I have had no problems with this game, as described by the people below me. The replays are fluid and there is no lag whatsoever. I did install the patch though before i played it so perhaps their problems were before this.
I havent been able to play online yet, as it is currently down. So i cant really review that part of the game.
The offline game is a feast of enjoyment, the players animations have been improved, and the actual style of play feels familiar but with those annual tweaks that we have grown used to.
The graphics have improved significantly since Pro 6, and you really notice the changes in lighting. The graphics are not as good as FIFA however, but that has always been the case.
Just to inform anyone who is put off from buying Pro evo because of the lack of team names and kits. There is a patch/option file that is being finalised by a group of modders that will replace all of them with the correct names/kits etc (one of the main advantages of having a PC instead of a console : ) )
Dont be put off by all the FIFA fanboys or by the fickle so called fans. Every year that a new Pro Evo comes out, you hear a lot of negative comments. This is because Konami like to tweak the gameplay so that things you may have done before, may not work now. This year the emphasis has been put on passing, with the AI punishing players who try to maradona it through the opponents!
£17.99 is also a great price!!
