  1. A strange PES experience that wins you over not through its football but with its quirks. [Apr 2008, p.82]
  2. It's fun, it's just not top of the table. [Issue#20, p.88]
  3. You're probably as well-served going for FIFA '08 on DS than you are this. That said, this is a decent attempt at portable football on the DS that carries Pro Evo's name, though don't let it fool you into thinking it's anywhere near as majestic as other versions.
  4. Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 is more playable than its predecessor, but it's just as muddled and unimaginative.
  5. 55
    The Nintendo DS isn't really a sports powerhouse game system, but it really deserves better than this.
  6. 47
    With FIFA already offering a fairly respectable portrayal of the sport on the DS, there’s no reason to even consider purchasing Pro Evolution Soccer 2008; it’s a redundant retread of already barren ground, failing as both an update or a standalone title.
  7. The previous niggles remain, and nothing was done to make matters more pleasant. It's difficult to enjoy PES 2008 on DS when clearly not even Konami was passionate about it.
  8. Offering no discernible improvement over its lacklustre predecessor and paling in comparison to more accomplished DS football titles, PES 2008 is best relegated to bench-warming duty.
