3 Hmm...Is'nt this game too easy?crocodiletears | 17/10/2008 | See all crocodiletears's reviews (41)Top 100 Games Reviewer Not bad. I will start by saying that until last year I have always been a Pro Evo fan over Fifa. I think even the most die hard Pro fans will even admit that last years game was just not up to scratch (The first goal I scored my player went running through the stadium and into complete darkness). The online play was also terrible. As a result I went for Fifa 08 which, not without its faults, is a very good game. On the basis of people saying this year a lot of those faults had been fixed I thought I would give this years Pro a chance again having always loved the game. Im really sad to say, its not that good.Unfortunately after playing Fifa 08 and 09 the game play seems very linear. I mean the players can only really run straight or diagonally which is a bit annoying. I had always been able to forgive no licences and the slightly inferior graphics because PES was always the true simulator over Fifa (in the old days 10-10 was not an unusual score in Fifa)I hate to say it but the games have swapped places. It is now Fifa that demands a more measured build up and more tactical play. This can not be highlighted any more than the fact that after a few hours of play I found there are a few guaranteed ways to score goals on PES, this is a definite NO NO for any football game in my opinion (loosing 1-0 in the Champs League semi-final, no problem, resort to cutting in from the wing and shooting from the edge of the area and 9 out of 10 attempts find the net). Unfortuntely you can score like this on even the hardest difficulty settings.To sum up, its not a bad game, I just do not get the same satisfaction out of playing this than I do with Fifa 09. Everyone will have their opinion but I really think PES is now the definitive 'Arcade Style' football game and Fifa 09 is now the true 'Football Simulator'
