4.5 Nearly There! Johnboy84 | 14/06/2011 | See all Johnboy84's reviews (35) I was a pro evo fan from very first release but have taken the past three years out after converting to fifa due to the dire past releases. I thought i'd give this a go as fifa has grew very repetative with 2011 being the same (if not worse) than 2009 and 2010.At first it comes across as fifa on a terrible budget with the players looking very grainy around the edges and still no liscenced teams. But it's the general faults with the game that let it down.The computer makes some terrible fouls which should be a sending off but don't even get given at all when i get a yellow for attemping a diving header, really annoying. The players on your team are constantly offside and are very slow to make runs. There is no advantage system or option for quick free kicks which fifa had a long time ago. The shooting system isn't very good at all either, one tap can send the ball into orbit so there never feels like you hve alot of control over shooting. the same goes for crossing, one tap can send it to the other side of the pitch. I don't get on with the tackling system either, it hasnt made defending anymore interesting and sometimes makes me feel a little helpless. There are a few more minor mistakes but my last complaint is the commentators. Jon Champion isn't too bad (even though some of his comments are a bit retarded) but who on earth is Jim Beglin? He's useless anyway.But now onto the good points. i love the passing system, you have complete freedom of passing which adds to the realism and enjoyment. The game options are good too with the champions league being done very well and my personal favourite the master league. The master league beats fifa's career mode hands down even though there is room for alot of improvement. If anything in this game was done as good as its champions league it would beat fifa easy.What it all comes down to is the fact that pro evo seems to be on a budget or simply rushed, so if the funding and effort that went into fifa went on this, it would be the number one football game ever. I just hope for alot more effort for the next one and i'll be hooked once again.
