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. 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.

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.

People keep complaining about the lack of manager mode, edit or create team or be a pro. So What! I know It would have been good but not all things are greener on the other side. The Xbox 360 Version has all that and the game play is very poor and the pace of the game is slow and boring.
The Wii version beats it by miles. I would rather play a game of football thats more entertaining and different to a game that is just the same each year with a few extra quirks.
Waving your wii remote around doing tricks and scoring from 30 yards seems more satisfying that just pressing a button.
Other people also mention that the camera angle is poor and you can't change it.
Maybe those people should check the settings before writing a review complaining about something they obviously dont know anything about.
The camera angle is the same as all other Fifa games with the choice of camera height and zoom.

You can't buy or sell players in this game but if your a toffee like me and would like to see Ronaldinho in an Everton shirt then all you need to do is go into the options and choose transfers. Transfers are very easy and are unlimited. Now Everton are the best team in the world and we didn't need Abramovich millions....

You can compete in all the major leagues and cups from around the world and earn points by completing certain goals. These points can go towards unlocking more grounds, shirts, boots and other accessories.

I hope this review has been helpful and you enjoy the game as much as I am.

I agree with an earlier reviewer....some people just don't seem to 'get' the Wii. For many years I was an ardent gamer...then I just grew out of it (shock horror, cue people hurling abuse). I decided to buy a Wii as it would be something fun for my wife and I to enjoy and when friends come over. As such, I don't see the disappointment with FIFA. I couldn't care less about the management side of things (I have management games on my PC), I'm only interested in picking up a footie game that I can play with friends etc. FIFA achieves this and more. It plays well (after the intial adjustment to Wii controls) and looks good. To all the whingers I ask: Why buy a flamin' Wii in the first place???

By Picard TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 23 Jan. 2008
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.

I've got to give this game full marks. I love the way how the Wiimote moves have been incorporated into the game. For a game on the Wii it couldn't be any better for me - it has all that I expected to see. I also find the table football game very enjoyable. The game has enough pick-up&go as well as depth. It hasn't disappointed me yet. EA has executed well, in my view.
