Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

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

4.0 out of 5 stars Much better than Fifa 12 19 Dec 2011
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
It is the first PES game I ever tried and I have to say I'm impressed with it. I frankly find the graphics awesome for a Wii and everything looks very mature and grown-up. Comparing it to Fifa 12 it cleary falls down on the License but that negative is made up with the following:

Gameplay/Handling - I enjoy the pointing and control of all your players. I don't see myself going back to Fifa.
Graphics - Very good and realistic for a Wii. Compared to Fifa players look grown up and not like children.
Longetivity - It has 5 difficulty levels and it gets tricky alright on level 4. Much better than Fifa 12 where you outscore your opposition on the hardes level (only 3 difficulty levels in Fifa 12)

Overall - I love it and will not go back to Fifa 12.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best version of PES 2012. Fact. 5 Oct 2012
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I gave the Wii version a try last year as i had never played a PES on the Wii, and hoped it had to PS2 style of gameplay over the turd that has become the PS3 and 360 versions in recent years. And boy what a surprise because it was the best 14.99 i ever spent on a football game. The way it plays is so great, it harks back to when PES rules the world as the best football game available. The graphics are as good as they can be for the Wii, but once you play it with a control pad, not nunchuk and wiimote style, you will feel like PES has never been away! These past few years i have wasted time on PS3 versions or gone back and got the PS2 versions when the hybrid mix the Wii offers is better than both. It maintains the master league, although it does not have the drastic updates the PS3 and even PS2 have had in recent years for some reason. It still remains as addictive as ever though. The Wii version has online play, but you will find people dc whenever they are going to lose as there is no record of connection or win/loss kept if you dc. It has the same in depth editor as the PS2, and has a wii specific mode in Champions Road, but does not have Become a Legend, which is a shame. But its all about the gameplay and thats where PES 2012 on the Wii rules the world. I am only hoping with optimism for PES 2013, as it will likely be the last PES on the Wii, that the update the Master League to at least the PS2 standard, and perhaps add Become a Legend. I know this isnt likely as they havent already in previous years, but i can still hope. But this is the best PES i have played since PES 2008 on the PS2, fact.

3.0 out of 5 stars Same as pes 2011 8 Nov 2011
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Pretty good game just a shame its almost the same as PES 2011 there not much difference between this and 2011 only thing iv noticed is that goalkeepers on this one are so much better than any other PES game. The master league menus are the same theres just not much difference but still its the best football game you can buy on the wii and its fun to play Just hope next years they make a new look master league menu as this one is getting boring now.

Really cool game! The graphic is not like play station and xbox of course, but it's ok. I play with the classic controller, not really nice playing with the "new style".

Wii is not the best console for games at all.
so if You have a Wii and do not want to change for a PSP....
this is a nice game to have in your library even if you will need a little bit of time to get use to the controls.
