Possibly the wackiest control system for any game on the Wii, it looks like it will take you a while to understand and master the control system. Well, you're wrong. CONTROLS: When you start the game up, you get a few basic tutorials of how to do it, and it is all fairly simple. Hold A and point the Wii remote to where you want to run, simple. To pass, point to the player or space you want to pass to and press B. To shoot, you swing the nunchuk, which at times can be quite irresponsive. Then, you move on to the harder skills, for example one-two's and set-pieces. These can be extremely unresponsive and happen when you don't want it too. ... Read the complete review

I first saw this on the TV advert like most people. It was intriguing to find out how well this game really played first hand as we all know Michael Owen is a bit clumsy. I encountered Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 one weekend in the Tesco sale. It must have been about £6-7, so I just had to buy it. You would be foolish not to, right? To begin with, there is quite a long tutorial that you need to complete before you can pick up the ropes and master the controls well enough to compete against the best teams in the world. You will learn how to run, dribble, pass, tackle, header, intercept, shoot, save and score. All of this is done by pointing, clicking and swinging ... Read the complete review

Pro Evolution has long been considered the ruling football game across all platforms. However, with a much improved version of FIFA already released on the Wii, Pro Evolution Soccer found itself in unfamiliar teritory of having to play catch up on the Wii. The game itself is designed specifically for the Wii (which led to it being released a lot later than versions on other consoles). To play you use the wii remote and nunchuk to guide your players around the pitch whilst instructing them to pass into the areas you indicate by pointing and clicking to where you want the ball to go. At first this is a major task to achieve but there is a very ... Read the complete review

I never really enjoyed any football games on consoles until I saw the advert for PES 2008 so thought I'd give it a try. I managed to get the game in near new condition for £15 from Game and there's very rarely another game in the Wii now! I thought that it'd be too hard to learn how to control the players with off the ball runs etc, but there's a very useful learning base called "camps", where it shows you the bare basics you need to get started right through to advanced skills, such as offside traps and set pieces. I'm glad that Konami realised that this would be a problem for most users and I feel that they dealt with it very well. With ... Read the complete review

Having been a football fan from an early age I couldn't wait to get a football game for my shiny, new Wii. STOP PRESS Given that I support West Bromwich Albion, I guess I can't be considered a football fan, instead a tortured soul whose endured some terrible football matches. Anyway enough of that, having reviewed Fifa 2008 for the Wii you can guess my disappointment when I came to play EA's latest offering. Therefore my hope turned towards Konami's Pro Evolution 2008. Despite never being a great fan of the Pro Evolution series, I felt that after the mundane experience that was Fifa 2008 it could only get better. How right I was. The success of Pro Evolution ...
