Pro Evolution Soccer 5 User Reviews
Everything, you can even score those 30-40 yard screamers you've always dreamed of scoring, that's if you're good enough.The bad:
Stupid hand ball decisionsSummary:
If you love football, you'll love this. Of course not all the major teams are officially represented but PES and Konami are trying to get this changed for PES6. What makes this game great is the fact that fans of the smaller premiership teams can play as their team or they can play as a huge Italian team, AC or Inter and the list goes on. You can lift the world cup with the country of your choice, preferably England. And if you can do this on 5* it doesn't mean you're a bad person, but if you can do it on 6* it means you've beaten the best in the world playing at their best, even some of th...
Great gameplay (Passes feel realistic, improved goal engine etc.)
Fantastic player animation (Players run and shoot like in real life, different varieties of dribbling, free kicks, penalties, drop kicks etc.)
More club teams (Shakater Donetsk, Sao Paolo, Fenerbache have come back)
New international team (You can now be the Ivory Coast)
Option to edit boots
More options in PES Shop i.e. more players to buy etc.
Arsenal, Celtic, Chelsea, Rangers and FC Kopenhagen are licensed
Still a lack of licensing
Inaccurate names for some international teams and club teams
Wrong kits for many teams
Poor quality of research for teams in the French League, English and various other teams
The disappearing crowd.
I've been playing PES for years so obviously I was eagerly anticipating the release of this game. I was hoping that they had sorted out all the problems from the last couple of games. I had slight fears that it might fall into the FIFA style gaming system. Was I going to be playing this game all the time or leaving it to the dust? I can tell you now, my fears were destroyed.
The gameplay is still fantastic as it used to be, if not better. It's lost it's "arcadey" feel and gone to a more hands-on approach. Passes are more accurate, the dribbling has improved and the player almost has a reali...
+ Great Gameplay
+ Much More detail to Players faces
+ Great editing mode
+ Master League is better than ever
- Not very good liscensing
- A Lot of effort is needed to get the game spot on with liscensing etc.
Pro Evolution Soccer. One of the best football GAmes alive. Unbeatable. Wipes the floor with FIFA. This year is has got one hell of a lot better. With more options than ever.
Konami have now focused on detail. The players are so realistic that many hardly need to be touched. And Now Konami have got so many more official sponsors etc. Now with many Addidas Boots like the F50+ it is becoming an excellent game.
Other extras are Edit Mode. This means edit anything you choose. From Players to Teams. Stadiums to Leage Names Its all here. You can now even put yourself into the game and look very lif...
Graphics - 9.5/10 - Nigh on perfect, all the top stars look so realistic, it is unbelievable, from Ronaldinho's unmistakable teeth, to the stubble on Del Piero's face - it is all fantastic. The only problem, is really the slight lack of detail Konami have focused on the not so known players...
Gameplay - 10/10 - Absolutely exceptional, despite slowing the pace of the game down from PES4, it still keeps the quintessential fluidity, to produce mouth-watering goals. Nearly every aspect of gameplay has been improved from PES4 in my opinion, the passing is now less 'automatic', and instead you have to pick out team-mates to pass to, which inevitably brings an array of interceptions, whilst tackling is given a new leash of life. Now you have to time your tackles to perfection, or you risk giving away needless free-kicks, this may become irritating, but simply adds to the beauty of which PES5 accustoms to. The repetition of shooting has now departed, with literally thousands of different ways to score. Plus the variety of subtle little tricks to pull off, will leave you in amazement...
Game Modes - 9.5/10 - The usual PES ritual of Master League is better than ever, with stacks of options available, and with the detailed development graphs showing you how well your players have become, among others. The cups are still a little bare, whilst the league's offer a great challenge, but can quickly become tedious...
A few glitches including 'empty crowd syndrome' - but nothing too serious...Summary:
This version of Pro Evolution Soccer, is not just a yearly update, which 'rival' Fifa usually succumbs to, it is a world away from the brilliant PES4. Simply brilliant in every department, this is a game YOU NEED to own.
Where should I start? The most obvious thing is the graphics. The detail on PES4 was truly awesome, but this just takes it a step further with better cutscenes, improved animation and even more life-like faces to add to the vast quantities already in the old game. The gameplay itself has been enhanced, with more moves (such as Ronaldinho's flip-flap and Cristiano Ronaldo style drag-backs and dummies) and an even slicker passing system and AI. The gameplay is so immersive and intense that you could literally lose months of your life to this game. The sense of satisfaction you get when you score your first freekick, or when you finally score against a tough opponent after coming tantalisingly close for the entire game is unrivalled by any other game, let alone any other football game. The game is challenging and incredibly deep, with online mode expanding this still further. The Master League has been improved, and the cups and leagues from PES4 are all still there. The fact that it doesn't have 100% licensing means that there is a fantastic edit mode within the game that is a great feature in itself, and, in my opinion, is better to have than fully licensed teams. Also, there are plenty of option files to download off the internet if you cannot be bothered to edit yourself.The bad:
The game is essentially just an update of PES4, though it has enough new content to keep fans of the series happy. I would have liked a few more new features, though, and the difficulty to be increased (though admittedly it is well balanced with the difficulty levels it does have). Also, the commentary is a little annoying, due to phrases such as "well won by the big man!" when you win a header in the opponents box, no matter how short your player is.Summary:
This game's main rival in the football (soccer) simulation genre is FIFA2006, and to say it beats that hands-down is the understatement of the century. This game is superior in every way to EA's footie game, so if it is a choice between this and FIFA, buy PES5 every time.
*The ability to be led to believe in offside goals.
*Gameplay is fast and furious.
*Great new revamped Master Leauge.
*Great kit editors to use with a ton more of easy to use options.
*Fully licensed Chelsea and Arsenal teams as well as fully licensed Italian and Spanish teams.
*Not enough English licenses.
*Still not the best AI referees.
*Need more international teams to use.
This a great new version of the Pro Evo series coming back with some great new updates especially when it comes to the graphics and attention to detail like goal celebrations. The Gameplay is alot more smooth and the new revamped Master Leauge is great for improving new players skills and building a winning team. The create -a- player system is excellent with lots of different options to choose from and the new play on advantage system makes the gameplay so much more realistic. Also Chelsea and Arsenal have been added with full licensed kits, stadiums and names. Unfortunatly the rest of the...
