Summary: I can't believe it, truly the King id dead. It's awful this year. Here are the low points: * No realism in the player movements, they turn without any reference to reality, turning 180 degrees in a heartbeat.
Summary: After playing the demo i was extremely disappointed, but i thought id wait for the full game. firstly the main menu has had a complete change, and as a overall synopsis, thats the most they have changed since they have moved onto the next gen consoles.
Summary: This is my first review for Metacritic. But as someone who has now played both Fifa and PES 09's, Konami should be ashamed of this mess. The players move jerky, and just completely unrealistic and unnatural. The game also has pitiful extra's compared to Fifa09.
Summary: Just tried the demo, granted its the demo but this years appears to be the worst yet. Since moving to the 360/ps3 the franchise has been on the downslope and from the visuals and AI to the sound effects and ball physics it only gets worse this year.
Excerpt: I must admit that I've only got into football video games recently, so the apart from PES 2009 and FIFA 09, I am new to this whole thing. I always had a problem getting to grips with the controls and a huge lack of patience with this type of game.
Excerpt: PES is carrying on without any licenced players and still algging behind on the graphics we see in Fifa but it isn't all bad. the gameplay itself is good and stays fluid as were the previous games. However there are somenew modes like the become a pro mode.
overall a better game than last year, but still way behind FIFA

Excerpt: Be warned, Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 on the Wii is not for those incapable of multi-tasking. Unlike almost every other soccer game on the market, Pro Evo puts you in control of much more than a single bloke on the pitch.
Excerpt: When purchasing Pro Evolution Soccer 2009, I crossed a border from Fifa fan to "the people's game". I had never played PES, but I had been recommended many a time over the past few years. I decided that this year I would see what all the fuss was about. My first impression wasn't good.
Excerpt: At first your quite taken by the quality game play in PES 2009, but after a while the negatives in this game started to come to my attention. First of all the new included champions league mode, the game mode itself is probably the best feature in the game but if you cant have all the correct teams...
