PES 2010 – My first impression
I have been playing PES 2010 for a week now. It is the preview version and it is for PC platform.So this is not my final view on this game.
Let me tell you some good some OK and some bad stuff about this franchise.
The user interface, graphical developments are faboulous. The game looks really good and the font type, use of colours are simply amazing.
The version i have does not include UEFA Champions League, Europa League, some visuals are missing in the Master League and also there is no online mode available.
The dribbling system changed in a way. It is more realistic now. However it effects the playability. It is really hard to dribble. The players accelerate more realistically. Again a problem for action lovers. PES 2010 is more of a simulation this time.
The position you play your players effect their ability. If you put a winger to a defensive midfield position he looses quite a big amount of his ability. You see the ability with numbers up to 100. It drops around 10-20 points per player when you misposition them. There is a card and slider system as well. I will write another article or share a video about that. I can tell that you will be spending much more time in formation screens this year.
The loading screen is gone. When you start the match via a “Quit Watching” tab you start to see the stadium you will be playing in. Then comes the players from tunnel and match starts. I have not seen a big improvement in fan animations.
In the version i had the latest transfers were not in place yet. Such as Zlatan in Barcelona.
Be A Legend mode is more detailed. The camera angles are really well implemented. It is a great mode to play this time.
I will continue to update you with my impressions. It is to early to grade this game. Now i wait for FM 2010 review code. I will write down my impressions of that game in the weekend.
