Pro Evolution Soccer 2009
Ok game at home, online terrible
I have been playing FIFA since 06, but I wanted a change and I got this game for fathers day so I have been playing it since then. I have to say the graphics are excellent and the at home game is really entertaining, but if you are an online player, you can forget about this game. I played it online and the game was terrible, it feels as if the interface is just not fast enough. I would be in the middle of a play and all of the sudden my players stopped running and 2 or 3 seconds later would be in the middle of the field. This game is online does not compare to FIFA at all, I will be playing the game against the computer but not online. The players look really realistic and the controls are just as similar as the FIFA controlers as far as easy handling. There are more possibilities in controling the players and this makes it more fun, as well as playing in a champions league. Overall it is a good game to play at home just not online.
Beats the &*^% out of FIFA.
Are you kidding me? PES is 10x better than FIFA!!! PES is so much more challenging since FIFA's mechanics are just absolutely terrible. I mean, there's no way a normal person could turn that quick while dribbling the ball. There's no way. Whenever I play FIFA (and I've kept trying them everytime a new one's out), I'll score 6-7 goals in a match...easy. But try doing that in PES, it won't happen. It's much more challenging. Which is why IT"S MORE FUN. Who cares about the shoes, man? Go get a shoe tycoon simulation game if that's what you're looking for. I want goals, and I don't mind working for it, it's more satisfying. Which is why I play PES. You can't just weave through the opponent's defence with, say, Maldini in PES. You actually have to be good at it. Trust me, I've been a fan of Konami football games since a game they called "Goal Storm '97" when the PS first came out...I've never been disappointed whenever they release a new one (usually there's just a slight difference, but they always improve overall.) You can't go wrong with the millions of PS/XBOX in rental shops across Southeast Asia...they all play this, not rarely for 24/7.
Good game, but not fifa
I have been an avid pro evo fan for many years now, and i am not a fifa fanboy. I only just started playing fifa and i was stunned when i was, but lets get back to pro evo.The good: The game is very well organized and the new be a legend mode is great. The teams and players are all licensed now (the major ones) and it feels good to have some decent commentary for once. The graphics are great in my opinion, and i like the gameplay and controls. They are simple yet still effective. The game is good, yet it still lacks a die hard attitude towards football.The bad: The online is, junk, so laggy and it doesn't disconnect from a match, you will be stuck in a laggy match because neither player wants to quit. Unless you play the single player modes, the game is only decent online compared to fifa. My first online game was 6-6, a score rarely achievable in real life.Final Review: If you like football games, then by all means buy this if you don't like fifa or you want a change, but when it comes down to it, the online is not very good. The layout and graphics are good, but it doesn't make up for the online. I'll be sticking with fifa 09 until a major update comes out for this game. To me it feels to arcadey and less realistic. If you want an arcade game, get pro evo, if you want a realistic online game, go with fifa.
LoL "3L l0ko"
So you give credit to PES for gameplay.. lol.. Well Good that you know cuz FIFA's gameplay is 5/100 if not Zero. FIFA: To score a goal in FIFA you run .. run ..run then shoot. PES: To score a goal you need to play soccer lol .. and that is basically where the fun is GAMEPLAY. You are talking about player's shoes and shirts?!? This is not a fashion show game. This is soccer. Either way, edits are more realistic in PES and all are customizable. And don't trust 3L l0ko nor me. Play both for yourself and if you know what soccer is about you will pick the right game.
PES SUCKSSSSS !!!!!!!
If you guys think PES is better than Fifa you don't play soccer.... If you put the difficulty of fifa in legendary mode you can't even shot at the goal... but if you're scared and you put it in amateur mode of course you are going to score 6-7 goals,one day I scored 23 goals in amateur mode no kiding is the easiest but put it in legendary and you'll see what playing soccer is..... At the end Fifa is better... DON'T BUY PES... RECOMENDED: FIFA 09!
PES aka Winning Elven or FIFA ?
I have been playing both games for years, but i gotta give it up for PES, its the more accurate and much more difficult. On the other hand FIFA has more fun to play, and it has more teams that's about it. Hands down PES is more exciting. The only good thing about FIFA is that EA makes it and PES is Konami which is not known to make sports games. So bottom line if you want Difficulty play PES, if you just want to score goals play FIFA. PES all the way hands down.
I can list so many bad things about PES. The only good thing it has is gameplay. It's not great but that's it. The shoes r just black; no adidas or nothing. They tuck in shirts and it doesn't even look natural. FIFA on the other hand, has everything, from real shoes to gameplay to everything man. Just don't even waste ur money on this game, trust me.
