    The release date for the US is 18th March (28th for europe), any chance of getting hold of this little beauty a few days early?
    Does anyone know if the US and Euro versions are supposed to be the same for the Wii?

    If you don't have a clue about his game check the vids:

    http://www.konami.com/Konami/ctl3810/cp201...ion_soccer_2008

    Amazon in the US still says 18th for the release date, anyone in the US know anything about this game?
    Thanks to freeloader finally got the japanese version working on my PAL wii and the game is amazing, would love to understand the menus and see the player names in english.

    What would have been great is if they allowed one player to use the simple pro evo mode and the other to use the playmaker mode.
    Now that would have been amazing.

    I don't really understand why they didn't leave in the standard mode for beginners. There is no way on this planet my kids will be able to play this game, it is just too complicated.

    Even though I love this game there are a few parts I think they could still improve, defending feels like a bit of a mess, you don't feel in control.
    Second whenever someone loses the ball I never get to it first. Finally I still can't decide if I like the shooting or not. At first i wasn't sure but then I pulled off one amazing lob and you realize the power you put into the shake comes through in the power of your shot.

    On the positive front the first time you manage to send your winger on a free run into the corner after he's beaten his marker and you have time to send your strikers into the box and one of them heads in a pinpoint cross you will be hooked forever. There is just no going back to a normal football game.
    Also, still having nunchuck control is awesome, you can use the point+a method for 'auto' runs up the field and into position but the nunchuck controller is superb for avoiding tackles when you get close to someone.

    I really need a manual in english though, I'm sure there are lots of things I just don't know about yet, like heading without clearing (like a pass) or cancelling a clearance or a shot.

    Haven't seen it in the usual places heard it's an excellent game. This is more of a personal must have game than SSBB.

    sounds great!! waiting for the release too!

    maybe in the next iteration they will use a dance mat-like controller for u to simulate dribbling or have a motion sensor strapped to your feet to sense kicking actions... ;p
