PES 2008

Sheku Kanu, Amazon
23 January 2010
  • Summary: I will prefer PES 2009 instead of this disappointing and frustrating PES 2008. It was a mistake to order this product instead of PES 2009. I wish I can exchange it to PES 2009.

Below Expectations

C. E. Valdez, Amazon

  • Summary: I own a PS3 and have both FIFA 2008 and PES 2008. After having played both for a while I find FIFA is better by far. The movement of the players is much realistic in FIFA while it realy bothers me to have to edit the team names and player names in PES to match the real ones. After being a fan of PES/Winning Eleven for several years I am definitely moving to FIFA.

A very poor effort by the pro evo team

  • Excerpt: This version has been a real step back for the series despite being the first on the next gen consoles. There are so many bugs to start off with in the game it is shocking. For a next gen game you certainly expect a real top experience but this game is anything but, the visuls are decent but really not what you would expect from a ps3 game and the whole thing seems to be littered with bugs.

Disappointing

Wils0408n, Dooyoo
20 August 2008
  • Excerpt: At the time when PES 2008 and Fifa 08 had both hit the market I was around 65-25 in FIfa's favour before I had tried either, so I was always going to be a little biased against PES 2008. I can now say after playing both I am an out and out Fifa fan, I even sold PES the day after purchase, here are the reasons why. The menus in the game have a "cheap" feeling about them, whether it is navigating the menus or just the general appearance.

  • Excerpt: PES 2008, Very poor game. Easy game and if you like realism and detail go for fifa 08 due to team names. I would say that pes 2008 is a big let down and i would advise to buy fifa.

Massive let-down

D. Adams, Amazon
21 March 2008
  • Summary: This game is a huge disappointment. Pro Ev has been way better than FIFA for years now, but this game has so many flaws it's untrue. What you've got to love is the consistently awful crossing, bizarre passes when the one you're trying to make would lead to a great chance, players taking a few unnecessary touches before deciding to do what you've asked (by which time you've either been closed down or the pass that was on, now isn't), the lack of options at mid to long...

PRO EVO 2008 DISAPPOINTMENT :(

G Brown, Amazon
3 January 2008
  • Summary: What a Stinker!! Having owned every PES and ISS I was keen to try PES 2008 on my PS3. I was however totally disappointed - just take the ball on a mazy with a good striker e.g. Henry, and more often than not he will get through on goal. Even when tackled with the x button they just seem to shrug off the defender.

Poor Show Konami

Mr. J. W. Lampshire "J.W.Lamps", Amazon
19 November 2007
  • Summary: Like most other comments posted, I also am a big Pro Evo fan, ever since converting from FIFA back in the days when the 1st Konami footy game was released ISS Pro. I have always been excited and subsequently loved all the new releases year after year up until know! Let me clarify, I still love Pro Evo but have been left very dissapointed with the latest version for a number of reasons.

Don't believe the hype. I did, more fool me.

Mr. R. M. Lathwell "holden-c", Amazon
16 November 2007
  • Summary: Having been away from games consoles for years and then recently invested in the PS3 I thought I should look around for a football game. At the time it was a toss up between Fifa '08 and PES '08. I'd known the Fifa games from back in the day but after having read up about the PES series I decided to hang on for that in order to experience the supposedly superior gameplay. Well, was I ever disappointed!

Very dissapointed

Mr. I. Powell "Ian", Amazon
6 November 2007
  • Summary: I was soooo disapointed with this game. It's only the 3rd game I have for PS3 and it's the worst. Since becoming a fan when Pro Evo 4 came out, the series has got better and better. My brother and I are huge fans of the "Memorial Match" mode, where it recorded your scores and stats of games played against each other. We would each create a team in the fantastic "edit" mode and then just go at it for months.
