Excerpt: Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 is a pretty good game, I bought this one late, partially because the reviews hadn’t been overwhelming and also because it gets cheaper the closer it gets to the new edition being released.
Pros: Much more variable to play than FIFA which is interesting
Cons: The graphics, sound and options are inferior
PES 2009 the most real life football experience on any console!!

Excerpt: I have played the Pro Evolution games for the last 4 years after finally getting converted from FIFA and I have to say I am glad I changed! In my opinion the game play is as real as it can get however I expect this to be even more improved in the next release (whch is next week).
Pros: Good league set up, good game play
Cons: no real club names and some false player names
PEs is now what FIFA use to be moaned at for being.

Excerpt: For many years, Pro Evolution Soccer defeated FIFA hands down in terms of playability. Sadly, this dominance seems to have ended. PES 2008 was considered a terrible failure whereas FIFA 08 was a success, KONAMI had to do something to change that this year, and yet they didn't.
Summary: Well I got this on release day and less than two weeks later I have had to get rid. I have numerous criticisms, where to start really? I have owned every pes release for the past 8 years, but now I have to say enough.
