  1. Another quality run-out for PES on PS2 but it is only a shade better than "FIFA 08." [Christmas 2007, p.68]
  2. Konami have done a great job of making Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 on the PS2 a game that stands firm against the competition of its next-generation versions, and indeed is a cut above the rest in certain respects like the number of stadiums on offer.
  3. A typically solid performance from Seabass. [Dec 2007, p.82]
  4. 84
    A very impressive soccer game, mainly because it mimics the current-gen versions so well. While it would have been nice to see a few specialized PS2 modes (a guy can dream), the fact that we can play through years in Master League with a created player and watch him develop is cool enough.
  5. It's still an excellent football game that is perfect for newcomers to the series, but just don't expect it to be all that different to PES 6.
  6. Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 looks more like an update than a truly new game. The flaws from previous years are quickly becoming blatant, and still they manage to fade away after a few hours of truly satisfying play.
  7. 80
    Compared to the HD versions, this PS2 game has significantly better features, such as great cross-compatibility with the handheld version.
  8. Still class, but more or less the same as last year. [Jan 2008, p.79]
  9. The PlayStation 2 version of Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 is the most fully-featured version of the game, but it still suffers from a broken online mode.
  10. 75
    The formula here has already been pillaged, but it's not as suicidal as the PS3 version. [Issue#160, p.98]
