Winning Eleven Pro Evolution Soccer 2007
18 June 2008
Excerpt: Pro Evolution Soccer 2007 brings soccer to the handheld circuit. The game offers a variety of modes, including Match, Master League, League, Cup, Training, and a Wireless mode as well. Match allows you to quickly start a match, or do a penalty shootout. Master League allows you to manage your own team, make trades, set up formations, all sorts of good stuff.
Excerpt: Let's just set this out on the table right away: If you're looking for realism, you have found your perfect match. Winning Eleven Pro Evolution Soccer 2007 is like a Wikipedia entry for the game of soccer. You can browse from a huge variety of custom options and a great many of them involve changing the look and feel of your game. Personally I prefer to just play some good soccer without the rigamarole, but that's just my style.
Conclusion: is a fun game. While the game looks fairly plain, it still has a multitude of gaming options and the controls handle really well. However, the game could have benefited from a stronger multi-player mode--infrastructure wireless for head-to-head gaming over the Internet and an actual play-by-play commentary of the action. In the end, soccer fans will appreciate this game.
Excerpt: GOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAL! The screaming broadcasters, the raucous and often violent crowd, the riots before, during and after the game. No, this is definitely not America. This is soccer season in Europe. Nationalistic pride and rivalry can sometimes lead to overzealous fans creating an environment that quite frankly puzzles many Americans.

Winning Eleven: Pro Evolution Soccer 2007 review (PSP)
9 March 2007
Excerpt: There were several occasions where I would shoot the ball, it would smack the goalie right in the head, launch into the air for several seconds, then—finally—he would stick his hands up, in some feeble attempt to block my shot, which he already did with his face
Excerpt: While Pro Evolution Soccer is generally known for its realism and attention to detail on the pitch, Konami's first foray for this franchise into the Nintendo DS market has different priorities. These priorities include the need to create a game that not only works within the technical limitations of the DS but also takes advantage of the platform's unique features.
Pros: Accessible gameplay, works well in short bursts, nice multiplayer options, including Wi-Fi
Cons: Simplistic controls, artificial intelligence shows a number of weaknesses, lacks depth in single-player game
Excerpt: Konami's World Soccer Winning Eleven Nine is one of those long-standing genre leaders: Any fan of the videogame "footie," or soccer as we call it in the US, knows that the Winning Eleven series is one of the best titles out there. The new PSP version of Winning Eleven Nine offers just about everything you'd expect, which means that if you're in the market for a soccer title, you can now get your fix with your fave series. Matt James has the review here.
Pros: ups: Intuitive controls, excellent training modes.
Cons: downs: No Master League, no infrastructure support.
Excerpt: Winning Eleven has always had a deep feature list, so it's disappointing to see a few key omissions here. Available options include quick start match, League, training, and ad-hoc play. The game's training mode, which is quite robust on the PS2, taking you from the extreme basics of soccer to more advanced techniques, is now nothing more than a chance to kick the ball around in an unstructured practice mode.
Conclusion: Winning Eleven 9 managed to include enough upgrades to triumph over last year's excellent version. The main bonus to picking up number nine is to go online, talk smack, and take on people across the continent. Not going online? Well then I'd say you could get by with Winning Eleven 8 until they announce a next-gen version. You really can't go wrong with Winning Eleven 9 it's the king of soccer games, and another smashing success for Konami.
