PES 2010 claims to have more new features and improvements than any of its predecessors. Is it time for it to regain the football crown from FIFA? Sadly, not just yet.
Oh PES, how you frustrate us. You do so many things right, and yet fall short in too many key areas to compete with the mighty FIFA, whose series has gained significant momentum of late. FIFA 10 may not be perfect, but it offers an incredible amount of depth, mainly due to a rich online mode and the plethora of league licenses under its belt. Although PES 2010 boasts the Champions League and Europa League, only a handful of teams are represented in their full glory, with the remainder having their familiar Konami-created names.
