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.
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.
