Soul Calibur 2 HD Online Review
3 December 2013
Summary: This is Soul Calibur 2; the graphics are displayed in a higher resolution, and you have a limited capacity to play the game online. The title Soul Calibur 2 HD Online isn’t so much a lie as an unfulfilled promise, but even the lacklustre implementation of web battling can’t change the fact that Soul...
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...
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 looks sharp and plays well on the PC. However, the online mode is buggy and there's little in the way of new features.
20 November 2007
Summary: If you're looking to play this year's Pro Evolution Soccer, you could do worse than check out the PC version. Judged on its own merits, it stacks up well against the console equivalents by looking sharp and playing well, especially if you have a couple of Xbox 360 joypads.
Pros: Some refinement in terms of playability, Opponent artificial intelligence mixes up playing styles, Certain players look realistic, PC version runs well on modest systems
Cons: Adds no new features to last year's game, Still lags online, Poor presentation in every respect, Graphically and aurally subpar
Excerpt: Since the dawn of the PS2, Pro Evolution Soccer has been creeping up the charts, and surpassing even its main rival FIFA, and rightfully so. Its robust mix of ground-breaking game play, awesome modes, and realistic feel made it a firm favourite within everyone's PS2's.
