IGN.UK Reviews PES 2008
There’s probably not many UK/European readers of this site (there’s a few 😉 ), probably even less that follow football (soccer 🙄 ), but I’ve been waiting for PES 2008 for 2 years. The wait is almost over!
IGN.UK has reviewed the first Pro Evo game on the PS3 and they loved it:
Seabass and his team have come good, then. Next-gen Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 captures the essence of the original games perfectly, gives it an HD injection and takes the AI to the next level. Itâ€™s by no means perfect: the frame-rate drops when the screen gets really busy, usually during a quick clearance when the box is flooded with players or, occasionally, during a replay. But, when youâ€™re actually stuck into the action, itâ€™s likely you wonâ€™t really notice or indeed care. Of course, some players will think that a drop in frame-rate on a machine as powerful as PS3 is an absolute travesty and, in some respects, theyâ€™d be right. But if a flaw as incidental as this prevented said players from buying PES 2008 altogether, theyâ€™d be missing out on the most realistic, intelligent and enjoyable football experience on console yet.
7 days and this will be dominating my PS3! After I’ve edited all the correct names, teams, stadium etc but it’s worth it. FIFA never stood a chance. 8)
