  • Summary: PES 2010 focuses on enhancing the excitement of matches between players, making for a truly challenging experience that constantly tests the player. Intuitive zonal defending covers spaces and players need to look constantly for new ways to attack. PES 2010 focuses on being a real soccer simulation, as it requires both strategic play and quick reactions, as in real life. In addition to key out-field elements, goalkeepers are more versatile and with abilities matching those of modern shot-stoppers. The game's referees have also been reworked, with smarter AI elements allowing them to make more balanced calls during matches. PES 2010 has undergone a major visual revamp, with its celebrated player likenesses and animations now even closer to those of real-life players - including live player expressions to be depicted with an improved lighting system which differentiates between various conditions!

  1. We enjoyed PES 2010's slower pacing, but FIFA 10 is slightly better. Especially FIFA's extensive licenses are missing from PES 2010.
  2. The king is back on top, on the modding-friendly PC at least. [Christmas 2009, p.93]
  3. Immaculate physics. [Christmas 2009, p.84]
  4. This year it is really a pity that Konami forgot to properly convert PES to the PC because Pro Evo could have won the virtual football battle against EA Sports - especially with graphics.
  5. Still playable, but coasting on a years-old reputation that needs to be renewed sharpish if Pro Evo is to stay relevant. [Dec 2009, p.82]
  6. Visuals: improved. Tactics: Improved. Chorals: Improved. Collision Detection: Worsened. Team Mates AI: Debilitated. Main Commentary: Absolutely annoying. Result: Stay with last years PES. [Dec 2009]
  7. Improvements are there, but lean toward the superficial side of this prolific franchise. [Issue#26, p.53]

    After PES 6, this game from the PES series by KONAMI is the second in my favorite PES games list. I had a great time playing it with my friends. It had amazing shooting, real pace, it was great. Expand
