The third installment of the Pro Evolution Soccer series, with improved graphics & a bigger master league. Because the Master League is so big, it's split it into 4 zones, with 2 divisions & cup competitions in each zone. Other than most of the Italian teams, club names are fictional, as are many of the players.However, the game has an improved edit mode, so you can edit the team's name, flag, logo, the team shirts, stadium.

You can use the 'shop' system to unlock hidden features such as classic teams.The game also has a training mode, and a challenge mode, in which you have to dribble around cones has quick has you can. Replays can be fast-forwarded and rewound, and the view can be rotated. The advantage rule is now implemented, so a foul will only stop play if the fouled team suffers for it.

The PS2 version of Pro Evolution Soccer 3 appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.


While football games usually have a famous player on the cover, Pro Evolution Soccer 3 features the characteristic head of Pierluigi Collina on the cover of some versions. Collina is probably the world's best known football referee.
