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.
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!
Excerpt: "PES 2008 was a game which was bundled with my PSP Slim & Lite, which I have only recently purchased. This obviously means that being the only PSP game I own at the moment, I've played it quite a bit! For me, PES 2008 assured be of my biggest fear with the PSP in general - could you really get into the games as much as on a PC or other console? The answer is defiantly yes! I own PES 2008 on PC also, and despite the obvious lower graphics, lack ...
Pros: Great immersive game play, lots of modes to explore .
Cons: Lack of online play, lack of commentary, graphics could be improved .
Excerpt: Pro evolution soccer 2008 comes from a series of games that has been around for many years. It is produced by konami and is actually the first game to include the date in the title. The gameplay is very different from fifa and has many other different options. I bought it recently and have been addicted to it ever since.
Summary: Ok no stadium choice and no commentary (apart from the few words spoken when a goal is scored)...i really don't see the problem there. The gameplay is improved for sure and it is now actually possible to score from a free kick!...however the dept at Konami in charge of making sure the players look like the stars they are supposed to be must have gone on holiday when this game was in the works....in the last PES player likeness was superb, now its rubbish..
Summary: I have Fifa 07 on the PSP and like it, I have been looking forward to PES 2008 on the PSP as it is a more in depth game but does not have the glitz of Fifa. The games are quite different, Fifa is pick up and play, PES 2008 is not. I have had this for a couple of weeks now and tend to play it when I'm travelling and still to be honest find it difficult to score, which is part of the fun, when I do score especially from a header I thought it was amazing purely due to the...
