Lag-free matches are also included for network mode, so long as the connection is adequate. The game released on the PS2, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360, PSP and Windows.
It also features Lionel Messi and Fernando Torres on the cover and is the successor to PES 2009. This new edition is seen by the majority of the fans as an opportunity to regain the title for the best football simulator, lost to its rival FIFA two years ago.
The demo was released on the 17th of September while the game was released on the 23rd of October, therefore competing with the FIFA Series.
PES 2010 has the following features.
- PES 2010 contains improved visuals, animations and moves, including live player expressions and movements that will change according to conditions on the field. Animations of dribbling and shots on goal, as well as individual skills, have all been reworked.
- Gameplay has been made more realistic. This includes more versatile goalkeepers and greater control over penalties in terms of placing and accuracy.
- There will be an enhanced online experience: a new development team is solely dedicated to improving online play and other aspects, such as downloadable content and more updates.
- The A.I. has been improved thanks to Teamvision 2.0. Referees have been reworked to make more balanced calls during matches.
- PES 2010 introduces greater strategy control: various strategic elements, such as pass frequency and width of play, can be altered.
- The match-day atmosphere gives a better taste of home and away crowds, which will react spontaneously to all the action on the pitch.
- Master League has been enhanced. It has improved managerial aspects, resulting in an increased managerial career lifespan.
- 360-degree control is introduced, available on the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 versions of the game via the analog sticks on the respective controllers. PS3 owners will also benefit from this when using the DualShock’s D-Pad, but the Wii D-Pad is limited to eight-directional control and the Xbox 360 D-Pad to sixteen-directional control due to their hardwares.
