Well, I got the game yesterday, mixed feelings about it, will try to put it out as simple as possible. I think the gameplay is still there, obviously. There are some few minor tweaks, but the ones I noticed, are for the best. Like scoring from free-kicks are easier now. Thanx Konami, I guess you FINALLY realized that the hard part on taking a free-kick in REAL LIFE is getting the ball to go in the right direction (the goal). If you do that , it´s almost a certain goal, even if it goes it the corner that the keeper is covering. That´s like real life. Not like in PES6, that keepers (who would travel faster than any force applied to the ball) went to get the ball even if it were going outside the posts. Like, I played hundreds of hours of PES 6, and was only able to score a couple of free kicks (thousands of crossbar hits, on the other hand). On PES 2008, I scored countless times on 10 minutes of Training, and scored on my very 1st freekick on a match (Sneijder). Again, thanx Konami. Well, graphically, the game took a new direction, for the better and the worse. The net has a different format (the goal net, not net play :freak, which looks cool. I just think that they could have put on a way for the player to choose from different net formats, just like there´s an option for choosing pitch formats (turf grain). The player models sure are different... I don´t know. I only tried FIFA ´07 on the PlayStation2 (putted it down after 5 minutes, never picked up again), and I can say that Konami is heading in that direction (FIFA series), graphically speaking. Some people like, some people don´t. I personally don´t. Just hope patching makes it look better sooner. I don´t know about about official liscences on PES 6 (only played patched versions), but PES 2008 have the liscenses for all leagues, minus the Premiership (with the exception of Newcastle and Tottenham, from what I´ve seen). I just hoped they would´ve got more teams and legues this year. Well, will keep hoping. This game make me want try out FIFA, because of the liscences. I got full of hopes when I saw PES 2008 was 6 or 7 GB´s in size this time, I thought there were more teams and stadiuns, but in this way, it´s disapointing. Same teams, even less stadiums. I don´t think FIFA got closer in terms of playability, but if it got, I would play it over PES 2008. If it doesn´t, I guess I will keep playing PES 6 (thanx to kitserver and the people who invented this wonderful tool) for the time beign... Let me hear your thoughts on this.
