Deep, tactical soccer ; Good variety of online/offline modes ; Off the ball controls enhance strategy

Controls feel like they are fighting back ; Commentary is sparse and dry ; Animations are rigid

Rivalries. Regardless of whether your side of the coin lands up or down, it’s hard to deny that rivalries improve everyone involved. Our competitors drive us to improve and innovate. The dynamic between PES and FIFA has very much been a jockey for...

Review: Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 Finds Itself as a Series in Flux


Konami's latest soccer experience scores, then risks a second yellow card in the same game.

A friend, who knows my predilections for the Beautiful Game well, once IM'ed me a joke: "how you you say 'almost' in spanish?" "Casi?" "no, 'futbol!' lol" As jokes go, it musters a weak hi-hat. As metaphors for Pro Evolution Soccer go, it's apt. I have...

Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 Review


PES 12 may lack new modes, but substantial improvements to its AI, speed, and controls make it an exciting football game that's a lot of fun to play.

AI improvements make for more exciting matches ; Off-the-ball control lets you set up stunning plays ; Smooth animation ; Fast, exciting gameplay

Lame commentary ; Most game modes are the same as in last year's game ; Lacks team licenses

Other, smaller improvements have been made to the controls too. These include less complicated hold-up play, which now requires just two button presses; this lets you force attacking players back without going straight in for a tackle. One-on-one play...

Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 review


Konami's soccer franchise is back for its annual outing. Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 takes gamers to a virtual soccer field where the guys at Konami have been competing like hell for the right to claim the best soccer game in the world. EA's FIFA...

Of course the biggest question that people will ask is whether to buy Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 or FIFA 12. It's admittedly a tough call. Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 has seen some nice improvements in the AI and controls. I guess you can say that “true”...

PES 2012 is definitely a great game and deserves to be looked at by sports fans and soccer fans alike. Sure, the lack of an official FIFA license kind of sucks, but the solid visuals, good sound, and easy to pick up, but tough to master controls make...

Pro Evolution Soccer 2012


Great sports rivalries are what keeps fans interested and keeps them paying out the nose to get through the gates. Rivalries define not only passion and emotion that drive the athletes, but create an undeniable atmosphere that incites people into a...

I realize that I've come across as overly critical and it's not necessarily fair to compare a game so directly with its rival and competition. Having said that, PES feels less polished overall, and the differences that once made it stand out now feel...

Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 Review


The Pro Evo series has sat firmly in the shadow of FIFA for much of the last generation, seemingly forever in a transitionary period and struggling with [...]

"Pro Evolution Soccer 2015" has carved out a niche for itself and is a thoroughly deserving football game. Simpler to learn but more difficult to master than FIFA, it plays a great game of football. There are more licenses than ever before, and if the...

Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 PS3 Review


Ever since 2001 when PES was launched, the main argument between football fans is which is better: FIFA or Pro Evo? To be honest I've always gone with FIFA so I thought I would give Pro Evo a go and see the other side of the argument. I think that...

Fully licenced Champions League ; Updated AI ; Chat in Online Mode

Premier League still not fully licensed ; Not Graphically Perfect
