  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. If you've been suffering with the last version in whatever form, success will be a lot sweeter for it, too.
  5. The controls are a problem, but if you can persevere with them there's an excellent game waiting to be enjoyed - and one where the only minimal thing is the number of degrees you are from reality.
  6. 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]
  7. 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.
  8. A solid – often brilliant – simulation, which for some may prove a little too realistic for its own good.
  9. Better than before. Just lacks that little something extra to make it an absolute screamer. [Jan 2007, p.54]
  10. 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 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. Full Review »

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