A Quick One-Two, And Then It's A Third

AdvantagesMade to build up play in a realistic manner, the Master League

DisadvantagesHandball, computer A.I., referee decisions, pass interpretation

"...collection it looks as if Pro Evolution Soccer 3 would finally be on its way out. With the upcoming January transfer window approaching PES3 is perhaps surplus to requirements, but that's not to say that this not a class title, for I simply feel it is time to move on. As a PlayStation 2 title, the tendancy to model games towards realism is showing, and the effort towards recreating the beautiful game means we can identify with the football games we ..."

The best football game in the world!!!

AdvantagesGreat gameplay/addictive/fantastic depth

DisadvantagesThe commentary

"...the beaUtiful game: Football. Konami's Pro Evolution Soccer series has always been regarded by the critics as the superior and best football game out there. The main competition to the Pro Evolution games comes in the form of EA's FIFA games. This 3rd game in the series was released in October 2003 to a huge amount of antipation. I think that the back of the game box sums things up rather well indeed, "A new season starts! Real football is back!". ..." Read review

That's a great shot from...Number 13!

AdvantagesGood graphics, improved gameplay, addictive fo those who love football

Disadvantagesextremely poor comentary, few liscenses

"Due to complaints from friends I have been forced to change this to a 5 star rating. The game gets incredible once played for a while and outstanding goals become possible and in general it is something very satisfying to master. (Even though I always loose.) I would also like to thank all those who have read and rate this review, and urge you all to ignore the idiot rater who likes to think it will shove me off the top spot if he rates badly. Ok ..."

The legend that is Pro Evo 3

Advantagesgreat playability especially with a multitap and mates!

DisadvantagesSome annoying glitches. nothing major

"...this is from the legendary Pro Evolution series, each one getting better than the other. Now, Pro Evolution Soccer 3 (PES3) has many features that the previous games didn't which should be expected from a more advanced game, however, it also blows the likes of Fifa and T.I.F out of the water (sorry to any hardcore Fifa fans out there!) ---------------------In Game options--------------------- Once in the game options, you get many of your standard ..."

They shoot, they score!

AdvantagesThe Best Football Game Bar None

DisadvantagesLack of license means few 'real' player names

"...the FIFA series has over Pro Evo Soccer is the FIFPRO license which means FIFA can use the real players names whereas PES3 can't. But if you have no life and a few hours to spare then you can work out all the players real names and change them (there are lists floating about the internet). However most people will just live with it. And it soon becomes clear that the rest of the game more than makes up for it. The control system feels natural and ..." Read review

GOAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AdvantagesPretty much everything, apart from...

DisadvantagesThe gameplay is sometimes unrealistic, players and teams are wrong

"...around. But they have! Although Pro Evolution Soccer 4 is already out and with number 5 coming out next month, I have only just started to play the Pro Evolution series and I am already addicted. The game is suitable for almost any number of players up to 4 at a time. I have had many happy experiences with my family and friends on mutiplayer. There is a wide selection of teams including both national and club teams. The only slight disadvantage ..." Read review

Pro Evolution Soccer 3 - Oh What A Game!

AdvantagesGreat football game better than FIFA 2004

Disadvantagesbad licensing

"Pro Evoultion Soccer in my opinion is the best football game ever to be brought out on any console ever, yes I know that sounds cheesy, but people I'm being serious. Pro Evo's graphics are very classy, ok I've good to admit there not that different from the other two Pro Evo's, but still they have improved. Gameplay The gameplay on this game is just pure class it's not to hard and it's not to easy, I would have to say star 1 difficulty can't ..." Read review

Football's Coming Home! Review with images

Advantagesone of the best football games ever

DisadvantagesCommentry is repetitive and annoying

"...SECOND BEST GAME EVER!" (behind pro evolution spccer 4). There are so many improvments from the previous two Pro Evolution games. The gameplay is so much more smother than all the other football games, passes can be made from one side of the pitch to the other with just a simple press of a button. Tackling is much more better as well. There are lots of tricks to perform on the ball as well. 360 degrees spinning drag back, lobbing, step overs, ..." Read review

Pro Evo 2-0 FIFA Review with images

AdvantagesInnovative, brilliant gameplay

DisadvantagesLack of official names, kits, players and stadiums

"...the third outing for the Pro Evolution Soccer series hence the title Pro Evolution Soccer 3. Pro Evo is quite different from FIFA in terms of gameplay instead of feeling like running through water in FIFA in PES3 you feel like you are really playing football. In Pro Evolution Soccer 3 there are a few game modes here they are. Match Mode: In this mode you can have an exhibition match or a penalty kick match. League Mode: Select 16 nations ..." Read review

Pro Evo Soccer, fires past Fifa to victory

AdvantagesThe most up to date graphics, and stunning gameplay

DisadvantagesPoor commentry

"well what can i say pro Evolution Soccer is by far the best football game i have ever played on the ps2, well the best football game i have ever played on all consoles! the initial thought on Pro Evolution Soccer (Pro) is by many first time buyers to be out of the league compared to the Fifa series. However this is far from the case. Many people consider this to be the case because lets face it Fifa has been around for quite some time now, cared ..." Read review

A game worth getting RSI over

AdvantagesGreat playability, almost everyone who plays games plays it , fun

Disadvantagescheesy comentary, not as many teams as fifa, graphics arent too brilliant

"...choose from. Fifa 2004 or Pro Evo 3. If you are stupid enough to buy a game because it has better graphics then you deserve to waste your money on fifa. Harsh? wells its damn well true! The list of why this game is good is endless but ill keep it (reasonably) short: - Respect! Thats what you will earn from your mates if you master this game. Isnt it fun to beat all of your mates? However if you dont manage to master it you will be laughed at. ..." Read review

PES SCORES AGAIN

Advantagesbest footie game around, very playable

Disadvantageslack of license, not a big step up from pro evolution soccer 2

"Pro Evolution Soccer 3 (PES 3) is easily the most realistic and enjoyable football game available, well ahead of FIFA 2004, but it is not a perfect game. There are now four leagues within the master league option providing an almost unlimited lifespan. The menu screens are very similar to those of PES 2 so any fans of the series will find it easy to navigate the game. The menu music has improved tremendously, doing away with that moronic trance ..." Read review

GAME PLAY GALORE

AdvantagesMINDBLOWINGLY REALISTIC

DisadvantagesEARLY SHOWERS!!!!!

"Pro evo soccer 3, when someone asks me to play this game I have never said no. That is how good it is- it has made me miss lectures, work, television programmes, it is so good it might possibly take over your life. Konami have created the first football game to realistically represent football, it really does make you feel like you are either watching a game on TV or actually playing the game. As you can tell im a bit hooked on the game!!! The game ..." Read review

Best Football game ever made !!

Advantageslooks great,plays great,best football game ever!

Disadvantageslicensing

"Pro Evolution Soccer 3 is the sequels to 1 and 2 and has become the best football game ever. It is continued to be rivaled by the Fifa games but as owner of both Fifa 2004 and Pro Evolution 3 the latter wins by a mile! Pro Evolution 3 is made by Konami and they have made vast improvements on the past two versions. Firstly, the latest instalment looks fantastic. Players look so realistic. You can really tell who is who just by looking at their faces ..." Read review
