PES 2012 continues Konami’s determination to listen to its fanbase and make key improvements to the aspects the audience demands. Thus, the focus for PES 2012 is to ensure the highest level of playability, challenge and realism for the game, whilst also improving the level of control offered to users. Fundamental changes to all areas of its AI have been made following user feedback. Similarly, teamwork is central to how the game moves and feels, enabling fans to replicate anything they would see in a real match.

Active AI: PES 2012 strives to recreate the movement and team ethic of real football, and Active AI plays a vital role in this. Players will no longer flock to a ball, but will make intelligent runs to create space and draw markers, while others will make themselves available, instigate runs, and visibly call for the ball. In the box, support players will make diagonal decoy runs, full backs will overlap on the wings and midfielders will provide support from behind the ball. The new Active AI routines ensure the flow of a match is more natural, with specific routines for both attack and defence. Hold-up play implemented last year has been improved for easier control with more effectiveness. Defending as a unit plays a key role, and players now hold a tight line, check on the distance between each other, track back as a unit, and fill in for each other. As individuals they also make better decisions to close space, block and tackle.

Jostling: Physicality is a key component in PES 2012, with player strength one of their key individual attributes, and having a vital effect on how they can use their strength to win the ball in a one-on-one situation. Players now fall depending on how they are challenged, with more realistic animations used to show the challenges between two jostling players.

Graphics: Several aspects of the game have enjoyed a huge overhaul. Player facial expression is now much richer and the lighting effects are more natural, while new cameras show off the huge variety of pitch-side movement, with more detail on and around the game than ever before.

Off The Ball Control: Equally key to opening up PES 2012 is the ability to highlight any player at any time. A new system has been implemented, allowing users to switch players with ease. In defence, the right stick is now used to select any outfield player, while set pieces are also enhanced through its use. Goal kicks, corners, free kicks and throw-ins now let the user quickly take control of any player off the ball, enabling clever runs which create space for an attack.

Referee AI: Referees are also crucial to general game flow and their AI has been greatly enhanced to ensure fewer interruptions to play. Decisions are improved, and advantage is played much more regularly in offside and free kick scenarios. As such, refs will only intervene when truly necessary, but they will show cards if necessary once play has broken down.

Pass Support: Accessed through the new personal player settings, Pass Support allows users to determine the level of AI assistance when passing the ball. Players can opt for one of five settings from full support, right up to full veteran setting which switches off all assistance so that the direction, weight and speed of every pass is at their disposal.

PES 2012: Pro Evolution Soccer

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!

PES 2012: Pro Evolution Soccer

This is a very good football game. I enjoyed it very much. It's going to be even better with updates and file patches, that you can download them from the internet.

PES12

Extra, good price.

PES 2012

PES 2012 is just an excellent game, very close to real football! Very detailed - a good example is when your playing you can actually hear the coach and subs speaking with their respective languages. Its just a pity I bought it a bit late!

PES 2012: Pro Evolution Soccer

PES 2012: Pro Evolution Soccer is a great game, with some improvment against FIFA 12. It has superb graphics, and easily is the best around. Few games have the staying power of PES, and this remains a game that you'll come back to for months on end.

PES 2012: Pro Evolution Soccer

PES 2012: Pro Evolution Soccer is a very good game. It has excellent graphics, and is a must-have for every football fan.

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.

PES 2012: Pro Evolution Soccer

PES 2012 is a great game, but there are some areas it could be improved. Zavvi, none the less, was fantastic.

PES 2012

PES 2012 is the best football game out there.

PES 2012: Pro Evolution Soccer
