So its been a month or so. After the initial anger at the awful framerate i cooled down abit and decided to give pro evo 2008 a good go, i played a season in the english league which i won easy with spurs on top player. But the difficulty isnt a problem, i win on top player anyway as im sure most people in here do. However i do feel its taken so many steps in the wrong direction since pro evo 6 its almost laughable. If you have the ability to just ignore the awful framerate offline and the lag online and actually check out the gameplay which is what we all buy pro evo for, even that is worse than ever before. I just dont enjoy playing pro evo 2008 and heres a few reasons why. The amazing referee whistle - why is he blowing his whistle the second it crosses the line for a goal or a corner?! its rediculous and just outright dumb from Konami to add this. Freekicks - the referee with his god damn whistle...why put this in after letting us take quick free kicks on pro evo 6? it makes no sense and only annoys the hell out of me when all i want to do is make a quick pass and get on with the game and i hafto wait for the referee to find and then blow his whistle, all of which takes too long. Penalties - what the hell is with the camera angles? are they smoking crack or what ( this can also be related to corners aswel). As if making retarded camera angles wasnt enough Konami have added rediculous penalty decisions to the game aswel...great. Several times now online and off i have seen the most pathetic penalty decisions ever in the world of football. If you havent experienced what im talking about here i will try and give you an example. The last penalty i recieved of this type was the other day. I was Liverpool and Torres had the ball about 12 yards from goal in the box. I take a shot which is blocked by a defender who made a slide tackle about 3 yards in front of Torres. The ball goes harmlessly off for a corner. But Torres still has some momentum which causes him to "stumble" into the defender. *whistle* PENALTY!.....what a joke. I wish i could miss on purpose. The list goes on.......you have downgraded edit mode, Master league which was supposed to be improved, Online play which is a total joke, No kit selection for some bizaare reason.....just for a laugh im sure and then theres hardly any stadiums (im sure people have a bigger list than me). So even if the game didnt have framerate issues for me its still a shocking attempt at a footy sim. The fact it does have framerate issues which they still havent fixed makes it the worst pro evo ever and possibly my last pro evo ever.
