Description

PES 2008 updates the clubs and players for 2007/2008, this time including some never before featured clubs like croatian club Dinamo Zagreb. Gameplay is updated and feels more natural in a way that goalkeepers won't be able to easily catch every ball, players will stumble on each other, slip and try to keep balance, be able to simulate fouls and hope they don't get caught by the referee, and so on. Although this time English League has imaginary emblems for unlicensed clubs such as Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal and the other, many other clubs still remain with proper insignias.

Gameplay is somewhat easier and players won't kick ball so high when you hold the kicking button for too long, and dribbling is corrected and enhanced in comparison to the last game. Modes are as you can imagine them, pretty much the same... you have League (English, Italian, Spanish and the other - no German league, though), Master League, Exhibition, Training, Edit Mode and plethora of other options.

You get 59 music tracks which you can assign to play on specific part of the game (main menu, league menu, stats screen and so on). This is the first game in the series to appear on the PlayStation 3 platform.
