Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 Xbox 360 Review
30 May 2010
Excerpt: They say football is a funny old game and when it comes to the battle between Pro Evolution Soccer and FIFA we’d have to agree. To many, FIFA has always been playing catch up to Konami’s much cherished series, although even some of Pro Evo’s biggest fans have admitted that in recent years FIFA has...
Excerpt: By now you've probably read our PS3 PES 2008 review, in which we slammed the game for its frame rate and slowdown problems. And you've no doubt headed straight to the bottom of this page to see if we've given the Xbox 360 game a higher score. So what do you think? Surprised? Don't be.
Excerpt: Soccer, it’s the sporting equivalent of the metric system, popular everywhere on Earth except here. It’s ironic then that Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 and the english system of measurement both rely on the use of feet.
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...
Summary: I enjoy playing sports titles, but in order to keep my interest over a long period of time they need features.
is a fun game, but it has too many incomplete areas for me to truly enjoy it.
Pros: Easy to pick up, Offline multiplayer tournaments, Master League, Robust editing options
Cons: Lack of German and US National teams, Online mode lacks tournaments, leagues, and everything else outside of ranked/unranked matches, No easy/Terms of Service-legal way to transfer community roster updates, Lack of a true tutorial mode, Horrible music
Excerpt: What does the “beautiful game” mean to you? In my opinion, it’s all about passion for football, support for your team, and the spectacle of twenty-two men playing their hearts out for three points. Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 captures little of this magic.
Summary: UK REVIEW--Konami's Pro Evolution Soccer was already looking a little stretched last year, and the 2008 edition takes the series to the breaking point. Instead of improving on last year's game, it offers no noteworthy new features.
Pros: Some refinement in terms of playability, Opponent artificial intelligence mixes up playing styles, Certain players look realistic
Cons: Adds no new features to last year's game, Still lags online, Poor presentation in every respect
Excerpt: Fifa versus Pro Evolution Soccer, both titles have had their fair share of flack but in recent years, the battle for soccer supremacy in the console world has been heating up and this current incarnation of the series is no exception to the rule.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is The PES series has been around for years now, I being a fan since the Super Nintendo years. A few years ago the game was the best football game around without a question.
