5.0 out of 5 stars The best for football, as always October 10, 2011
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
There are some improvements made on Pes 2012. The graphics are better with the players having some facial expressions, also the fans look better than they did in PES 11. The movements of the players are more realistic with each player having his attributes as in real life. There is this new thing that wasn't previously present in PES, you can instruct your teammates to move forward with the R3 button and choose them in corner kicks as well. One other thing I noticed is that it's harder to accurately tackle compared to PES 11 and it's also harder to get the ball from the opponent. PES has always, in my opinion, been steps ahead of fifa (although fifa has lately made some improvements) because of the fact that the game was never foreseeable (since Iss pro and pro ev 2 on ps1, where I remember in fifa 99, 2000, 2001 you almost knew what was going to happen) and it's getting better every year. PES is even better for people with high knowledge of football and that also play or have played in real life.
Of course, highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars PES 2012 November 15, 2011
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Every year I had faithfully coughed up $60 for the new FIFA. And every year I felt like it was a steep price for what was basically a roster upgrade. The game played like an arcade game, with balls sort of ping-ponging around from player to player. I love FIFA's licensing (obviously), and its glitzy presentation. But this year, I finally decided to try PES instead. And I'm definitely glad I did. I think the gameplay itself puts it head and shoulders above FIFA.

"Head and shoulders" makes me think of headers, which were nearly impossible in FIFA. It's been a huge problem for years with that franchise. The PES functions a lot like real life. I can get the ball out wide and cross it in headers, that guys get on the end of, and sometimes score - or head out of bounds more times than not. This makes me happy because it looks like the real stuff you see on TV.

Teammate AI is better in PES - the defensive help is quite realistic. I think the opponent AI is good too. Even on Amateur (yes, I'm old and I suck), if you do dumb things, the game will score on you.

The goals in FIFA always seemed to come from specific spots on the pitch year-after-year. Once you found those spots, you were golden. In PES though, I've seen all kinds of crazy goals from different spots, which I love. I had a low cross from the end-line (almost impossible to perform in FIFA's past) - going across the front of the goalie - ricochet in off a defender's back, for example.

Obviously it sucks for the licensing and the player names. You have to edit some team names, players, especially in the English Premier League since only Tottenham and Manchester United are fully licensed. I think we can all agree that it is annoying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally a step toward the right direction September 28, 2011

As a PES (Winning 11) fan since 99 and a very pissed Konami customer in the last couple of years, I am very happy and pleased this year. This PES by far better than any other PES on the current game console generations..

+ The graphics is revamped and stunning, beautiful.. (still some minor animations issues can be seen but you will not notice them)

+ The attack feels solid, passing is improved.

+ Team AI is unbelievably better than last year.

+ The defence system is changed than last year but it feels better (Still you have to redo the learning curve which might upset some customers.)

- Same cheesy menus/ soundtrack --> who care about the menus/ sound track!!!!!

- Some licence are missing .. this might be bad for those team fans.

In my opinion even this is not the most polished game but it is the most solid authentic football (soccer) game..

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome game, as usual... November 30, 2011
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is the fourth version of PES I play. I really liked the previous version (PES 2011). The current version is even better!

The gameplay is much fun (five stars). I'm not a professional player, but I make my goals...
The great advance in PES 2012 is the off-the-ball control. With this feature you can break you opponent defense...

The graphics could be better. I think it is time to start making soccer games in full HD (1080p).
One big problem of PES is the unauthorization by FIFA in using original teams uniforms, names, etc (- half star).

Comparing PES with FIFA, in general PES is better. Fifa gameplay is a bit tricky. Unless you are a professional player, FIFA could be a little bit anoying.

FIFA graphics are better than PES. In FIFA you can play with original teams uniforms, the names of teams are the same as real... In adittional, FIFA have teams all over the world (brazil league for example).

Though I quite liked PES 2012, this year I decided to buy FIFA too.

I almost forgot: I'm quite frustrated with data management PES 2012. In this version you have only 3 free disk space for saving teams tactics. You have to create more avatars to create/save more teams tactics (- half star).

This was my first impression about game. I'm playing ir about 2 days. So my oppinion about it can chance.

*One star penalization: data management, graphics and team uniforms, names, etc.
