Pro Evo 09 review by JSP on awaygoalsrule

Thanks to JSP on awaygoalsrule.com for the following review

Game looks very nice and plays well they know have licenses covering the Champions League and all the clubs involved. Problem still remains in the other teams in the main leagues aren’t licensed and as usual have random names that can make them hard to work out. Also, they don’t have the latest up to date transfers. The game was released at the start of October yet the transfers were well out of date i’m guessing any deal done in August wasn’t included. This means a bit of boring editing to try and bring it up to date.

Another problem I had was with the formations some of the teams formations don’t reflect how they actually play which means lots of editing to set them up how they normally would be. This is especially noticeable with teams like Chelsea and Barca who have changed there formations this season both still play the standard 4-3-3.

Gameplay

This was the bread and butter of the pro evo range and why for a long time it kicked FIFA’s back side. To me that all seems to have gone the passing isn’t as crisp as it used to be also players don’t turn as quickly. Also tackling any slide tackle is pretty much punished with a yellow and in some cases a Red Card. This can be for the smallest tackle in some cases where you actually win the ball. The refs have definetly made stricter which ruins the game abit especially when playing multiplayer. Also, some of the players have just been made stupidly good like Messi and Ronaldo. I know a lot of people when playing with friends used to enjoy the random pick so you didn’t just end up with Utd vs Barcelona every time. This now makes the game almost unplayable if your say Bologna and end up playing a top side your players just can’t keep up.

From a pro evo fan i’d say this is the most dissapointing one i’ve played since I opened Pro Evo 5 which was truely shocking after the daddy of all football games that was Pro Evo 4.

I’m considering trading the game in. It’s that bad something that i’d of considered blasphemous before playing this version it’s really really dissapointing.
