Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 Review

Cheat Code Central
7 October 2009

Very deep and detailed soccer title.

Common Sense Media
3 August 2009
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this game is a continuation of the Winning Eleven soccer series by Konami, but branded differently depending on the market it's being sold in. As parents know, soccer is a very complicated sport where all team members are needed to win, so cooperation is essential. Mild cussing of the "hell" variety can be heard in the song lyrics, but the option does exist to disable specific songs from playing during the game.

  • Summary: While Pro Evolution Soccer has suffered from a lack of inspiration on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 recently, last year's Wii debut proved that the series isn't afraid to innovate. Its new control system was a revelation, allowing you to use the Wii Remote to draw out tactics onscreen, and it offered an entirely new way of playing an established franchise.
  • Pros: Champions League and Master League modes, Thorough tutorial mode, Online play is well implemented, Alternate control schemes allow a more traditional play style
  • Cons: Very few official teams and venues, Some awkward player animations

Pro Evolution Soccer 2009

Video Game Generation

  • Summary: Unlike, say, first-person shooters, there aren't exactly vast resources to compare soccer games to. No, there are maybe two or three key titles, and then a dozen other short-lived pretenders to the throne that suddenly show up one day and fade back into obscurity just as quickly. However, of the few titles I have had the pleasure of playing, I must say that Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 is right there at the top - number one with a bullet, as they say.
  • Pros: Pick-up-and-play gameplay., Tons of replay, online and off., Rather true-to-life audio.
  • Cons: Offline multiplayer is a mess., Online lacks WiiSpeak support., Woah! What’s with the crowds?

Hardcore Gamer

  • Summary: Football, Soccer, Futbol, the beautiful game has many names but the simulation genre has long been dominated by Konami’s masterfully crafted Pro Evolution series. Last year’s Wii version introduced motion controls in a way that complimented the action without ever seeming gimmicky or forced. The 2009 iteration of the series keeps the general tone intact but adds several layers to the game play.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 - First Impressions

8 April 2009
  • Excerpt: Last year, Konami released PES 2008 on the Wii boasting an entirely unique control system that left many people sceptical and others intrigued. It soon became clear for the people who picked the game up that these new controls allowed the players to play a football game in a way that they had never done before.

Test : Pro Evolution Soccer 2009

12 October 2014
  • Summary: Ah le printemps, une saison synonyme de retour du beau temps, de jupes courtes pour les jeunes demoiselles en fleur et surtout de sortie de Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 sur Wii pour ceux qui comme moi pensent que c’est faire du sport que de taper dans un ballon de foot virtuel. Après 6 mois d’attente par rapport aux autres versions, on va enfin pouvoir voir ce que nous réserve la bête... Alors coup de maître de la part de Konami ou jeu à remiser sur le banc de touche ?
  • Pros: Un gameplay réussi, Des appels en profondeur enfin possibles, La précision du tir manuel, Le nombre de modes de jeux, Le foot c’est toujours bien !!!
  • Cons: Une prise en main difficile, La défense mal fichue, Les graphismes, Les commentaires affligeants

Nintendo Difference
18 June 2013
  • Summary: PES 2009 sur Wii, la superior version ? Très probablement, tant l’exhaustivité des modes de jeux et la présence d’une jouabilité classique séduiront tout joueur à la recherche d’un jeu de foot digne de ce nom. Pour améliorer son « premier jet » audacieux mais tronqué de l’année dernière, Konami a su écouter les joueurs en apportant tout ce qu’il manquait et en rajoutant quelques bonnes idées au passage.
  • Cons: Musiques horribles, j’insiste, Vers une Légende à la trappe, Niveau simu, on repassera, Pourquoi arriver si tard ?
