Pro evolution soccer 2008

Next to FIFA 2008, Pr Evolution Soccer 2008 is one of the most popular video games on the market. Marketed for the Playstation 2, Playstation 3, PSP and Nintendo DS, this game is produced by Teamvision, implementing a new adaptive AI system. This system adapts according to the way a gamer plays, building a database of attacks, counter attacks, and defensive errors. It was designed to play more like the game in real life, including all the tactical skills a player needs.

A glitch has been found, however, in the Playstation 3 version of the game. There is an issue with the graphics, although, according to Konami, the game’s manufacturer, this issue only occurs on televisions that are not high definition. There are a few downloads available via the Internet to fix these problems, including a problem with slow movement on one of the game systems. There is also a regional lockout for X-box users with certain systems which has caused some controversy in the gaming world.

Some of the new features for Pro Evolution 2008 include: improved graphics that shows facial animations and clothing movement; fifteen stadiums for next generation versions and twenty-four stadiums for the PS2; better dribble techniques; diving and shirt pulling; and world and tour and community mode expressly for the PS2. It also offers gamers the opportunity to play licensed and unlicensed leagues that includes the names and attributes of real life players. The game also includes seven national teams.

Gamers can also play in a separate league with eighteen generic teams. All of them can be fully edited and then integrated into the league when ready. Anyone interested in the game, but who have never previously played it can download a demo version onto their personal computer to get a feel for the graphics and the way the game plays. Players can also upload their scored and play head to head with other gamers via the Internet, taking their experience up an extra notch.

There is also a companion magazine produced by Konami that offers gamer’s tips and tricks for playing the game on the variety systems that it was released for. It also includes interviews with real life players. Both issue number one and number two are currently available online and can be downloaded for free. The magazine and website also offer their subscribers competitions and contests they can enter to win prizes such as PES Mobiles and Nokia NSeries multimedia computer.
