Pro Evolution Soccer 6 (also known as Winning Eleven 10 and Winning Eleven X for Xbox 360 in Japan, Winning Eleven: Pro Evolution Soccer 2007 in the United States) is one of Konami's highly successful Pro Evolution Soccer franchise. Released on 27 October 2006 for the PlayStation 2, Xbox 360, and PC platforms[1] and following on the Nintendo DS and PlayStation Portable on 1 December 2006, Pro Evolution Soccer 6 is the 6th edition of the series for the PlayStation 2, 2nd for the PlayStation Portable and 4th for PC. This year features Pro Evolution Soccer 6 making its debut on the Nintendo DS and the Xbox 360. The Xbox 360 version features improved graphics, but retains gameplay similar to the other console versions. The edit mode has been stripped down for the Xbox 360 release, due to time restrictions. The graphics engine on the PC does not utilise the next-gen 360 engine but will again be a direct conversion of the PlayStation 2 engine.

A Bundesliga license was supposed to be a feature of the game but Konami were forced to remove the Bundesliga license, which means the Bundesliga is not present in PES6, not even as a series of unlicensed teams.

Other clubs

  • PES United
  • WE United
  • There are 18 teams (Team A, Team B etc. all the way to Team R) that have identical players. This is because Konami did not acquire the license for the German Bundesliga and had to replace the teams with these squads.

New features

International Challenge Mode

PES6 marks the first time the International Challenge Mode has been included on the PES Series. Usually this is seen on the Japanese version - Winning Eleven - where you play as Japan and take them through the qualifiers to the International Cup and then attempt to win it. On PES, however, you have the ability to choose any playable nation on the game. The user can only play the qualifiers from Europe, South America, and North/Central America. Although the tournament is not licensed, the qualifiers have a lot of similarities to the FIFA World Cup qualification process:

  • A cross-playoff is used between a South American team and an Oceanian team, and a North American team plays an Asian team.
  • There is the same number of qualifiers on the game from each region as there is in the real World Cup. e.g., 14 qualify from Europe.
  • The qualifiers from South America are the same - 10 teams play each other twice with the top 4 qualifying and 5th place entering the cross-playoff.
  • The qualifiers from North America are the same - 6 teams play each other twice with the top 3 qualifying and 4th place entering the cross-playoff.

Team selection can be changed before each game and the player can choose from any player with the eligible nationality.

It should be noted that there are many more unlicensed national teams available in International Challenge Mode featuring full squads. Still those teams can not be selected to be used in International Challenge or any other game mode. These teams are Bosnia and Herzegovina, Estonia, Israel, Panama, Honduras, Guatemala, Jamaica, Bolivia, Venezuela, China, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, North Korea, Uzbekistan, and Bahrain. The International Challenge mode is only available in the PlayStation 2 and PC versions of PES6. The Xbox 360 and PSP versions do not include this mode.

Random Selection Match

Also new to PES6 is the Random Selection Match. In this mode, the user can pick either four clubs/nations or one region/league. Once selected, the computer picks a random selection of players from the teams or region for the player's squad. The lineup is selected automatically, although players can choose to let the computer to pick another random selection. This was not included in the Xbox 360 version, presumably because of time restrictions.

PES shop

  • Players are available as always, but there have been many more added (all unlicensed, but based on real players). It's not only retired "legendary players" that can be bought, although Kerlon and Freddy Adu, who are still active, are both available.
  • Costumes can be bought. The Ostrich and Raptor costumes have the players riding them. The Penguin costume has the player in a penguin suit. When riding the raptors, they shoot, header, control, pass and do all the hard work, but their shooting ability is much less than a normal player.
  • Gameplay frames, new hairstyles, new goal celebrations, and new stadiums are other new features available in the PES Shop.
  • The PES Shop is present on all versions of the game, with the exception of the Xbox 360 version

The Reebok Cup

PES6 is sponsored by Reebok and the Reebok Cup is an uneditable knockout tournament with 16 teams. The user can choose the teams involved (all teams are eligible) and one team can enter more than once.

All the matches are played at a random ground with all the Advertising Boards showing the Reebok logo. Only the Reebok ball is available to play with.

This is the key to unlocking the classic teams on the Xbox 360 version of PES6. The teams available are shown above.

Network

Groups have been introduced on the PES Network. A player can join/create a group that can gain points by playing together. Groups can play each other in rival matches. If a player creates a group, they manage who's in and who's out, the team name, and who else can allow others to join and matches. A player can join a group by applying to join or accepting an invitation from another player. If the leader accepts, they are in the group. Only ten are allowed in one group at first, but there can potentially be 30 in a group at one time. Groups can reach levels with the highest level to progress to is Level 14. When you achieve higher levels, you will unlock different costumes (penguin, dinosaur, and ostrich) and classic national teams. Also, you can achieve extra member spaces in your group when you go up in level.

The Network capabilities have since been relinquished.

Critical response

In 2006, Pro Evolution Soccer 6 got a perfect 10/10 score in the Official PlayStation 2 Magazine UK, which beat FIFA 07 (9/10 in the same magazine). However, the PSP version of the game ranked beneath the FIFA 07 PSP version due to slow loading times and an incomplete editor. Hyper's Eliot Fish commends the game for its "tighter dribbling [and] refined Master League" but criticises it for its commentary.[1]

Trivia

  • West Ham United's John Paintsil is shown as Pantsil and his name on shirt is Pantsil, due to him being registered as John Pantsil instead of Paintsil by the Home Office when he got his work permit to play for West Ham.
  • Oliver Kahn is named "Huber" in the game and is 40 years old as a result of Kahn holding the rights to his image.
