    I agree with many people that this game has the best engine for simulating the soccer game (surely better than FIFA series ). But this has no worth at all since the gameplay is absolutely bad. For me gameplay is the most important things in the game, that's why I rate 0 for it. It seems like the production team don't know anything about soccer. In easier level, the gameplay is I agree with many people that this game has the best engine for simulating the soccer game (surely better than FIFA series ).

It seems like the production team don't know anything about soccer. In easier level, the gameplay is so nonsense. In the most difficult level, I have not found the harder soccer game but just a full of cheat game. Like someone above said, "if the AI decides to win they will win -if the AI decides to get a the ball they will get the ball", etc. And the worst thing that anyone who loves this game should realize is "when you get a goal, win the match, or get anything making you proud from this game, it just the AI decides it to be!"

    This is just bloody awful. All the team and player names are wrong - how can this be a simulation of football?? The game is constantly stopping for fouls. If you get the ball and run anywhere near a computer player in their half they foul you. It is difficult to control your players who seem hell bent on completing worthless animation sequences instead of what you ask them to do. But the This is just bloody awful.

It is difficult to control your players who seem hell bent on completing worthless animation sequences instead of what you ask them to do. But the worse thing is that even with a game pad you only get 8 directions on the pc and passes just never seem to go where they were intended. In fact holding the pass button down longer (suposedly for a long pass) makes no difference. The computer controlled players on your team constantly run offside or don't make any decent runs whereas the computer team can split your defense in half with one long ball. The league system is crap and you can't simulate a real league with cup competitions etc. The menu system is poor. This is real tosh. I honestly can't understand what all the fuss is about. This is a very bad game. Expand

  1. It's simple, Pro Evo IS football and the latest version makes enough enhancements to continue the series onward march to perfection. If you're a footie fan you need this, casual fans however might not necessarily appreciate the subtle modifications compared to previous titles.
  2. Can it improve on last year's version? The answer is most definitely yes, but like any successful team, you're going to have to work hard to achieve results.

    The pure footballing pleasure of Pro Evo 5 serves as a reminder of what it all should be about. Some fans of past iterations may not like the tweaks made here to a formula loved by so many, but evolution is inevitable and I think we're just about heading in the right direction.
