For a first PES game on wii i thought it was going to be amazing, but it's not, it's really bad actually. I found it hard to control the players and there wasn't really much to do, the next one should be way, way better.
As a uni student, what I really wanted in this was a game that anyone can pick up and play and, after a few hours of practice, be good enough to at least sneak a win over a more experienced friend. Unfortunately, the new controls mean that this is just not the case. I'll admit that what they've done with the wii version is impressive, and in single player it can make things easier in certain situations. But if, like me, what you really want is just a typical game of pro that you can pick up whilst lying upside down on the sofa and play, then this may not be what you were hoping for.
This game is amazing it ties in the love of football and tactics. The gameplay for a start is brilliant, the many ways to pass or combo passing is good. The game is pretty long due to all of the leagues, also its extend due to the online feature. The graphics are basic for a football game. Overall my rating is 9/10.
Part of the changes did seem to have a more open view of how to play the game rather than the orthodox methods you get on PC and other consoles, however I found the controls not only a little confusing and frustrating at times..
But especially on two player I found the cursors clicking on your player intrusive and cluttered, I couldnt see which way my player was facing if player 2 had a pixel over me clicking to tackle..
The idea is there but for me this is a little one step forward two steps back
I waited for this game to come out on the Wii months after it came out on the PS3, and was it worth the wait?....YES!!! most definitely! i bought it as soon as it came out and i am still playing it now, months on and its just as much fun! I love the controls they have set up on it using the numchuck and the main controller! It takes you through tutorials as you go through the game so you get better and better at using the controls! My fav bit of the game is the 'champios road' mode, which i dont think is on the ps3? im not 100% on that. But it is a great part. As you play other teams you have the opertunity to win players from their teams, your players get better as you play through the matches! when u think u r about to complete this stage of the game it opens more matches up for you, its awesome! you can play it for hours and hours! i have! A must have game if you own a wii, football fan or not, u will love it!!
