Excellent as ever but overly reliant on MyClub mode

As a long-time player of Konami football titles I'm always looking forward to each annual entry in the Pro Evolution Soccer series. 2019 is definitely a step-up from 2018 and the superb 2017 but the changes are becoming more and more incremental. The gameplay is tighter, passing much improved and the pitch itself look more realistic, with grass lush and affecting the run of the ball. The addition of a number of licenced leagues, such as the Scottish Premiership and Russian Premier League are a welcome addition but they lack the fully fledged presentation as seen in the FIFA series.

Better than Fifa 2019

The play is so fluid and it feels so real. I've been playing Fifa since Fifa 94. My first PES was 2018. I wasn't planning on purchasing this year again. Not a PES fanboy. I tried the demo and I was sold. PES is plain FUN. Konami desperately needs to hire a professional UI guy. Their menu is lacking, to say the least, but the gameplay is pure GOLD! If I had to choose I would buy PES 2019 over Fifa 2019 just because improvements are very minimal year over year. Konami this year is only supporting current gen system which allowed them to improve graphics over previous years. I suck defending in FIFA and in PES it feels I actually can control my defense vs holding all kind of buttons for second player, protecting, and so forth. In PES you are in control!!!! A++++

much funnier than I expected

Wow! It has been a while that I didn't play PES and konami really did a great job on this 2019 version. This game is so impressive. The football experience this game gives this you it's very enjoyable, beautiful stadiums atmosphere, natural movement of the players when shooting, dribbling and passing, decent goalkeepers, full control of your teams (tactics, defensive or offensive mindset), decent learning curve to improve your skills in the game. You have some so many leagues and teams to choose. Option Files to install kits and emblem for some teams are very easy to handle - in 5 five minutes you'll have it all. I totally recommend you guys to give a try in this PES 2019! it's worthy

The ultimate futbol experience

This game has truly proven itself to be a great soccer game. The lack of licensed teams may be a flaw but the creative control of the game, the players, and even the teams makes it feel much more advance than it's competition: FIFA. The players face scans are much more realistic, the game play is much more than just offense-it requires actual skill to play both ends of the field.

Red Star Belgrade is not in the game! And that upsets me!

Aside from being a really good game to play the graphics are great the player faces are great, what is lacking desperately is a roster share like EA Sports has in their NCAA football game as well as their Madden game where you can easily upload a file directly into the game instead of having to go online to a community share? It's a pain in the butt not having the actual license to the clubs and leagues, but I think if you add more leagues such as the English national league, the United Soccer League, the Romanian League, the Serbian League which Red Star Belgrade is not in this game like it used to be in the older games ! My point is the more leagues you have the more clubs you have the larger audience you're going to have which is going to be a lot more buyers for the game and PS is missing a huge Market!

Unlicensed teams? No problem!

The one thing I always despise about PES is the lack of licensed teams. Until I discovered that I was able to import data to create actual licensed teams. The creative control, the customization, and the engine this game runs on are all amazing. I can control all aspects of my player and customize them the way I want. Unlike Fifa, you can edit the teams to whatever you like. The graphics are also super accurate to the players, even though Real Madrid IS FIFA's team, PES still has the better character models. And the game play is solid as always, and with the new abilities the game is much more realistic. Overall, I am glad to have purchased this game for full price because it is worth it if you're a die hard soccer/futbol fan. Now I have something to play until FIFA goes on sale, ha!

For pure fans of soccer and PES series

Let's admit it - FIFA is better in terms of presentation and contents. More people buy and play FIFA so it has better community online. However, PES still has its realistic and hardcore/pure soccer charm which many long-time fans appreciate. And this 2019 version is certainly the best in PES history. I am however docking one star because I can feel lack of content more than ever. It's not that PES 2019 did not improve over PES 2018. It is not expanding as much as FIFA does. Sure many people will prefer PES over FIFA but that does not justify Konami's lack of effort in coming up with new modes and giving customers a reason to buy $59.99 game another year after year.

No goal!

PES 2019 is really a great football game but it lacks a number of things. Now im not going to talk about licences because everybody knows that already, the thing that bothers me the most is how ridicilous the superstar difficulty is! It doesnt mather if you are a small team or FC Barcelona, alle teams play as if they are Real Madrid on steroids! Now you can say okay then play on top player difficulty but then the game becomes extremely easy! There is no balance in difficulty! It seems very scripted! I really believe that its one of the best football games when it comes to ball physics and graphics and all the things that matter on the pitch but playing master league becomes extremely annoying when you keep losing because of scripting!

Way....Better than FIFA. Even the off-line mode.

I have been playing EA stuffs for years. After all those years of disappointed features. This year, I chose PES 2019 and it is far better then FIFA, the ball bounce likes a real-life physics and I wish they can get the license done. No more FIFA 20xx for me, and EA is lucky that no one wrote a better hockey game in the market.

Red Star Belgrade is missing!

It's a good game I like it, what's missing is Red Star Belgrade after you've had them in the game for several years? Also I should have been more leagues added to the game even if they're 2nd division 3rd 4th? The more leagues you have the more teams you have you're going to reach a much wider audience is going to want their leg or their team in the game? The English national league should be added, also the United soccer league in America here would reach a wide huge audience.

