Summary: This is only for the devoted. No doubt the graphics are impressive and the movement realistic but geez man... 0-0 (on a good day) is not my idea of 10 minutes well spent. Also think they should bring out a version where you can take to the linesman with a stick. Offside everytime. If like me you still want to enjoy gaming, best you give this a miss.
Excerpt: "Pro Evolution Soccer is not a game, it's a lifestyle! Having played various versions through all 4 years of university and beyond - i am now one of many whose love of this game borders on the obsessive. It's a game that there is ALWAYS time for. About to go for a night of drinks with friends, but the girls aren't ready yet? Time for a quick game then! Well, you get my drift.... Anyway, i was so excited when i got my PSP and there was no question ...
Summary: Because of the high standards that the Pro Evo franchise has brought to the football genre, I expected a lot from this game but I was sadly disappointed by this PSP version. I also own the PS2 version of this game and I was expecting a streamlined version of that. Unfortunately, not only are the Master League and Cup modes missing from the PSP version but the game play is lacking the bite and the silkiness of its bigger brother.
Summary: Various versions of Pro Evo and ISS Pro before that have been the main games played on my PS and PS2 so after getting a PSP this was always going to be one of 1st games. The game itself is fun if slightly flawed and differs in both the feel of the full PES5 and also the depth of options. Not only is there no Master League but there's not even a cup competition to set up your own mini World Cup with.
Summary: Slightly gutted. I love Pro Evolution on the PS2 and have every version. It is the best footy game, full stop. PSP version however falls short for me. Graphics are great, realism is great but the reason I buy Pro Evo is for those things + the challenge of Master League. There is no Master League. Working your way up from a not-so-good team to the top of the tree takes a long time and is a fantastic challenge.
Summary: i would certainly advise catuion in buying this game, when i first bought i thought it was great superb even! but as time went on the reality was the game can be quite frustrating, i still like the gameplay but tackling is impossible,if you so much as breath on your opponent the ref will blow his whistle also any surging runs into the other half will be delt with easliy by the computer, all they do is stick out a leg and the ball is theirs!!!
Summary: The game has soooo much potential but in reality it delivers so little. The main reason i got the game was because i could play my master league on the move and transfer my data from psp to ps2 as and when i need to. the reality? you cant do any of these things! best bit is i have just ordered winning eleven 9 from america as itsays it has the master league, transfers etc but i fear i have been duped by poor konami marketing again!
Summary: I get the feeling that Konami may have produced this game in a rush, probably to ensure that EA did not get a commercial advantage over them. All the game play is there, but there is no longevity. It is a pity, because with a decent career mode, I would have given this game four or five stars. I also understand that other games such as Madden 06 and Virtua Tennis do have good career structures in them.
