I firmly believe that Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer series is the greatest in the history of video games. And if you disagree with me, not only are you wrong, but I refuse to acknowledge your existence.
I’ve played every one in the PES series, which explains why I’m currently as excited as a small boy on Christmas Eve â€“ yes, PES6 is about to be released (on Oct 1st, to be precise) and I can’t wait. No football game plays as realistically as Pro Evo â€“ by comparison, EA’s FIFA series (FIFA 1007 is about to be released too) is arcade rubbish. My only gripe is the lack of an Xbox version – it’s out on PS2 and Xbox 360, but not the original Xbox, a cunning move that forces PES fans to upgrade to a 360. Oh well, as a PES addict, I have to get my fix, so I’m going to have to buy a 360. PRE-ORDER IT
