    Can someone provide a complete tutorial/tips and tricks for playing PES2008? Like when doing ... Press L2, how to make a good cross etc.

    I played a lot of PES/WE versions but I only started playing it regularly a few months ago. Thanks. :)

    use R2 to slow down when running helps menouver
    up and cricle on corners makes low cross
    use training mode and you will get better
    try making croses not just passes on floor since in pes 2008 cpu is better at stealing
    and just keep playing and inshallah you will get better

    Salam

    Thanks for your input. In corners I use :l1:+:circle:+UP to make a strong cross.. Anyone knows how to stop the ball when it passes next to me? Sometimes the player just ignore the ball and let it go to the opposition. Happens when the COM/other player attacks and passes the ball to another player while my player is in between.

    Set all your Defenders as "CB",turn off the offside trap, let your defenders stay deep in the defence, let your enemy come, then start a counter attack ;)

    Your Wing Defenders will stay in the Defensive, so you won´t have them as a support in the Offensive but who cares as long as you have less problems conceding a goal :D

    I use a similar strategy to this, but I guess it depends on play style, as some folks like having the wing backs come up in the attack. For me, I like my defenders to play defense solely.

    Also, consider that PES is supposed to be a re-creation of actual football, so be mindful of how you go about defending top class attackers on the harder difficulties, learn to use the player you control to cut off his potential receiving options, while bringing in a 2nd defender to pressure him. Do not always try to get the ball back so quickly, that is one of the easiest ways to leave your keeper in a one on one situation.

    Another Tip for you, try to improve your one-two passes, they are very effective, but you will realize that soon enough

    Very true, the 1-2 passes are an essential part to any attack, even if you don't "complete" the 1-2 pass, having that player make a run can take a defender away from a possible lane for a shot, pass, cross, etc.

    Which buttons do you use in defending? The COM sometimes makes an efficient stop to make the ball hit the player.

    Sometimes the ball hits my player and goes a few yards away from him. Is there a way to stop that or it is something in PES?

    Is there an efficient way to stop the opposition from becoming Maradona? :D The whole game seems to be like Maradona reincarnates.

    just try to stay on yourman this might include letting go of the x button and sometimes uese supercancel to adjust your player for the optimal covering

    Playing against COM, the ball will always end up far away from your player and heading to the closest COM player :roll:. I get that all the time at top difficulty. Anyway, when attacking, receive passes holding :r2: is better. When defending is better to wait for your opponent pressing :r2: to face him and have more control over your player, and wait until you´re close enough to press :x:

    Yeah, holding R2 does seem to work, also try to cut off their passing options and they will have to go back.

    Some tip:

    I like to do this, keep running along the side pitch with your player, press run button (mine is R1) twice when u run, then press the cross button, once for long cross, twice for short cross or a cross close to the goal and thrice (three times) for a low cross. What difference this make than the usual run and cross, is for me, i think the cross made is better and more accurate. Anyway, to score from a cross depends on your striker on how he react when he receives the ball, and also his position.
