This game is quite frankly an insult to PES fans, its a spit in the face to all those people who have put up with buggy unfinished games such as PES5 and PES6. This spit in the face has an additional kick in the family jewels for anyone buying this game for the PS2. You pay more for the PS2 version than you do for the PC version, yet they have taken many features out of the PS2 version. You may have heard of the great new diving system, or shirt pulling, but if you own the PS2 version you won't be seeing them.
Lets see if I can list the new features...
Intelligent AI (they know how to move out of the way so you can run the length of the pitch and score...on Top Player)
Better goalkeepers (with poor reaction times and positioning, that enable you to score from the half way line almost every time you counter attack...on Top Player)
Player Animations (the ball goes through the goal keepers chest, arms and legs pass through each other, players limbs can bend over their backs to volley the ball, feet dissapear into the ground, and players still run through the goal posts)
No kit selection in ML games (meaning you play in a black strip against a team in an almost identicle kit, which means you must rely on the radar to identify your team mates)
Improved Training (you can now save the game on the last week of negotiations and train your players over and over and over, until they have perfect stats, all you need to do is save and reload each time)
New Editing system for kits (which means unless you know how to use photoshop, and get those files to your console, you will only be able to have about 12 combinations of kit, so your team is bound to look just like your mates)
You know what, I could go on and on all day about how awful PES2008 is, but the alternative is worse. Its still better than the latest FIFA, but thats not saying much. We need KONAMI to sack the guy in charge of PES, the game is being ruined and fans are losing faith.
To sum it up, save your money, keep playing PES3 or PES4, because since PES3 it has all gone down hill.
