FIFA 12 Vs PES 2012: Which has better gameplay and graphics?

By Posted 4 Jun 2011, 04:54

We gave you a few hints after EA released the first gameplay trailer for FIFA 12 that the game was shaping up to be something special, and now you can make your own comparisons on it. Konami has just unveiled the first trailer for rival game PES 2012, meaning that fans now have a good idea which game to pick up later on this year.

PES fans will be pleased to hear that it’s not a teaser trailer showing minimal gameplay either, as we get a proper look at how the game runs, as well as see how the updated visuals from PES 2011 look on the new game.

After watching both trailers, we’re inclined to say that FIFA 12 still looks the more desirable out of the two games, but PES purists will probably disagree. The game looks just as solid as PES 2011, but FIFA 12 looks more polished in our opinion, both from a graphics and gameplay point of view.

Check out the new trailer for PES 2012 below, while we’ve also included the first FIFA 12 trailer below as well for those who missed it last time. After watching both, let us know your impressions on them. Which game looks better in your opinion, and which title will you be picking up after the Summer?

This is often a subject of intense debate, so we’re looking forward to hearing your answers. Do you agree with us that FIFA 12 looks better?

    fifa team focuses more on player impact, true injuries, blah blah blah, while the konami team focuses more on gamplay. fifa always looked better but pes feels like real soccer. But i have to say, from these 2 videos, Pes looks better this year.

    ok people, we all agree that PES 2012 “looks” like PES 2011, but FIFA 09 looks like FIFA 10, FIFA 11 and probably FIFA 12!!

      I just played FIFA 2012 Demo. Thank God I tried the demo before buying it. It is a copy cat of Fifa 11 no difference. They differences that EA made this year is not worse it to spend money on it. For sure this year I am getting PES 12. By the way I tried Demo 1 and it is more fun to play than fifa 12 demo which made me feel that I am just playing fifa 11.

    Well,in my opinion,fifa 12 is THE EXACT SAME THING as fifa 11.Fifa will be forever an arcade video game.Konami had a very good idea by taking things from pes 06.Pes beats fifa by miles by Become a legend.In fifa 11,and I’m sure in fifa 12,you can go to your favourite club just like that.In pes you start from an unknown club and you can get to a big club. Fifa 12 isn’t better than pes,is worse.In fifa they don’t have champions league and europa league and several competitions.You blame pes because they don’t have license from leagues.PEOPLE, IT’S THE SAME THING.When I want to play liverpool,I pick Merseyside Red for example.You know why konami doesn’t have those licences:because they were spending more time for the gameplay.
    No one blames fifa that they don’t have champions league and europa league and ecc and efa .
    I say that last year score was 1-1.This year is 2-0 for Pro Evolution Soccer

    I have to agree with Addid Nissan.He’s 100% right.I don’t care about player impact engine,true injuries and blah blah blah.Ea sports didn’t make any improvements by be a pro and what it’s with that stupid and boring ”Be a Goalkeeper”.Become a Legend 100000000000-0 Be a Pro.
    Wouldn’t be awesome if ea sports or konami would make ”Be a REFEREE” in fifa or pes?
    It’s just a question.

  • Albastru98

     I’ve got pes 2011.You know at what point pes beats by far fifa? IN PES YOU CAN TAKE TEAMS FROM A LEAGUE TO OTHER.For example I can move Barcelona from the spanish league to pes league and in become a legend you can go to barcelona and play in pes league.Can fifa do that?

  • guest

    i always buy both games so heres why i like both and what both offer .

    PES
    -individuality
    -realistic flow of the game
    -A.I of teamates[fabulous]
    -great offline
    - unpredictable and fun
    -more national teams and CL liscense
    -harder to play
    -Graphics

    FIFA
    -great animations and tech
    -fluidity
    -visuals
    -many options to change gameplay
    -great online modes
    -online in general
    -a large number of teams and leagues

    PES is a purist choice so its much more for the hardcore of footie fans.
    where as FIFA is a pick up and play, which everyone can play.

    This is where the hardcore like me , want FIFA to be much much more difficault.

      pes 12 100% arcade

      fifa 12 100% sim

      nuff said.

    Look I was always a PES Fan… but recently FIFA has changed something in its gameplay that makes it better, hard to explain, but for instance, situations in which the balls comes difficult and the reception from the player just seems so realistic, or quick desicions for passing the ball, like using right or left foot, those are the cases that show you how much FIFA has improved.

    The problem with Pro Evoluton Soccer is, it completely changes “soccer” games but at some point it was not “evolving” anymore.

  • Thomsen

    The only thing that i dont like about pes i that the goalie no matter on how level you SUCKS!! In fifa at least the goalie is making some realistic movements to save the ball. And then all the license fifa got compared to pes, i like when i can play against all the other teams in the world.
    But i dont like fifa´s be a goalkeeper, whats up with that!! omfg what a boring thing to spend your time on :D And there be a pro mode is nearly unaceptable! damn it is bad! you cant barely do anything, you just have to play for that club you have chosen and that´s it. Not anything ekstra like in Nba 2k12, where you are being asked questions from the press.

    All in all i think i would prefer Fifa 12 :D

  • Rich

    i bought fifa12 yesterday and the player graphics is pretty poor…expecially the start screen when it says ‘press start’ ..rooney looks really really bad in that screen. and in games, player graphics are really poor as well. but i love the gameplay of this game and i think that it is really the best fifa out there

  • Lanckranck
