SoulCalibur 2 HD Online review

GamesRadar
21 November 2013
  • Conclusion: SoulCalibur 2 HD Online is everything the original was and more. Stunning full-screen, 1080p visuals and the inclusion of the full-fat single-player mission mode make this an essential download at $19.99/£15.99 (PSN £14.99).
  • Pros: Stupendous animation and art design, Wonderful full-screen, 1080p conversion, Intuitive, deep and intelligent fighting, Full home-console standard mission mode
  • Cons: A couple of dropped frames here and there, No Link and No Wii U version (yet)

Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 PS3 Review

Console Obsession
29 May 2010
  • Excerpt: They say football is a funny old game and when it comes to the battle between Pro Evolution Soccer and FIFA we’d have to agree. To many, FIFA has always been playing catch up to Konami’s much cherished series, although even some of Pro Evo’s biggest fans have admitted that in recent years FIFA has made some very big and positive strides. Anyway we shouldn’t really compare them, so lets just say that we did very much enjoy this years FIFA..

Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 (PS3)

Digital Sportspage
22 May 2009
  • Excerpt: It seems that since the Leipzig Games Convention, Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 (PES 2008) has been the highway car wreck of the sports gaming industry. Over the past few weeks I’ve had the chance to do some rubbernecking of my own and inspect the flaming wreckage of the PS3 version. Is PES 2008 as horrible as some have made it out to be? Read on to find out.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 Review

VideoGamer.com
27 September 2008
  • Excerpt: The bitter battle between fans of the two next generation consoles can at times be a nasty exchange. Supporters of Microsoft's Xbox 360 take great pleasure in pointing out, at every opportunity, the PS3's failings - the lack of exclusive triple-A games, the high price and the late ports. The PS3 camp claims a more powerful console, HD movie playback built in and the ability to fit more on a Blu-ray disc compared with a DVD.

A Huge Disappointment

GIN
9 July 2008
  • Excerpt: Let me start by saying that you will find no bigger soccer fan than I. I live, breathe, and eat the sport. I've missed class on multiple occasions to see Manchester United play, and can rarely go a day without playing a quick match of Pro Evolution Soccer. Pro Evolution Soccer, or PES for short, has been the premier soccer game on the market for years now, progressively taking small steps forward with each new installment.

  • Excerpt: You can take the Winning Eleven Seven out of the Pro Evolution Soccer series' title, but the Pro Evolution... nevermind. It doesn't quite do that either.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2008

Operation Sports
29 February 2008
  • Excerpt: Read the reviews about Winning Eleven games over the past years, and you’ll see a repeated theme, something along the lines of, “Konami has tinkered/slightly upgraded its already great product, leaving the same great gameplay.” Each new incarnation of Konami’s famed football series evokes familiarity yet releases a vague scent of dissimilarity, as if your girlfriend got a 2-inch haircut, or if a classmate switched to dark-rimmed glasses. The same…yet different.
  • Pros: Same great authentic gameplay, TeamVision AI feature ramps up difficulty, Best-looking PES yet
  • Cons: Lack of league and team licenses, Steep learning curve, Not overwhelmingly better than last year
