Konami’s PES 2012 for Windows Phone 7 has just been released as the XBOX Live game of the week . Now those of you who have been following Microsoft’ mobile OS for a little while may remember that PES 2011 was also available on the platform (hands-on video) but then suddenly disappeared not long ago. If you bought last year’s iteration of the game it’s now safe to say that you have been ripped off given that you cant download it anymore and that you will have to buy the 2012 edition instead if you really what to have a decent football/soccer game on your phone. To make things worst; this new edition is nearly identical to the previous one (besides the 2012 teams and menu background). As a matter fact just check ou the description below and compare to the previous one here:
-Unrivalled realism: Experience incredible gameplay and focus on tactics, goals and winning trophies while competing against the most advanced team and player AI on the market. Striking animations such as referee cut-scenes or goal celebrations and technical moves (diving header, bicycle kick, and more) will make you feel the beauty of the game.
- Exclusive UEFA Club Competitions: PES 2012 includes many of the best European club teams in the officially licensed UEFA Champions League™ and UEFA Europa League™ modes.
- Online connectivity: Prove your skills and unlock the various Xbox LIVE achievements, compare yourself to your friends, make it to the top of the leaderboards and become the world’s greatest PES player.
- Outstanding Accessibility for Beginners and Experts: The uniquely designed true flow™ control system provides instant access for players of all levels by utilising the accelerometer and AI-supported touch controls. More advanced players are presented with unlimited freedom of play by being able to master classic console-style controls with virtual pad and buttons.
- Stunning graphics: Detailed stadiums, pitches and weather effects provide the perfect visual environment for exciting matches
Avatar awards: These aren’t listed in the official description, but we have it on good authority that they’re coming in the near future.
