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 (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: 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.
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: 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.
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.
Summary: Konami has done a fantastic job making PES 2009 perfect for the Wii. The gameplay is very detailed with the controls and there's so many different settings to play on it doesn't get repetitive. The ability the download player updates is an excellent feature too. I had Robbie Keane off my team faster than Rafa Benetiz ever was able to sell hm in real life!
Summary: I played Winning Eleven 9 for three years before FIFA 09 stole me away on current generation systems. PES 2009 is almost good enough to steal me back to Konami's camp. The only reasons I say almost are because the Option File save is locked so there's no easy way for me to put a lot of time into the new Master League mode and be able to backup my progress to an SD card; and I love the right-stick defensive switching system in FIFA and PES 2009 is still feels pretty dated...
