A Pretty cool game,
This review is from: Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 (PS3) (Video Game)
So far i don't know what all the moaning and groaning is about, even some dummy said somewhere in a review that he couldn't see what improvements there were, he must have muck in his eyes then and that goes for anyone else that disagrees with me, this is a much better game than before, of course it takes time to build up your team, your not gonna do that in 5 minutes are you
so far i'd say it was a much better and improved game it's a pity that some dumb dumbs can't see that

That dummy was me and I have played this game every year. If you have played PES 2011 & PES 2010, you'd know that nothing much has changed. No one mentioned it should be easy. The online master league was stated as 'unfair'. Get a dictionary and improve your understanding of simple English.

I'm not talking nonsense, i've played the 2011 version and now this version and the ball passing is better in this one than 2011, did you not notice that? also i was constantly being offside all the time in 2011, in 2012 it's far less as players try to stay on side, did you not notice that either? i thought the online master league from the very start was unfair back in 2011 version and if anything i'd come close to saying fixed, and what the hell as my english got to do with a dictionary? it's just like a movie or music as when it's good they say it's crap and when it's crap they say it's good and just like this game thats the dumbest part of all with people saying it's crap when it's clearly not, i'm sure you can do a better job then?

That's just your problem Sir. You put words into people's mouth. At any point in my review did I say: 'this game must be easier'...? Odd little touches like players staying onside are worth £40.00 are they? Give over.. re-read my review, then read my PES 2011 review and then actually see what is being said. This game is promoting an overhaul - it's nothing of the sort. It's added a few directions in play (as you mentioned) to the 2010 physics - the extra content is the same as 2011, the format is the same bar a new wallpaper, the problems online are the same... it's also adding complete rubbish like cut scenes that hold things up and then dressing it up as 'improvement'.
I was expecting more for my money. The stupid problems are still there, the goalkeepers are still terrible..
Considering how many years these guys have been making games, why do these probs still occur?
I will never buy a FIFA game - when this game is disappointing, it lets real Konami fans down. Konami should be pulling out all the stops year after year, instead of slowly moving sideways like EA sports do. All I know is that two companies have monopolised making games for this sport.. and both of them are focusing on sales targets, instead of making a brilliant representation. That's the truth.

staying onside was not the only improvements, even the goalkeepers were much improved and i thought the cut scenes were a bit of fun add on but i like the new gameplay so far, the only thing that gets me is the name of the teams but other than that i really can't see any major problems unlike the 2010 version
Mind you if people don't appriciate anything worthwhile then they could always go back to playing on the old pcs of the 80's and now that was crap

Staying onside wasn't a problem for me on 2011, so to be honest mate, I don't see why it's a major improvement. The through balls this year are a step back. What's the point in staying onside, if your through balls don't make it 'through'?
The shooting is still laboured. Everything has been made harder and less fun apart from dribbling, which is now too easy & downright unrealistic. So, from this guy who has played and bought every version, I am not impressed and won't be buying future releases until one is drawn up, that is actually worth the money.
Different shoulder feints, the way players fall over and look, the way the shirt gets dirty.. is all immaterial to me.
These are the things game-makers pawn off as 'new game-play'. Tell me one time you pay attention to any of that when in the middle of a game? If you are like me, never.

but getting the through balls is all about timming and i've scored some good goals with the through balls
if this game is not so up to scratch and expectation then how comes many are say it's a great game and giving it 4 and 5 stars, i even checked the reviews on the .com site and mostly the same thing
In reply to an earlier post on 1 Nov 2011 20:07:41 GMT
Because people always do mate. Every 'decent' effort is regarded 5 stars nowadays by the majority, which is why most games don't cut the mustard any more. Too many people are happy with 'decent', instead of 'good'. Look at Football Manager. That game is like self mutilation, but the same nerds rate it 5 stars every year. Easily pleased gamers.
FIFA is utter crud and that gets Platinum, game of the year and 5 star reviews every edition. It's never about the majority. The majority likes utter crud.
Never trust game critics who are paid and bribed to write good reviews and never listen to 5 star customer reviews either. Most are just not true. Nothing is worth 5 stars. 5 star to me means 'a game that never needs updating'.
There isn't a game out there apart from Assassins Creed II, that comes close to having it just perfect.

I've never played the Assassins Creed games and so i'm not sure what there like but i do love playing those uncharted games, they are really good and those would merit 5 stars and i'm so looking forward to the 3rd one and i think hitman will be something worth playing too

oooooo... look up Assassins Creed II on here mate. It's a tenner and on platinum. It comes with all the DLC and the best game I have ever played. :D I'm not even a fan of the genre. You don't need to have played the first one and I am sure you will enjoy it. It's top fun. I bought 'Assassins Creed Brotherhood' to play straight after (also a tenner) and can't wait. Fantastic value. 70% through ACII and determined to complete it.. It's that good. I never complete games either. :D
I played the demo of Uncharted and haven't really given them a chance tbh. Same with Hitman. :) That's why I was surprised with Assassins Creed, it's not normally my thing role playing/shooting etc, but I loved it.
Lately, I tend to wait until games go platinum, apart from PES. It's the best way to avoid being stung by guff that just don't deliver.

well i've also come up with the idea to hire my games in future as being i complete games in days ( well sometimes anyway) i think it would be cheaper still to hire them rather than buy them
as thats what i do mostly with the blu-ray movies now too
and then you wouldn't of wasted say £40 plus on buying it new but getting them platinum is not a bad idea either
on the ps3 psn theres a new weekly games review programme which is helpful as it shows the upcoming games in gameplay
