  • Summary: The PRO EVOLUTION SOCCER franchise has long been regarded as offering incredible realism and control, however PRO EVOLUTION SOCCER 2011 will reinvigorate the series with the most advanced set of improved gameplay additions, control options and to catch up with the evolution of the real-life soccer. Central to its total freedom of play, PRO EVOLUTION SOCCER 2011 introduces a power bar for each player that allows the user to determine the exact strength and placement of every pass and shot. Balls can now be spread absolutely anywhere with surgical precision, with long balls into space, short passes to feet, and intricate one-twos allowing the player to dictate play and control the tempo of a match.

    A step in the right direction: more realism and challange. The missing official licenses and wrong squads and the sometimes buggy AI are the only downsides.
  2. Despite unsolved bugs and non-updated teams, PES 2011 has lots of novelties, excellent commentary and a great graphics.
  3. Nov 11, 2010
    The return of the realism is very welcome, but PES 2011 isn't yet as round as a football should be.
  4. Oct 25, 2010
    After a run-and-pass arcade footballer, then pick up PES. Anything else, then FIFA's ahead by a long shot.
  5. Nov 22, 2010
    A technical improvement on past efforts, let down by a lack of atmosphere and irritating AI flaws. [Nov 2010, p.92]
  6. Dec 1, 2010
    Konami still haven't figured out how serious and realistic they wanted their game to be, and made some silly mistakes. PES 2011 has occasional strokes of genius, and they really push the series forward… But it's not worthy of a gold medal yet.
  7. After swimming with sharks, Pro Evolution Soccer has undergone a facelift with this new episode, particularly successful, although perfectible, but placed on the right track.
