Summary: I had a scratched copy of this edition of PES so I had to get my hands on it again. I'm sure most of you know that in 2000-07 PES owned FIFA by a wide margin. I have so many cool memories with this game and every now and then I play it against my older friends that never liked what happened to the newer PES and FIFA's. Enjoy!
Summary: \Konami excels (again) with Winning Eleven 9 and its slightly improved graphics (PS2 got to its limits, we can't ask for more. But PS3 is coming!), awesome controls and big variety of moves. Now we all know which the big problem with Winning Eleven is; the lack of licenses that don't allow them to have the name of certain players and teams. Unfortunately EA makes so much money from the Madden and NBA Live series that it makes them have the main contracts with FIFA.
Summary: this is a must get. i'm sure you've heard all about it online. been playing it for almost a year now (japanese version), and i'm still hooked to it. i'm not gonna bored you with all the details of the game, but i can say that at first it'll feel totally different from WE8. you may not score many goals in the beginning, but just be patient. it'll take you a while to get use to the controls. the gameplay is SMOOOOOOOOOOOOTH, even with all the players on your screen.
Summary: [...] This game is in no way "only accessable to hardcore footie fans." Anyone who finds matches to be too easy can simply change the difficulty setting before playing a match/starting a season, etc. I turned the difficulty to the lowest setting (one star), and tore through games (with 90 minutes elapsed down to 15), scoring a hat trick with at least two players (that's at least six goals for... well, people who have no idea what I'm talking about.
Summary: Autumn is upon us and with it comes a few guarantees. The nights are becoming darker and colder; leaves are changing colour, falling from trees and clogging up gutters across the land and shops are starting to play Xmas songs on loop. But its not all doom and gloom cause autumn also means its time for the release of the next edition of Pro Evo!
Summary: Quite possibly the greatest game ever created. Period. Yes, the game lacks some licenses and has some ficticious names in place....not a problem. Do a google search. There are option files available where groups of players (mostly in Europe, Mexico, and South America) have created option files that have all the current uniforms, flags, badges, stats, names...etc....I just downloaded the "watson world cup option file" and it is brilliant.
