Too Pro for Pro Evolution Soccer?

Recently I have read about some gamers find that PES is too easy to beat, even at the highest difficulty level! I believe this ‘problem’ exists in all games after a while, not just in PES.

Be the Underdog

If that is case, why don’t you try your hand on underdogs? Pick teams fighting relegation from the start.

Rather than using Ronaldo to dribble past players, Gerrard to take long shots, and Henry to beat goalkeepers, why not try conjuring these magic with teams at the lower end of the table?

That would be more satisfying isn’t it?

Signing Unknowns

In addition, buy new players in the PES master league! Buy unknowns, not those who you know would become superstars in a few years time!

Search the market, buy players you think your club could afford in real life. That would ensure a more realistic game, instead of dominating your opponents week in week out.

Adjust Ratings of Players

For those who find that PES is no longer challenging regardless of any team they use, you could go to edit mode, and improve the stats of all the goalkeepers. That would decrease the number of goals you are able to score, meaning you would need to create more chances, thus leveling the playing field : )

Challenge the Pros

If the game is still too easy for you, join a local PES competition and pit yourself against the best!

    Hi neo
    thanks for your beating answer to those who think pes 2009 is so easy.
    They just don’t consider it’s a computer game that you have to do all the things in 10 minutes which real players do in 90 minutes.(Scoring, Dribbling, hatricking defending, saving, heading corner-kicking, free-kicking and all the stuff).
    And there Should be a difference between top players like Henry and other unknown players in that 10 minutes. Henry last night did a hatrick in Real Madrid. Now how can a game be that hard and not easy to beat when it has to be as much realistic as possible??
    I think you’ve said all the things it was enough to be the answer to those guys. Thanks anyway.
    thats for me for now.
