Winning Eleven Pro Evolution 2007
Or should that be devolution?
Winning Eleven is a riotous success on PSP, but how does the classy soccer sim translate to the humble DS?
First impressions are positive; look past the basic graphics and you can definitely tell this comes from the Konami soccer stable, as passing is decent, one-twos are deadly and this retains the essential feel of the PS2 version.
Unfortunately, WE07 DS is way too one-dimensional to engage your attentions for long. It's super-hard to score long strikes and even when you skin your marker and whip in a cross it's invariably headed clear by a bruising center back.
Before long, your repertoire of attacks simply consists of threaded through passes - and once you've gotten inside the box it's almost a given that you'll tuck it neatly away past the execrable excuse for a goalkeeper, however impossible the angle might seem.
