Guide to ISS 3 on the PlayStation 2
Designed as a companion title for Konamis world-renowned Pro Evolution Soccer series, ISS3 is a more arcade-orientated game than its stable-mate. Featuring a full selection of volleys, passes, flick-ons and rasping shots, ISS3 pits more than 90 FIFPro-endorsed international and club squads against each other in a variety of friendly and tournament matches. ISS3 also breaks new ground with the inclusion of a Mission Mode wherein victorious players are awarded points after every match or by betting on the outcome of a two-player game, which can be used to build stadiums and unlock a wealth of special options and features.
ISS3 also extends this innovative approach to its on-field play, with KCE Osaka debuting an all-new Close-Up mode. During the course of a match, an icon will flash above the head of a player as he nears the edge of the oppositions penalty area. On pressing L1, the game seamlessly zooms in on the attacking player, changing the view to directly behind him and giving the user more control over his actions. By holding down the R2 button on the controller, feints, spins and skill moves can be used as ISS3 players attempt to beat defenders in their way, while the Mission Mode also holds the key to a number of additional tricks and moves.
The true beauty of ISS3, however, is its ability to grow with the player. While the controls are designed to introduce novice fans to the football genre, the intuitive use of passes, through-balls and first-time shots means that precision one-touch play is also possible, while the individual stats attributed to each of the instantly recognisable football stars can also be used to the players advantage.
The game also benefits from the most detailed visuals in an ISS title to date. KCE Osaka has ensured that the sports most famous names are instantly recognisable both in terms of appearance and trademark moves, with key players particularly adept as free kicks, while others enjoy enviable distribution skills and can make seemingly impossible defence-splitting passes with ease.
With its four-player mode, professional commentary and stadium announcements, ISS3 is the most accessible yet entertaining arcade football title to date. Its deft moves, intelligent player AI and incredible visuals and sound combine to create a truly immersive and always entertaining football title guaranteed to leave its rivals trailing in its wake.
