I got mine yesterday, preordered from GAME. After playing it for a few hours last night, I have to say my first impressions are not good.
My last gen console was a PS2 and I was a big fan of the Pro Evo series for the life of that console. I havent played a FIFA game since FIFA 2003 on PS1. So I can't remmember how unrealistic the older versions felt compared to Pro Evo but if I had to make comparisons I'd say that FIFA 08 on Wii has more in common with Mario Strikers than reall football.
I have been patiently waiting for a football game to come out since buying my Wii back in January and due to my dissapointment in every game I have owned for the system so far, I decided that the way the Wii handles a football game would be the deciding factor in whether or not I keep it (as football games and sports games in general are my favourites).
The reason I opted for the Wii this gen is because of its potential for sports based games, and they have all dissapointed except Wii Sports Bowling.
In my opinion the Wii is the console of today (but certainly not tomorrow), so enjoy the reign while it lasts because both the 360 and PS3 will out live it. The only reason the Wii is so successful at the moment is because of the brilliant advertising, but if you look around at different forums alot of people are dissapointed with it when they finally manage to get their hands on one.
To be out almost a year and its best game to be a 2 year old last gen port speaks volumes in my opinion.
Wii games I have owned (and how I rate them):
RE 4 (8.5/10)
SSX Blur (8/10)
Wii Sports (7/10)
Mario Strikers (7/10)
Excite Truck (7/10)
Red Steel (6/10)
Tiger Woods 2007 (6/10)
Trauma Centre (6/10)
Wario Smooth Moves (5/10)
Zelda Twilight Princess (5/10)
Wii Play (4/10)
Big Brain Academy (3/10)
G1 Jockey (2/10)
FIFA 08 (undecided!!!) - I will give it a chance but not impressed thus far!
