Quiông chồng verdict

It's not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but it is a svào indication that Konami has realised what went wrong with previous efforts và has steered the title baông xã on trackRead full verdict


(colonyinvest.net) - Pro Evolution Soccer has enjoyed an illustrious history. If you had khổng lồ compare the series to a real-life football team then it would undoubtedly be Liverpool. Like Liverpool, the Konangươi title was the early benchmark setter in terms of the console football game. It was a trailblazer and football syên ổn purists heaped praise upon it for tackling the game in the right way. After all, this is the beautiful game that we"re talking about.

But, again like Liverpool, the series has suffered in recent years. So often the pretender lớn PES"s throne, EA"s offering, FIFA (undoubtedly now the Manchester United of the football game world), has slowly, but surely, become the undisputed number one football title. But can the lathử nghiệm incumbent, Pro Evolution Soccer 2011, prevent the series from going the way that the once mighty Reds have sầu in recent months (i.e., tits up) or has the once-proud-king had its day?


We"ll start with gameplay because this is undoubtedly the most crucial aspect of a football slặng. The reason that FIFA is now seen as the top title is that EA started to lớn focus on gameplay rather than just having all the official kits & the best animations. Sure, these are nice touches, but when you"re playing your mates, or some random kid halfway across the world via the online option, all you really care about is that the game plays out in a realistic manner. And PES 2011 doesn"t disappoint when it comes khổng lồ gameplay. Although it does surprise.

The first few matches you play will lead you inlớn believing that you"ve wandered out of Konami"s game và inlớn another - it really does appear that different. At least, on first impressions it does. Once you"ve sầu settled inkhổng lồ it though (và cranked the match tốc độ up lớn +1), you will begin khổng lồ appreciate the differences và realise that the familiar PES is lurking there, underneath. And, whisper this quietly, not the poor PES variations of the last couple of years, but the brilliant PES of 2005 và 2006.

The first change you will notice is that the camera angles used for the default setting are a bit weird. You get a nice side on view, a la Sky Sports" football coverage for kichồng off, và the pitch looks decidedly skew-whiff for corners and goal-kicks, but you"ll soon get used lớn this. What will take you a bit longer lớn get used to lớn is PES 2011"s new “total control” which means an “enhanced 360-degree passing ratio”. If you"re confused as khổng lồ what this means, then let us put it in simpler terms - the passing is now much harder.


But, once you begin khổng lồ tame it, you come to lớn realise that it is vastly improved. No longer will a quick tap of the pass button find an unmarked team-mate, you"ll now have sầu to lớn ayên & judge pass lengths yourself, which is made a tad easier using the new power-gauge (which also comes in handy for shooting, which has improved, but isn"t greatly different). As a result of the pass-reinvention, through balls are bachồng lớn their PES best, with defence splitting passes now being the reward of any player who can master this aspect khổng lồ the game.

Another big difference, with the onus being on the word big, is that players can now kiông chồng the ball much further và much harder. This is more realistic, but it does mean that it"s harder lớn assess just how long to lớn hold the long-pass button for a cross-field ball. However, it also means that, finally, you"ll be able to get a decent clearance from the baông xã, and put the ball lớn safety - rather than simply teeing up an onrushing midfielder 30-yards out - an aspect that PES has always sorely lacked.

Goalkeepers have sầu had a major overhaul in PES 2011 it seems as well, with more realistic animations, và a far greater array of save sầu techniques on offer, including some very impressive instinct reactions. Don"t worry though traditionalists, the goalkeepers on PES 2011 are still guilty of the same mind-numbing errors that they always have been.


Another gameplay aspect that hasn"t escaped the PES surgeon’s knife is defending. Defenders will now hold their positions, rather than charging in, and jostle with attackers. However, we found this new defender AI to lead to lớn a few problems - sometimes defenders would hold positions at the wrong time and look a bit static. It was a bit like watching John Terry play.

Players also appear to be a bit more physical than on previous versions, with plenty of shoulder argy-bargy going on, and stronger players often out-muscling their weaker opponents. Drogba, for example, is an absolute monster on the game if you can get him running on the shoulder of the last defender.

A final aspect of the gameplay that is worth mentioning is that it is now possible lớn map skills to lớn the right analogue stichồng in advance of the match, dependent on individual player"s abilities. So, expect khổng lồ see plenty of YouTube vids with clips of Mesmê mệt, Ronalvì & the likes terrorising defenders in the coming months.


The tactics & manager side has seen a huge rekiến thiết, which some PES purists will possibly see as unneeded. Every detail of a match pcầu thang now be pre-planned, with tactics even customisable in 15-minute blocks dependent on whether you"re winning, drawing or losing. You can let a manager take control of your team, who may select the starting XI on form rather than the default line-up, or, as per the traditional PES route, you can customise the team yourself using either complex, or simple settings. One nice improvement on the tactics side is that you can now simply drag and drop players into position as per Football Manager.

As with every PES update, there is also a raft of differences with the gameplay options, menus và so forth that we won"t go inlớn too much detail here - after all, you"ll want some surprises when you load your disc & fire up your console. The most notable inclusion, or rather exclusion, is the laông xã of Mark Lawrenson as co-commentator, who has been replaced by ITV"s Jlặng Beglin. Sure, the commentary is still pretty crap - but at least you don"t have lớn put up with Lawro"s whiny voice anymore.


During matches there are some new little touches that also sit well with us. Firstly, stats as the match progresses - for example a shots on/off target stat after you"ve hit a free-kick inlớn the stvà. And secondly, match sounds have sầu improved, with more realistic crowd singing (“You are my Solskjaer” when Man Utd are playing for example) và new PA sounds, such as the amount of minutes added on, or an announcement of substitutions.

A final word must go to lớn the looks of PES 2011. As always, player likeness is absolutely spot on (at least in the most part) & the overall graphical experience is much fresher than PES 2010. The pitches look beautifully sliông chồng, or terribly stodgy - depending on the weather conditions - và the stadiums are fantastic. And, for the teams that Konami has the licenses for, the kit accuracy & detail is incredible.


Verdict

Pro Evolution Soccer is not so much an evolution, but a revolution. Loyal fans of the series, who have stuông xã with it through the bad times, are rewarded with a title that has been completely re-worked; for the better. Whereas the annual PES update in the last few years has merely seen the occasional superficial change, the 2011 version really does feel like a massive step up, in terms of gameplay, upon last year"s effort. It"s not so different that PES specialists will struggle khổng lồ get khổng lồ grips with it - but it is definitely different enough to make them sit up and pay attention.

It"s not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but it is a svào indication that Konami has realised what went wrong with previous efforts & has steered the title bachồng on traông chồng. In terms of the annual PES v FIFA war, then, if you read our FIFA reviews, it is still clear that EA is leading the way. But, PES 2011 offers a glimmer of hope that the glory days could once again be returning around the fields of Konamày Road.
