I have no idea what these people the so called 'Pro Evo Loyal' are talking about, where is the fun in playing a new game if its just as easy as all the previous titles, Get a Grip, wheres the fun in picking a team with one good player and dribbling all the way to score a goal, Pro evo has never been about that. This is by far the best of the Pro Evos, not since i first played International superstar soccer delux on Snes have i enjoyed playing a football Sim. Granted its a lot harder to dribble but the passing is fantastic and if you have a 1080 TV, you'll appriciate the looks and smoothness even more. Also what are comments like 'you can't tackle without being sent off', the tackling is good despite what anyone else says, you will get sent off if you try and break a player in half, but doesn't that happen in really Football, I think so.
The previous reviews all sound like they are coming from those players who don't know the game of football, and how you need to utilise a full team of players rather than giving it to a Ronaldo or a Messi and trying to skin everyone.
One feature i love is one on ones with the goalie and a defender at your back, if you score this watch the replay and you'll see the defender tug at your jersey, awesome. The incusion of the Champions league is brilliant too,
The biggest gripe of this game though, is the absolute Chronic Commentry, its is truely dreadfull. The Sooner they get Andy 'Take a Boo' Gray the better.
Also the legend building thing has still to convince me too, they tried this on the N64 with ISS 98 and it didn't work then either, it was to long and boring, But get a group of mates round some beers and do your own tournement and you have a great time. Espesially when you get gubbed 5-1 by Nigeria when you're Man U, .. Lousy Random button :-)
The best thing about this game, is that it makes you think more, tactics are more important, you can't constantly use the one attack method as the computer learns a doubles up on the good players, but this makes more space in other areas of the park, just like real football.
Thanks Konami, for Killing my social life for the next year, or until Resistance 2 comes out.
