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..
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
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 is certainly another improvement over PES6, and Konami has listened to the hoards of obsessive fans on the internet to fix up issues. Unfortunately online play is (so far) a disaster and minus a point from the overall score for the football game that managed to bamboozle the PS3 cell processor.
Excerpt: Tegenwoordig is het op elk vlak wel weer ‘n strijd. NHL, NBA en FIFA, enkele voorbeelden van sporten waarbij 2 partijen het voornamelijk tegen elkaar opnemen om de beste te zijn elk jaar. Uiteraard gaat deze vlieger niet bij elke sportgame op, denk aan Tiger Woods of Formula One voor de PS3, maar bij de game waar we het nu over gaan hebben blijkt de concurrentie dit jaar van een wel heel hoog niveau te zijn.
