Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 PSP Review
3 June 2010
Excerpt: Those who weren’t too fond of the latest Pro Evolution Soccer game on the PS3 and 360 needn’t worry about this PSP version, as it’s similarities are actually closer to that of the PSP version. Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 on the PSP is an impressive port, it may not have the graphical polish or as slick controls as the console versions, but it’s mightily impressive to be released with most of the features that were featured in the PS2 version (including the rather clever...

Pros: Exactly the same content as console versions, Hugely detailed master league, Smooth gameplay
Cons: -, the same content as console versions, No online multiplayer, Average graphics
Excerpt: Disappointment coursed through the minds of most gamers on the release of PES 2008 for PS3, which turned out to be highly average and nowhere near the quality fans had been expecting; would its younger sibling on PSP fare better?
