    Pro Evolution Soccer is a soccer simulation developed by Konami Computer Entertainment Tokyo and published by Konami. It is the first game in the popular Pro Evolution Soccer franchise. The game is seen as a spiritual successor to the International Superstar Soccer series of soccer games, and in fact it was made by the same team of developers headed by Shingo "Seabass" Takatsuka. The game attempts to authentically recreate the sport of soccer in video game format, and offers several different gameplay modes to the player. The game was originally released in 2001 and received a number of positive reviews, holding an average rating of 93 on Metacritic. The game is known as World Soccer Winning Eleven 5 in Japan.


    The Pro Evolution Soccer franchise is renowned for lacking complete team, player and stadium licensing when compared to EA Sports' FIFA series. The first game is no exception, lacking licensed teams and stadiums, instead opting for sound-alike alternatives in many cases. The game does, however, feature FIFpro licensing, resulting in a significant proportion of player names (although by no means all) being correctly portrayed in-game.
