Here's a few points I made about the game on the NGamer Forums back when it released (6/12/11):
- There's no difference in the way PES 2012 plays to PES 2011. No suprise there. That said, the presentation in 2012 is much better.
- Master League is now joined by Become A Legend and World Player modes. You've also got the Copa Libertadores, which I'm sure wasn't present in PES 2011 3D. More modes = good stuff. Crucially, player development is included as well, which was stupidly left out of PES 2011 3D.
- Online is solid enough. Stutters ocassionally, but generally played at the same speed as it would in single player. Single games only, and only measured in wins/draws/losses, but you can play anyone with a similar playing record. Decisions are limited to sixty seconds across the board, meaning you don't have to wait ages for your opponent to make substitutions, change their tactics etc.
-It seems that no new commentary has been recorded. I heard nothing in any of my matches that I hasn't already heard a million times in the 2011 version. Bad news.
All in all, I'd say this is the game PES 2011 3D should have been...though fundamentally it isn't all the different from the versions that were appearing on the PSP over five years ago. If it ain't broke...
