This is the best football game i have eva played...you litterally can do everything and anything...but there is that lil glitch with it and that is to me, is that the clubs and players names arnt right due to the fact they dont have the rights but still u can work out whos who by ability and position
I used to play the old Konami football on the N64 6-7 years ago. This game doesn't seem to have changed much since then except for there is no way of switching on easy/medium/hard mode so that you can get the hang of it before you up the difficulty. This sucks because the other teams can totally outplay you as you try to learn the moves. The training section is pants - it tells you what buttons to press and you press them but the moves don't seem to work - it's just really complicated and not at all user friendly. I started a league and then went to re-load it and I just couldn't work out how to load it up and have not played it since.
I was one of those people who felt it really mattered to have the correctly endorsed kits and the right team names but this year I decided to give in to pressure from friends and buy PES4 instead of FIFA. How pleased I am I did it. In terms of actual gameplay and realism this knocks FIFA for six. Goalmouth scrambles are more realistic and more common plus you don't find that your two strikers are the only players ever to score a goal. Just to name two benefits. Plus you don't get the ridiculous situation (as you do with FIFA) where, in order to make it more difficult for you, it makes your defenders leave an attacker unmarked at the back or allows the computer to shoot and score from anywhere. In PES4 the types of goals you score are more varied because the situations you create are far more realistic. OK so the commentary is awful, badly timed and not even relevant to the game sometimes and of course it would be better not to have to rename all the teams manually but in terms of enjoyment this is a much better game and you soon forget about the frills. I fully recommend FIFA lovers to give it a try. You might just surprise yourself as I did.
This game is a must have. The graphics are fantastic(better than FIFA). The player actions are amazing, for e.g. the celebrations are great, there are 60 different ones(FIFA has around ten, all boring) ON pro evo they do forward flips cartwheels, everything. The gameplay is also great you can go a mazy runs and make great passing moves. The shooting can sometimes be bit weak but when they do a good one it looks great (including the keepers dive) penalties are more realistic and the free kicks are hard but realistic. The commentry is a bit poor with not enough comments and clive tyldsly and trevor brooking tend to do your head in, however, the crowd sounds great. It has an imense edit mode where you can change players from head to toe and there abilities, boots and accessories. If a team hasnt got the sponsors like the english league you can put it on yourself. The only dissapointment is the inabilty to change team commantry names so you have to put up with West London Red and so on. Trust me this game is great FIFA will never compete buy this and enjoy.
By now, every football fan has chosen their favourite franchise from FIFA or Pro Evo so it's pointless trying to convince them to switch sides. But, in terms of sheer realism and tactical precision, Pro Evo 4 has the best game engine of the two. There's nothing particularly wrong with FIFA, it plays well and the graphics are superior, but Pro Evo just feels like it has placed you in the middle of a footie match. Everything's better about this latest update from the graphics, the player intelligence, the keepers' reactions and the referee strictness. The 'play on' rule is great, the AI is near flawless and the player creation facility is terrific fun and fantastically intricate. You can even choose your own commentary name (my own second name happened to be on the list-geekful joy for someone who has the football skills of a doormat !) To surmise, this is a game you buy for it's playability and it will not disappoint. The best football game ever, except for possibly PE5.
