Pro Evolution Soccer Management PS2 Review

Console Obsession
31 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Most football management sims leave a lot to the imagination. You pick the teams, adjust training schedules, and scour the transfer market for new talent, all the time convinced that complete world domination is just one small tactical tweak away. But when it comes to actually watching the games, you’re lucky to get a 2D pitch with a load of wobbly coloured dots. Pro Evolution Soccer Management is very different.

  • Excerpt: They had to, didn’t they’ One of Konami’s Japanese developers has an idea that a management game based on the Winning Eleven engine, in the same style, would be a grand idea and make the company millions. Shingo ‘Seabass’ Takatsuka ‘ the brains behind the series ‘ doesn’t have time to oversee it, since he’s working on the next version of the main game. So, Akiyoshi Chosokabe (who worked on previous versions of the game) is handed the task. And so it begins.

Pro Evolution Soccer Management Review

GameSpot
5 May 2006
  • Excerpt: Konami's Pro Evolution Soccer series has garnered the approval of hardcore football fans and devout gamers alike. The fifth game was arguably the most realistic video game translation of "the beautiful game" to date, rewarding strategic management off the pitch and realistic build-up play on the pitch, all while being eminently playable. A full-on management sim seems like a natural evolution for the series.
  • Pros: User-friendly with tips and the option to defer certain jobs to your staff, data can be transferred to and from Pro Evolution Soccer 5, games played out in real time through the Pro Evolution Soccer match engine
  • Cons: Clunky front end, lacks official team data for the most part, translation errors, trivial details such as female assistant selection, watching matches soon becomes a chore

  • Conclusion: Thankfully, there are one or two refreshing touches in Pro Evolution Soccer Management—though their brightness is also somewhat dulled by flawed delivery. They include the opportunity to attend Training Ground press conferences and interviews, where fielding ‘probing’ questions concerning performance becomes the order of the day.
  • Pros: The Pro Evolution Soccer 5 match engine
  • Cons: Dull and repetitive scheduling format, Reduced sensation of actually having managerial control, Limited licensing hurts authenticity, Team rosters are not up to date, Shallow and largely devoid of entertainment value

  • Conclusion: PES Management utilise honteusement sa façade pour se vendre, et n’offre au final qu’un contenu bien trop restreint pour accrocher ceux qui ont déjà tâté du Football Manager , dommage. Konami a réussi à faire un jeu entier de gestion moins complet qu’un simple mode Carrière de FIFA 06 . Retenez la leçon, messieurs.
  • Pros: Quelques features bien pensées, La durée de vie honorable
  • Cons: On ne joue pas son équipe !, L'abus de la licence PES, Encore très peu de licences de clubs et de joueurs !, Du management trop basique, Lassant

Aurora Watching

  • Summary: Mit "Aurora Watching" ist den Entwicklern von "Metropolis Software" ein interessanter Genremix gelungen. Das Spiel verbindet die Elemente Schleich- und Actionshooter glaubhaft und dennoch abwechslungsreich. Besonders gut gelungen ist daneben die Atmosphäre des arktischen Handlungsortes und die hervorragende KI der Computergegner.

Pro Evolution Soccer Management

Level 7
14 March 2007
  • Conclusion: Det ser helt okej ut, och matchmotorn är välbekant för den PES-bevandrade spelaren. Inget att varken hurra eller bua för Efter de inledande matcherna tappar nyheten snabbt sitt behag. Det är svårt att engagera sig i sitt lag och hitta motivation till att finlira med de taktiska alternativen. Spelar man PES Management regelbundet under en längre period torde det vara av ren envishet när de första matcherna väl har avverkats.
  • Pros: Matchmotorn. Inledningsvis i alla fall, Karaktärsskaparläget
  • Cons: Intetsägande, Oengagerande, Brister i AI:ns matchtänk, Menysystemet

  • Summary: Auch wenn das Spiel keineswegs nur schlecht ist, wurde ich das Gefühl nicht los, als wollte Konami das Spiel mehr über den guten Namen als über gutes Gameplay verkaufen. Das Hauptproblem bleibt einfach, dass solche Spiele nicht unbedingt auf eine Konsole gehören. Das Beobachten der Spieler während des Matches ist alles andere als spannend. Und man stellt sich konstant die Frage, ob die eigens konfigurierten taktischen Feinheiten überhaupt Einfluss auf das Spiel haben.
