Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Pro Evolution Soccer has established itself as the football game of choice among discerning PS2 owners. With each new addition to the series, Konami makes major improvements to the gameplay and graphics. Pro Evolution Soccer 3 is no exception; it really is miles better than Pro Evolution Soccer 2.

The first thing you'll notice in this third instalment is how much more lifelike it is. Not only are the graphics much more detailed, but the player animation is now realistically fluent and the ball behaves as an actual Size 5 would. Squint and you really will think you're watching Sky Sports.

Pro Evolution Soccer 3's gameplay is perfectly balanced. Whatever your favoured way of playing the Beautiful Game (total football or long ball, it's up to you) Pro Evolution Soccer 3 accommodates that preference. Controls are sharp and responsive, and with the right combination of button presses it's possible to perform just about any manoeuvre or trick in Real Madrid's repertoire. That's how comprehensive this simulation is.

As a single-player experience, Pro Evolution Soccer 3 is a far sight more challenging than its predecessors were: the Master League mode is expanded still further and the artificial intelligence is a tough nut to crack. And, as was expected, this third game in the series takes multiplayer PlayStation 2 gaming to new heights. --Jonti Davies

5.0 out of 5 stars the beautiful game 27 Dec 2003
Format:Video Game
PES1 was great, PES2 was quite simply sublime, and PES3 has continued the trend by being just that bit better, just that bit sleeker, and just that bit more like the real beautiful game.
Everything is here. A far more realistic master league, now featuring 4 seperate leagues each split into two divisions, which leads to a champions league style tournament between the top teams of each league.
Player transfers between teams have been tweaked to near perfection: you can no longer acquire players with no club team for free, making for a much more balanced master league experience.
Players perform the duties they perform in real life. Zidane is a playmaker with incredible skill, Roberto Carlos powers down the wing and shoots from long distance, David Seaman lets a lot of poor shots past him.
The gameplay has been honed to perfection. Matches can be high scoring (4-0 is the highest I have acheived, and also the most I have been defeated by) or they can be 0-0 affairs where nothing you do works. It's all down to you - if you have the skill, you can pull something special out of the bag. If you're just running straight at the goal, more often then not you'll be broken down and counter-attacked. Your players have varying morale and fitness - if you don't rest key men you can find yourself suffering at the hands of a team far below you in the league.
Celebrations are better now, also! There are many trademark celebrations, and I am pleased that scoring late in the game makes your striker pick the ball out of the net and run back to the centre.
The licence is again disappointing: I solved this by purchasing the update disc from amazon, which was cheap enough and worked perfectly. As a result, this game could not be any better.

4.0 out of 5 stars If Sky sports was a game... 6 Dec 2003
Format:Video Game
this would be it.
The stunning graphics, gameplay and content are what make the game beat fifa 2004 hands down. Yet, still people persist to buy the game that has 3 men on it's cover that pretend to be running, rather than the one that has the bald headed ref that controls them on the front. Why? God knows.
Ok, yeah yeah yeah, PES3 doesn't have the kits (with the exception of a few very well designed Italian shirts), or the proper names for some teams. But who cares? You looking at the ball aren't you when you play, so who cares if the players are called UGA BOOGA BOO and play in clown suits? Losers, thats who.
I bought fifa 2004 the morning it came out. I took it back that afternoon. That night I went to blockbusters and rented PES3. Took it back sunday morning, and bought it. The difference in playability is huge.
Only four stars because no games perfect, but if your wondering what to buy that special male in your life for christmas (any age), then this is it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best football game ever made!! 29 Mar 2004
Format:Video Game
In terms of sheer playability, this game has to be the best ever made!! The combination of tricks, off the ball running, innovative passing and the highly realistic shooting gauge, make this game awesome. A big thing is made about the fact that many team and player licenses have been omitted, but this is easily overcome by purchasing the ultimate update, and also up dates are available via the internet. The training games help any newcomers to Pro Evolution grasp the basics, and the player edit feature allows you to change pretty much anything you want. The matches themselves allow for any number of possible situations and set-pieces, with emphasis placed on the pass timing and weight, as well as the shooting placement and power which, as in real life, needs the player to set himself properly and use a cool head.
Now for the criticisms: 1) The lack of any real creative license in terms of setting your formation. There are only a certain number of players allowed in defence, midfield and attack. So if your 2-0 down with 10 minutes to go, you can't for instance have a 1-1-8 formation!! 2) In modify player mode you can't move players between clubs, which would have been so much easier. 3) The consistancy of the referees is sometimes laughable. Any sliding challenges, no matter if you cleanly win the ball, often result in yellow cards, and once I was sent off for blocking a goalbound shot with my legs!! But if a player is fouled when through on goal, or if the defender is the last man and gives away a penalty, the referee will often point to the spot but completely forget about the defender involved. This often leads to much teeth-grinding and abuse directed at the man in black. 4) The goalkeepers are also quite erratic.

Better editing- Over 70 hairstyles, edit eyebrows,noses,eyes,mouths,cheeks,eyes,cheeks etc.
New animations- More individual celebrations (over 40),new styles of shots, players tend to use their stronger foot, players follow up their shots if goalkeepers parry.
New PES3 shop, use points gained in competitions to buy new items such as new hairtyles etc.
PES3 has the same sort of gameplay as PES2, but with some big tweaks, it feels more like football when you play it. If you were thinking about getting Club Football or FIFA 2004, Well don't as PES3 is the winner, although Club Football is pretty decent as well.
