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: 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: 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: Can all Fifa zealots please stop posting your silly reviews, posing as Pro diehards when you probably never played it in your lives. F the media, Pro is back in effect and you better believe online is working at full tilt. The gameplay is excellent, Champs league is excellent, online excellent.
Summary: I Luv PES its so good the gameplay is amazing and the graphics are irreletive, they are good enough not 2 ruin the game. The gamelay is far supperior to fifa the players on fifa are 2 bumbly and clunky.
Summary: Fifa has far superior graphics, presentation and some really, really nice touches-example: the players warming up in the tunnel before kick off, and players numbers and names being announced over the tanoy-really help to build atmosphere. However.
Summary: I played the demo. Many times. If you want a football game that has great ball physics, player control, game pace, and off the ball player movement, this is the game for you. It's also fun to play...obviously.
