    PES 2011 continues the Pro Evolution Soccer revolution that started with last years instalment and delivers a playing experience that long term fans of the franchise are more accustomed to. With all the improvements it easy to say this is the best PES game in years.
  2. Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 is definitely an interesting sports game, and even though there are a few minor problems, it's just exciting.
  3. Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 is a reboot of the series: pace and reactions had toned down for a boost in realism and the "360 degrees pass" system does a great job in involving the player on the pitch. Unfortunately there's a consistent lack in animation quality that spoils the experience.
  4. There are still issues with animations, ball physics and AI but nothing that isn't easily forgiven as a quirk of the game. There is one week between the release dates of FIFA and Pro Evo and while it's not yet clear who will be touring the city in an open topped bus, at last PES has earned its place in the final.

    In talking about this game and writing this review I wish I could say I was talking about all the great features it has, but instead I find myself dismissing it for what it is not. It's not FIFA 11. Top down, FIFA 11 is just the better soccer game. But if you like customization and all kinds of user created content, the possibilities are endless.
  6. It's sad to see the PES franchise so far from what was unquestionably the peak of the series, its Pro Evolution Soccer 5 entry. PES 2011 is a heartbreaking step back from what we were hoping for.
  7. The result is competent and complex, but not convincing enough to raise any significant emotion other than impatience. It feels like a clockwork approximation of football, lacking the grace, variety and scope of FIFA.

This years pro evolution represents a reallistic alternative to the real thing. The new freedom opens up new avenues and new playing styles, passing has taken on a new dimension with the measure and timing becoming instrumental to success. The new angles available on the ball allows you to use the full size of the pitch, use your team mates as decoy options and increase or decrease the tempo of play. Expand

Brilliant! if you want to give the ball to your star player and run to goal, or rate a game upon its graphics, then play a different football game. This needs wit and the love of the actual game. If you are a true footballer, then you will definitely enjoy it. You will feel helpless while trying to master the controls, but give yourself sometime and you will enjoy it to the fullest! Good job Konami keep it up! Expand

    Having played both Fifa 11 and PES 11, i find this year's installment of PES to be a significantly improved game compared to last year's. IHaving played both Fifa 11 and PES 11, i find this year's installment of PES to be a significantly improved game compared to last year's. I still find the fifa series more realistic, everything about it seems like real football (soccer) , as with pes, the way players move seem very robotic and awkward, the ball physics aren't quite right and half the players in the game don't looks anything like there real life counterparts. All in all, its a decent football game that is fun for a while but im afraid fifa is still the better of the two. Expand

    It's almost impossible to shoot a penalty, the keepers can get some impossible balls, the menu is confusing, there is still a lot of teamsIt's almost impossible to shoot a penalty, the keepers can get some impossible balls, the menu is confusing, there is still a lot of teams missing on Libertadores Cup and some missing Leagues too... The Game Engine is good, the AI is harder, the graphics keep improving each year and the controls got better. Still a Must-Have game only because the FIFA franchise is the only competitor in the market and it sucks. Expand

The bare fact is that this game sucks and it's definitely one of the worst (if not the worst) entries in the series! Those who say otherwise are either fools or paid to do so! Chriscolman, mike1586, arziankorpen and the rest of the KONAMI employees below who awarded 10s to this game are just trying to make people buy their lame product using the oldest trick in the book! No one in the right mind could rate this game with 10 or even 9! Expand
