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?
Conclusion: If you are looking for a great football game online dont pick this one! It constantly stops and starts! And then you are in a diffrent position! If you do not play online and just play by your self this is the kind of game you want good graphics and games mode , like being a legend and stuff.
Conclusion: Year after year, Pro Evolution Soccer was the footballers choice for a football game. The play was more realistic than Fifa, there was more fluidity and quicker gameplay - all in all it was more enjoyable.
