Thats my opinion though, ive always liked fifa more, except one year when pes 5 blew my socks off. That said, there is one thing I hate about fifa with a passion and thats the passing. This isnt new, its been an issue ever since the new ball physics came in with fifa 11 (I believe). Before, a standard pass and through pass were completely different things, and they worked splendidly. Now, they are a f**king mess. Press A/X for a standard pass and 50% of the time thats what you get, the other 50% you get a half cooked through pass. Press Y/Triangle and you get what I can only describe as a total f**k up. Pressing Y now just gives the ball to the opposition. It doesnt knock the ball forward into space for your player to run onto it, it either knocks it short or just delivers a simple pass. And this f**ks me off no end. Now Im pretty good on fifa, this isnt just me not knowing how to power a pass, the system is fundamentally broken and delivers hours of frustration for me.

There's no league mode which is just ridiculous in a football game. Secondly heading and crossing is still hit and miss, players are far to often caught underneath the ball which just ends up with balls honing over the bar time after time.
I eventually sold it and I'm on FIFA13 now which just has more game modes for single player and online minded gamers that its unreal. It's still got its flaws in parts for me but its definitley the less frustrating and more enjoyable game this year.
Ill happily jump ship next year of konami don't drop the ball again with regards to game modes. They also need to get the 360 degree controls in and sort out the free player movement so that players can sctually tussle for the ball.

It artificially makes the game harder in a very cheap way, because you can never know what kind of pass you will get when you press the button. Sometimes you get lucky and its perfect, but mostly you get something you dont want entirely, or the right pass but in the wrong direction. Really needs addressing for the next generation of fifas, its the only thing about the game I really dont like.

Having said that I still think it's better than PES. I only played the demo but I do think people got carried away with it just simply because it actually was a good game for once. I liked it too but it still has at least another year to go to get itself sorted IMO. I was a PES player since I had it on the N64 up till FIFA 09, but people look back on those games with rose tinted specs. Yes they where great, but for me FIFA since 09 has been better than any past PES to be honest.
Another thing that keeps on FIFA is the sheer number of modes. You get so much for your money. That and the career mode is actually really good now, which was the one thing PES had to get me back. The Master League was awesome, but I couldn't go back to that 2 league system now that FIFA has finally managed to create a proper world of football with the career.
