Product Description

Product Description

FIFA 08 on the Wii makes it easy for the whole family to play and enjoy soccer with a flick of the wrist. Featuring superstar Ronaldinho as the first soccer player created as a unique and playable mini character, you’ll experience soccer like you never have before.

There are two ways to play. In the main game, FIFA 08 on the Wii is a truly authentic soccer experience with more control than ever before. Now you pass, shoot, and perform trick moves all with a flick of the wrist. The all-new unique Footii Party with Ronaldinho mode introduces three party games featuring Ronaldinho as his own unique avatar. Play Juggling, Table Soccer and Boot It with your self-created Mii character to unlock Ronaldinho and take on the champ. Have fun and watch the meter count your calories burned.

The game’s revolutionary FreeMotion controls help level the playing field for all players and turns FIFA 08 on the Wii into a physical, social activity. Use motions to control everything from tackling to shooting and throw-ins to freekicks. Send the ball exactly where you intended with a wave of the Wii remote and Nunchuk. It's easy to pick-up and play and with the in-game Soccer Academy you can learn basic and advanced controls in more than 30 interactive tutorials. Each lesson teaches you how to master the FreeMotion controls and perform all the necessary movements to dominate on the pitch. Or you can choose to play using EA SPORTS Family Play, a simplified control system using just the Wii remote that enables novice players to focus on having fun while the console does the rest. Choose to play the style that best suits your skills.

FIFA 08 thrusts you into the action and challenges you to play like a pro to win glory for your club. Mesmerise defenders with authentic individual skill and play like a real soccer player. Dictate the play with all-new controls for through-passing and crossing, or control your goalkeeper in one-on-one situations to deny an onrushing striker. Intelligently manage your club by preparing for each specific opponent using new custom formations. Design your own unique strategy to create the perfect formation and tactics. Move players to the exact position in relation to team-mates to undermine the opposition.

FIFA Soccer 08 has licences for all of the world’s top leagues, over 570 licenced teams and more than 14,000 players. Plus, the award-winning Interactive Leagues first introduced in FIFA Soccer 07, now comes to the Wii. Represent your club online* (this feature requires an Internet connection) against your rivals throughout the season in the F.A. Premier League, Bundesliga, French League or Mexican 1st Division. When they play, you play.

Amazon.co.uk Review

The greatest battle of the new football season is not between any real world club but between the virtual giants of FIFA and Pro Evolution Soccer. Konami’s game has always been the favourite but last year FIFA closed the gap to such a degree that the title race has never been closer. This year’s FIFA uses a completely new game engine, for the first time built specifically for the next gen consoles. But improved graphics and animation are only the half of it, with just as much focus going on the artificial intelligence thanks to the new "35 point decision engine". What this basically means is that every player on the pitch is fully aware of those around him and constantly thinking about tactics and position when not under your control.

Other changes include better modelled physics for taking a shot on goal, which take into account everything from air pressure to the angle of your foot. You’re also able to create your own special moves to replicate every possible trick from real life. There are also new game modes including Be A Pro which challenges you to play the role of a single player through a whole season or career. On top of this there are revamped online leagues to play a virtual season in the Premier League, Bundesliga, French League or Mexican 1st Division against real opponents. With 620 licensed teams, 30 offline leagues and 15,000 players as well FIFA might just have made enough new signings this year to put it over the top.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the wait and the money 30 Sep 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you already own a Wii then there is no point in thinking about all the other console versions. You've made your choice and you pretty much know what you're getting & what the limitations are. Once you've done this, you realise that the Fifa 08 Wii game is what you have been waiting months for and it doesn't let you down. Sure, the controls are hard to master initially - but there are so many options available, and there is always the simple mode where you only worry about passing/shooting. But persevere with the advanced mode and you will soon revel in the control you have over the players. Sure, there is the party mode which is not really the spirit of Fifa, but who cares, if you don't like it then don't use it - after all its just a bit of fun and is certainly in the spirit of the Wii itself. Overall, highly addictive and well worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good football game 30 Sep 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Wow this game really works, Im surprised there are these negitive reviews, I thought this game plays very well, there are a couple of control options which both work well.

The Game works very well online and I had no problem find people as there are forums where you can get a game or wait for a verse game as well as interactive leagues.

The mini games are ok but the table football is the good one, that is quite fun and works.

