The new Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 demo is out, and we have the download link, initial thoughts by popular reviews, previews and videos.
IGN said that the new PES 2011 “first impressions are heartening, as the front end has been given a thorough scrub-up. It’s still not quite the match for FIFA’s glistening menus, but it has both a charm of its own and, more importantly, an added level of functionality. This is most explicit in the team selection mode, which utilises a drag and drop system that’s so intuitive you wonder why it hasn’t been done before. Changing tactics and formations is now simple and fun, and the interminable menu trawl that used to precede every serious minded game of PES has been confined to the past.”
The creators also warn demo testers to play between 10-20 games before they can truly notice the changes from the last version, because apparently there’s a lot under the hood, which doesn’t meet the eye immediately.
While PES 2011 doesn’t come close to Fifa11 in terms of design, especially since Fifa11 has the most advanced Kit and Boot design ever, it could offer an appealing gameplay which can give it the edge both on PC and on consoles.
