Summary: What should a game be judged on - GAMEPLAY, GAMEPLAY, GAMEPLAY !!! I have been playing PES since PES 6 (which I think is a great game), but on a whim I decided to fork out a fiver and buy PES 5 - a game I had never played before. I couldn't believe how great it is ! It's better than every other PES since and that includes PES 2013 - the players play and move like real footballers and this is as close to the real thing as you can get without putting you boots on - which...
Summary: Well, looking back, PES 5 hasn't aged that bad. In fact, it still remains , along with FIFA 10, the best football game ever. Why? It's simply the most accurate portrait of the real game. Many people still prefer it's follow-up, PES 6, but this particular edition marked the series' peak. The gameplay slowed down quite a bit comparing to PES 4 and while it took away some of that cool arcade feel it really took realism to a whole new level.
Excerpt: ::~ OVERVIEW ~:: The Pro Evolution 5 for the Playstation 2 is the yearly version of the long-running football game series, this version being released in 2006. The game is essentially an arcade-style sports simulation game, in which you can control your favourite team or national side, or custom build your own side and compete in tournaments, leagues, Cup matches or the custom Master League.
Excerpt: Many describe Pro Evolution Soccer 5 as the ultimate football game and indeed the best pro evolution soccer game. As a big fan of the series this is a fantastic edition and comes close to beating PES 6 to the best pro evo. With unrivaled gameplay this game is very addictive and hours seem to fly by when playing the game. The game provides a constant challenge with the smart AI and it proves to be very difficult to take it around players even with a world class player.
Excerpt: It's easily between this and Pro Evolution Soccer 6 for the greatest football game of all-time for me, both of them ate equally addictive and have a good choice when it comes to what you want to do. Once again I'll have to say the best mode is Master League, the most addictive part of a game I have ever played, I think I did a whole season in 1 day when I was injured, didn't budge from my bed.
Summary: I have played all pro evo games since iss pro evo 98 on ps1 and have to say that in my opinion pro evo 5 is the closest to the beautiful game than any other.Unfortunately after this the franchise has reduced in quality with more jerky players and poor AI. I still play pro evo 5 everyday and am still finding new things in the game after 3 years !!!!
Excerpt: Ok you can call me sad all you like, but this is THE football game. and if you still enjoy the 'apparent' football game FIFA, once you play this there's no going back. i got this game a good 3 years ago, and i'm still playing it- every year when i see the new football games come out i do look and consider them, until i play this again, and then realise just how much i would miss it if i were to replace it.
