No online...can you believe!!?

Iris Vaz Vidal, Amazon
18 June 2008
  • Summary: I'm a big fan of PES 2008 since PS1. The gameplay it's fantastic, like always...but it has no online game (too much lag!!), wich it's a huge damage for Konami!! What can I say...a PS3 soccer game with no online!? Let's hope that the PES 2009 change that situation. Overall, for big fans, you just can't live without it...

Not better than the previous PES title

Marcelo, Amazon
18 April 2008
  • Summary: If you are used to PES 2007 or WE 10, you'll be a little disappointed. Gameplay is a lot more realistic, but slower. The game became a lot harder than the previous versions. You must choose a team a lot superior than the other in order to perform some of the plays that you could before. The graphics could be a lot better, it does not unleash the true potential of the console, and the playability isn't that amusing as the previous versions. Yet, it's still a lot of fun.

Greater Improvments Than Expected (Gameplay wise)

Counterbeat , GameStop
3 April 2008
  • Summary: New Winning Eleven games are generally hated for a couple of weeks than heaped with adoration. This game is no different. Ok off the start the graphics are still WEish, there are many unliicensed teams and there is lag during replays (I've experience no lag in gameplay offline) At first I found the increased speed unsettling and disapointing, but as I've played I've realized that it forces you to me to make quicker decisions and that an aspect of this is that the...

A good Winning Eleven game overall

Dave, Amazon
18 March 2008
  • Summary: It is certainly not perfect, and my expectations were a bit higher for the PS3 version. However, I will say it is still a good game for previous Winning Eleven (now PES 08) fans. The gap between FIFA and Winning Eleven is clearly narrowing, but I still give Winning Eleven the edge for sheer gameplay. One annoying thing is that replays suffer tremendously from slowdown. If you are the type to get bothered or angered by this, then don't bother with this game.

It's about gameplay

Forza Catracha, Amazon
16 March 2008
  • Summary: This game as all the Pro Evolution Soccer series, formerly known as Winning Eleven, is about enjoying the game of soccer as closely as the real game. When you score you really fight for it and it's not about doing the same play over and over to score multiple times you might try the same play and results won't be always the same.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2008

  • Conclusion: The best, if flawed, footy game out there. If you've played previous Pro Evo games you know how good it is so I'll just have a moan about the probs instead of listing it's good points. Slow down does happen, sorry but it's true, can be a pain when you get a load of players in the box and replays suck due to it. Why include diving when you get booked every bloody time??

Worth Buying

  • Conclusion: I have read the reviews on this game and was not going to buy it,but, I got a pre-owned copy and have never looked back. I would have given it 5 stars if the edit function had been better as it's fairly limited,however, that does'nt seem to matter when you actually play the game as it's the closest to real football you can get. FIFA 08 is a great game and much more polished but for real football atmosphere this is unbeatable.

Toller Arcardefußball

Yopi
4 August 2013
  • Summary: Hallo zusammen, 6 Jahre ist es mittlerweile her, da war Pro Evolution Soccer kurz PES noch mein Favorit in Sachen Konsolenfußball, vor Fifa. Denn auch wenn Pro Evolution Soccer keine Lizenz für die Bundesliga hatte und auch immernoch nicht hat, war das Fußball den ich zu diesem Zeitpunkt haben wollte. Nichts mit großer Simulation, sondern echten Arcarde Fußball mit richtigem Powerplay etc. Das bietet PES 2008 definitiv.
