The Pro Evolution Soccer 5 (often just PES5) box-art features Chelsea's John Terry and Barcelona's (Arsenal's at the time) Thierry Henry. The game was available for PC, PlayStation 2 and Xbox. The game had a much slower pace than its predecessors which surprised and angered many PES fans but was welcomed by others who thought 4 was too fast. However it was the first to introduce the online mode on all consoles. The game was infamous for the referee halting play for very tedious fouls.
PES5 was also the first Pro Evolution to appear on the PSP and Xbox and despite it being slowed down it is considered by many players the best Pro Evolution game due to its realism and amazing step up from PES 4, these included:
- More realistic Preset Faces
- The ability to customize kits by overlaying patterns and combine 1st and 2nd kits.
- The introduction of snow
- More Edit appearance options such as untucked shirts and under-shorts
- More realistic player interaction (such as cold air being visible out of the players mouth)
- Online play
- Japan and South Korea remain the only licensed national teams
- Chelsea and Arsenal the first English teams to be licensed from the English League
- Ligue 1, Serie A and Eredivisie fully licensed.
- Celtic, Rangers, Porto, Galatasaray and many more licensed.
This was also the last installment to feature the Bundesliga.
