EA reveal FIFA Wii controls

Some fresh information from EA has surfaced on how the Wii version of FIFA 2008 will handle.

  • Flick the Wiimote down or up, relating to low or high passes.
  • Direction of the flick (left or right) dictates the direcion of the pass.
  • Perform throw-ins by raising both the Wiimote and Nunchuk then bringing them down.
  • Use the analog stick to add spin on corner kicks etc.
  • Unlock special characters like RonaldMiinho

That makes gameplay way more simpler than over-complicated button controls. That's what put me off previous football games. Three more cheers for the Wii Remote.

Only the throw ins impress me there.

Let's just hope that it plays well. I have lost interest in soccer games since FIFA 98, so hopefully this one brings something fresh besides updated rosters and clubs.

Why the hell can't they just use A to pass.

Awkward but they should make wii-motes for the legs.

I'm expecting this game to be dodgy. The controls seem fiddly.

RonaldMiinho? Is that supposed to be a bad pun that incorporates the Mii into the name of the best soccer player (not my opinion) or is it a typo.

Sounds like screwing up the controls.

Pah! I won't be getting Wii FIFA at all in that case. I also refuse to get any DS game where its controls are ABSOLUTELY stylus-exclusive. Using the stylus for some functions (e.g Pokemon Ranger) is fine, but I refuse to be forced to play my games in any single way. As a result, I will only buy DS games where alternative methods are being offered.

Footy controls to die for. I'm expecting pro evo to get the controls correct on Wii but this sounds ok. Anolog to spin corner kicks? Why not ball bending corners, crosses and free kicks via 3d motion?

I would care, but this is soccer. I'd rather read a book than play soccer.

The thing about the Wii version is that it is played up and down like Madden rather than left to right. Mmm strange.

Scooby the fact that you call it "soccer" is bad enough. Read MORE books (a must), but don't post just to bash the world sport. I'm looking forward to it. Thank god for gamefly.

Classic controls have to be used for fifa 08, that is easier and the camera has to be normal.

Is it only available to play up and down for real? And not side to side.

This is one of the best games I have played. The shooting difficulty has increased from FIFA 2007.

Does fifa 09 have online play and does it still have the normal type of matches (without the miis).

PES is way better, take it from someone whose played both. I spit on this fifa game, I heard fifa 09 is good when it comes out though.
