Just How Good Is Pro Evo 2008?
Finally, a sports game for Wii that makes the end experience smarter, not dumber. No arbitrary waggle just for the sake of waggle. Just really intelligent IR implementation for soccer bouts overrun with strategy and big plays. The learning curve is steep, but if you stick with it, you will be rewarded with one of the most innovative and altogether fun sports offerings in years.
The Wii edition of Pro Evo 2008 is the most interesting of all the console versions, and if you’re a little burned out on the series’ more traditional (and stagnant) offerings, it’s also the most fun.

I am a big sports game fan; Madden, MLB, Fifa. I have never played a Pro Evo series, I am pretty excited to finally get my hands on this game. I have never seen scores like these for a Sports game, it is pretty impressive.
