Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 Review
5 August 2008
Excerpt: PES on Wii plays unlike any football video game ever. It's so unfamiliar and bizarre you'll almost want to turn it off and immediately slap the Xbox 360 or PS3 version on instead. The funny thing is, after a while you do get used to the crazy controls, and, once you do, Wii PES starts to feel, well,...
Conclusion: Unfortunately, I'm a gamer on a budget. I can't afford to buy that many games this year, so I tend to buy multiplayer games new (because they last longer) and single- player-only games later, when they have dropped down in price and become a Greatest Hit.
Summary: If you're looking for a fun soccer game, and all you have is a Wii, Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 is the way to go. With precise playmaker controls that allow you to control everyone, you really have a lot of power over what goes on. It truly is a soccer RTS game.
Summary: While Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 was a disappointment on nearly every other platform, the Wii version offers a genuinely new take on the series. Developed by a completely different team within Konami, Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 takes the game's solid heritage and adds a control system specifically...
Pros: Novel control system that works well, Same great Pro Evolution Soccer game engine, Online mode is fast and lag-free
Cons: Difficult to control in defence, Not enough game modes, Lack of official teams
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 is certainly another improvement over PES6, and Konami has listened to the hoards of obsessive fans on the internet to fix up issues. Unfortunately online play is (so far) a disaster and minus a point from the overall score for the football game that managed to...
Conclusion: While the game play isn’t anything new (well what can be made new in football?) the controls are unrivaled in their brilliance and i hope will become a mainstay for this series and several others.
Pros: Controls are perfect, Large amount of modes, Jump-in style game play, Online mode and features work well
Cons: More team customisation would of been nice, Graphics are a little on the poor side, More Mii features please!
