I totally hate PES6! Many hate it on Xbox 360 but I think it is just as terrible on PS2! It is by far the worst konami football game i have ever played! I am so angry inside when I think of how the hell konami managed to mess up the game. I really annoys me that I will have to wait until October to see if Konami can puts things right and back to what they once were. Out of all PES/WE games, my favourites were PES3, WE8: Liveware Evolution & PES5! WE10 & PES6 have totally ruined it for me! I know that konami will not even care or take notice of anything I am saying but I am just so angry that I really need a good rant! Here is some things that I feel need sorted for the next PES game: * Better Goalkeepers - The first reason that I ever played the ISS series back in the day was because I loved the fact that the goalkeepers were so hard to beat. I always enjoyed the challenge and it kept the games at a realistic normally quite low score in contrast to the constant 6-6 scorelines in PES6. I really like the idea of super keepers. The keepers in PES6 have hideous positioning, handling, shotstopping, decision making, etc. They are also far too slow to get off their line when holding . I quite liked the way you could use the keeper like a sweeper properly in PES1. * Better defending - I am the type of player who really enjoys good defending and in all previous PES games, my success was based on very solid defending coupled with good counter attacking. however, the defending in PES6 is total crap and it is far too hard. I really liked PES5 as defending was alot better. To me if konami want to make the game challenging, they should worry more about making it hard to attack and breakdown the defence rather than making it hard to defend and stop conceding goals. That way the game will have realistic scorelines on a consistent basis. * Better shooting - To me the shooting in PES6 is very poor. I just really dont like it at all. The shots just dont look and feel normal and realistic. I preferred the shooting in WE8: Liveware Evolution. Its kinda hard for me to describe why I dont like the shooting but i just think its very poor. * Less long distance goals - To me this is a major problem. It is just far to easy to not bother trying to break down your opponent and instead just score a blast from long distance. In PES6 it feels almost like cheating as its just so easy. It should maybe only happen once or at most twice in a match. I think it may have been more realistic in PES3 & WE8: Liveware Evolution. * Better Chip shots - It is far too hard to score a lob in PES6 and when you do score its normally very poor looking. I do feel that it was far too easy in PES3 but i would still rather have that than PES6. It is near enough impossible to score a little close range dink over the keeper. The chip shot was quite good in PES1 & PES2! * Better crossing - The crossing in PES6 is the most poor of any PES game i have ever played. The crosses are never accurately placed and it is not helped by the fact that there is hardly ever anybody already in the box waiting for a cross. Crossing was good in PES3. The long ball + was very effective and very good in PES3! * Better heading - Heading is total tosh in PES6. There is hardly ever a bullet header and most of them are just slow, inaccurate floppy headers that float miles over the bar. Heading was much better in previous versions. * Super Cancel - I personally feel that something has changed i PES6 with super-cancel. It just seems so much slower in less responsive and I thought that it was pretty much perfect in PES5! * Better net physics - They should just look alot more cooler and I really hope they remove the stupid looking animation where the ball hits the net and flys the whole way back out and past the penalty spot. That animation is stupid looking! * Better referee decisions - There are too many occasions in PES6 where there are obvious fouls that go unnoticed. There was not alot wrong with refs in PES5 so why change it? Too many times there are sendings off even when the ball was won first. * Improved passing - I hat the passing in PES6. It is far too slow and normally quite innacurate. Far too often players just wait for the ball to reach them and then they are tackled. And far too often you cannot pass the ball to the player you intended to. One-two's are really weak and just so ineffective. They should have been left alone. Also the through ball passing is shite. Both low and high through balls are normally innacurate and poorly weighted. The through balls was very good in PES1 & PES4 and they should go back to that. * There should be more tactical options. I dont really like that fact that in PES6 konami have given you too much help with the tactics. To me the should be far more emphasis on tactics and tactics should be key in deciding who wins a game as opposed to luck. I dont like the fact that in PES6 konami removed the counter attack & zone press option from the A/B/C team strategy settings menu. * Free kicks are far too hard to score from. It seems to be the only time in the game where the keepers are good although a little too good. Freekicks should go back to the way they were. Even in WE10 they were better but they were really good in previous versions. * Corner kicks - Should be more of a chance. Winning a corner kick should be a good thing instead of in PES6 were you know it is not really a goalscoring chance and very little will come of it unless you are lucky. Corners were good in PEs3 & PEs4 & WE9. * The d-pad - I know for a fact that PES6 favours the analogue sticks. I have tested shooting with both and there is far more curl and a better shot with the analogue stick compared to the d-pad and the same is evident for free kicks were i get very little curl on the ball if any with the d-pad. * A.I of team mates - PES6 has some of the most stupid teammate A.I ever. Your teammates never make intelligent runs or get themselves into intelling good areas. Also there is a major glitch with the wing backs in PES6 as they never stay in their position and are constantly too high up the field or else tucked in too much and basically playing like a centre back. Get it sorted konami! * Volleys - Volleys are far too difficult and far too innacurate on PES6! They were quite good in WE8:Liveware Evolution and they need to be sorted. I am not saying that you should be scoring any more than two volleys per game but you should at least be able to get a decent volley on target or work the keeper more consistently. * Tricks/Skills - This is one area that has always been weak in every PES game. I think that the skills and tricks should be much more effective and actually tie in with the creation of a goal. For example, what is the point of a step-over in PES games as it doesnt actually fool the opponent and the animation doesn't even involve a dummy or going one way and then another direction to fool the defender. Instead, the game just makes you run in a straight line stepping you foot over the ball and waiting to lose possesion. * Pace - for me it is pointless having a player with pace in PES6 as you cannot tell a real difference. Many a time a maldini will catch a cristiano ronaldo in pes6 which is just wrong. In PES2 & WE9 the pace difference was good and actually noticeable as with Henry you could easily run past slow defenders and was much more realistic compared to what now feels like magnetics defenders sticking to you when you have taken it past them. * Strange touches - There are far too many occasions when my player magically runs or touches the ball in a totally opposite direction from what I am pressing o my controller and many times the players have such hideous first touches and the chest control is appauling. I know this is a long rant but there is probably still alot more suggestions that I would have for konami! I will really expect alot of things to be ironed out now on the next-gen version or else i may totally give up on PES/WE! I will never play PES6 again as it is just far too painful to play and gets me too angry at the thoughts of how such problems did not exist in previous versions!
