  1. The tweaks that Konami has made to the match engine have produced a more refined game, but there's not a hint of the revolution attempted by EA Sports in most annual FIFA updates. There are also only a handful of new features, chief of which are eight-player online support, an increase in the number of licensed teams, and an international challenge mode.

    It's still not the prettiest game on the block, and frankly, the lack of the German league is a huge peeve, but the core gameplay is very much intact, and razor sharp as ever.

    When you compare Winning Eleven to "FIFA 07's" PS2 effort, it wins by a large margin -- particularly as it's the best-playing sports game on the system.
  4. Winning Eleven Pro Evolution Soccer 2007 is the least evolved Evolution yet, and ironically, in literal comparison, probably the best. It's still the only game GR's UK staff plays every lunchtime and talks about all day.
  5. Faster, slicker, with countless new animations and creative possibilities: Winning Eleven 10 has made its predecessor feel robotic, stiff and altogether redundant. [July 2006, p.133]
  6. Honestly, Winning Eleven 2007 is so fun we can almost forgive Konami for "Bomberman: Act Zero"...almost. [Apr 2007, p.82]
  7. Even with some recycled content, and the bland menus, Winning Eleven boils down to one key aspect that no other soccer title has; great core gameplay.
  8. Some truly mesmerising play will be had, but more importantly Winning Eleven 10 will see the old grimace of concentration replaced by a big daft grin. Roll on PES6 - it's sure to be even better. [JPN Import]
  9. There doesn't seem to be as much to learn this time and feels more like a simple update than usual. Still, "WE 10" is the best footie game around, no contest. [JPN Import; July 2006, p.86]

    My favourite football game to this day. They just nailed the gameplay, I felt completely in control which I haven't done in any football game since, especially not a FIFA one... Full Review »
