Pro Evolution Soccer 2009

Recommended Posts

I downloaded the demo a few days ago and was very happy with what I saw.

Sadly enough as far as I know there will only be four Greek teams in the game (NT included), all four of them fully licensed though. The teams besides the NT are AEK, OSFP, PAO.

For a trailer and screenshots, see here: http://www.konami-data.com/pr/pes2009.php

Game's been out for a week or so and I have to say I'm slightly disappointed ... although I still favor PES over FIFA :D. Looks ok graphically but the gameplay's not really improved. Will post some ingame screens when I find the time :)!

Does PES have official Champions League rights?

How would it work though, beacuse the old PES didnt have nearly enough leagues to play a full CL league in Manager Mode? But that champions league thing looks pretty cool

Fixed your link ;) - Genome

Yup it's true ... it has a "Champions League" modus with all the teams from the CL group stage ... I was surprised to see they got the license, but then again CL is from UEFA and not FIFA so ... :)

Very surprised to see there getting some more rights. Good for them. But I am happy with fifa this year. I was big time dissapointed with PES online last year.

Even an article on uefa.com:

UEFA Champions League PES 2009 out now

The new PES 2009 video game features – for the first time – European football's blue-riband club competition, the UEFA Champions League.

Exclusive four-year licensing deal

The game is part of an exclusive four-year licensing deal between Konami Digital Entertainment Co., Ltd and UEFA. PES 2009 will feature exclusive elements and attributes of the competition to create a unique UEFA Champions League mode within the game. "The Pro Evolution Soccer series is synonymous with football being played at the highest level, which makes it perfect for hosting the best club football competition in the world," said UEFA. "We are delighted that PES 2009 will feature the UEFA Champions League and look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with Konami."

Found an interesting review of PES which also compares it to its rival FIFA. Glad to see there are no serious online problems on PS3, but the rest of the review has me second guessing PES overall.

Here is the review

So does anyone here agree with this?

After playing it for a while I feel like maybe PES 08 was better than its newer counterpart ... but it still beats FIFA imho.

Btw, for the Greek fans of the game there is also http://www.wehellas.gr/ which I can really recommend, with apparently also a stats database on the forum (you'll have to register though).
