What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 is a sophisticated soccer simulation game with teams from all around the world represented. Players choose their home country and compete to the end goal of being crowned the international champion. Fitting in with the context of the sport, players can be hit, fall down, or be injured, but this is all designed to make the experience as realistic as possible. Violence is never encouraged and any time a player is injured, it has a negative consequence on the game.

What’s It About?
In PRO EVOLUTION SOCCER 2012, players select one of numerous international teams and then compete around the globe to secure the spot of #1 team in the world. Players can compete in single, quick-play matches, engage in tournament games, play through leagues, or hone their skills in a number of practice modes. Players can either compete solo against computer-controlled opponents or play with a friend. This game is designed to be the most realistic and sophisticated simulation of soccer available anywhere.
Is It Any Good?
The most striking thing about Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 is its amazing visual presentation. No detail is left untouched from the cloth of the player uniforms to the thousands of spectators that appear in the stands. The gameplay experience is likewise extremely intricate, and although players will likely take for granted aspects like "intelligent" teammates that adapt to the style of each player, or detailed controls that dynamically change based on the position of the ball, it all melds together for a seamless and intensely realistic experience. Casual players may feel intimidated with the bevy of menus, statistics, and settings that appear before the game starts, but true soccer enthusiasts will find many reasons to thoroughly enjoy this game.
