"Compared to Fifa-WOW!"

In the past i have always bought Fifa-unaware there was a game that could even rival Fifa for the Playstation 2. However i was considerably disappointed with the latest Fifa, finding it too hard as you were now expected to control another man on 'off the ball runs' whilst controllong the man that had the ball and then choosing the correct weight of the pass to the man that had made the run.

Considering my disappointment i decided to look around to see if there was a game that could rival Fifa and after asking many people everytime I was informed that Pro Evo would be the game for me. After looking at the screenshots/other reviews I decided that this time i would try it and get it instead of Fifa.

I consider this choice to be one of the best gaming decisions i have made.

This is why i have written this review, to try and convince the people that always have played Fifa (like me) that there is another game that can rival it and now in my opinion is better.

The thing i noticed straight away when playing Pro Evo is the immediate response to every button you press if you press a button it does it whereas in Fifa it seemed to do it when it felt like it. In Fifa it often also seemed almost mechanical where every response to, say a foul was the same every time. In Pro Evo this is not the case at all, every response seems lifelike to the players having a big of argy bargy to fouls, players being stretchered off for freekicks and falling differently according to the severity of the foul, things i didn't see happening ing Fifa.

The Graphics in Prov Evo are just as good as Fifa if not better and the facial features, the way the players move are mirrored to their real life characteristics.

One slightly annoying thing which i found better in Fifa is the commentary, the commentators are not as well known (Peter Brackley) and don't seem to say as good things as the commentators on Fifa did.

Another slightly annoying thing is that they don't have the license for all the official team names, they do for the players but not for the team, I gather however this can be overcome later in the game by changing it manually.

So to sum up i am delighted I made the choice I did, don't get me wrong i used to really like Fifa and played on it all the time but if i was given the choice of the two in front of me now i know which i'd go for every time.

Thanks for reading.
