Summary: I don't know what half of you "wankers" are talking about. Sure the physics engine and ball play might be "realistic" but I would rather not sacrifice enjoyment for such "realism". Honestly, it seems like the game is working against the human player rather than creating a fun and engaging experience for him.
Summary: I'm using for about 3 weeks, and it's a really good game, buy it. However it could be much better if it offered more international teams, like Ghana, and the possibility to lengthen 2 players match times. It should also offer flexible tournment setting for 2 players to save on the memory card. I don't think any game offers these desired features so go for this. Graphics are clear(could be better) and commentary is available in many languages.
Summary: Being a fan of Winning Eleven for more than 6 years, I am actually disappointed in the changes that the producers made. First, the refereing system is very bad. After some time I got scared of even touching the opposing players. Second, the added difficulty, which I welcome, has come at the expense of realism. The AI of your own teammates seems to be much lower than the AI of the computer teams.
Summary: The game is fun only when you play exhibition mode. The actual game is way too hard unless you are super experienced in this type of game. I am not so I have a REALLY hard time beating the easiest teams. You can try to score up to 50 times before actually getting it in the goal. If you buy this game you may also have alot of frustrating moments. for example: I was using Argentina and I was going against South Korea.
Summary: Instead of opting for a arcade feel, this time konami decided to make it more realistic. This is a huge mistake, and hopefully konami will not continue this trend. While i have to admit that this is the most realistic soccer game, it is also in my humble opinion the worst winning eleven games. What made other game in the past fun was perfect passing and easier goal, unfortunaely this game is quite just the opposite. It so real, it not fun.
Miles better than FIFA but not as good as last one

Summary: First off ive only played the PAL version (Pro evoloution soccer 5) but its virtuall the same game. I totally agree with the "Fatman", if you play on levels three ot higher the compute cheats all the time. i.e if Thierry Henry is sprinting down the left wing and the computer is playing as a fairly average Premiership team (like Villa) every defender will catch him even when they are 4-5 yard behind.
