Product description

Product Information
The Wii version of PES offers the same level of realism that has established the series as the definitive football title, but has been undergone a radical rethink to make the most of the Wii's motion-sensitive control system. Using a point and drag system, the player uses the Wii Remote to guide the player with the ball, and perform all the skill moves and close control with subtle movements of their hand. The new system gives the player full control over their team, and allows the man marking of specific threats, while shakes of the Wii Nunchuk can be used to perform sliding tackles, and send the goal keeper out to clear a loose ball. The strategic elements are also easily accessed, with the directional controls of the Wii Remote used to activate tactical plays and spring counter attacks or send players tracking back.

PES 2008 for Wii features six game modes, spanning Match, League and Cup elements, and Training and Trade section. The new version also features an exclusive Champions Road competition, wherein players take their chosen team to compete in league competitions all over the world. Full Mii support is also present, and users can integrate up to 16 pre-defined Miis into a team, while the ever-changing teams can be stored on to the Wii Remote and switched between two linked Remotes.

PES 2008 also has an online element, allowing users to play Free Matches against unknown opponents, or Friend Matches against people on the Wii’s Friends list. Team data can also be sent to friends via the console’s WiiConnect24 system.

    Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 (Wii)

    Great game, for soccer lover's!!!
    "The world’s most popular soccer game is back under a new name, Pro Evolution Soccer 2008. Formerly Winning Eleven, PES 2008 builds upon the competitive spirit embodied by its predecessor with some major improvements. PES gamers will discover a more immersive, vivid soccer experience than they’ve ever played! Hot-shots will have plenty of new moves to show-up their opponents, or get shown-up so tape those ankles!"

    FUTBOOOOOL

    Created: 10/09/08
    This is not your conventional Futbol(soccer) game. Even when you play in your PC or a Playstation, you can choose an easy level and it will be relatively simple to start playing. Here you need to take training and it takes a lot longer to start playing the game.

    HOWVER! Once you start playing (3rd or 4th match), you will find it is the BEST VIDEO GAME in its category.

    The fact that you can point the player or place where you want the ball to go to makes life a lot easier. You are only relying on the human error rather than the arrows in a PS or Xbox controller.

    It is the same story for when you are in defence.

    If I had to point out negatives... the graphics of the players and the game are amazing, however, the graphics of the crowd and the stadium itself is not great at all.

    I highly recomend this game... On my Wii I play 4 games: Wii Sports, Wii Play, Mario Party and PES... PES I play every day... the rest, on rare ocations.

    A fantastic use of the Wii controller

    Created: 16/12/08
    This is one of the best sports titles for the Wii. It's programmed so that you can use the controller to send multiple players on off-ball runs to specified areas, while still controlling the man with the ball, and passing to one of the sent players. The control takes some time to get used to, but the pace of the game itself in "season" mode enables one to get used to it and learn progressively, rather than having everything thrown at you at once.

    The Best Footy on the Wii

    Created: 29/05/08
    It definitely takes some time to get used to the controls. After that, it's a pleasure to play this game. The way the Wii allows you to pass the ball on the field is like no other...The only downside is playing defense. I've played this game for quite a while and still can't figure out how to slide tackle an opponent. Playing defense takes a lot of patience and is ultimately frustrating in this game. But I'm sure this title will only get better in the future. It's a lot of fun to play. A great title made specifically for the Wii that will not disappoint soccer fans. Definitely worth buying over EA's Fifa 2008 which is a complete disappointment on the Wii.

    Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 for the Wii

    Created: 08/10/08
    This game is the soccer game I've been looking for! Takes a bit to get used to the controls, but there are plenty of training sessions to take care of that. Graphics are great, player movement is fluid and life-like. Extremely fun game!
