"And speaking of ugly sea creatures here is the latest in Shingo "Seabass" Takatsuka's Pro Evolution Soccer series."

Pro Evo is the best football game ever. FIFA just is not fun to play at all. Pro Evo 2011 looks amazing, just how in-depth everything is.

Can someone please explain what all this octupus stuff is refering to? I watched every World Cup game and I have no idea

@Venatio:
There's an octopus named Paul that foretold that Spain would be in the finals and win.

There was an octopus that correctly predicted all of Germany's World Cup Results (whether they'd win or lose). And by predicted, I mean chose food which had the country flag of the team that won on it.

An octopus predicted the correct result for every Germany game + the final.
He's called Paul

While the players don't look that great, the animations are pretty good. Also PES was way better than FIFA back in the day, didn't play any of the new ones since 2003 or so.

That trailer sure had a lot of text and info, which seemed a bit much for just a reveal trailer.
 
Either way, my brother will happily play this over FIFA. For me, I will stick to my Football Manager.

@Venatio:  There was an octopus that was predicting who would win each game and im sure he was mostly right he guessed that Spain would win and well they did.

@random_guy23:  PES hasnt been good since this generation. I myself loved PES back in the PS2 days but now FIFA is so much better now. I really want PES 2011 to be great but I seriously doubt that they are able to improve that much over last years(2010 was horrible) game in just a year.

Dear Konami, 
This is 2010. You're allowed to use more than one polygon per person in the crowd now. Stop being lazy.
 
Ta,

When the hell will Konami learn that they have to get the whole Premier League license. It is the best league in the world. Serie A is for greasy pussys. Premier League and La Liga are the only ones that mather. Bundesliga and Eredivisie are also pretty fun to watch but only have a few good teams in them.

Your right. Lets use 400,000 triangles instead of 100,000 on things you barely see and don't give a fuck about if your actually playing. Its the crowd. The field is where it matters.

Can you flying-kick Spaniards in the chest? That'd be awesome. 
The defenders in this trailer were pretty appalling, but football games tend to focus on attack, I guess.

Posted by liako21

Hopefully they have improved the defense and some other little things like taking quick near post corners that always go in it seems.  
 
After meeting and playing with the guy who knew the game so well and was beating me by exploiting the game and not actually playing good football it made me realize how much PES has fallen behind :( 
 
I really hope they fix these issues.

Only if you're playing as Holland. In fact it get's you a special achievement - Earn your Orange Belt.

I want an extra mode where you can practice fouls on Blatter!

"Ouch"  You had to bring that up didn't you.

@Chavtheworld: Haha! Excellent naming there. 
@Hilbert: Yup :) That was pretty brutal and he was very lucky to stay on the pitch. There's a physical game and then there's kickboxing.

I've never played any games from this series, can someone who has explain to me why I would want this instead of the next EA Fifa?

Because before EA got its act together around 2008-09, PES was by far the better playing game.

im liking the camera angle

Posted by Hyper_Bunny_Meow

The game looks pretty slick although I wonder why almost all the videos I see for football (soccer) games is all about the goals and shows very little of what you can do  defensively as it would be nice to see some crunching tackles and stunning saves.
Posted by TekZero

Watching the world cup reminded me of playing Fifa 96 (I think I even still have somewhere) with my brother as kids.  I might get this.  

Posted by ptys

Funny how before the World Cup I had no idea who all these players were, now I'm really looking for some more football, this might be the ticket!

Posted by MarvinPontiac

I've always appreciated how video-gamey this series is compared to EA's FIFA. It's got this undeniably Japanese feel to it; clinical menus, golf course fly-by music, interesting menu wording. Especially Winning Eleven 8; which instantly took me back when sports games were more fun (Double Dribble, Baseball Stars, Super Baseball Simulator 1000 come to mind).

You can DRIBBLE?

game looks gorgeous, and actually looks like a huge improvement over the last iterations. but fifa will still probably be better

Posted by heavyplay

Looks like they failed to fix one major issue with the last few PES games: the horrible, horrible presentation. I went over to the dark side last year and got FIFA 10 but I think I'll go back to Pro Evo when this seasons batch comes out. 
 
And what was up with that weird green targeting thing. After freezing the screen and doing all that scanning, all he did was hit the button for a through-pass.

Posted by CharlieTuna

 The greatest thing about Pro Evo which can be seen in this video:
 
A defenders does not automatically win the ball by just being close to you, if you get your body between him and the ball you have the advantage, he will have to foul you if he tries even a standing tackle. Until FIFA fixes this bullshit it will always remain a joke of a game, presentation be damned.

Posted by DuhQbnSiLo

Fifa is so far ahead of Evo it's a joke

Posted by MeatSim

Just as expected it's still soccer.
