Better than FIFA on gameplay

FIFA looks much better but ProEv plays a better game. Online is weak but the two-player contests are great, as as the single-player and master league. You can find option files pretty easily to change some of the kits and update the rosters. I've been a fifa fan but the ps3 fifa is still glitchy. Pro Ev looks like an xbox classic game but the gameplay is much better. If graphics is what you want, fifa is better. For a realistic game of football, ProEv still wins. The bad reviews should be taken with a grain of salt. Hours of fun.

Really Bad

The most dissapointing PES

I have been WE/PES fan until this year. I switched to FIFA 2008 because of many reasons.

1. PES has been getting negative review especially for PS3. I tried it and agree with the negative review.

2. FIFA 08 has a player update/roster feature that makes me not going to switch back to PES until it fixes this issue.

3. The worst design to lock the Online play with serial so I cannot play online thru gamefly.

4. The animation of players are so robotics

5. The game is so arcadish. Players move too quick like robots

6. I tried PS2 version it is way better than the PS3. Probably because not hi-def so the poor animation is probably hidden.

So this game not worth your dollars but penny.

PES was always on the top.. this was the situation 1-2 years ago. But since Fifa07 came out, things did changed.

PES points:

- the best PES so far (no surprise! ) with the HD, but yet far less than fifa07.

Presentation and content:
- Better content, and much better presentation than the previous version, but again, never compared with fif07.

- this has always been the strength point of PES and the weakness point of fifa games. Now, what happened?
Fifa significantly improved the gameplay to be more realistic and more enjoyable with plenty of moves. Whereas, PES continued to maintain the same good level of gameplay but with the drop of the frame rate while intensive play going on!. Having said that, for the same price, go and get the fifa07, and the PES guys have to think of something better. otherwise, it's a dead end for them.. so sad!!
