When I was a kid I played baseball, football, basketball, wrestled, learned some martial arts, ran, rode my bike, climbed trees, and more. One thing I did not do was soccer. I know this sport is popular around the world. I have to be honest and blunt - I don’t like it. I won’t watch it on TV, DVD, Blu-ray, an airplane flight, movie theater, whatever. This is very important to understand as you read my review of PES 2011 3D.
PES 2011 3D is extremely impressive visually. You hear all the time how great the 3D looks on the Nintendo 3DS. PES 2011 3D is another one of those games that looks fantastic. And not just the 3D. The character models, fields, and fans look way better on this hand held than I was expecting. I have played Wii games that do not look this good.
The referees do a wonderful job of stopping the player from being too aggressive in PES 2011 3D. Do not expect to slide tackle the ball away from the defender all the time. They will give you a few chances and then start to penalize.
The announcers in PES 2011 3D impressed me at first. Their sound byte commentary fit the action of the game. They told me what I needed to do, and when I was losing the fans. Nothing like putting a little pressure on the player. After playing numerous games I started to tire of their commentary. The music in PES 2011 3D ranges. It is not as good as the home console versions, but still there.
If you enjoy soccer then you can receive months of enjoyment out of PES 2011 3D. There are enough teams to keep a player busy. PES 2011 3D includes a local play for up to two players. Only one card is needed for that. PES 2011 3D also includes a Streetpass versus play. I feel that PES 2011 3D is worth the price of admissions.
PES 2011 3D is extremely realistic. Players will intercept the ball, protect the goal, and make it generally difficult to score. Players in PES 2011 3D can do things with a soccer ball I never thought was possible. They are professionals after all. PES 2011 3D is not an easy game. You will need skills to win in this hand held soccer title. And maybe just a wee bit of luck.
PES 2011 3D teaches players good sportsmanship. I am pleased that I spent my own hard earned money on this game. I feel it was well spent and can help millions find a good game on the Nintendo 3DS. I wish Konami would drop evolution from the name though. Since it is highly controversial.
