Better than WE2007

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 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.
Although there is a newer edition out, PES 2008 on the PSP is a top game for all footie fans. 9/10,

Excerpt: I have been a Pro Evolution Soccer fan since purchasing PES 5 on the PSP and then the PS2, and compared to the previous titles, PES 5 and PES 6, this is a big improvement in game-play. PES 2008 includes a new 'Teamvision' system which Konami claim learns and adapts to our playing style, making matches less predictable and more competitive.
Excerpt: Pro evolution soccer is a long standing franchise in football video games. It has been around for years but I had usually favoured Fifa for the mot part in earlier years due to the official licensing and having all the offical teams, logos, kits, player names, stadiums etc. Pro evolution has though caught up with this with mostly real player names able to be used.
Summary: This game retains most of the fun and the features of the PS2 version. Some bits are missing, like the commentary but so what. Really good fun and addictive. The fewer buttons actually make it more fun!