Im very happy with this game go get it

3.0 out of 5 stars Fifa on wii is a gamble that pays off! 5 Oct 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
On first glance it may look like Fifa 08 for wii is just a cut down version of the ps2 version, with no manager mode or be a pro mode replaced with a slightly rubbish 'footie party' mode, but you would be wrong as the wii version gets many things right.

The good points are that the controls work extremely well, for the most part, they are ultimately very involving and make the game more fun. The graphics are also superb, and a huge step up from fifa 07 on the GC. There are modes that help you to learn the controls, and tournaments etc. The gameplay is great as well, it's fast paced, fun arcade action, but the AI can be slightly frustrating at times.

Overall Fifa 08 is a great effort and i'm sure EA will be able to build on this game in next year's edition.

8.4/10

4.0 out of 5 stars Essentially great but annoying flaws 7 April 2008
By C. Page
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Is it just me or does this game become annoyingly hard when you progress to semi-pro level? In amateur mode I can easily win about 8-0 over a 12 minute game yet if I progress to the next level I'm lucky if I can even win a game. The other team players all have an extra yard of speed and when you do get in the box you always get tackled before you can pull the trigger. It is so annoying it makes me get quite angry and if that's not bad enough, when you manage to get a shot in Clive Tyldesley starts making sarcastic comments like "He's never going to beat the keeper from that far out it barely reached him..." and I'm thinking "well yeah so stop making it so difficult for me to shoot then!!!"
Also is it just me or is it almost impossible to score from a free kick? The computer manages to do it with annoying frequency but I can't get the hang of free kicks no matter how many I get (which is actually not that many against the computer because it hardly ever fouls). Other flaws are the incorrect commentary (saying that keeper saved it when it was nowhere near the keeper...not keeping up with the action so remarks are made long after the action has already happened). Also shot choice between finesse and driven shot seems to be random. And where is the champions league, world cup or european championship in the tournament mode?? I'd also love to see a 'retro' tournament mode where you can pick old world cup games with old players, for example Argentina '78 with the likes of Mario Kempes with the old fashioned radio-mic commentary sound..or Italia 90 with Gazza and Lineker..how good would that be???
Apart from the flaws it's very realistic and enjoyable, especially in amateur mode where it's easier.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The controls do take a great deal of getting used to as obviously it is completely different to playing on other consoles. Once you have the grip of the basics, it is a very enjoyable game. I have played about 30 games so far and I'm nowhere near to learning all the moves (tricks especially) - and there are alot of moves!

On-line gaming is probably best feature - there are some very good players out there! Just been thrashed by some French dude playing with Marsaille (I was Man U)!

Graphics are good enough though not the best feature. Worth the £30 I paid for it. Will be recommending my mate with a Wii buys it.

4.0 out of 5 stars The funnest FIFA yet! Simply Wii-Tastic 23 Jan 2008
By Picard TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This has to be one of my biggest surprises since owning a Wii (for about a year now). Originally after reading the negative reviews, I wasn't inclined to buy the game. But to be honest, i'm not a hardcore gamer - I literally play for a little bit in my spare time, so after looking in the Game store the other day, I decided to at least try it out. Probably the best decision i've made in a long while!

I've been playing FIFA for over 8 years now across many formats, but have found this edition to be the best yet. Why? Quite simply because it's been made to give the gamer(s) in question some fun and excitement. This has rarely been a route for EA, as we've seen in the past few years their attempts to copy the Pro Evo series by targeting the games for hardcore footie fans. This year however, they had the perfect opportunity to use the Wii!

From its opening menu, you already get a glimpse this game is 'not' to be taken too seriously. It's something that should be enjoyed - not to get frustrated and throw your pad around. To enforce this concept, a Wii-only feature for this game is 'Footii Party' - a nice section of the game were you have 3 different games; Table Football, Juggle It, and Boot It. All of these are fun games. Boot it requires you to beat the opposition player (a friend, for instance) in goal from the penalty spot by hitting targets. The more targets you get, the more points, etc etc. Juggle It, I hope, explains itself, while the Table Football is a nice idea, but is maybe just to restricting for the Wii remote. All in all, this section of the game that springs at you when you first play this is a fun, bright, and great way to have fun with friends and definitely family!

Then their is the online feature.
