Hi, ive been playing pro evo and iss pro games for years, even when it was on the super nintendo called 'superstar soccer deluxe'.
Pro evo 4 was top, really really good, i got 5 just and found it an absolute let down! the main bad point about it for me was that whenever you recieve a pass the player always takes like a second or 2 to get the ball under control and at his feet, it's like the ball control is really loose. This was the first thing i noticed and how bad it was compared to pro evo 4.
As for everything else well its EXACTLY the same as pro evo 4, for me the only thing that has improved is the speed in which the ball travels, it seems now when you hit a shot you really hit a shot, but from where i'm sitting it seems liked they've done absolutely nothing to make this game improve.
I was dissapointed mainly how everything is the same, stadiums, commentry, boring kits (i know you can edit them but it can take a while), really lame crowd graphics etc.
My opinion is if you have pro evo 4, then just keep updating that e.g player transfers and kit looks, because pro evo 5 is nothing different at all, if not worse.
I'm taking my copy of pro evo 5 back to the shop to get the money back and i'm going to buy fifa06 instead, for the first time since fifa 97, i figure theres no harm in trying it, as this was a total let down, much love to pro evo 4 though! i will still play it no doubt!
