I recommend this game to everybody I talk to. The gameplay is tough to master. The controls and passing are difficult at first. But after playing a few games, it became a lot easier. The initial setup for playing uses just the wiimote, but if you add the nunchuk, you have way better control with passing and running. Shooting is done automatically for you as soon as you shake your wiimote. I liked that shaking the wiimote was how your player shot because sometimes it kind of drives home the score, releasing frustration and joy. The characters on the game looked very much like their real life counterparts. I liked the different game modes too. Zakumi's dream team was cool to be able to go from a horrible team with a rating of 50, to a complete worldwide all-star team with a rating 84. Playing in the WC was cool too because you could setup the 32 team field how ever you wanted. You could put teams in that hadn't ever been in a WC and take out teams that have won a few. I just think it would have been cool to take my Zakumi Dream Team and play in the WC, but I couldn't. There is a great section called Hit the Pitch that you can just jump in and play a game real quick between any team in the world, without having to be in the actual tourny. I just thought this game rocked and think everyone should play it.
