Just the same game from last year

Summary: I was very disappointed to see that PES 2008 is basically the same game from last year. Even some portions are worse when it comes to gameplay. First off the ball is extremely bouncy. It is bouncing off almost everytime in one on one tackles. Secondly, it has become extremely impossible to score, even at Regular(mid) level. As far as the improvements, there are a couple of additional team licences, some players got facelifts and that's all.
Summary: Last year's WE-PES2007 received great reviews for the PSP platform. PES2008 has good reviews too, but they usually don't recommend it as an upgrade. I think PES2008 contains some important improvements, so I'll just list the differences and I'll let you be the judge of whether it's worth upgrading or not. Neutral: Player models/animations are unchanged. Same stadium as before, no extra stadiums.
Summary: The game in general is very good. Some bad issues are. Long loading times, (Long is 15-20 seg), Only one stadium. No players entrance scene, No real team names for some teams, No online option and No audio commentarist, that is boring. But the GOOD and most important is the play mode is very, very, very real. The bounce of the ball and the player's movement are awesome.
Conclusion: This game is good and the front cover looks sick because it has Christiano Ronaldo and Michael owen picture on the front cover this year also they are makeing new commentators like Spain they will have julio maldonado and juan carlos rivero and france they will have christian jeanpierre and laurent paganelli and this will be the best Pro Evoulution Soccer game ever
Conclusion: After being a fan of the Pro Evo series and have had all versions on PSP, this is the best one so far. The graphics are good and the gameplay is brilliant and is a thoroughly enjoyable game to play. I also bought the option file that had all the correct kits and team names on and recommend buying that as it enhances gameplay further.
Conclusion: This is a good game. Comparing it with fifa and the features for PSP are a lot better. However some features of the game are far too confusing such as just picking a team and a formation and buying players. As purely just about playing football it is not quite as good as FIFA however they are both about the same. And the added features makes it easiily as good as FIFA.
