Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 (PlayStation 3)

 

UK REVIEW--Although Pro Evolution Soccer fans bought last year's game in droves, it was unfortunately an all-time low for the series on the PlayStation 3. Poor graphics, dreadful presentation, and basic online play failed to make the most of the...

Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 review for the PS3

 

Firmly rooted to the midfield line.

Solid gameplay; Fleshed-out feature set

But nothing new or inventive; Unexceptional Become a Legend mode; Unpolished online play; Server ghost towns

Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 - Xbox 360 review at Thunderbolt Games

 

It never changes. Another year, another debate about which game offers the defining football simulation. On one hand, you've got a resurgent EA Sports, effortlessly reworking and refining their ideas until the praise inevitably rolls in. On the other,...

So what's new? Well, for the first time you have a full, seperate mode for the UEFA Champions League, complete with that mad choir music they play during the breaks. You know the stuff we mean. You take one of a range of teams through the 32 man...

Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 Review

 

Following injuries sustained by devastating online lag last year, PES squares up for another shot on goal...

Become A Legend mode is promising ; 2 vs. 2 online multiplayer for the first time ; Online lag has been ironed out for the most part

The Champions League mode lacks substance ; An auto-trick feature spoils the fun ; Player animations are jerky at times

Put it this way: we've been avid PES fans since the series inception and this year we're FIFA converts. PES makes changes to its formula that aren't particularly welcome for the most part and, while the Become A Legend mode has potential, the general...

Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 Xbox 360, PS3 Review

 

Perhaps it's complacency to blame as to why some fans of Konami's annual football series have jumped ship and now have a new first choice of football games, that being the always improving FIFA. In comparison, the Pro Evolution Soccer series is now...

Maybe next year.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 (PlayStation 3) - Gameplanet Review

 

The Pro Evolution Soccer franchise is back with the 2009 iteration, and they've got some real competition with EA's FIFA. Fortunately they manage to excel in a number of areas, however there were some disappointments along the way..

Superb in-game visuals. Realistic ball physics. Still a great technical title for real fans

Boring career mode. Horrible commentary. Scoring goals is too hard

Top notch!

Pro Evolution Soccer 2009

 

There has always been the two camps since Pro Evolution Soccer started its challenge on EA's FIFA franchise. You tended to either like the FIFA gloss and realistic names or you loved the gameplay and flair available from Konami's PES.

Tactics Selection ; Some Nice Moves Available

Too Complicated ; Looks Old Style

At first glance you expect some good things from PES 2009, the intro is very nice and you'd think there is some real class in the games graphical abilities. Then comes the menu system and the game itself and you realise that the intro must have taken...

Pro Evolution Soccer 2009

 

Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 is an improvement on last year's game, but this is a series that desperately needs a complete overhaul.

Simple, easy-to-pick-up gameplay ; Champions League license with official teams and sponsors ; New four-player online mode

Lack of improvement to core gameplay ; Dated animation system looks stilted ; Impoverished and laggy online play ; Poor presentation and commentary

Pro Evolution Soccer 2009

 

Can new licenses and modes save PES?

It seems to happen ever year now, the first impressions of PES tend to be bad ones, and it's only through repeated play that you get to appreciate its finer points. However, for a game that used to be so consistent, it would be nice to have a year...
