If you are a soccer player, this definitely might be a game for you. it lets you really use strategy as part of your game play... making other players make runs into open space, have defenders guard a certain area of the pitch a certain way. better shot placement and ball control than you can do with Fifa '09. But the graphics are very konami-ish, more suited for an arcade.
all-in-all it was a good game, and lets you delve deep into the tactical aspects of this great sport. But for me personally, Fifa '09 is just more my cup of tea.
Soccer is always best on the Wii and FIFA 08 set the bar so high that PES 08 could not match it. (Fifa 09 AVOID!!!). This year the menu is more streamlined and the gameplay options are more then Fifa; the penalties are better and the replay is smoother; however the presentation is still lacking the commentary is ok and the shooting is similar to Fifa but with the nunchuck instead. The worst part is the running; it gets difficult to run sometimes and it is hard to see. I was going to give it a 7 but it improved so much I was generous and gave it an 8. Still Rent it but BUY FIFA 08!!!!!
