Summary: What should a game be judged on - GAMEPLAY, GAMEPLAY, GAMEPLAY !!! I have been playing PES since PES 6 (which I think is a great game), but on a whim I decided to fork out a fiver and buy PES 5 - a game I had never played before. I couldn't believe how great it is ! It's better than every other PES since and that includes PES 2013 - the players play and move like real footballers and this is as close to the real thing as you can get without putting you boots on - which...

With unrivaled gameplay this game is very addictive and hours seem to fly by when playing the game. The game provides a constant challenge with the smart AI and it proves to be very difficult to take it around players even with a world class player.
