Advantages: Game quality, graphics, competitions available, master mode
Disadvantages: Unreal naming of certain characters and teams
This game was released into the gaming market with only one real main rival, Fifa 2008. I think that Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 dominates the football game area and wins hands down in any toss up between the two.
With incredible graphics and fantastic controls, this game offers so much entertainment and hours of endless fun! The superb league mode allows you to participate in full, in many of Europe's leading premier divisions, including leagues from England, Spain, France, Italy and Holland. Each league has the correct teams in essence, although many are unlicensed. This devastating factor means that only some of the team names, and some of the player names will be correct. This is due to the rights owned by the company but although it can be annoying at first, you soon will realise that in actual fact, it does not really alter game play at all, and your entertainment will still commence.
There is also a master league ability which allows you to control more of the team and select players who you want from other teams, managing transfers and leading each player through experience, upgrading their overall ability. Basically, just like any other manager mode, but I really like this one, especially as there is an option which basically allows you to start from scratch, ensuring hours of fun as you try to perfect and hone your skills in becoming the best in the league!
There are fifteen magnificent stadiums to host the matches, each filled with realistic crowd and narrated professionally by Jon Champion and Mark Lawrensen to give the better experience to game play. The same licensing issue mentioned previously does however mean that the stadia could be unconventionally named. I say could, the truth is they are. Again, this is not so much of an issue to hinder game play.
One of the best features of this game for the Xbox 360 is the gamerscore available. It is really exciting, and can get rather competitive to compete against friends to see who can get the highest score amongst everyone. To basically enlighten confused minds, gamerscore is a certain number of points allocated to the user when a certain task has been completed. These can then be used for bragging rights in order to decide who is the most skilled friend. An example would be you get some for winning 100 matches, or defeating every team in a league.
This is a very fun game, and probably one of the most used games I own for this console. I strongly recommend this to try if you are a fan of football, or even just sport. Especially after the release of the newer version, this will be cheaper in price and even more worth it's value.
Summary: A fantastic football game, worth every penny !
