xbox to date.
  2. 100
    Even lacking that [online] option, WE 8 stands as the best soccer game of all time. It looks fantastic and plays out of this world.
  3. With wonderfully solid controls, great graphics, enough game modes and enough teams to select, this game is one you should not miss if you love sports in general.
