PES 2012 is an iOS version of the popular soccer game, also known as Pro Evolution Soccer. This is a 'freemium' version of the game, where it's free to download but features are limited.
Based around all the gameplay elements that made Pro Evo 2011 for iOS so much fun, PES 2012 brings more fast, fluid soccer action to the mobile platform. The graphics and animation are realistic, as are the sound effects and background jeering and cheering. With three different control systems, you should be able to find a comfortable way for you to play PES 2012.
There are plenty of game modes in the full version of PES 2012 to keep you occupied for hours. You can play a quick match, exhibition, UEFA Champions League/Europa League season, and domestic league/cup.
New for PES 2012 on iOS is the Super Challenge, which is the equivalent of Master League in the full Pro Evo game. Here you get to lead a team to victory in season mode, making transfers, picking the team and playing out league and cup matches.
One nice addition to PES 2012 is that you can use the team you build in Super Challenge to take on your buddies online in a Friend Challenge. This version of PES includes more community features, including Facebook integration where you can share your performances and lay down challenges to opponents.
Another fun section is the Free Kick Challenge, where you shoot a series of free kicks, trying to get them as close to the target as possible within a given time. This is a great mini game within PES 2012 that's perfect to pick up and play on the bus stop. It's more technical than Flick Football, and arguably more fun, too.
PES 2012 is free to download and install, although features are very limited. You can only play one half of a game between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid in Quick Mode (as Madrid), tackle Super Challenge as Athletic Bilbao, play the Free Kick Challenge, or take part in training.
PES 2012 may not have the officially licensed players that FIFA 12 does, but we'd argue that it's more fun to play than EA's title.
