TVGB: Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 Review

It's not that PES is bad, it's just that it's so consistently great that it's a bit predictable, and predictable is…well…a bit dull. Because PES has always been nearly perfect there isn't much to improve upon.You can't add a new vehicle section, or add new weapons can you? Football is football at the end of the day. All the familiar PES bits are there, the Master League is still there and exactly the same as it ever was, the online bit is still a bit laggy (RSB: That's something they should have improved upon!) and there are all the usual cup competitions. New stuff includes a licensed Champions League mode with all the music and TV style graphics and Become a Legend mode, where you take you play one character and take him from being a 17 year old kid right up to the great honour of captaining England (or whatever country you like).

the truth is, its not the first time such a mode appear on the Winning Eleven franchise...

It was there on one of the PS2 version of WE and the first person mode was tested as well...and to be honest i can't tell the exact release day of that and so I can tell which franchise has got it first...

but no, its not a rip off/counter for FIFA's be a pro..

"It's not that PES is bad, it's just that it's so consistently great that it's a bit predictable, and predictable is…well…a bit dull. Because PES has always been nearly perfect there isn't much to improve upon."

I totally agree with that and thats why reviewers usually give PES a good score (around 8/10) and not a great score (9/10 and up). While a crappy game like Fifa keeps getting 9s and crap because it went from crap to good. I find it really sad that reviewers are so affected by the previous games.
