    I saw some reviews with good scores, it is a really good game?

    I've been very impressed with this game. The controls are very unique and built specific for the Wii. The controls take a bit to get used to, but the tutorials are very helpful and intuitive. I really hope there is a way to download and use a pre-modded options file (it would change team names, logos, jerseys to the real life ones)... because even though the players are in right places, playing as "Man Red" is kind of weird.

    Actually no. Google "Soccer", it seems pretty boring.

    I think you'll be better trying it first, as DjFIL said the controls are incredible and pretty unique, but they may also be not your cup of tea, once you get over that and over the low number of teams and players (compared to FIFA) you'll get a great football game that will give you hours and hours of fun, specially if you decide to go online with it.

    I have been a fan of the Winning Eleven is much better than EA's FIFA i'm a bit biased. The graphics are good, the controls are very cool and intuitive, and overall it just feels nice to play. Lots of modes and customization in the game too...even Mii integration. I haven't taken the game online yet so i don't know how the online stacks up.

    If you want a good soccer game, get PES 2008...

    easily the best of all the new pro evo games out on ALL systems!

    no latency issues online - no lag - very impressive..

    playing multiplayer on the same screen can be very irritating due
    to multiple cursors flickering about everywhere but online is great!

    The new controls are a true revelation - and to tell the truth it isn't
    perfect but the scope for greater playmaking - hence the playmaker
    moniker - makes this unmissable if you are true football fan.

    Making players run when and where you want to when you control
    another player at the same time - priceless! [​IMG]

    The only real loss of 'total football' control is when you are shooting
    on goal - but largely that is a moot point when you add up all the new
    innovations. Its an impressive way to present a new way of thinking
    when it comes to developing sports games on the Wii.

    Konami still proves that when given the right tools the Winning 11 developers
    still make a more complete and realistic game than EA and their FIFA series.

    Just a side note... the only unoffical teams are 18 of 20 in the english league (easily renameable... but can't edit logos), all other teams are properly licenced (only 5 leagues plus international sides). haven't tried online yet... but I do still suggest this game, it's a very unique (in a good way) experiance.
