Summary: I had bought this game since I had no experience with this brand, PES or wii soccer games at all, only ps2 and this game is awesome. Like I said it is hard to play at first being use to pushing buttons, this goes beyond that. If you want to pass to anyone near, choose sideways controller, but if you want more precise, use the controller + nunchuck.
Summary: My son is a huge soccer fan and got this game for Christmas. He's 9 and it took him a little while to get the hang of this game. It is more complicated than his other Wii games. He was a bit frustrated with it at first, but now that he has figured it out he is having a lot of fun with it.
Summary: AutumnWindz pretty much sums it up in his review: this game is near-perfect! For me, the biggest improvement noticed from PES 2008 is in the defensive A.I. Now my other teammates actually defend the opponent player with the ball, making the game much more realistic. Excellent!!!
Summary: This is an awesome game! It has great comedy, great graphics, and fun game play. I have four games and this is my favorite. Controls are at first frustrating and the training camps are awful, so just play and read the instructions again and again and it will be fine. A must buy.
Great Control of the Ball Puts This Soccer Game Above Others

Summary: Pro Evolution Soccer (2009 or any other year) on the Wii is a great soccer game because it gives the player great control over the action on the field. Using the Wii-mote and Nunshok you can pass and shoot the ball with great precission. You can even run in one direction with the nunshok and pass or shot the ball in another direction by pointing with the wii-mote.
Summary: My son (8 years old) loves this game, a little more than the FIFA soccer that he also has and plays frequently. PES 2009 has a variety of clubs that he likes(Manchester United & Barcelona) and national teams (USA & Germany), so he is happy as a clam when playing this.
Summary: I own about 5 games for my Wii, and I get rid of weak titles quickly, especially games that aren't fun. This title is a keeper, and it's even $10 less than most games. This game really brings the enjoyment of soccer to the console. For the Wii, the graphics are amazing. The folks at Konami deserve a ton of credit for this title, and the folks at EA should pay attention, and see how this company is able to put real energy and joy into a sports title.
Summary: This is (in my opinion) the best soccer game short of lacing up n hitting the field. Rather than running one bloke all across the field and switching who you control, in this game you can control the entire team seamlessly and truly get an opportunity to think about the strategy of soccer.
