    Playing it now.

    It's really good, I like it. The main gripe is with the nowmal play graphics which suck compared to Fifa. Gameplay-wise it feels much like PES's of old and THAT is never a bad thing imo

    Judgement is reserved until I've got the real thing in my hands (as always), but comparing PES and Fifa demo's reminds me how much I like PES :)

    Anyone else sampled it?

    Ninja Edit: It's damn annoying how you have to watch a massive long demo after every game, means I have to quit and start again :wallbash:

    Deffo worth it. If you ignore the graphics, the gameplay really is good

    Will give it a try when I've got the Xbox set up on the network again. We were planning on going Fifa this time round but if PES isn't as crap as it looks in the trailers then it might have a chance.

    The game play is still there. Just feels like a natural progression of the series. Can't see any major improvements from the demo.

    It's ok, nothing bad but nothing special. I think I might just jump over to FIFA. (coming from a long time PES fan aswell).

    Just getting tired of the small updates, FIFA has done much more in the past few editions...

    Having tried them both now, I'll probably be getting Fifa 09 when I've got the money. Pro Evo felt more or less exactly the same as before, and there's not enough there to warrant me spending £30-40 just to get the squad updates.

    I can't see how people like this game. It plays like a cheap arcade game.

    can't agree with that as PES has always been the best for realistic gameplay but those graphics just aint up to it imo - i'm dissapointed with PES progress as others mention above but will prolly still buy it cos i want all the latest teams etc..

    roll on PES2010 :eyebrow:

    I don't like football games, or football, but I downloaded it because my flatmates love them. I have to say, fifa looks great, good interface etc etc and playing the game seems far more fluid than PES. More lifelike and flowing. PES' menu system was crap. They are obviously trying to be trendy. It's inconsistent too. As soon as you are in the game the interface becomes clean with gradients everywhere. The graphics are pretty poor too.

    Of course, I'm never going to mention that in the pub again. Apparently PES has a slightly obsessive following.

    PES is far from realistic. I'm sorry but players like CR, VNR, Torres, etc don't move on an 8pt axis like they do in PES. The players play like robots and nothing is fluid about them. I got SOGs(wrong footed and off balance) no matter what angle I shot and it didn't matter what player I used. PES05 on my PSP plays better than PES09. I could careless about graphics considering I play football sims and they're 2d graphics.

    I'll give it another try tonight playing with every team.

    @Will PES is like Halo in fan base.

    You say poor gfx, though with everything on high and lots of AA and AF the fifa players look sometimes fat and almost comical in their apperance. But it's how a football games plays that should matter more than looks, and yeah I didn't like the look of PES09's new menu system but it's not different in terms of useability than last years.

    The actual fluidity of PES vs Fifa, doesnt that depend on the difficulty you have the game on and your own skill, as well as where the computer chooses to run your team mates into space etc, both still annoy me by not making obvious runs at times with players milling around behind a defender not even trying to run into space. But I like both games, so I'll play both! :D

    Load up Fifa for me right now because I'm playing it and I don't have the ability to run every single degree in a 360 degree ring around my players, they are on an axis too, you can go and get anywhere you want with a bit of one way and abit of anyother anyway, can't you? :p

    @LeMaltor. I do agree about player skill. I play Fifa on world class with assists off or lowest assist so I have more control of the ball on the pitch. I do hate how sometimes the rest of your team doesn't progress forward for set pieces or through balls.

    Of course you can't run every single degree but PES doesn't seem as fluid when making cuts or quick one touch passes. ex. CR should be able to out maneuver a lesser player say...Luke Young.

    Like I said I'll give PES09 another try and see if I improve movement wise after a few hours of cracking out on PES. Making goals so far is the easy part.
