Conclusion: The amount of enjoyment that PES 2011 will give you depends on your desires. After a run-and-pass arcade footballer, then pick up PES. Anything else, then FIFA’s ahead by a long shot. PES lacks that final third of polish, but it’s a large improvement over the sorry state that was PES 2010. A competent football game, nothing else.
Excerpt: franchise has been dropping at an alarming rate. It felt like the developers could not decide what the game wanted to be -- simulation or arcade -- and therefore the end product became a confusing smorgasbord of both. In other words, this year's title needed to escape the gaming doldrums before the series as a whole was marginalized forever.
Pros: Excellent buildup play., Goals feel realistic., Player individuality.
Cons: Defenders are unfairly quick., Dumb AI teammates., Frustrating referees.
Excerpt: You have to feel sorry for the Pro Evolution Soccer series. Once considered to be the pinnacle of football gaming, it has lost a lot of its appeal in recent years for various reasons. As with all sporting titles these days, it has received its annual update and yet again goes head-to-head with EA’s FIFA series. Unfortunately I have to report that, yet again, it comes in second place.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Not long ago I was the biggest PES fan around. Not by size, but rather by my love for this series. Some of the best sports games during the Super NES and PS1 era were winning eleven/PES related, so my love should come as no surprise. But recently with FIFA taking over, my loyalty has shifted. FIFA 11 which I played nonstop for a couple of weeks now was superb.
Excerpt: UK REVIEW--The Pro Evolution Soccer series has been stuck in a rut for the past few years, with gameplay that has stagnated and a feature set that has failed to keep up with rival FIFA. Thankfully, Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 addresses these criticisms, with improved gameplay, new features such as the Online Master League, and a higher visual standard than ever before.
Pros: Deeper gameplay, New game modes such as Online Master League, Improved visuals and presentation, Excellent unlockable extras, A healthy assortment of customisation options, such as stadiums, team logos, and tricks
Cons: Lack of online content sharing, Too easy to foul, Still a lot of unlicensed teams, Weak commentary
Conclusion: In all PES 2011 is a very solid contender against its rival FIFA11. There is a fantastic sense of realism and the way the players go about there business on screen is smooth and glitch free. In terms of pick-up-and-play PES 2011 ticks the right boxes, definitely worth a look.
