Summary: I was hoping that the PES 2008 would have maybe corrected some of the issues in Pro Evo 6. Unfortunately the gameplay is exactly the same. The DS cannot handle the game, as it slows down occaisionally which can be frustrating. I still enjoy the game, but just wanted to note that if you already have PES 6, you won't need this game.
Summary: I am not a mad football fan, but sometimes like a bit of a knock around. I thought hard about Fifa or PES - and after much thinking I went for PES. I heard the PES game was more playable - OK Fifa has all the teams and proper licensing, but in the end you want a game that you can play easily. Well this didn't let me down. PES has always been known for playability, and this is also the same.

Summary: For me this game isn't the follow up to previous Pro Evo games on the DS and GBA, this is the follow up to the wonderful Japanese-only Winning Eleven World Advance on the GBA. That game had very fluid gameplay and was very playable and intuitive; it sacrificed graphical impact for playability and was superb. This game does the same and is much better for it.
Summary: I'll start with what is bad about this game. The graphics are weak. It can run slowly in certain areas -- some free kicks and corners. The Konami cup mode could be better. And there are not many club teams. Now for the Good. The game plays like any other PES installment. It is free flowing and realistic. There is no pre-determined way to score. The World Tour mode is great fun. You get to design your own team with an emblem.

Summary: -----Updated review----- 17/2/08 For the past year I've always wanted a decent footie game to take with me on my travels, This year I had the choice between Fifa 2008, Euro 2008 and PES 2008, Surprisingly euro 2008 ISNT going to be on DS s it had to be PES! I am very loyal to PES after owning a PS3 copy of PES 2008, and I have to say the DS version is a refreshing decent change of PES, The ds game play is quite fluid and enjoyable and the graphics arnt half bad, It uses...
