"Pro Evolution Soccer 6" is a soccer (or football, to Brits) game available on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 2 and PC. It is part of the "Pro Evolution Soccer" series, which has an ongoing rivalry with the FIFA games. "Pro Evolution" offers very realistic gameplay, and things like timing and the player's statistics have a notable effect on your success. As with all multiplayer games, the competitive element is what keeps you playing, and it can be very frustrating if you lose a lot.

The most important piece of advice is to use the game's practice mode. Even though it may seem dull, it has been put there specifically to help you master the game. You can improve your free kick technique and work on things like shot timing and passing. The game heavily relies on intuitive skills like those needed for the "Power" bar, which goes up when you go to shoot or cross. It's easy to mistime it and mess up. Practice mode gives you room to experiment and really nail the basics. Your shots also may be flying wide because your player was off-balance when you were shooting. Practice different ways to approach a shot and see how it affects the trajectory.
It is tempting when playing to skip over the formation and squad settings, but they have a large effect on the efficiency of your team during the match. Look at the opposing team's formation and think about how it matches up with yours. If the opposing team has three players in attack, make sure your defenders are positioned to deal with it effectively. In attack, think about exposing holes in the defence. If one of the opposing team's defenders is slightly set back, or closer in to the centre of the pitch, think about the ways you can exploit it. Also, think about which players are covering the positions. If one of your strikers is quite slow, for example, you should use him to hold up the ball and win headers, and not try to make many attacking runs with him.
Pass It Around
When you watch a real soccer game, most of the game is taken up by the teams' moving the ball around in an attempt to find an opening in the defence. When you play "Pro Evolution Soccer," people will try to make gargantuan runs with one player and be more frantic in their attempt to score. The more efficient technique is to move the ball around like a real team. Be patient when you're waiting for an opening and keep passing the ball around. Timing plays a huge part in "PES 6," and you will build up a rhythm through passing and give more players chances to shake their defenders. Use through balls when passing to your strikers. A through ball is a pass hit a little ahead of the recipient, which he runs to collect. If your player picks up the pass, he often can get a good shot on goal.
