Summary: my friend let me borrow this game a while ago and it was pretty fun. after playing fifa 11, this game seems kinda crappy. PES is really good(the newer ones) and i like them. so if you want to buy PES, get the new ones. Its a good game.
Summary: One thing that I really loved about this game was the graphics. The graphics were in my opinion, some of the best there is. The view is good and so is the narration. I hate it when the narrators get annoying. The gameplay is really fun but hard to learn. The one thing that is bad about this game is the tutorial system. It has one, but it does a poor job teaching you the game. You basically have to play the game and learn it yourself.
Still solid but at the same time still the same issues

Summary: This game is still the front runner of soccer games - great controls and realistic play. But it still suffers from the same old issues - horrendous replay system (lousy frame rate for replays too), janky menus and pretty lousy soundtrack. But those are all secondary to the spot on gameplay. If only they'd just get those team licenses and remap some of those buttons so you don't go for a boot and end up fouling with a slide tackle!
Summary: I don't usually play sports games. Take that however you want. However, soccer is easily my favorite sport, and really the only one that I enjoy watching. I picked this game up because I heard about the control system and though it sounded really intuitive and fun. Turns out: it is! Absolutely love the controls. Point in the direction you want your player to dribble, point and click on a player to pass to him; It just makes sense.
Summary: the gameplay is what PES is known for, and by my account it is still great, the only real letdown is the lack of detail, the commentary gets very repetitive and is not really geared for first and second half difference (it says the game is almost over when its merely almost halftime) other than these little quirks, the game is great. It would be great for Konami to make sure the game is more polished.
Summary: I'd heard plenty of criticism from the British and Australian/New Zealand gamers about this game when it came out back in late October. After playing this year's version of PES 2008, it became clear to me what the real issues with this game were. While the gameplay and game mechanics are still top notch, they also went slightly downhill this year. I was just fine with the presentation, but some of the finer details in the game make it more obvious how lazy Konami are.
