Found 15th Sep 2010
Seeing as both demos are out today on both xbox and ps3.

Just wondering what everyones impressions are of the demos, list what you liked and what you didn't like.

Please don't turn this into a pes vs fifa flame war.

I don't think even PES 'fanboys' bother to argue any more do they?

Fifa all the way these days.

pes lost the war 3 years ago.

No doubt the PES fans will still rage about how good it is. You normally find they still stick up for HD-DVD too

Has anyone actually played the demos?

Sweet!

The FIFA demo is fantastic, hard to get used to though, so much harder to break though midfield, can't just ping pong pass now, ball physics have improved dramatically as well, pes is a lot better this year as well, ball acts more reallistically as well, ganeplay is far more in depth but simplified at the same time, put of the two FIFA wins again for me, it just keeps getting better

The PES demo was better than expected as hadn't played PES in years but waiting to try the Fifa demo later before deciding which is better.

I've only played the PES demo so far...........whilst it's an improvement from the last couple of years i won't be buying as it's just so sloooooow. Even sprinting feels like running through treacle and i felt like i was always a couple of button presses ahead of the game. Did like the passing though.

Pro Evo failed to move on, disappointing. Most years you're paying for the leatest players.

Downloadin the fifa demo on ps3 and its taking forever

Yeah ps3 demos now up on psn store

At first I thought the FIFA demo was great, then the real awfulness shines through. The referee system is worse than ever, and the collisions between players are glitched beyond beleif. How **** hard is it to actually release a FINISHED game?! Looks like I'll be avoiding FIFA yet again this year. Thats 2 years now that they've left so many glitches in a game that its almost unplayable.

What collisions have glitches? And you do realise this is a demo build and not the final build

Hey People,

Want to check this demo out!

However, haven't played it in a while and have the older firmware....so now it won't let me access the PS store unless I download the right firmware, any idea how I can get past this?

Cheers!

You can't unless you upgrade the fw.

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! Well guess I have to wait until release or to be honest a lot of people are advising against upgrading the fw due to future mods to the console so am reluctant to upgrade it.

Fifa is top again just great! have to admit tho was quite impressed with PES it has finally stepped up a gear, Still FIFA rules tho.

there is no contest, im not a fifa fanboy, but i do like football games, and in truth, i will play the best one at the time, fact that fifa is better every year is the reason i choose to play that, even though the glitches can be rather annoying.

You do realise the game is already finished and will be releases in 2 weeks. All of the glitches in the demo will be present in the final game. Don't pay any attention to the disclaimer crap at the start of the demo.

I also have to say though, played the pro Eco demo, and it's pretty much just pro 5 with updated graphics. Which in a sense is a big step forward, from the giant leap they took back.

So I assume you guys have all upgraded to the latest firmware?

A demo will take a month to pass xbox/ps3 quality control so this build is at least from the start of august at the earliest, therefore any glitches can be ironed out as they have more than enough time.

Whats the demo like?

Im thinking of switching back to pes this year

Im not the correct person to ask as ill play pes even if it sucks. But it seems different this year less arcadey.

You never know, they might be doing the opposite for a change. Last year the FIFA 10 demo was brilliant, but the final game turned out to be a glitch ridden PoS. I really hope that is the case as the gameplay is fantastic, would be a shame to mess things up over poor collision detection.

I preferred the arcady gameplay tbh

I heard that the new pes is like pes5 on the ps2.

Can anyone confirm?

Because if it is i think im going back to pes at pes 5 is the best footy game ever!!!

interesting, will have to grab these and give them a whirl. Probs will go with fifa, might have to wait for a stupid price to come around though as I'll probs be busy with F1 2010 woop

Having tried Fifa 11 I find it too much like Fifa 10 so I'm not going to waste my money buying it.

Might be tempted to get PES but I'll wait until I've tried the full version

Lol... its nothing like FIFA 10.

just tried the pes demo passing is a hell of a lot better shooting and free kicks seem to be the same you either know how to take them or you dont( im not being silly i hadnt got a clue until i watched the guilty gamer guides last year) seemed to be little or no offsides which is great compared to 2010 there are still tackling issues and stupid fouls but i think it will at least be a lot less frustrating than previous years ,

the game speed option is a great addition ive been waiting a while for it to come back pes is supposed to be a sim and the speed recently has been crazy now it seems possible to play a passing game with a slow build up instead of the speed fest pes had become and its optional so can be changed to suit your style

as for the demo i felt frustrated at being forced to watch the video after playing a game the only other option was to quit i just turned my ps3 off as it wasnt worth watching twice

im not a pes fanboy either just like most in search of the best footie sim i converted to fifa in 09 then bought 10 didnt see much improvement and found it too easy to score after a few games i was passing to roooney beating the defence and chipping the keeper with a 70% success rate or so wasnt enough of a challenge it used to be you wanted footie teams and kits you bought fifa you wanted football you bought pes , looks like pes may be on its way back,
but the good thing is theres a week between fifa coming out and pes so you can buy fifa try it and stick with it or trade when pes comes out i think this will be my plan of action

Here's a tip for the demo.

At the start of the demo choose "Beginner", now before you kick off change to your preferred difficulty setting, and you will get 3 minute halves instead of 2.

I haven't yet tested myself, but I'm sure it will work!

fifas new penalties are awful

i no there harder than free kicks penalties are asposed to be easier for the player and not the keeper not the other way around

Lol i played that and couldn't believe it.
And what made it even funnier was that the computer team also missed all of their penalties.

I think we took about 13 penalties each, about 23 of those 26 penalties all went flying into space.

To be honest, the best football game in my opinion is FIFA 07. That was great fun. Especially super shots from like 60 yards out.
