Well this is the interesting part,in PES 6 the game is more slower than PES 5,but this is good because it is even closer to real life matches,the movements and the animations are stunning,from the first minute of the kick off i have seen how different is and better than PES 5,another amazing addition is the quick play when you gain a free kick,by pressing L1 + R1 at the same time you can make a quick pass before the opponent team goes back to defend.The shots are all refined and worked and they are more realistic,and the pace of the game is even better reflecting real life matches,no more crazy sprints,or easy 1 - 2`s
when you passing the ball to a teammate,and the shots are more hard to get you must facing your player to the right direction if you want your shot to have any chances to find the target,the referees will allow even tough tackles without giving any card,and the advantage to the attacking team, the icon that showed that you have advantage is gone and the referee can punish you for a marking on an opponent after the ball goes out of play or for a goal kick.Good players will not have any trouble passing the defence,and going for a goal,whilst less good players will have a hard time to do that.The tackles are also more realistic,and the markings,after a hard tackle the player that received the marking will go down in a very beautiful shown animation.Free kicks are beautiful compared to PES 5,and the atmosphere inside the stadiums is fantastic.The crowd is cheering when you going good inside the field,and they are booing when your team strugles to get a shot on the opponent area.The commentary is the old same Trevor and Peter but is has been improved a little,but no field reporter.Also there is new entrance scene showing the players from the 2 teams and in the middle the referee and his assistants.

That`s it hope i answered few of your questions about PES 6.
Good read, in the other teams C how many teams are you allowede to create
Excellent. Really looking forward to Friday.
Any 'awful' goalkeeping moments you've witnessed yet?
So, in theory, increasing the goalkeepers statistics should make them less likely to make stupid errors, unless Konami have screwed up the programming and its a fault within the game.
I like it how the goalkeepers make errors, much like in real life. I just dont want to play any 6-5 type games all through possible goalkeeper errors.
I just hope my weekly 2 player challenges dont suffer too much.
Isslander: Recognized, but still fringe.
Cheers Schumi04. The most important part, to me, is the gameplay and then comes the tactics. All people, who have played PES6 including you, have said that the gameplay has been much improved, so I am sure now.......
