  • Summary: PES 6 once again features the graphical and gameplay tweaks that enable each new title to play completely differently from previous incarnations. The shooting system has been the subject of extensive retouching, now enabling players to pull off much more accurate snap shots as well as being able to exert a much larger feeling of control when going for quick half volleys or difficult full volleys. The intelligence of players has seen a marked improvement. For example, players now make more realistic runs into space, often pointing where they would like the ball played. The physical aspect has also been beefed up, with strikers using their sheer presence to turn defenders and likewise, the defenders stepping a yard away to enable them to force players away from goal and not letting them spin into dangerous positions. PES 6 also has a number of new teams licensed for inclusion, with the International roster now featuring the official kits for Argentina, the Netherlands, Italy, Spain and Sweden. New gameplay modes have been added and features like the much loved Master League mode also returns, together with a host of new tricks, feints and animations that can be used to bamboozle your opposition.

  1. For the first Pro Evo on the DS it's a fantastic achievement. If you're after a portable football fix it's a must-have. [Mar 2007, p.72]
  2. Probably about as good a stab at PES as we had any right to expect from DS, but still a bit pants. [Mar 2007, p.76]
  3. Avoid the poor multiplayer modes and occasional single-player slowdown, and Pro Evolution Soccer 6 offers a solid enough footy experience.
  4. If you're looking for a fully featured PES game, you'll obviously need to look to other formats, but if you're just after a decent facsimile that allows you to enjoy the magic of a flying football, you might find the series' best feature to be its saving grace on the DS.
  5. This being Pro Evo it’s still possible to knock the ball about with reasonable proficiency and score the occasional memorable goal, but if it’s handheld football you’re after, then this is simply not the right console. [Mar 2007, p.110]

    The best I've ever saw, the game play is fantastic. Only thing missing is the league games.

    Okay, it's not perfect, but how many games from a home console on a handheld are. The graphics are not particularly good, but the gameplay is great! It brings the best football game from home consoles onto a Nintendo handheld and does it very well! Expand

    Online multiplayer is good and the game really harks back to the days of ISS but it is very old fashioned, very poor graphically, poor audio and lacks gameplay depth compared to modern football games. I'm a massive pro-evo fan (PS2 version / 360 one is also poor) but alas I can't believe I'm saying this, FIFA on DS is actually better. There I've said it, now flame me, but I'm being honest, Come on Konami you can do better. Expand
