Anyone who has been following the PES/FIFA wars over the past years will be able to tell you that PES has always had the better gameplay while FIFA has always looked better and has had the money and licences.
Well this year PES is making some inroads into the licencing by having the best football club in the world (Liverpool) in their game but by the sound of it FIFA has made huge strides in the gameplay section and could be victorious this year.
Gameplayer.com.au has been given some hands on time with FIFA 2009 and have come to the conclusion that it is better than PES2008â€¦ which is a start and along with it’s money and licensing could make it the hardcore gamers choice this yearâ€¦ for the first time in a long time.
The part that really made me sit up and take notice was
â€œCollision detection has been pumped up impressively and is now dynamic, so rather than getting canned â€˜stacking it’ animations when two players collide they will dive heroically in every way imaginable depending on both the players body positions and momentum at the time and the point of collision. This may be in the form of a trip, or a contested header, or even two people shouldering into each other as they chase down a ball. Very impressive stuff.â€
