Written on: 18/11/2005 by Mazymeach (7 reviews written)

Good Points
A very good personal review but one I can't agree with.
Multiplayer is a good option but one you will soon get fustrated with due to the poor gameplay and occasional lag.

Bad Points
Awful Passing.
Dribbling is like driving an Articulated truck !
Player turn like a Bus !
Far too may free kicks

General Comments
For me Pro Evolution Soccer 4 was like driving a Ferrari on an open motorway with no speed limit. However, Pro Evolution Soccer 5 is like driving a 50 ton artic truck in the pouring rain with dodgy tyres and no windscreen wipers !

I so much wanted this game to be good and I've tried to play even when I've vowed never to do so again and in my eyes this game is poor.

Yes Yes we've all played PES4 to death and wanted a new challenge but the challenge we face is of making a decent pass or trying to run in a straight line !

Of course the multiplayer option has been improved and I salute them for it but the game poor gameplay and other little things are ruining this for me.

Sometimes the lag is so bad that you kick off and the next thing you see is that conceeded a corner.

If you playing against a single person they will constantly keep their thumb on the X button to rush computer players into you which results in constant fouls, 30 fouls last time I played.

I also played a game when the opponant was 1-nil up after 5mins and played the rest of the game playing it around his back four, I thought this was supposed to be a game.

In short PES4 was a joy to play, the ball went where you wanted it to do, your imagine after a flowing move, your shot ending in the top corner. Your players moved with fluid grace and a match was enjoyed win,lose or draw.

I'm sure at so point I'll be playing the 'Live' option but then I'll remember way I didn;t like it in the first place.
