Key to PES 2008 is a proprietary adaptive A.I. system entitled Teamvision - an advanced A.I. programming that learns and adapts according to an individual's style of play. Teamvision will build attacks and counter specific movements such as previous attacks or defensive errors, ensuring games are more in line with the real thing. Set-pieces have been improved with the addition of a number of new options, including full control over the number of players and the position of the defensive wall.

With the Pro Evolution Soccer series renowned for its fluid, realistic gameplay, PES 2008 builds on the implementation of Teamvision with additional key advances The new A.I. ensures that defenders work to close down space and block efforts on goal, with shot timing still left entirely down to the player. Close control has also been enhanced when dribbling the ball, and a number of subtle moves added to bypass defenders and move the ball into space.

Player detail has been taken to incredible levels in the next-gen versions with full facial animation and the high-definition detail afforded by the hardware used to show full movement and subtle details.
  • All New 'Teamvision' A.I. (Artificial Intelligence) System
  • Improved A.I. for Defenders and Attackers
  • Enhanced Close Control system enabling more control of the ball when dribbling
  • Improved Set Pieces - players now have full control over the defensive wall
  • Increased Player detail with full facial animation
  • Extensive Edit mode including players, kits, badges and stadium names
  • Brand new commentary by John Champion and Mark Lawrenson

 Very Poor......what a disappointment!

Well after Pro Evo 6. I thought konami could do no wrong with the next edition, only improve it and further extend the superiority over Fifa.

Somehow though, they have done the opposite with Fifa being as good, if not slightly better now.

The main problems are as follows..

Game Speed - Too fast. Pro Evo 6 was just about right, so why change? I think this ruins the game! Fifa is a bit slow, but more realistic so Pro Evo loses this battle.

GFX - Not good enough, the improvements are visible but only just. Fifa wins this 10 - 0.

AI - A said improvement but all it does is make it more unrealistic. The mixture of increased difficulty in placing passes, combined with AI's ability to place everyone, and the game speed factor = A frustrating and totally fake approach to football games. Pro Evo 7 loses again

Finally the general look of the game is cheap and tacky, compared to fifa. Konami would have earned millions from the last pro evo. Is there evidence that this has gone to improve the next version....No way!

A disgraceful game!

 Put some effort in!

First of all let me say this: I am a complete and utter pro evo worshiper, however, after having waited for ages for this new version, hearing all the hype about how they've been working on a new game engine for years etc etc I was so disappointed when I played the demo on the 360. I really can't tell the difference between PES 2008 and PES 6, they seem like the same game with some minor graphical adjustments and a new title screen. Its as if they are just pumping out the same game year after year now, and don't get me wrong, PES is a great game, however, This year, FIFA is the king. My housemate has got it on the PS3 and it is amazing, you can really see the effort they've put into it, and it really feels like every player is thinking individually. It might be hard to take for all you die hard PES fans (as it was with me!) but this year, trust me - get FIFA instead.

 Not as bad as stated below

After reading the below reviews, I feel the need to set the balance right. Although the reviewers are correct to a certain degree (questionable decisions when challenging for the ball being a good example, however, this was also an issue in PES 6).

what I wanted to add was that the online element to PES is always a bit dicey on the initial release, however, I can now confirm that a patch is now available for online play and this has really sorted out the lag issues.

so give it another go and see what you think now.....

 Prepare yourself for a shock,fifa is better!!

Iknow,it totally amazed me too,but it has to be said,konami have made a major balls up with this one.
Tackling seems to be random,passing is erratic at best,online play is so poor its got to be a bug,and the graphics,please dont tell me there are people out there who think that Michael owen looks like that,and Peter Crouch looks like a bloody hamster(hes not too good in the game either,fnar!!).
Dont get me wrong,there are some improvements over 6,the volleying is easier to achieve,and the stadiums look nice,and also you can now,wait for it...SAVE REPLAYS!!!!
But these improvements are spoiled by other changes to things that werent broken anyway.
So in the end i have to concede,and beleive me this hurts a lot,that FIFA is better(08 that is,07 was poo)
Now.i need a bloody lie down!

 PES 2008 is the best football game released to this date!

What are you talking about, I used to be a fifa boy myself when i was younger and naive! I used to be arrogant and refuse to try the PES games. Finally my brother made my buy PES 5 and i was impressed with the overall gameplay, and freedom of movement from the players! It also came to my notice that the Fifa games are becoming increasingly easier as the years go by, for example you could lob the goal keeper nearly every time from the half way line in the last one. I have downloaded and played the demos for FIFA 08 and PES 2008! I have to say that FIFA have impressed me this year with a much improved game, and the "be a pro" mode is a brilliant concept taken from Ea's American football game. However i find the movement and the turning of the players in FIFA 08 is still rather two dimensional, you can either go forward or across the pitch horizontally. Ok i know that is a preety extreme way of explaining it, but im sure you get what im saying. With PES it is easier to turn and the movement of the players are much less resticted which makes you as a player feel much less restricted about how you play the game! The game might still be based on the same engine that was used for the ps2 but didn't that provide the game we all loved playing, especially multiplayer! The graphics are a lot better and the new Ai system makes the game harder and more challenging to play! For instance a lot of players will develop a tchnique that will allow them to beat the console again and again and again! The new Ai system will stop this happening because the console learns how you play and adapts it's own style to match yours, this should make the game more realistic and challenging, where as im afraid FIFA will still have that element of ease! Therefore my recommendation has to go hands down to PES 2008, but i have to say if you decide to purchase FIFA 08 you will still have yourself an entertaining game!
