Konami brings this fun soccer simulation game to the world, Winning Eleven 2007. It is worth distinguishing the year of creation, as there is a later version of a game with the same name (Winning Eleven 2013). Soccer games regularly get released (with Electronic Arts and the FIFA games getting released almost annually at this point), so fans are never without options for playing through gaming history. It just depends what tournament they want to see played out. Winning Eleven is centered around the PUMA cup.
Players will take their teams through the PUMA cup, determining which teams make it and which teams don’t depending on their match ups. Brazil, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands… all the participators of the PUMA cup are available here to load and watch in all their glory.
The graphics are extremely dated at this point, though they are rendered in three dimensional views. The game is understandably older, and it did an effective job in its time, but there may be better options available for current soccer fans. The primary reason to go back to the 2007 game might be to play with those teams, as they were then, as this can be something of the fun of soccer simulation.
Winning Eleven 2007 didn’t do anything necessarily ground breaking, but it is a decent soccer simulation game from Konami. Fans at the time welcomed the opportunity to play through the PUMA cup, and there may be some fans who think it’s worth the play through today.
