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.

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..

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.

Great Game Left FIFA over it because of the technical and more realistic style of play. When You score goals it means something and takes a lot of ability to score. Overall it's a great game, just one negative is maybe the branding of teams or branding period but it is something you can change looking it up online but it's all worth it.

Before the FIFA fans start commenting, know that I own both games and the two really have very little in common. FIFA is clearly designed for the casual gamer who wants the simplicity of buying a game that has the majority of the editing and background work done for them (This IS a good thing). PES 2012 is for serious futbol fans who are truly invested and don't mind updating their teams rosters or making improvements throughout the period of ownership (Konami provides updates, but only as far as their licenses will let them). The game play for both games is also setup in a similar way. FIFA is much simpler/basic and the AI is a little easier and predictable even at the highest levels. Great for those who are new to soccer games. In PES you must know basic soccer strategy to be successful for any level above average. The graphics in both games (I use a PS3) are also different. In FIFA the backgrounds, players, and environment look very polished in that you can tell it is a video game as everything has a particular shine to it that just doesn't seem right. Don't get me wrong it looks great, but a little too great if that makes sense. In PES, assuming you have done some editing work, the players, the pitches, and the environments are as real as you can get currently. Actually import photographs, etc. I am really impressed with this years options for editing in both PES and FIFA.

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.
