Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

In a nutshell:
Everything fans could hope for is here: officially licensed leagues from Italy, Spain and Holland line up alongside a replica of the Premiership, as well as the French and German championships. In all, that amounts to 136 club sides and 57 national teams. Plus there's a more detailed Master League, domestic European competitions, and a comprehensive Edit Mode.

The lowdown:
The definitive footie series returns to defend its crown, and how it sparkles when held up to the light. Pro Evolution 5's gameplay has been enhanced to provide a more lifelike version of the beautiful game: players utilise their upper bodies more in the challenge, have more tricks at their disposal, and can now curl shots with pinpoint accuracy. This is total football.

Most exciting moment:
Scoring a virtual replica of Roberto Carlos' legendary free-kick against France -- the one with the unbelievable swerve-- and then dancing around the living room like a lunatic.

Since you ask:
Thierry Henry has been playing Pro Evolution games since the first title appeared ten years ago. The great man clearly has great taste.

The bottom line:
Another trophy for the Pro Evo cabinet.

Pro evo 5 better than any other footie game out there at the moment.FACT. It has an addictive quality like pro evo 4. Once you have grown familar with the slight tweaks made by Konami to passing, dribbling, and shooting, you can't stop playing it, the changes make it more like football compared to previous installments. The gameplay is much more addictive, enjoyable, and realistic than Fifa. Fifa may have the licences but the gameplay is what counts, if your really bothered you can change names, kits, even clubs badges, in the edit mode. The Master league is better than last year and you will enjoy progressing through the seasons, winning trophies as your team improves, eventually becoming the number one team in europe.The multi-player is fantastic and matches become a matter of life or death with extreme tension filling the room just so you can prove your the best pro evo player, and you can by going online and aim to be the best in the world. There are bad points which include: the tackling is very hard and have to be timed perfectly or it will be a free kick, sometimes the referee will be biased towards the computer, but this just makes you more determined to win, also the side stepping move is now too easy to do,(sometimes by accident) and when it is always performed during a match it makes the game unrealistic. Aside from that this a real football game for anyone with an interest in football.

This game gets some funny reveiews sometimes. Some people in their wisdom feel that this game doesn't deserve 5 stars. These people are purely fair weather footy players - they have not grafted with the older version of PES4 day in day out for over a year, getting to know its deep nuances. If they had, they would notice that PES5 is easily a far superior game to what was already something approaching exquisite.
Yes I understand where they're coming from - perhaps for their liking there are a few too many similarities with PES4. Perhaps so - but to my mind the best features have stayed for good reason, but what has increased plentyfold, are all the little subtleties, that only the purest PES4 fan could notice. The range of touches, and animation is so vastly improved,as to almost be dramatic. This in turn just increases the believability of the game, but also the complexity of it. So much more is possible then was before. The touches and tweaks have added whole extra dimensions to gameplay that simply didn't exist before. Konami hae excelled themselves at filling in all the gaps.
The gameplay itself is tighter too. Defenses are not as easy to break down as before, (praise be for this), and you really find yourself having to grind out results. You also notice how much more important each player is in PES5. Every man needs to do their jobs, and ball watcher's will be prosecuted. The game is to my mind more simulation like then PES4 - which again makes it better. Your enemy will constantly be trying to outwit you in the field, putting through cunning through balls and deft one two passes - you really have to keep a tight eye on your back line. All in all its a much more rewarding and involving experience then PES4 ever managaed and a big step forwards for the series - if you don't think so - you haven't played it enough - simple.

Every time a new PES is released it takes a period of adjustment, even for hardened veterans, to get used to the subtle modifications from the previous version. Each time it feels harder to control the ball, more difficult to pick a pass, and more frustrating trying to dribble, shoot, cross etcetera when you fail almost every time. But there is always a sense of a learning curve, of getting a little bit more in touch with how the mechanics have altered.
With PES5 the adjustment period (for me at least) was longer and harder than with any other version. Even now, after several weeks, I am often frustrated by my inability to pull off things I did without thinking in previous versions. For a long time I was convinced that Pro Evo had jumped the shark, had become too hard, too realistic, had become a simulator rather than a game and in doing so had lost the point of why people played it in the first place – because it’s fun.
Patience is needed with this version more than any other. PES5 requires a state of Zen football, something beyond concentration and effort. It takes a long time to adjust to the point where the game becomes instinctive, but once it does- oh wow.
The pace of the game is slower, more thoughtful. Passing and possession are key, a sensible approach to tempo is important, slow build-ups and approaches, probing the opposition for weaknesses. Passing is harder, dribbling is harder, tackling is harder – the game will not play accurate passes for you, will not automatically nick the ball off your opponent if you just tap the tackle button randomly in their vicinity. Everything needs to be timed, anticipated. You will lose possession and not get it back easily.

Pro evo 5 is far better than fifa 2006!!!!
If you are looking for licenses buy fifa, but if you want a fun, realistic proper football game but PES5.
