Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

The finest football simulation series receives further refinements in Pro Evolution Soccer 4. The presence of an on-screen referee is perhaps the game's most obvious new feature. What's more, this twenty-third being on the pitch is more intelligent than his invisible predecessors: advantages are played more frequently and the fairness of decisions is improved. Another welcome new feature is that of player-specific special moves, whereby only certain gifted footballers will have outlandish tricks in their repertoire--very much in keeping with real life.

Although there was little room for improvement over Pro Evolution Soccer 3's supreme gameplay, Konami has seemingly found it. Dribbling has been given especial attention; the result is tighter control. Crosses, too, are now easier to perform exactly as desired. Also, penalty kicks and free kicks offer increased accuracy with their adoption of a new control system.

Some 136 club sides, including all 56 teams of the Spanish, Italian and Dutch leagues (these are officially licensed) are on offer in Pro Evolution Soccer 4, as well as 50-odd national teams. Typically, this new version of Pro Evolution is the most comprehensive to date--the new season in videogame football kicks off in spectacular fashion. --Jonti Davies

5.0 out of 5 stars Looks like football, FEELS like football 31 May 2005
Pro Evolution Soccer 4 is like a fine wine, it simply gets better with age.

Whilst I agree with the initial comment by the previous reviewer (in that having played PES3, PES4 may seem inferior), I would also say that you just have to keep playing this game to see how good it really is.

Never has there been a game of fooball simulation where you can actually score real goals. I guarantee you that every goal you have seen scored this season, you can replicate it in this game, it really is THAT good.

It comes with the usual challenge of the Master League where your 'Dream Team' is gradually assembled. However now you have the added challenge of not just winning the International Cup etc. now you have to win each domestic league, which is no mean feat! This is done to build up PE Points which can be used to unlock a variety of goodies like Classic Teams, classic players and even new goal celebrations.

The game caters for newbies and casual games with an interactive training section which will have you mixing it up with the pros is notime which brings me to another amazing feature of the game- just like real football, anything can happen. I have seen many an established Pro Evo-er destroy another with constant attacks on goal, only to be undone by a lucky counter-attack or penalty decision- just like real football.

Even the refs are at it! Penalties are regularly given OUTSIDE the box, decisions constantly given the way of the home team, and scandalous red cards dished out, it all depends on the day, and that's the sheer beauty of Pro Evolution Soccer.

Yes, seasoned veterans may take awhile to adjust, but this is one game that you will keep just coming back and coming back to. If you like football, you'll love this game and for 17 quid ?! what you waiting for !!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best game ever! 1 Aug 2005
By A Customer
This game is fantastic. It is easily the best game I've got. I bought it when it first came out and am still playing it now, aged 12. The gameplay is smooth and realistic (if you play on 4-6 star difficulty) and the graphics are good. There are also tons of options-
.The master league, where you can buy your own players.
.Cup competitions, where you can change all the options like how many teams there are.
.Normal leagues, with clubs or national teams.
.Edit Mode, where you can make your own players.
.Training mode where you can do different activites.
All these options will keep you going for ages. Lastly people always compare Fifa to Pro Evo but I think Pro Evo is in a different league because there is no freedom in the gamplay on Fifa although it is good that you can take people on.
Overall-
Graphics 9/10
Gameplay 10/10
Options/freedom 10/10
Commentry 8/10
overall 10/10

5.0 out of 5 stars Most complete football game out! 6 Aug 2005
This is what football is about. Lucky goals, scrapy goals, 30 yard screamers, tap ins and headers. It's all here.
Words do very little - you just have to play the game to understand why many people rate it above the FIFA series.
Give it a play, you wont be dissapointed

4.0 out of 5 stars new to PS2 20 Mar 2006
i got Pro Evo Soccer 4 as part of a PS2 bundle that i bought for my 7 year old for his birthday. I worried whether he would be fussed about the lack of 'official' licenses and such like but, as another reviewer mentioned, the game play and graphics here are fantastic. This is a great game for PS2 novices and wholly sufficient for what I needed. No doubt over time my son will want some of the more personalisable features one might get with EA/FIFA but this has been great. Playablilty, graphics and so on are all top drawer. No idea how this has been 'improved' in Pro Evo 5.

Probably the best football game to grace any computer format. The game is silky smooth a fast wtih players looking as real as it gets. It dosent have as many skills a fifa but the game play out shines it bar none. I truly reccomend this game for any football fanatic.
