It is with out a doubt the best football game on the console, miles better than the fifa games for any one who loves football this is the best football game you can buy on the PS2.The game play is excellent and the graphics are great.The game play is really smooth and it has neat little tricks you can do to fool the opposition like step overs or chipping the goalie.it might not have the real players names like fifa does but it certianly makes up for it with the game play which to me is more important.I cant for my birthday in a weeks time when i will be getting the latest addition to to a great football series.
Pro evolution soccer 4 is one of the best football games that i have ever played, the game play is great and is the best thing about this game. But the game is not perfect some teams and players don't have the right names but that would be the only flaw in the game.
The game is alot of fun to play and the graphics are great, the best thing about this game is not the matches but it's edit you can change anything you want like players names, teams names, players ability, players apperance, what teams players play for, teams kits and starting line ups. Although some of the players names and teams are not correct you can change them if you can see what team or player it is, you can also make your own player from scratch but you can only use him in the master league and you have to buy him and it can be very hard to reach an agreement also some teams can sweep in and get him before you but that all adds to the enjoyment of the game.
There is lots of modes in this game like master league where you get 1000 pounds to pay your team salary this is never enough but you get money for winning games and of course selling players if you do not have enough money to pay your team salary it will result in game over. When the transfer window opens you can get players on loan, perminent bases and open trade. You start the master league in league two and you have to make your way up you also have to make your way up the wefa rankings. If you don't have a minimum of sixteen players at the end of the season then that will result in game over the only way this can happen is from injuries. Players that have been edited will be normal and not the way that you have made them when you are in the master league. There is also the champions league and the uefa cup in the master league but they have different names.
The league, this is just a normal league where players that have been edited will be the way you made them. There is no transfer window but you can put players into your team with edit and register player. you can be in any league in the world you most win every league to be able to complete the game in my opinion the leagues are boring but can be fun when you'r sick of everything else.
Cups again there is every cup for clubs and internationals you can win these as many times as you want and they can be a good way to try out tactics but mostly the cups are boring. Once you go into a cup you can only change your team match by match but it won't be perminent. You can be in the F.A cup but be a team like inter milan or any other team from outside the english leagues. Once you have won a cup or league you can watch the team getting the cup over and over as many times as you want.
P.E.S (pro evolution shop) in the pro evoloution shop you can buy stuff like master league starting points, master league composition, new hair styles, new goal celebrations, a new training ground, double speed match, unlock legendary players, unlock legend teams, six stars ( a new harder level), a cool light behind a ball when it shows replays and be able to chose your football design.
you can also play a match between two teams that you choose and play a penalty shoot out. This game was made by konami i'm not sure of the price because i got it on offer. This game is for three years and up
thanks for reading
Pro Evolution Soccer 4 is the latest in the series with the unlikely name which has come to dominate football games on the PS2. Like its predecessors, some of which were also known as ISS, it gives the player an indefinable but very satisfying sense of how difficult it is to score a goal. In this respect it scores highly over many other football simulations. Control over tactics and formations allows you to approach each game as it demands, from an all-out assault on a lowly side to a catenaccio-style smash-and-grab raid when up against the table toppers. The game also mirrors the unpredictability of real football - the top sides can have off-days, whilst the worst teams will occasionally turn on the style and put in an unbeatable performance.
The graphics are realistic, especially so when it comes to the players' movements, and the gameplay is second to none. Once you have mastered the simple basic controls, you will know enough to win some games, but there is so much more to learn. There is a whole range of more complex controls which allow you to attempt all kinds of flashy moves. The five difficulty levels will keep you interested for a very long time - even the middle level three presents quite a challenge, and you can even buy an extra level with points earned from playing games and winning trophies.
Players can choose to be any team in the top divisions of the major European leagues, or any major international side. You can compete in any of the leagues or in various pre-set cups which ape the format of major trophies such as the World Cup without using their name. However the piece de resistance is the Master League, which combines league and cup action with an extra level of team management, including buying and selling players.
The only downside of the game is the lack of licensing agreements with some leagues, which means that for example the English club sides cannot be given their real names. Thus Manchester City are Man Blue, and Crystal Palace are named, rather wittily, Crisisbless.
To sum up, this is a complex and rewarding single player game which works equally well as a multiplayer game and will provide long-lasting gaming pleasure.
as the title of this review states this is the best football sim out there so far,the realisim and attention to detail is second to none.The only game to really come close to this is Pro evo 3.I know that half the people that read this will say that there are other games out there that deliver the realisim of the beautifull game but i say you havent really played an electronic league season untill you have been completely drawn into the buying,selling and training of a master league,One of the most obvious improvements that the good people of Konami have made is the addition of an on the pitch referre which again adds to the realisim.As with all the Pro evo series the multi tap option is possiblly the greatist thing about this game,So get seven of your mates,plug them all in,darken the room,and make sure you have enough of your beverage of choice to last at least four days and let battle commence.Just before i leave you i do have one almost minute grumble and this might just be me but i really did enjoy the little tricks and turns and thought they have thrown a few more in just to satisfy my desire almost unhealthy obsestion to emulate my hero Zidan.
I wait with baited breath for pro evolution soccer 5
