A Footballing Masterclass

The good:

-Great fast footballing action
-Good graphics
-Wide range of teams an players
-Master League will keep you occupied for hours

The bad:

-Alot of unlicensed teams and players

Summary:

Pro Evolution Soccer 4 is the best footballing game that money can buy. Don't just take my word for it. Even the top game reviewers have said pretty much the same thing. First of all there is Match Mode. This is where you play your friends. I don't know how many fierce encounters I have had with my brother and my friends. When you win, you feel on top of the world but also do not want to celebrate or say anything because you know that the tension between you and your opponent is very high. Losing gives you one of the most angry feelings you can get. The adrenaline rushes through your body a...

The Best Footy Simulator on the Market?

The good:

~Gameplay

~Graphics

~Master League

The bad:

~AI

~Licensing

~Not being able to transfer players in a normal league mode.

Summary:

Well, I started out as a big FIFA fan, but I have just recently bought a copy of PES4 and I have no regrets. The game overall is better than FIFA in many ways, despite not having licenses for all teams and players. Firstly, the gameplay is fantastic. It is very easy to get used to and is far superior to it's closest rivals. After playing FIFA games for over 7 years, I was becoming increasingly annoyed with the slowness of the game and overall, pretty poor gameplay. But when I bought PES for the first time I was pleasantly surprised by the smoothness and good feel to the game. The second thi...

Absolutely Incredible

The good:

This game is certainly the best to have come out of Konami's stores and definitely knocks away the competition (if ever there was any) with ease. The game-play and graphics make this a best seller in there own right but its the addictiveness that has kept me playing it since i got it way back in October last year. The Master Leadue is truly superb with the development system and the easy way to negotiate transfers. I'm currently in my 11th season in the Master League and I'm not gonna give up just yet.

The bad:

Commentary, refs and the lack of licenses are possibly the only bad things about this great game. The lack of licenses isn't that bad with the superb edit mode and the refs can be alright from time to time but the thing that makes the game that tiny bit away from being perfect is Steve Brackley and Trevor Brooking's commentary. The way they are so slow in picking up on things ruins the chances of this game being a complete 5 out of 5.

Summary:

Konami have pretty much hit gold with this little beauty. From the first game to the last each game is brilliant with the slick passing moves to the outstanding goals. The graphics are pretty much unchallenged and on top of that there's a great edit mode. The Master League is all-round fun and challenging and very, very addictive. The main reason is probably the development system and regeneration of retired players. To find a hot, young prospect and then to develop them up to a world class player on a big salary takes patience and a huge risk in terms of league positions but ends up being ...

PES > FIFA?

The good:

+ Great gameplay
+ Great graphics

The bad:

- Licenses

Summary:

So for about 10 years FIFA has been the dominate force in football games. But recently things have changed. And now Pro Evolution Soccer is starting to become the big footie game.

So how come PES is starting to overtake FIFA in being the best football game? The gameplay.

What makes PES stand out from FIFA is the way the beautiful game is played. I like FIFA's gameplay but Pro Evolution Soccer 4 really does take gaming to the next level with it's gaming. I see the difference in gameplay like this. FIFA is more of a grid, like a game of chess. You move from one place to the next. While PES is o...

Konami Are Almost There!!

The good:

The gameplay and graphics are awesome!

The bad:

There are still a few mistakes that need to be patched up if this game is to reach its full potential on the PS2.

Summary:

This is one of my favourite games. It is absolutely brilliant. The gameplay has been improved vastly to that of PES3. The graphics have also been improved. Sometimes you don't need to have the players name at the bottom of the screen because the faces are so realistic you just know who they are. There are still very notable mistakes in the game though. Ref normally takes the side of the CPU, thus, you getting less free kicks and pens and conceding more. Sometimes the ball can go 'through' a players body. There are a few more but they happen rarely. Konami are almost there. If they can smoot...

PES4

The good:

Improved Gameplay, More liscenses teams, Improved keeper ability

The bad:

Edit mode has become worse, Free Kicks are virtually impossible, so slow!

Summary:

It is an improvment on previous games but a dissapointment for those PES Lovers

EDITING

The editing options have gone down, with the increase of teams it seems to have taken a toll on the options. Great options about it include better build face options, more teams to muck about with and you can change players nationalitys (Jason Euell to Jamaica, Kanoute to Mali) however the kit options have gone down (why do we need kits with hearts on?), the players faces (Alan Shearer does not look like that!) and the still no liscensing of English teams (Who are West Midlands Village!?). Editing has been...
