PES 2012 review

GamesRadar
24 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Finding someone who has purchased and played both PES and FIFA in the last few years is rarer than club loyalty in the modern day footballer. You're either into one or the other. Simple as. Or at least it was until this season's head-to-head. Y'see, even though I switched allegiances from PES to FIFA during the 2009/2010 season and rarely looked back, PES 2012 serves up enough excitement and personality to make me consider playing both this year.
  • Pros: Master League is mad but great, Passing is much improved, Instant football fun awaits
  • Cons: Online players are still nails, Lack of licenses, Stiff animations are odd

Test PES 2012

Generation NT
11 December 2011
  • Conclusion: PES 2012 évolue, mais il faut du temps pour que les bonnes idées de Konami s'articulent entre elles, que l'évolution trouve son rythme de croisière en apportant chaque année de nouveaux changements, de nouveaux ajouts. Cette mouture 2012, très inspirée par la précédente porte cet espoir mais souligne combien le chemin est long pour gommer encore bien des défauts.
  • Pros: Un gameplay plus vivant, Le contrôle des équipiers, prometteur, La construction des attaques, Le soin apporté à la modélisation des joueurs et des stades, L'amélioration des modes carrières
  • Cons: La défense et son inaction, Difficulté à prendre en main le contrôle des équipiers en match, De la frustration générale, Le duo de commentateurs

  • Excerpt: The world of videogame football has taken great strides over the years, from simple pass-and-kick arcade games to the all out global showstoppers we have today. One franchise that continues to win over the hearts of true soccer enthusiasts is Pro Evolution Soccer, and the 2012 edition shows no signs of slowing down.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 Review

GamerNode
22 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Pro Evolution Soccer is back for another year of simulation football, and with it are the usual host of improvements and changes made to a sports game each year. Most of the changes made to PES 2012 improve the game’s mechanics, but it still stumbles in a few areas, making it a pretty good simulation of the sport rather than a truly great one. Fans who have stuck by the series will continue to do so, as this year’s offering is still worth their time.

PES 2012 PS3 Review

Console Obsession
18 October 2011
  • Excerpt: As EA’s FIFA series has pulled further and further ahead of Konami’s once dominant Pro Evolution Soccer titles, I’ve got to admit that there’s been a little sadness in my heart. I’m from a generation that spent many of their formulative gaming years absolutely enthralled by the ISS and Pro Evo titles on the PS1 and PS2.

  • Excerpt: Konami's soccer franchise is back for its annual outing. Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 takes gamers to a virtual soccer field where the guys at Konami have been competing like hell for the right to claim the best soccer game in the world. EA's FIFA franchise has, at least by measure of aggregate review scores, taken the lead. Does that all change this year?

PES 2012 Review (Playstation 3)

Gamers Daily News
13 October 2011
  • Summary: It definitely has its own merits and flaws and stands strongly in the market. The AI and referees do appear better. The game balances individual play (tricks, etc) with team play (teammate control, etc) a bit better and hopefully they’ll continue on in that as well as general improvements.
