    Good grief. Going from an evening of co-op Fifa '09 to the PES demo was literally like taking a step back in time. Such a shame.

    The running animation just looks laughably bad this year for some reason - like everybody is skating across the pitch but with the grace of a broken record. Why do they have to push the ball out so uniformly as if it's on a string? Why does the ball seemingly get stuck in mud approximately every 4 yards away from each step when you dribble? Why is there virtually no upper body movement except during the same tired jostling animations?

    I feel genuinely sad to see it stay relatively static now. ISS, ISS Pro Evo, Iss Pro Evo 2, Pro Evo 4 and Pro Evo 6 have been played to death amongst my group of mates, and I want to like it.

    The 4-player online option with the points scoring system looked interesting though. If they can nail the technical aspects finally I can see that being somewhat of a draw.

    Come on Konami, get it together.
