  • 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: It's a very ordinary game of football. Every thing that is performed feels the same as the previous action. Dribbling, passing etc...it's just not up to the standards of Fifa 09 and never has been since 2008.

  • Excerpt: PES 2009 is great improvement on 2008. The gameplay and feel to the game is much more like what pro evo fans have grown to expect and the poor showing of the previous game. There are 2 notable additions to this update, the official licence to the UEFA Champions League in the introduction of a new...

  • Excerpt: As per usual PES 2009 does not contain the licensing of many teams but this is a minor inconvenience on the game in which the gameplay is very good.

A decent game

  • Excerpt: This game looks and plays a little neater than the 2008 version. The gameplay is also a little more fluid than it's FIFA rival (which is a little clunky this time round) and this in my opinion keeps it just ahead in the on going Pro Evo / FIFA battle.

  • Excerpt: I have been a hardcore Pro Evo fan since the very start, it has been an essential part of my life and all my friends are exactly the same. I can't help being bias because I treat pro evo like a money grabbing son, I love it to death and I will always support it but boy sometimes it can be the most...

  • Excerpt: Pro Evo 2009 For football fans this is always a tough choice - do I go with the graphically pleasing fifa 09 or the technically brilliant pes 09? Well, I own both so hopefully I can give a neutral (although I do have a favourite) opinion.

  • Excerpt: While it may not be intentional, PES2009 amazingly captures the ups and downs - and the sublime and the ridiculous - of this way of life we call football, but largely not in a good way.

PES 2009 is worth getting, but there are still old flaws which just havent been removed.

  • Excerpt: Konami's latest installation of the hugely popular and successful Pro Evolution Soccer series is something of a slight let down. For those fans that were expecting a huge improvement and difference, from the 2008 version, will feel they have been short changed some what. Why is this?

Good Game

  • Excerpt: I found this year's Pro Evolution Soccer to be a large improvement over last year's effort. The introduction of the new Become a Legend and Champions League mode definitely add more longevity to the game.
