Pro Evolution Soccer is synonymous now with being the best and most realistic football game ever made. Its jump to the PSP with Pro Evo 5 was for me a little shaky, although the basics were there it was a really slow loading game and had a few bugs that were simply glossed over. With the 6th Instalment of Pro Evo I was very impressed. Konami have speeded up the loading times and with it speeded up the actual gameplay a little too. As well as having the keepers much more realistic. This is a very addictive game with many different options even the training mode can be fun if you're looking to brush up your skills before hitting the pitch. You can play in Exhibitions or Tournaments but I usually just play one-off exhibitions. With so many teams to choose from and the unpredictability of every game you play being different, I find it very hard to put down. It also has 5 difficulty levels, if you're new to the game I'd choose level 2 to start with. It's easy but you'll get a feel for it before moving up. Level 5 is really hard and this definitely adds to the longevity of the game. For me the graphics are great for a handheld game and the licensed strips are perfect. All in all this is the best football game I've played on the PSP and possibly the most addictive PSP I've played of any genre. Highly recommended.
