E4G: Another season of football kicks off with PES 2010, but can the long running franchise keep pace with EA’s footballing giant Fifa?
I remember when PES used to be better than Fifa, but they're gonna have to do ALOT to get ahead of Fifa these days.
Exactly, it is quite the stiff competition out there in this generation.
i don't think the competion is stiff yes fifa would provide stiff competition but pes ain't even as good as it used to be were as fifa has gotten better much better then it used to be
A lot has changed in the past few years
Yep a lot has, imagine Kinect with this thing, will be so fun.
not many gamers will want to run in place for 90:00
competetion is always good for us
in my opinion its a return to form for the series, i especially love the new passing system and the graphics look great on both systems. Thats the only choice i have, which system to get it on because im definitley getting it
Last year i was hoping that PES 10 would deliver but it failed brutally hard. I thought that with them implementing 360 degree dribbling "that doesn't actually feel like it" with a 1000 new animations that it would somehow catch up to the quality that Fifa 10 offered but i was terribly wrong. Pro Evolution Soccer 11 isn't even worthy to be on the PS3/Xbox360 it certainly plays like footy on the last generation machines. Whereas, Fifa 11 is something out of this world building on what last year Fifa 10 did with refining everything that was off or didn't feel right and making it what just feels like a football simulator. I haven't found anything wrong so far but best of all, it plays and looks alot like the sport. The animations looks spot on and mostly reacting like they should...this is definitely a MUST OWN FOOTBALL GAME FOR FANS!
Fifa will always be #1 in my opinion but this game doesn't look too shabby either
PES looks better since this year but FIFA is easier to pick up and has all the licences going, except Champions League.
i wish pes would take a year off and konami spend two years develoing the next game so it can be the best there is
They don't take breaks with sports games
Definitely, just like vehicles don't take breaks either but meh...it is a really bad example if I say so...
It's got NOTHING on fifa.
fifa is an arcade game pro evo is a football sim which is why proper football fans choose pro evo
hennessey86- that USED to be the case. since going next-gen PES has failed. I'm a PES fanboy. I have never bought a FIFA game, loved PES/WE on PS2 and PS1. I bought PES2008, 2009, 2010 for PS3. I tried to like them. Eventually I would stop playing pretty soon because it just wasn't fun. Basically Konami has been able to fix most of the slowdown/glitches from the inital release, but besides that have not done much else. The gameplay has been broken the whole next-gen time. PES2011 demo is a significant change. I like the passing and the gameplay feels more fun. I like all the motion blurring. Sadly compared to FIFA11 it is way behind still. Besides everything else, the gameplay is better on FIFA. So this will be my first year getting FIFA. Now, PES has to win me back, not the other way around.
And yes how the heck would it be compatibile with kinect?
Calling PES, PEF. Sounds catchy :) No more soccer, pls call it football
It's the best PES this generation but FIFA will still come out on top. A few more years and we could see tables being turned.
PES looks awesome and is more realistic than FIFA this year. It's close to watching a real football match. They fixed the graphics and the stiff animations, it really does look much better than FIFA. But FIFA is easier to pick up and play, it plays more fluently and faster (less realistic). Hard decision this year...
your impression exactly mirrors mine :/ I've been going with FIFA ever since 2008 but this might be the first year i buck the trend
FIFA 11 is easy to play, but PES 2011 is in its own league when it comes to on pitch realism. After playing both i couldnt stand FIFA anymore
after 2 years of Fifa (09 and 10) I'm getting PES again. This year Konami really (finally) rebuilded the controls and they are awesome. Also, the manager mode is way better in PES than Fifa's imo.
i kinda enjoyed pes demo .. i dislike fifa control scheme so if i have to take one it'll be PES
you can change the scheme
yes you can... do you think i didn't know that ..?
"PES 2011 is in its own league when it comes to on pitch realism" Did you not notice those stiff animations? What about the same old Robot run? What about the ball being glued to the person on the ball...i'd like to know the football you watch. Now fifa's animations and gameplay mirror a real football game. Just run in a straight line with messi, then try it with pique..you will see they both run different... Now do that in pes and you get the same old stiff robot run. I use to love pes and i had high hopes for this years version but as soon as i played that demo the pre-order got cancelled and fifa's stayed there
