The camera angles are limited. The players are boxy and do not have a wide range of mobility. It "feels" like a throwback to the 90's.
Two major drawbacks are the computer which systematically scores on a free kick and the "accumulated fatigue" implementation, which doesn't take into account real life recovery time. A player after two/three games is almost exhausted and he needs 4/5 weeks to completely recover! I just turned off that option, but is a shame developers didn't realize how unrealistic that feature is.
Started playing it on PS3 for last couple of years, always buying new version.
This one (PES2012) is great but all that came was expected.
Graphics are excellent. Players moves are cool and real. Biggest improvement is passing and crossing. Tried passing without any assistance and it is hard, but it brings up new level in playing. AI is improved and there is no matrix where you can project the passing and cut, nor you can easily stop AI attack.
Only reason game will get 4 stars from me is more of a personal thing. I am playing the game as manual as possible, so I like to do defense manually as well. Problem is that with pressure and adding another player to apply pressure you really are not controlling the defense. Looking for improvement in this area.
However, game is almost perfect and I would totally recommend comparing to FIFA....
Completed EPL. Had fun. Won English cup as well. Almost impossible to beat Barcelona in Champions League Finals on professional level.
Then started playing Become a Legend and without any doubt this is an awesome feature. I know they had it on previous versions but first time played and I can say it is fantastic addition. Thinking of giving a game 5 stars.
If Manager is as nearly cool as Become a Legend, PES 2012 really deserves 5 stars...
Only down side for me is the online play. Communication is poor, but for me the biggest problem:
- You can only play against US players
I have recently moved from the UK and bought this game so that my brother and I could play each other and have some fun when he is up late! Unfortunately, unlike F1F4 I cannot choose to play him even in a head-to-head match, as Europe plays on a separate server. So, while he can play somebody who is in France, Spain or the Netherlands, he can't "invite" me (or I him) to a head-to-head against each other. Bad form, Konami!
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.
You can customize the un-licenced teams and leagues. Here's an option file you can download and copy in your PS3 save games files, so you can play with real player names, jerseys and logos:

-Graphics (This could be better in PES 2013 with the new Fox Engine)
