That's a hard one to answer. FIFA is making some serious strides, but I'm still not sold on that impact engine at all. The tactical defending, however, is utterly fantastic and the close ball control is great too. They've actually taken a large leaf out of PES' book. The latter is shaping up very nicely this year as well...not as shiny as FIFA (never will be, but that's fine), I think it offers a better control setup at the moment, though again there are still things to be ironed out.
I don't want to make a judgement call on either yet because for these, you really need to plough a good 20-30 hours into them to see how they stand up.
There are some things to note for both, though:
- This year's FIFA plays very differently to last year's, mainly due to the defensive changes and impact engine, and longtime fans could find themselves having to familiarise themselves all over again...which, frankly, I think is a good thing!
- This year's PES builds upon the improvements of last year's effort in almost every way.
It'll be a very close race this year, but we rather think there's space for both in the discerning footie fan's collection.
Pro Evo hasn't been anywhere near Fifa since PES 06, expect the same again, been disappointed with the lack of progression by Konami its like they don't care anymore.
