~ My personal opinion of the game ~
I recently bought this game from GAME for £2.99 which is about the right price for a game which is quite old now in terms of football information, players and transfers. I still decided to buy it as I thought it was cheap and I didn't have a football game for the Wii so I gave it a shot. After doing all the training sessions and becoming better equipped with the controls I found it quite easy to pick up and began to score very good goals. Users use the nunchuck and the wii remote together or you can have the option to just use the Wii remote. I use the nunchuck as it is easier to user the joystick to move the player around whilst using the Wii remote to perform the passing and shooting and skills.
Using the Wii Remote brings a different type of fun the game and I found it more fun that using a PS3 pad but that's just my opinion. Overall a good game and I think I will be going out buying the new Fifa for the Wii.
~ Graphics ~
The graphics aren't great but they are still quite attractive compared to some of the graphics you get on a PS3 or XBOX as the Wii does not have the same power or engine to enable it to have similar graphics but it still does a pretty decent job and I am very happy considering the price. If you have the money I would probably buy the new FIFA after playing this copy.
~ Price & Shop ~
I bought my copy of Fifa 2008 for the Wii from GAME for a price of £2.99 which I thought was pretty decent and it turned out to be a bargain.
~ Playability ~
After having an awful experience of playing pro evolution soccer 2010 for the Wii which I thought was the worse game I have ever bought as it was useless compared to the PS3 version. But after trying the Fifa 2008 game for the Wii this is definitely a better game in terms of fun, using different skills and also playing against others online.
Playing online is quite easy and I have not encountered any problems playing the game and no glitches or problems were found when playing. I just found that I get beat a lot as the only people playing Fifa 08 online now are pros so as I am an amateur I get beat quite a bit so I would recommend you practice a bit before playing online.
~ Features ~
-A new soccer experience
-Boot it game
-Join the soccer academy
-EA Sports Family Play
Out of all these features I found the Table soccer quite fun to play and also the online play which I found to be most fun. You can play against people you know or don't know in interactive leagues which can also be quite fun.
~ Conclusion ~
Overall a nice little game, a bit old but still really fun if you haven't played a football game on the Wii. It can take a little bit of practice to pick up the controls but once you do, you will have lots of fun. The price is cheap, although the player data is old but if you just want a game that will be fun and different from your average handheld pads then this is the footy game for you.
Graphics are ok and the features are aplenty, a fab game at a reasonable price. I will be off to buy the new one for Christmas after playing this version.
~ Ratings ~
Overall rating: 8/10
Summary: Not a bad game for a decent price - a must have for those who like football games!
