Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 (PlayStation 3)

 

If Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 was the reboot that put the series back in the running, then Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 is the game that pushes it straight to the finals. While it offers more in the way of refinement than something completely new, there...

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...

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

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...

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”...

Pro Evolution Soccer 2012- PS3

 

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- PS3

 

Pro Evolution Soccer is back for 2012. With its solid list of national teams, good selection of competitions and game modes, including the Champion's League, and simple arcade-style gameplay, PES 2012 offers a footballing experience that's accessible...

Consumer review by:

Pro Evolution Soccer 2012- PS3

 

For all of its glaring eccentricities, PES 2012's emphasis on fast-flowing attacking football over stodgy defensive play is still capable of winning us over. It might not provide the degree of true simulation that some players hanker after, and some of...