PES 2012 Wii

This is the 5th incarnation of PES on the Wii. The first (2008) version revolutionized the series with its new playmaker control series. The 2009 edition built on this and ironed out the original faults such as the poor defending. However, since then the gameplay has remained largely unchanged, with each new version merely updating the teams and players (although you need to spend 10 minutes on the editor if you want the proper team names for premier league teams). Therefore, if you have any PES on Wil from 2009 onwards then you will know exactly what to expect from this game. Whilst the consensus of opinion is that FIFA has overtaken PES on other consoles, it is fair to say that when it comes to the Wii, PES still offers a much more realistic and tactical game of football than FIFA does. I have returned to the classic controller for the 2012 edition and it does help to make the game feel more like the classic PES that I used to love on the PS2. The fact that this game cost only £12.95 from Zavvi, meant that it was worth buying just to update the teams and players. However, apart from that don't expect anything else to be different from the previous versions.

PES 2012 PS3

I always considered myself a PES man... until FIFA 10 came along that is! The style, options, control etc. was all a better standard (in my humble opinion) - so for the last couple of years I switched allegiance to the EA titles. This year, I got FIFA 12 on release, hammered it, but oddly enough had little enjoyment from it - who wants to spend 90mins standing off and waiting for the right time to tackle... so I got rid of that but couldn't handle the thought of a summer and no football games so took a chance on this... I have to say I'm pleased i did. PES12 has all you'd expect from the series: instant playablility, decent range of game modes and of course the randomly named classic players/teams etc. to unlock. Personally I've had much more fun in the last couple of weeks on this than in the last 10 months of FIFA, much more fun to play co-op with friends and more varied gameplay (long ball or counter attacking wingplay...can't beat a useless six foot + target man!) Overall around 4/5 for me & well worth a go at the price Zavvi is charging.

The learning curve of the game is quite steeper and that's the reason why many turn away from the game at the very beginning. But if you manage to overcome this, the game will reward you with a very exiting and deeply engaging experience. If you are skilled enough you'll be able to perform very scenic shots. My personal favorite is the football career mode. Don't forget to turn the autosave option there - that way every game is like the real one - you can't replay it by simply restarting at the last autosave - if you turn the system in the middle of the game you'll gate a technical defeat. That way you are forced to put a real effort into every single game. On the other hand, every such victory is much more valuable and is more strongly experienced. Like in real football!

If you are a true soccer fan ( I AM NOT, but my son is ) and you know the European soccer game circuit, then you'll probably get something out of this gaming experience. I tried to learn how to play with the tutorials and it was not easy for me. Game graphics, music, the roar of the crowd are very good. I guess I'm just an ATARI Pac Man, Asteroids, Centipede guy at heart. Games in their search for realism, have lost the idea of.... playing just to play.

PES is Nice

If you are on the fence between the two games ask yourself if you are just wanting a general soccer game to pop in every once and awhile or if you want a deeper soccer experience. If you get PES and you want it to work as well as it can it will take some effort on your part. To see what I mean, I would suggest going to your favorite search engine and looking for PES forums (PES Gaming is a good one) or PES option files. For true PES fans (those claiming long-term loyalty) the decision between these two games is very simple. Others can whine all they want about the long-standing cursor issue (not really a problem) but if you are not willing to provide input to the game of how you want to play and how you want it to perform then you should get FIFA.

PES 2012: Pro Evolution Soccer

Pro Evolution Soccer keeps improving year by year. The 2012 game is pretty similar to PES 2011, but with mayor improvements in the game-play and other areas of the game. The graphics have been greatly improved, and the players faces are really similar to the real life ones. PES 2012 has added some new features, such as different online modes. If you love football, you will definitely love Pro Evolution Soccer 2012. You'll be able to play with a huge variety of licensed teams from all around the world, and their own tournaments. So, if you're a football fan, then this game is made for you.

PES2012 - big improvement

After playing Fifa 2012 the week before I received PES 2012 and I was initially very impressed. I have been a strict a loyal Pro fan since the beginning but PES 2011 was disappointing to say the least, however the new offering has completely improved in almost every way. The most important change being the "bug" where no matter who you had on the ball sprinting he would ALWAYS get caught by a defender. Fixing this issue has made the game immensely more enjoyable and in my opinion just edges Fifa in terms of gameplay and realism. Fifa fans will always have bragging rights about licensing but true ballers know that Pro is the way forward.

In PES 2012: Pro Evolution Soccer, the passing system is fantastic as compared to last year's edition, as in the sense that I don't have to wait for my player to receive the ball before making my next pass. There is still some errors in the referees decisions sometimes, but isn't that always the case? The player animation is much better than last years, and player movements have also been greatly improved. The boost of speed in the game is what I enjoy most, and it's what makes me look out for PES every time. Very impressed.

awsome, Great graphic, Great effects, live, unique

this product is wonderful. the graphic is great and it gives you the sensation of being live, in a real world game. This product is different from others, because the effects on it are awesome. Others products don't have graphics, and sounds effects, etc. Iam very happy with the purchase of it. Mine son loves it.
