PES 2012 continues Konami's determination to work with fans of both the PES series and football in general, to create a truly realistic, immersive and utterly playable take on the modern game. Attacking play is a cornerstone of PES 2012, and the game benefits from a more open approach that allows users to dictate the pace of movement, with AI elements incorporated so team mates make runs and offer support in one-on-one situations.
Zonal marking and positional defending are also massively enhanced; ensuring players are forced to work harder to split the opposition defense. Meanwhile a cursor switching system has been implemented using the right analog stick to switch to any player on the field. The result is a game that, more than ever, represents the key attributes of the world's great players and truly captures.
