 Early games
In games such as PES5 and PES6, Benzema was best bought along with other French wonderkids Jeremy Menez, Samir Nasri and Hatem Ben Arfa. At this time, Benzema lacked a preset face and had a low current ability.
 PES 2008
As Benzema became a household name, his current stats were given a considerable boost. He developed into one of the best strikers in the game and next-gen versions of the game had a preset face for the French striker.
 PES 2009
He is notable because of his long-lasting high peak of 93 in the Master League. He can also score some spectacular goals from long range which is a useful attribute for those final minutes in the game where anything goes. At such a young age he is one who is definitely worth watching in the future and should definitely be purchased in the Master League should the opportunity arise.
 PES 2010
Benzema appears in Real Madrid with the new Galacticos like Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka and Xabi Alonso. He is one of the best strikers in the game until the February Update: his stats were considerably lowered in this update since he didn't play well for Real.
 PES 2012
He is still seen as the main striker for Real Madrid, usually pairing with Gonzalo Higuain, with Cristiano Ronaldo featuring further out wide. In Master League he is still a young player at 23 and therefore has potential to improve his stats. His main ability is his very good technical stats, such as Ball Control, Dribble Accuracy and Shot Accuracy which are all around the mid-80's.
