As usual i have been reading viewer reviews of this game and can i say one thing, If your going to review this game, please give reasons behind any negativity as this will back up your review.
First off lets get the 'slowdown' issue out of the way as this has been highlighted in many press reviews. The slowdown does not effect the game in any way as it is minimal to non-existent whilst playing in match, yes the replay's judder along but if you let this effect your choice whether to purchase or not your missing out a classic.
As with all Pro Evo's you need to spend some time getting used to the new moves etc but once you do your in for a treat. The football is fun with the ball moving in a very realistic manner taking wicked deflections, knocking players over. Defenders now throw themselves in front of your shots making it more challenging but more realistic. I won't explain everything as finding out for yourselves is what Pro Evo is about and that is exactly what it's about, finding your own style and way to win games. What Pro Evo does is force you to change the way you play depending on the circumstances of the game with teams sitting back when their one nil up making it hard for you to score and this is where Pro Evo is miles ahead, the achievement of getting that equalizer when everyone is behind the ball is far greater than anything in other football games. The graphics are not as good as it's nearest rival, neither is the sound or presentation come to think of it but where it matters most Pro Evo rises above the rest to engage you in it's compelling game play. If you want a football game for graphics and sound look elsewhere but if your looking for a football game that actually recreates football's excitement and frustration and great controls to boot you should have already added this game to your basket.
I felt i needed to write this review to balance out the negative reviews which seem shallow and without substance and therefore do not offer any help to people looking to purchase the game. I only give this game 4 out of 5 due to the fact there is slowdown in the replays and on next gen consoles this should not happen, i repeat however it does not effect the actual game.
