Guardian writes: "I've been playing PES 2009 – it's released this Friday - since the weekend and well, it's hard to know what to think really. The game feels slightly slower than last year but still plays noticeably faster than FIFA. The ball zips between players, despite feeling – and sounding – heavier than you would expect. And the Champions League licence adds some much needed pizzazz. All good. And where it matters – on the pitch – I still find PES more enjoyable to play than FIFA. But, and this is a very big but, I haven't been able to play online yet."
