    Woo, PES2009 is finally out for Wii!

    I got it earlier, and I've been playing it... I'm really happy to see the return of the Master League. Also, it's great to see that Konami have added so many things. Edit mode is back to its full capacity and player attributes are detailed again, online play is even more powerful with different modes and the ability to add opponents as 'Rivals' in addition to the friends list.

    Another really remarkable point is that there is actually an in-game download service to update rosters and players via the internet... it may be standard on other consoles, but for the Wii, this is excellent.

    Add to that the continued development of the innovative motion controls plus added support for classic controls and four player support, and PES 2009 for Wii, is in my opinion the best soccer game to come out in a long while.

    Champions League licensing just adds to the flair of the whole experience, and I'm really enjoying it so far. PES 2008 was just a taste, a test run, of what Konami has in store for PES on Wii... PES 2009 is a true evolution. :D

    Just my thoughts. Anyone else have this game or plan on getting it?

    EDIT: I'll just shamelessly plug my PES2009 Friend code thread here too: PES2009 FCs here

    I got my copy yesterday from Amazon, and only had time to do the tutorials on the 'new' controls, and play an exhibition match (which ended in penalty kicks after extended time).

    The first thing that struck me was how much better my team's defensive A.I. was! That was really my only complaint with last year's version, and I think they've pretty much nailed it here. Plus, they've added more control over individual defensive players.

    I didn't realize this allowed for updated rosters via Wi-Fi; I'll have to check that out!

    Yeah, defense really was a shambles last time, but this time it is indeed a lot better. I also like the new shooting controls when using the Wii remote and nunchuk. That said, I'm mostly an old-school type person when it comes to PES and I stick to the Classic Controller. :p

    Went online last night (servers seem to be a bit slow atm) and played a guy from the Ivory Coast. Pretty dang awesome, and added him as a 'Rival' later.

    goheat, go post your friend code in the FC thread! add me and tell me or something! :)

    Wow, I'm happy its finally out! I don't have it yet but am totally planning to get it. I liked PES 2008 a lot, and love FIFA 2009 aswell, so I really have a lot of expectations for this one and now that I read of you that already have it, I am more motivated to get it :)

    If you do pick it up, lemme know, I can give you pointers and such. Plus, the in-game tutorial system is very comprehensive and teaches you everything from the basics to really advanced techniques, step by step.

    I got PES 2009 yesterday. It plays exactly like PES 2008, but with some new moves. The flaws from PES 2008 appear still to be there - i.e., a player will stand and not move to the ball, despite the ball being in spitting distance.

    It seems to be that its far easier to score by headers via corner kicks than PES 2008, I hope I'm wrong. Any one else noticed this?

    I'm disappointed that the difficultly level hasn't been increased ( I'm playing on Professional level ) . The CPU still can't score in a brothel - missing sitters when they should be goals.

    The new play modes, Master League and Champions League are great and certainly extend the game...

    AutumnWind -> just go through the tutorial and learn at least the basic moves. The controls are very easy once you get the hang of it and come naturally in-game.

    The Wii type controls make PES a totally unique footy game: I now find it very hard to play football games on other platforms with traditional controls: they are just too constraining. The straight jacket has been removed with the Wii style controls.

    Eh, stewart01, why you telling me to go through the tutorial to learn the controls? :p I have... What I meant was that I still play mostly with traditional controls, probably because I'm lazy and because I've played Winning Eleven like that for years. I can't make nearly as many cool plays, but I do sometimes use the motion controls too and yeah, it's great. Anyway, occasionally I also have the problem of a player standing still while the ball is right next to him, but I've had that problem in almost every football game I've ever played...

    That all said, I still suggest you guys go post your friend codes so we can all play online sometime. ;D

    That review sucked. The reviewer didn't play last years PES, since he didn't think there was that much extra content.

    The review didn't give the game justice.

    I agree. I definitely expected the score to at least be 9+, as this game is one of the best on Wii... that said, an IGN review is still an IGN review, and it did still get Editor's Choice, which is somewhat a big deal since this game seems to be getting almost zero publicity so far this year.

    The IGN review was horrible, very low on actual details and it seemed like the game was just too tough for them. Hopefully they'll be an IGN UK review up soon which should be better.

    I'm looking forward to other reviews too, the only reason I posted the first IGN review up is because IGN's big, and the score itself isn't too bad (though it should be much higher)... anything to sorta spread the word for this game some, because I think it's really under-promoted for such a high quality game on the Wii.

    I was wondering if someone could help me.

    I've gotten a little tired of the Remote/Nunchuk way of playing and feel like a bit of traditional Pro Evo-ing, which is fine, but is there any way of changing to the Classic Controller on my Master League game, which is currently set to the Nunchuk method or am I stuck with that for Master League.

    Might sound silly, but I really can't find anywhere to change controls.
