Rest in peace. No football game will ever match the sheer fun of PS2 era PES.

True. But let's be real. PES has been trash for a while. Controls have been terrible for years now and all the focus is on animation rather than feel. There are no good major soccer games anymore.

PS1 era was even better.. my best floorball memories are from there.. world cup games as Well were fun. There were other football licenses as well and the competition was healthy and good

We need this model more than FIFA EA take notes.

Get ready for PES prices to skyrocket. Those are some of the best soccer games.

You forgot ISS before they added the Pro Evo

RaidenBlack4d ago (Edited 4d ago )

The pre 2008 PES stuffs are a bit varied due to different licenses, region and platforms. There were ISS, Goal Storm, ISS Pro, ISS Pro Evo, MLS GameNight ...
