  1. In PES6 you can make a sliding tackle and come up with the ball, and the AI has been greatly improved. The passing and shooting have been made harder to master and the players’ movement off the ball is better.
  2. For the single player, though, Master League is where it's at and, personally speaking, it remains the greatest game mode of all time in any game ever. [Dec 2006, p.84]
  3. Remains teh best 'arcade' football game around. [Christmas 2006, p.74]
  4. If you want slick, beautifully presented footie, controlling your local first division side, stick with "FIFA," but if you're after a visceral, accurately modelled game then look no further than PES6. [Dec 2006, p.107]
  5. Pro Evolution Soccer still beats FIFA hands down. It may not be able to compete in terms of next-gen polish, but this is a case of matter over style. In terms of evolution, the new game might not be so pro, but it still offers a more rewarding football experience.
  6. It’s the best damn football game ever made, but only by a gnat’s whisker, and if anything that whisker is merely the updated seasonal player data which separates it from Pro "Evolution Soccer 5."

    Another season starts here... Best football simulator, better then ever before! But still there is some things to be improved: 1. More Another season starts here... Best football simulator, better then ever before! But still there is some things to be improved: 1. More licensed teams and leagues will make challenge more realistic. 2. AI! Even at "Top Player" difficulty scores up to 12-0 can take place and some seasons in ML ends with more then 170 goals scored(213 - best) and less then 30 conceded (9 - best) after 30 matches! So it NEEDS TO BE MASSIVELY IMPROVED IN NEXT GAMES IN SERIES! Full Review »

    This is probably the best sport simulation right now and it cannot be even compared to FIFA because of all the possibilities, different style This is probably the best sport simulation right now and it cannot be even compared to FIFA because of all the possibilities, different style of goals, dribling actions which pes6 now posses, and with improved graphics and sound with commentators on 6 languages makes pes6 the champion. The only thing that pes6 need is a full license for teams and players and then it will be inevitable for any player. Full Review »
