PES 2009 is the latest installment of the award-winning Pro Evolution Soccer Series, which is known by millions of fans for its superior gameplay and incredible realism. For PES 2009, Konami is already planning a raft of extensive new additions that will further bridge the gap between PES and the real thing. The new game has undergone a stunning graphical update to ensure its players look and move even more like their real-life counterparts. Similarly, all-new options allow users to tailor the game to their own tastes, while new moves, innovative new control elements and key online elements will further the realism of the new game.
  • Fully Licensed UEFA Champions League mode
  • Official Liverpool and Manchester United teams
  • New player models, AI elements and physics routines
  • 'Become a Legend' mode - Start your career as a rookie midfielder or striker and work your way through the ranks to become a pro. Play in your favourite attacking position and work as part of a team, as opposed to controlling every player.
  • 'Legends' online mode - Use your saved 'Become a Legend' player in online matches with like-minded friends, and show off your skills on the larger online stage.
  • Redefined intricacies of first touch, close control and ball distribution
  • Enhanced shooting and AI mechanisms
  • The new control system makes full use the D-Pad and analogue stick to perform contextual tricks and feints within the players run.
  • Weather, air resistance and ground friction all have an affect on the balls motion - alter your play to match the conditions just like in real-life.
  • Teamvision AI has been extended allowing computer controlled team mates to adapt their tactics more realistically.
  • A reworked Master League means a players' loyalty and mood now affects their performance on the pitch.
  • Enhanced realism through aesthetic updates, including stadium environments and atmosphere.
  • Improved depth of field through the use of contrast for a greater sense of distance.
  • New vertical camera that automatically switches to a close-up view during key one-on-one situations.

 All you ex pro evo fans and fifa fans, when will you learn ?

How can anyone prefer Fifa over this. It just blows my mind.

Ive been a pro evo fan all my life and ill never change. Ive downloaded the Fifa demo from Xbox live just to see what the other half likes, and I just don't get it. Fifa just feels wrong, childish and plastic, im not even gonna go in to details I just hate it cause its rubbish. Where as pro evo feels gritty and real. Like you are almost there, and there is actually some sense of achievement when you score. I can't really explain it Pro evo just feels right.

As another reviewer put it, and myself and all my mates would agree. The only reason Fifa fans don't like this game is because it's too difficult for them and you cant win 10 - 0. Who really gives a monkeys about the names and stuff being spelt wrong. I know I don't. Id much rather the physics of the game were actually thought through.

I do hope they sort the online out as that was the only let down of PES 2008.

 Looking for a new manager in the summer...

Anyone who loves football, loves Pro Evo. It has long been the most faithful recreation of the hallowed sport since the original incarnations on the PS1.

Whereas FIFA always proffered style over substance, with stilted animations and scripted ball movement, Pro Evo celebrated the fluid nature of the sport, finely balanced with the glorious and the random as it appears on a real pitch. But since the advent of the next-generation consoles, Pro Evo is starting to show genuine fatigue and is in danger of mid-table obsurity.

Annual updates were never groundbreaking reinventions, rather they were subtle changes to what was already a pretty solid simulation. But the leap to the 360 and PS3 has proved disasterous and this latest incarnation will do little for concerned fans.

The presentation has always been something of a joke in the series. Unintelligible menu screens, awkward tournament set-ups and awful commentary have always been forgiven, but Konami seem determined to distance the player further from any sense of realism or basic cohesion.

The Masterleague remains a nonsense, with a ridiculous league format, unlikely player fatigue and an unweildy transfer system. We all know that EA have the rights to the correct teams and stadia, but is it really too much to ask of Konami that they allow you play unlicensed teams from the same country, and at least pretend it's the Premiership? Quirks like this are all the more annoying as there simply is no need for them.

The gameplay has picked up somewhat from last year's incarnation, both on and offline. Largely gone are the mysterious teleporting players during Xbox Live encounters, and the animation has returned to something like its best with fewer instances of delayed reactions or unintended plays. Matches remain as fierce and as pleasingly authentic as always, with dramatic late winners and comical own-goals, something that rarely happens in the arcade-style 11-10 farces on FIFA. But the referees and the off-side decisions in particular are often infuriating, and you can often concede a free kick for lofting a ball two metres in your own half.

I fear our friends in Japan underestimate the passion for the game there is in Europe, and elsewhere in the world for that matter. At this rate, moneybags EA will have a game so similar to Pro Evo that it will make little sense to go with the unbranded game and suffer horrific misnomas and Mark Lawrenson reading out lines like a five-year-old at book club.

As gamers, perhaps this doesn't matter. If we end up actually playing a reasonable simulation as Tottenham Hotspur instead of North London White, then who cares who makes the game? But for die-hard fans, this will be like watching your team slip slowly and unavoidably into certain relegation when you know they were capable of so much more.

 In a diffrent league 2 Fifa (Again)

Having played Fifa 09 and played the pes demo it is clear 2 me that the l8est pro evo is miles better than fifa. I hav allways been a pes fan and had every game since pes2. I just cant understand how people can prefer fifa. Granted it has better graphics and all the licences but the gameplay is shocking. its so slow monotinous and childish. If you just want 2 do a basic pass you have to hold A for about 2 seconds. There is a powerbar for everything! Also on pes you can tap B or X to add to the powerbar and gradualy build it up but on Fifa once you release thats it, and corners and freekicks are annoying and stupid. For this to be the best Pes ever the online lag needs 2 be sorted and the become a ledgend mode needs to be exciting. The overall gameplay looks and improvemnt on last year, the Al look better and it looks a little more difficult . The gmaeplay has been slowed down a bit which gives you a little bit more time to think about what your going to do and keep possession and stroke the ball about a bit. Overall PES is the same quality game its allways been and Fifa is for people who dont understand football and like looking at a picture of Wayne Rooneys ugly mug!

Pes is now a laughing stock. Konami really need to think of something fresh. The series as got stale. The new become a legend mode will be a complete joke. Konami carnt even get 1vs1 right,nevermind four people. They seem to churn out the same,year in year out. Pes2008 was/is a complete joke,and this one will be no different. The gameplay is bad,not like the pes of old. Avoid like the plague,am afraid

 Awesome multiplayer experience.

So, It has worse graphics than fifa, worse sound, unliscenced teams and less teams.
But, more importantly than all of that is the fact that pro evolution soccer is more FUN than fifa. And that's the reason we play games right?
This game is as always great to play with your mates and this time there's no lag online. That's all the reason yo need to choose PES over Fifa this year.
