You’d need to be slightly less intelligent than the film that forms on an open bowl of custard to not expect this. PES 2012 has been officially announced by Konami and, predictably, promises a raft of improvements.
Most of these enhancements to the reworked game engine seem to come in the movement of AI team mates and how the defence acts together to mark players. It all looks very impressive but then, don’t they always?
The only surefire way to know if the projected improvements are actually any good will be to read the reviews and play the demo and game for yourself. PES impressed us last year, moving closer to the the heights it once reached as the discerning fan’s more realistic football game. Hopefully this year will see even more improvement. I for one can’t wait to see more football from Konami.
