Jim: 2008 was absolute bullshit and the online play on the 360 was a laggy nightmare. I bought it and played it for about five hours then threw it in a drawer and went back to PES ’06.
Roberto Spiralli: The current PES is some bullshit; it’s simply stopped being fun. There was a logic to the previous versions, from PES3 onwards, that was compromised in PES6 and killed off in 2008. Supposedly 2009 is a back to the drawing board affair, which they say about FIFA every year and which to date hasn’t stopped that franchise disappearing down the shitter. PES 2009 will be 50/50 chance of rebirth or death. Meanwhile, all I want is a decent footie game to play.
Jeff LeVine: I’m skeptical that PES 2009 is going to be significantly different from 2008 or 2007. I only played 2008 on the Wii and it was fun but a little too shallow.
