    Plays the opposition off the park. The best footy sim on the PlayStation, and possibly every other format as well.
  2. I've been playing soccer games for more than 15 years, ... Now while there have been many excellent live-action soccer games over that period nothing comes close to either Evolution or GameNight.
  3. It's an incredible system that only gets better with repeated play. Every aspect of control is duly handed to the player.
  4. For all its undoubted good looks, proper names and neat tricks, the best footy game on PS2 is actually the humble PSone's ISS Pro Evolution.

    Real football simulation. Once you play it you can't forget it. (If you belong to the football tribe).

    For me, there have only ever been three truly great football games. Chronologically, they are Microprose Soccer, Sensible World of Soccer, andFor me, there have only ever been three truly great football games. Chronologically, they are Microprose Soccer, Sensible World of Soccer, and the PS1 ISS. I remember the air of unpredictability, and the joy/despair in a last minute goal, having battled through the game a 0-0 until 90+1. Unlike the FIFA games at the time, this game required more than learning a routine to score, and then thrashing the opposition 10-0. Most games would be low scoring, with the occasional thumping (both for and against) cropping up. Own goals, goalkeeping errors, refereeing inconsistencies all added to an air of realism not felt before (or, possibly, since). Expand
