CVG has posted their preview of Pro Evolution Soccer 2008.
"Fast players like Ronaldo can really outstrip their plodding counterparts - it's not absurd, but you stand more chance of bursting past a full back than in PES6. There's a real advantage in having, say, Aaron Lennon running the wing rather than a lead-footed Ivan Campo, making your key players more effective in their specialist areas. On the flip-side - as is the trend in successive Pro Evo's - defenders can exploit their physicality to blunt razor-sharp runs. Playing as Man United vs Inter Milan, little Anderson was being spun every time he crashed into leggy Vieira - while dogged tacklers like John Terry dominate in goalmouth scrambles. The cheeky q tackles and fiddly slides of PES6 are complemented by more realistic scrambles, with desperate hacks at the ball and some naughty shirt-pulling."
