First of all I want to apologise for starting a new thread for a game that is 10 years old. I could have posted this in the PES2008 official thread but I thought that it may not get noticed as this is, after all, 'the lost game'. The reason I call it 'the lost game' is because I believe that this game on the PS2 kind of went unnoticed because of the hype and mainly because of the criticisms of the NG and the PC versions of it. Whereas the PC versions of PES5 and 6 were and are still getting patched the PS2 version of this just got forgotten. I have recently started playing this again after reading old reviews saying that the PS2 version was an improvement on PES6. Albeit slightly faster. But after adjusting the speed globally of each player I am now having so much fun with it in the 3 weeks that I have been playing it. In fact more fun than I have had with PES2017. The main reason is because of the improved AI compared to 5 and 6, and...because of the shooting...ooh the shooting is sublime. Everything that PES2017 lacks regarding shooting is in PES2008. I know I could get caned for this but it is so refreshing to see both me and the AI hitting various types of shots, some weak some strong some daisy cutters some row z. And because of the body position, defender position, weaker / stronger foot, and stats. The video below shows, Janko, an average AI player have 7 shots and only 1 on target, most going wayward. I know for a fact that if it was a top striker like Ibrahimovic, he would have scored a hat-trick. Yes I know that there is so much lacking in this game too, but at the moment the gameplay is fun for me and realistic. I have started a World Cup with some older squads as it is not updated and I will be posting some videos for anyone who cares. Here is the first Group B game between Austria v Chile (me). You can move this mods if you want to. I could not find a video thread suitable. I will be posting more videos of my World Cup.
