Think we may have done one of these in the past , but with a number of new members , probably time to reassess

Apologies if your favourite doesnt appear , but as only you'd be voting for it , it doesn't really matter does it? :wink:

I assume you are chucking PES in with ISS there? They are actually independent series in their own right, and developed by different dev teams (KCEO for ISS and KCET for PES).

Just making sure ;)

TBH I thought Pro Evo was an evolution of ISS

(too late to change the poll now!)

So who developed the 2 games that were called ISS Pro Evo?

KCET, but I wouldn't put them in the same series as PES.

ISS Pro Evolution 2 on the PS1 is still an excellent game, the PES games on PS2 just get better and better, whereas Sensi was great, it's now essentially defunct so ISS gets the vote!

Hey, can I join in the nitpicking? Are you including Microprose Soccer in with the Sensi series? ;)

Seriously, despite many happy hours on the C64 version of Microprose Soccer, it has to be ISS...

I actually almost included International Socer , mainly for it's spiritual successor Emlyn Hughes , but I had to draw the line somewhere

Has to be ISS/PES. One game I buy every year without fail...

I voted ISS on the basis it progressed to PES.

I loved ISS 64 on the N64. The first time I ever managed to win all leagues and cups on the hardest settings.

Never really played ISS, but if that includes Pro Evo then I am definately going for FIFA. I really don't understand th Pro Evo loving. It is poorly presented tosh. It's only snobbery that has made it so successful.

Not that it's a better series, or anything ;)

PES

gets better every year and is a joy to play. Hard to start with and you have to put in the hours but once you do it's head and shoulders above any other football game / series.

Used to love the Kick Off series inc Goal and Player Manager and SWOS was great, but PES is the clear winner.
