Summary: The challenge of designing a football game is to achieve the balance between the theatre of realism and arcade controls. PES 2009 achieves this, even though it is far from perfection. http://teachergamer.blogspot.com/2011/04/pes-2009-review.html
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!
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. The Master League is miles better than anything on the Fifa games
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...
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.
Summary: Far better then 2008 in every way. Slowdown in the replays and on the pitch has been fixed, you can put in your own music and chants, not hard to get the updates off the net, animation of players is spot on, Champions League included etc. Could go on.
Summary: I can't believe it, truly the King id dead. It's awful this year. Here are the low points: * No realism in the player movements, they turn without any reference to reality, turning 180 degrees in a heartbeat.
Summary: Good PES, but doesn't take a giant leap forward from last years series, unlike what FIFA 09' has done compared to FIFA 08 Good but more than likely I'll use FIFA as my main football simulator, and its been a while since I've done that.
