Summary: Despite being vastly superior to any previous PES, it's still dreadful! Goalkeepers can't catch, no one can control the ball (especially under pressure!), shooting is terrible and often completely random (especially under pressure!), free kicks are pointless, there's no power bar for penalty kicks and yet you can still miss the goal (completely random unless you kick it straight down the middle), referees will send you off for getting the ball and on top of all else it's...
Summary: A definite improvement over PES2008 and still better than Fifa but only just. It is let down a little by people with dodgy connections online which ruin the game but all the other modes a better than ever.
Summary: All the hype over Fifa and everyone is forgetting what football is meant to be about, its clearly about the gameplay. This is where pro evo is still the more dominant driving force. 08 was a clear dissapointment only because of the frame rate issues but this year konami have fixed the problems and allowed the free flowing football to occur. Ive played fifa a number of times and still i dont get the satisfaction of scoring a weel worked goal then i do in pro evo.
Summary: Over all it has the potential to be a great game but it just doesnt do it for me. The game just has to much of an arcade feeling to it not realistic at all. When I play fifa 09 I feel as if I am actually watching a real soccer game the players are that life like. In PES the stadiums are to dark, the players all move the same and at the same speed. Were as fifa 09 you got slow players and players that could break through the defense with just there speed.
Summary: This game is definitely better than 08 but it still has too many things wrong to count: referees are still too strict, the player you control has a mind of his own, the keeper cant hold the ball, players frequently fall over for no reason whatsoever and its one of the most infuriating games in the world! Your probably wondering why I gave this horrible, terrible and catastrophic game a 7, theres only one reason: Become A Ledgend mode.
Summary: This is by far the best pro evolution yet. This game combines beauty with great AI and amazing game play. If you are a true soccer fan you will be in love with this game. I have not been able to find one thing wrong with the game, and of course not all the teams are licensed but you still have their colors and their real players it just dust say chelsea for example.
Summary: I just picked up my copy yesterday (along with my free scarf because I pre-ordered) and was totally pleased with the new version for 2009. The graphics were awesome and so was the gameplay. The Champions League campaign is exactly how the real version is, with more licensed teams and original music. This game is a must buy if your looking for a more realistic soccer game.
Summary: Man..I think some of you guys who have rated this game are playing the wrong PES!!..yes this game has drawbacks..same as most games do , but its by far the best PES yet, its all about gamplay and in this version the Ai is much more advanced, making runs into space, etc, it does a far better job. You cant just leg it down the wing and score for a header now you will get closed down.
