With the Pro Evolution Soccer series renowned for its fluid, realistic gameplay, the new game builds on the implementation of Teamvision with additional key advances. As with previous releases since its inception in 1996, the ball is again treated as a separate entity, with the timing of shots entirely down to the player, while the new AI ensures that defenders work to close down space and block efforts on goal. Similarly, distribution of passes works along the same lines, with players using the space available to them to switch the ball. Close control has also been enhanced with more control when dribbling the ball, and a number of subtle moves added to bypass defenders and move the ball into space.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Greater Improvments Than Expected (Gameplay wise) New Winning Eleven games are generally hated for a couple of weeks than heaped with adoration. This game is no different. Ok off the start the graphics are still WEish, there are many unliicensed teams and there is lag during replays (I've experience no lag in gameplay offline) At first I found the increased speed unsettling and disapointing, but as I've played I've realized that it forces you to me to make quicker decisions and that an aspect of this is that the deffenders close down quickly when you enter their half of the pitch. This increase of speed has forced me to become more attack minded which is good but I still have the ability to build a play but I have to be smarter about it. The fluidity of the game is much improved, due too an increased number of animations and better ball physics. Finally we have a good shooting mechanism again and scoring is more realistic. Based on gameplay this is my favorite WE game.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great game I just rented this game and fell in love with it. The controls are great. lots of teams to choose from even though some aren't named correctly. The graphics are good but there is some slowdown but it's not to bad. The announcing isn't great but it's bearable. The stats were well done. I just wish that they online was better because u have to register for it to gain access i wish u could just use your PSN account. The interface is very easy to use. the menus are easily navigated. The sound is ok but could have used more chants for specific teams. The default camera angle is OK but seems a little to far from the action so you'll have to adjust it. You have several modes of play including exhibition,Master league,League and cup play. I Would totally recommend this game to any soccer fan. So rent it if your not sure but i haven't regretted it at all

Rated 2 out of 5 by from poor It's very simple. I like soccer. I played every wininng eleven in his history... but this pro evolution soccer is very very bad. Specially when i played online... it's terrible. i byed this game the last saturday and next day i selled. make's me crazy. i can't support this versión of winning eleven or pro evolution or whatever... i love winning eleven, but this version is poor. now in spanish. el juego es pobre, no vale la pena por nada del mundo, sobre todo la opción online, es malísima... ver very very bad. jamás jugué un juego con un online tan pero tan pero tan malo como este... me saco de mis casillas y no me duró un sólo día el juego este. lo repito una vez más, el juego no vale la pena, si lo juegas contra la máquina ok, no problem, but si quieres jugarlo online, olvidalo. ni regalado.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Is thisPES? The worst edition of the most amazing soocer series from KONAMI has become a real joke!! The game actually is a copy-and-paste of the Winning Eleven Pro Evolution 2007 with 10,000 times more bugs!!! I bought it on the launching day and I started to hate it just on the fisrt match I played!!!! I also bought FIFA 08 because there's a lot of great changes in the game. When I played PES I just ejected it from my PS3 and started playing FIFA 08 again!!! I love the past editions of PES and I have played this game since they created that game for NINTENDO NES, I don't remember it's name, but it was one amazing game, I just can't believe that all this years of hard work became such a fraud this year!! I thought: "if EA did such a great game this year, I just can expect perfection from KONAMI" But they didn't! If you wanna play the best soccer game of this year then buy FIFA 08!! for next-generation consoles! Try it setting the controls to manual and you'll feel the nearest experience to a real soccer match!!!
