I may not be a die hard soccer player, but from what I played so far, I liked this one! Music was great. Learning the controls was a bit of a chore [still have not mastered all of the advanced moves] but after selecting the right teams, I started making goals and that's what counts! I put together my own team from my Mii's - seeing the family's faces on the players was hilarious! Some negatives: getting to my Mii matches takes some cumbersome navigation, and setting up any match makes me answer which controller I want to use - this wastes a lot of time (shouldn't the game sense I have the Wii remote+ nunchuck plugged in!?) btw/ as other comments brought out, theres no point in using the other controllers (unless I guess if you want to relive the old days...) but the new controls are everything and make the whole experience!
