  Poor for Pro Evo standards, but still the best footie sim.

| | See all ImranS's reviews (40)

Having been a dedicated pro evo fan from the times of iss pro 98 i was really looking forward to the next gen version of the best footie game around. However when i started playing it i noticed quite a few too many flaws for my liking. The graphics are are drab at best and the presentation was woeful. However this is nothing new to the series as the gameplay always shone through. While the mechanics are the same as previous versions the game did not make even the slightest step up to try and improve anything. The frame rate is appalling especially during replays where the game just chugs along and goalkeepers seem to have their hands covered in butter for even the most simple shots on goal.

Even the variety of game modes is limited and there are very few stadia to even play in and very few game modes. (Don't even bother trying to play online as it is unplayable at times)

A major let down for the series, it seems almost incomplete in my opinion but still my preferred choice over fifa.

  Pro Evo all the way

This games has got a lot of criticism, however in my opinion it still greatly exceeds fifa 2008, they gameplay is so much faster and the players are so much sharper.Admittedly it is unfortunate that konami could not buy the right.I have fifa 2008 and pes 2008 and have hardly touched fifa since buying pes because of the speed of the game and the gameplay.lookin forward to the new pes comin out soon, Im my opinion without doubt still the best fooball game around

  easy and fun

Ok this is like soul caliber 4 vs teken 5 for ps3
Fifa is like soul caliber cause you cant just pick it up and be good at it it takes time
But in this you just buy it and its your first football game and you can find it easy and fun like i did with tekan

  Worth Buying

I have read the reviews on this game and was not going to buy it,but, I got a pre-owned copy and have never looked back. I would have given it 5 stars if the edit function had been better as it's fairly limited,however, that does'nt seem to matter when you actually play the game as it's the closest to real football you can get.
FIFA 08 is a great game and much more polished but for real football atmosphere this is unbeatable.
The commentary is great and much improved as it actually relates to what's going on on the pitch whereas
FIFA 08 can talk a load of crap.
If on PES 09 they can sort out the licences or have a more extensive edit suite, than I personally can't see how
FIFA 09 can compete. STOP PRESS I have just bought this game on PS2 and it's utterly fantastic! even better than the PS3 version with a much more detailed edit suite and excellent gameplay, so much so, that FIFA 08 has been in the cupboard and not used to get my football "kick". FIFA 08 will be traded in very soon.

This game is very good....I didn't have the pleasure of owning Pro Evo 6 b/cos I had an xbox. The graphics isn't the best but the game play and skill level more than makes up for it.


The reason why I'm not giving this game 5 star has to be the online gaming.....I think I speak for everyone who is about to pull the trigger to SCORE that is very annoying and irritating when your about to shoot in or around the box and it freezes for about a sec or two and before you can react to what just happen the ball is going the opposite way.


That really spoils your flo and this is down to two things
1. Your opponent having a slower connection (Coz I know for a fact my connection is fast)


2. Your opponent having some super sonic speed of light connection that shouldn't even be legal.

That said still a good game.
