The MAG: Play - WHOLE NEW BALL GAME.

PRO EVOLUTION SOCCER 3 (PlayStation 2, Konami)

THIS is the latest in a long line of football games from Konami -and without a doubt it's the best.

Strangely titled Winning Eleven in Japan, the Pro Evo series has been gaining more and more fans in the UK since its inception.

And now Konami has one more -me.

I've always been a FIFA fan because the FIFA games have all the right players and all the teams.

The Pro Evo series isn't licensed so Arsenal, for example, become North London Red. And Craig Bellamy, the centre-forward for Newcastle Utd, is called Bellasie.

This irksome point has, to be honest, always stopped me from enjoying the games themselves.

But if you take some time to master the controls, this is a joy to play. It seems to flow better than any other football game I've played -making it more like a simulation than a game.

The graphics are OK and the commentary, while basic, isn't bad. Lets hope more people start to enjoy it.

Graphics ................7/10 Sound .................. 8/10 Gameplay ..............10/10 Overall ................. 9/10
