  • Summary: PES 6 once again features the graphical and gameplay tweaks that enable each new title to play completely differently from previous incarnations. The shooting system has been the subject of extensive retouching, now enabling players to pull off much more accurate snap shots as well as being able to exert a much larger feeling of control when going for quick half volleys or difficult full volleys. The intelligence of players has seen a marked improvement. For example, players now make more realistic runs into space, often pointing where they would like the ball played. The physical aspect has also been beefed up, with strikers using their sheer presence to turn defenders and likewise, the defenders stepping a yard away to enable them to force players away from goal and not letting them spin into dangerous positions. PES 6 also has a number of new teams licensed for inclusion, with the International roster now featuring the official kits for Argentina, the Netherlands, Italy, Spain and Sweden. New gameplay modes have been added and features like the much loved Master League mode also returns, together with a host of new tricks, feints and animations that can be used to bamboozle your opposition.

  1. Persevere with teh D-pad/analogue nubbin purgatory and you'll discover a great PES. [Jan 2007, p.78]

    Yes, the loading times are a pain but do they ruin the experience as a whole? Not at all. Yes, the AI seems a little weaker than the PS2 version but is it really that noticeable? No, especially at the higher difficulty settings.
  3. It's by no means perfect, but PES6 is the best footie game on PSP and is essential for fans of the series. [Christmas 2006, p.88]
  4. A solid – often brilliant – simulation, which for some may prove a little too realistic for its own good.
  5. The flaws have been fixed and it's now bursting with the quality you'd expect, but it's still just a trimmed version of the PS2 game. [Jan 2007, p.78]
  6. PES fans disappointed by last year's PSP game should be a lot happier with PES 6. Until a handheld is released with a full complement of buttons it's unlikely that we'll receive a 100% accurate console to handheld port, but PES 6 plays a great game of football in its own right.
  7. Providing you can get your head around the overly crammed control system and slightly iffy player intelligence, the addition of Master League mode should provide many a pleasant train journey.

    I think its much better gameplay than FIFA 07 but its only downfall is the team and cup names. I think master League is the best thing any football game has to offer. pes is obviously the best footy game around. Expand

    OK, its slow loading times, but put it on your mem stick and it flies with no waiting. Gameplay is so much better than FIFA 07 and option files are available to update leagues/teams. Expand

    Fantastic game in every way apart from graphics which need to improve.

    Good game but I don't feel there is much of an improvement on the previous version.

    Much improved gameplay from previous version but slow downs when crosses are made brings the score down.

    I really wanted to love this game, but the painful load times, the stupid player intelligence and the trickiness of attacking and defending make it aggravating to play and at times, not a lot of fun at all. Expand
