IGN.com reports that the new PES feature a completely new way of playing. Adaptive AI forces players to constantly rethink their tactics. For example, if you prefer to run the ball down the wing and knock in a cross to a tall centre forward, your opponent will quickly change their tactics to close down the wide players and mark your hitmen more heavily. of course, strong international and club squads will be able to counter your tactics faster and more effectively than less skilled clubs.
The improved AI also forces players to take a much wider view of the game and real use the full width and breadth of their team. In addition, cheap free kicks are a thing of the past because the opposing defence will close down runs faster, which prevents players from passing a ball into the box and tapping a shot in from short range. Other improvements promised for PES 2008 includes improved greater close control.However, the most noticeable improvement PES 2008 will offer over its predecessors is the graphics.
