Still Better than FIFA,
By A Customer
This review is from: Pro Evolution Soccer 2 (Video Game)
Konami have done an amazing job with PES2. They have continued their dominance in the world of video game football by creating a game which (unlike other football titles) does not allow you to simply run through the opposing defence. Momentum of players is taken into account, with tackled players not unrealistically stopping dead when they've lost the ball. I remember playing FIFA 2002 and winning up to 8-0 at times even on the hardest difficulty settings, but with PES2 scores are kept realistic (unless your playing Brazil against Jamaica ofcourse).
The supurb Masters League has been improved upon, giving you three divisions to battle your way through and allowing you to negotiate contracts with players and train the promising stars up.
The only problem I see is that team names have still not been changed. Arsenal are still known as London and Manchester United are still called Aregon. This problem has been partially fixed with the introduction of a Edit Mode. But who wants to spend all day changing names.
In all though this is a minor problem, if your after exciting football action buy PES2. It leaves other football games such as 'FIFA 2003 and 'This is Football in it's wake.
