  1. Although the tweaks and alterations since the last version are only minor, Pro Evolution Soccer is still a decent footie game. But this year the gap between "FIFA" and PES has grown ever tighter. The overall experience of "FIFA" is certainly better but PES still has the hardcore gameplay.

    It may have been the prospect of high-definition Pro Evo that created the most buzz amongst fans, but it's the superior PS2 version that comes out smelling of roses.
  3. If you really want to play online though, or the game modes are important to you, the PlayStation 2 game is by far the better choice. This year Konami can just about be forgiven for short-changing Xbox 360 owners, but next year's game better be next-gen.
  4. A very high standard game but considering the series' lofty expectations it just doesn't go far enough to keep us happy.
  5. 70
    They need to elevate PES to the next stage of its life that it so deserves, and the only way they can do that is to give players more of what they want rather than take from them.
  6. What makes all this a shame is that underneath a layer of awfulness the classic Pro Evolution Soccer gameplay is there fighting to get out. But a broken mess of an online mode, unnecessary alterations and an absent edit mode make this hardly the next generation football classic we were expecting.
  7. There’s just far too much disappointment in PES6 to make it fun; I’m not talking about hype or other people's opinions here, I’m talking about a company too lazy to address the problems that have plagued the series pretty much since the start.

    PES 6 is a very slight downgrade from the remarkable PES 4 and PES 5,but it's still an awesome game.Licensing has gotten better with officialPES 6 is a very slight downgrade from the remarkable PES 4 and PES 5,but it's still an awesome game.Licensing has gotten better with official Ligue 1 teams licensed,but the unlicensed Bundesliga is gone,however Bayern Munich are back and licensed.

    Gameplay is as solid as all the previous titles in the series,the game takes a framerate hit an odd time but never really affects gameplay.

    Sound is meh,crowd noises just aren't loud enough to make yourself think it's a football match.

    Game Modes are identical to PES 5.

    Overall,PES 6 still remains superior to FIFA 07.

    This is the best football/soccer video game made to date. It takes up all my video game playing time. Very addictive, realistic game play.

This game is by FAR the best and most realistic sports video game, period. Full Review »

    I think this game is about as good as it can be given the limits caused by licensing. The gameplay and matchplay have all improved but it is I think this game is about as good as it can be given the limits caused by licensing. The gameplay and matchplay have all improved but it is hard to ignore the lack of edit modes and save replay functions. These issues are all that stop this game from being a 10 in my opinion and (on the pitch at least) it will be hard to make pes 7 much better. Full Review »
