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.
I would definatly buy this game but not at full price.

Excerpt: I have been a big fan of the PES series since PES 6 on the Xbox 360, which was in fact the first 'Next gen' version of the game, however this game was simply a port of the PS2 version and some aspects were unable to be copied over it missed alot of features.
Excerpt: All PES fans, look away now!! Being a PES fan myself for the last 6 years, I must painfully admit that this new installment from KONAMI is a huge huge dissapointment :( Its difficult to pinpoint where its all gone wrong for the game developers (konami)!
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...
Ignore the rumours, PES 2009 is a solid game with a great single player and enjoyable with friends.

Excerpt: So the old PES vs. FIFA argument arises yet again, but this time, while Konami are trying to find their feet still on the next-gen (current gen now surely?) platforms, FIFA seemingly excel. However, is this actually the case?
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.
Summary: i have to admit it i dont get that buzz from pro evo anymore its really sickening but its just not right , i played fifa 09 and it feels wrong and i play pro evo 09 and it feels like it wants to be right it wants to be like pro evo of the great days but it just cant do it it feels like i cant...
Summary: I tell you what confuses me about most next gen. console games: they play a lot like games from 5 years ago, the only difference being that they're prettier to look at. Honestly, if you liked PES 6, you might like this. If you liked PES 2008... well, you're clinically insane.
