I have been a PES man for years now, i did not enjoy PES 11 so decided to try Fifa. Everything about this game is better - the skills, shooting, passing, commentry are all brilliant. Definitly changed me to Fifa from now on.
this is by far the leading brand in footballing games, PES doesn't come close, the graphics gameplay are sensational. okay its not inch perfect, there are minor faults that could be adjusted, such as speed of processing movements. but at the end of the day its a quality game, can't wait for the next one.
The gameplay is the real winner with this. Slick, fluid and intuitive no question. The graphics are great although I certainly feel PES eclipses it, particularly in the cut scenes but the biggest issue with this game and the reason I swapped it for PES is simple. SORT OUT THE PROGRAMMING!
I have been a life-long PES follower but given the advancements in FIFA and the decline of PES in recent years I thought I'd give it a go but I've always loved the Master League element of PES so decided to make own Master League team in FIFA by introducing just a few 'classic' players, namely Maradona and Zico. After about 4 matches, Maradona miraculously changed to Elmander! Also, I actually scored a goal that wasn't really a goal. The shot which I hit actually went outside the post but then just appeared in the back of the net with my players peeling away in celebration! I checked this on the replay and couldn't believe my eyes! Of course I shouldn't complain given the fact I scored but the fact is is that it should simply not happen within a game that is meant to be so great! There seems to be some strange errors when creating players and registering them too as the stats of players who they are replacing suddenly turn to Rymans League standard!
No question that the gameplay is first-class but there are some serious underlying issues here which had me opting again for PES - and boy was I glad i did. PES isn't quite as instantly playable from a pure gameplay perspective but as a whole package and giving time to adjust to the changes in the gameplay, it becomes far more rewarding and ultimately wees on FIFA from a great height.
