Seeing as PES 2009 is really a new update to an already very solid series of games, it's no surprise that it's one of the better representations of the sport on any video game system. The small enhancements to the game such as pressing the R1 button during the Legend mode will have the PS3 take control of your character and put them in the correct position. Additionally, the new camera angles make for a more enjoyable presentation for those who sit on the sidelines rather than play the title.

The game looks and sounds fantastic, with players resembling their real life counterparts, and the stadiums accurately rendered. During replays especially, even individual blades of grass are visible which combined with the authentic game commentary, really bring the title to life.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
