This game is very entertaining and enjoyable. The play is improved using a controller instead of the Wii Remote. Like a lot of games made for the Wii, the graphics are in need of improvement. The commentators get old after a couple of games.
Online mode is enjoyable, but would again be improved if you could "smack" talk with your other opponent.
I like the concept of the pointer passing. It gives flexibility and creativity to ball movement that conventional game controls can't deliver. However, having played soccer games for fourteen years now, it's difficult and frustrating having to learn this new system. Not to mention that it is impractical to perform tricks with the D-pad within the flow of a match.
Additionally, I HATE having to shake the remote when i want to kick the ball. It feels uncomfortable.
It is still the best soccer game on the Wii, so far, and it is a fun game to play if you dont mind learning a new way of playing soccer games. PES 08 has slightly better controls but lacks the one thing that FIFA has always had. Graphics and licensing.

this game is pretty fun and not hard to play. i actually had no idea how you could play this game on the wii but it was easy. there is some challange to it but even if you have never played it, you learn fast just like me. it is worth renting it!
