If you are a soccer fan and have played many soccer games on your PC or any other gaming console you are sure to love and not just like the new Pro Evolution Soccer 2011, from KONAMI. If you have played other soccer games like FIFA than you might want to compare this game with that one but even after comparison I think this game stands out to be the best.
Freedom is basically engineered into this game. I have to admit I was not a great football player in my college days or schools days but in this game I am a Legend. Obviously I wasn’t a genius right at the beginning but the crisp, responsive and intuitive passing makes the game really very easy to play. There are many levels of difficulty. At first I started playing as an amateur player then I moved on to normal and then I straight away jumped to top player difficulty. While playing as an amateur scoring goals becomes really very easy as the opposition does not attack you that much or try to steal the ball from you. You can basically take the ball and walk right up to the goal and shoot after choosing a corner. As you increase the level of difficulty the opposition becomes more creative and aggressive and they try their best to snatch the ball from you.
The AI of the game is really very good and players are more alive to every situation, and it almost seems that they can read your intensions and where you might pass the ball or what your strategy might be. It makes the game more interesting and fun to play. While playing PES 2011, you will notice that positioning and passing is very critical.
Coming on to the graphics, I have to stress that the main menu looks stunning and sets you ready for a great adventure. This game has something which FIFA 2011 does not have and for me, it’s something very much needed, it’s the Champions League. The UEFA Champions League Football is the something for which I wait every year to happen and I watch each and every game and so for me a soccer game should include this League. Luckily PES 2011 has acquired the licenses and we can enjoy the full glory of the majestic league and also the energizing music and anthem.
The other modes like Manager Mode and Become a Legend mode are also very good and they are sure to make you sucked into the game for hours at an end. All I have to say is that if you want to play some real soccer which has stunning graphics and well modeled players then you should try this game.
