Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 (Xbox 360) Review
1 June 2010
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: Yaaaaay! Everyone loves ninjas don’t they? Those funny little guys moving silently, defending honour and kicking the crap out of wrong do-ers. In N+ you actually do none of that and it still manages to be an awesome ninja-action title. You may or may not have played a little-known game called Line-Rider on the net.
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: UK REVIEW--It's been a tough few years for the Pro Evolution Soccer series. After first showing signs of stagnation in 2008, it's subsequently been overtaken by FIFA in the area it always dominated: gameplay. While Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 doesn't stop the rot, it's a step in the right direction. The gameplay returns the series to its simulation roots and the online mode boasts much improved features and functionality.
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
