Which one do I get?
I'd say on balance Fifa this year, particularly if you've played PES a lot in the past.
Fifa's drastically changed in the last couple of years by basically borrowing gameplay off Pro Evo, you can even set the controls to be almost identical. Pro Evo recently I feel has gone down a more arcadey route, it's certainly easier to pick up and play than fifa in their current incarnations. However, Fifa does have a lot of depth, especially with manual controls- you get a much bigger variety of goals. The collision engine is also hilarious, particularly if you're playing against someone like toomanykooks, who has the tackling skills of Paul Scholes.
but my gamertag is kisslikelizards if you want to add me!
i feel the ref always sides with the home team, thats my new excuse.
but fifa is rad, its fun even if you're a bit shit like me.
do you find it really hard to score?
I go mental when i actually manage to get a goal.
just need to not be so button bashy infront of goal, i get all excited.
rob earnshaw is actually awesome in it, poses questions about how realistic it is.
That tells you all you need to know about realism.
with superhuman strikers!
Have you bothered with any of the adidas live season stuff? I've heard it's riddled with aids.
but haven't noticed it doing anything.
i need more practice.
then go for FIFA
I think they really sorted out the passing, and the variety of different goals that you score how increased. I couldn't go back to FIFA.
I think most of the criticism of Pro Evo 09 is the lack of progress from Konami with this generation of consoles- 3 games in and the online mode hasn't been usable, and there's still the same amount of teams, no real progress in master league and the game doesn't seem to be as fluid as the old ps2/xbox versions. Edit mode is back, but it seems daft how they took it out in the first place..
I think I played a demo of 08 and it just seemed so slow and unresponsive.
I'm now trying to sell it to buy FIFA. The online mode is actually unplayable
its really good this year
then avoid PES like the plauge, they still havent fixed it... in fact they dont seem the slightest bit closer then the first incarnation, still totally unplayable onlinel... fifa is awesome, esp. the 10 vs 10 matches! where u control a player on the team, like the ultimate online footy experiance and its fluid!
