Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 Xbox 360 Review
29 May 2010
Excerpt: It’s funny how we have such little choice with football games in this modern age, there aren’t many options if you are seeking a virtual recreation of the sport. Today it’s FIFA or Pro Evolution Soccer, or more specifically FIFA vs. Pro Evolution Soccer, a battle that is currently being won by the mighty FIFA franchise, at least in terms of fluidity and realism.
Summary: So, overall " Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 " is still good fun and is an improvement then, although not the vast improvement that many of us have been hoping for. Maybe next year, the series will have something to truly shout about, although, given Konami's recent track record, I'm not holding my breath.
Excerpt: Many people I have spoken to say there’s no point in buying the same game, year after year, after all it can’t be that different can it? Then of course there is the big footie game debate: Fifa or Pro Evolution Soccer ( PES ). Well I’m not here to tell you which one is better, only you know what you prefer. What I can tell you is that PES 2010 is definitely an improvement on PES 2009 and in my opinion well worth a look.
Summary: When Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 is good, it is very good. When the A.I, both on the CPU and player teams, is doing what it should be it runs like a dream. There are few things that feel as good as smacking a 30 yard screamer into the top corner or pulling off a beautiful passing move.
Unfortunately the A.I is inconsistent at best and god awful at worst. Players on your team make incomprehensible decisions and opposing players become supermen on the higher difficulties.
Excerpt: While soccer has been the most popular sport in the world for a long time, it has yet to really take hold in the US. It has been a hit with youths but that interest seems to gradually wane with age. With the World Cup in 2010, English Premier League games on ESPN and a rising star in Jozy Altidore, the sport may gain a much larger audience in North America.
Pros: The thrill of the sport is intact., Player models are impressive., Overall, a fun game to play.
Cons: No licenses for most leagues, no US team., Be a Legend is extremely limited., Menus can be confusing.

Excerpt: It isn’t often that a game makes you feel genuinely sad. Myriad RPGs have tried to make you feel remorse and sorrow through their storyline, and a large percentage of them have failed miserably. Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 unfortunately manages it without trying. From the first time you step in to the vastly-improved yet still overly-familiar Master League mode, you’ll think of all those good times that you had with the PS2 versions of the game way back when, and the PS1...
Summary: This year's Pro Evo improves upon its predecessor in some key areas, but it does little else to keep up with the competition.
Pros: Improved online mode with reduced lag problems, Slower simulation-style gameplay, Improved Master League mode with Champions League integration, Excellent player likenesses
Cons: Only one major new game mode, Team style and playing style cards do little to change the game, Not enough improvement to the core gameplay, Animation system is showing its age, Atrocious commentary
Conclusion: Pro Evolution Soccer still plays a good game of football, and if you loved previous games in the series, you'll no doubt enjoy playing this year's model. However, Pro Evo can no longer claim to be the best football game in any given area, and other than the incremental improvements made over the past few years, it's in desperate need of a complete overhaul.
Pros: Improved online mode with reduced lag problems, Slower simulation-style gameplay, Improved Master League mode with Champions League integration, Excellent player likenesses.
Cons: Only one major new game mode, Team style and playing style cards do little to change the game, Not enough improvement to the core gameplay, Animation system is showing its age, Atrocious commentary.
