Test PES 2011 - Pro Evolution Soccer PS3
26 January 2011
Conclusion: Quelques petits mots sur les graphismes quand même, et un gros bémol adressé à certaines animations qui auraient dû nous quitter depuis fort longtemps. Parce qu'avouons-le, nous en avons ras-le-bol de voir un attaquant coupable d'une faute coller ses deux pieds l'un contre l'autre en avançant ses bras pour signaler sa désapprobation (les habitués de la série depuis au moins les derniers opus PS2 sauront de quoi je parle).
Pros: Un gameplay délicieux de liberté (déplacements à 360°), De nouvelles animations bienvenues, Rythme de jeu plus réaliste, Les espaces intelligemment occupés, Des efforts faits au niveau de l'ambiance sonore
Cons: La caméra a du mal à suivre, D'anciennes animations à expulser, Les attaquants demandent trop peu le ballon, Certains commentaires hors-sujet, Ralentis systématiques et démarrant toujours trop tôt (pour les buts), Quelques problèmes de curseur, Absence d'un véritable mode training, Feintes sur le stick droit, gadget ?, Les arrêts de jeu tronqués qui hachent l'action
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: Poor Pro Evolution Soccer, you really have to feel for it. Long regarded as the football purists game, for those that wanted a game that played like the real thing even if it didn’t had the licenses and presentation slickness that FIFA had. But times have changed, and while Pro Evolution seemed to rest on its laurels, content that it was the superior playing game, FIFA has gone through a remarkable transformation.
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.
