1st and 2nd version of PES 2012 Demo is out and here you can write your opinions, reviews, impressions.
I just played PES 2012 Demo 1st version and my impression is good, but I am little disappointed.
Animations are still not good/realistic, that's first what you will notice. As about general gameplay I think it's ok.

"Next demo installment for PES 2012 will be available on the 14th September for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. In the second demo you will be able to play as the following teams: Tottenham Hotspurs, Bayern Munich, Inter Milan, Club America, Internacional.
Improved Goal Keepers
According to your feedback on the first Demo, we improved the Goal Keepers
Improved Defensive AI
Defensive AI has been tweaked to work more efficiently on the field
Improved difficulty to score a goal
You definitely have to build up, plan and organize your attack well in order to score in this demo"
After more playing the Demo I can say that biggest problem for me are animations.
Running, shooting etc. is rather funny than realistic. And this is killing the game!
I didn't play PES 2011, only a little, cause it was disaster, so I cant compare what is much improved, but by the trailers about "off the ball players movements" this is very visible and it's only bright spot in this game.
Good job from KONAMI, but FIFA is now much, much ahead of PES.
Yes I like it too. Finally player's running is as realistic as I want it to be. PES 2008-2011 sucked because of this. PES 6 and earlier were fine. However, some passes seem to be a little bit too slow, but it's not a big issue.
Do you know where I could change the value of pass assistance in demo, or is that new feature only in full version or console versions?
Pass Support: Accessed through the new personal player settings, Pass Support allows users to determine the level of AI assistance when passing the ball. Players can opt for one of five settings from full support, right up to full veteran setting which switches off all assistance so that the direction, weight and speed of every pass is at their disposal.
A read that Spanish Primera Division will be fully licensed along with all Champions League clubs. As for other things there is nothing official yet.
Also there will be another Demo released before final version. I think they need to improve a lot of things. There is no time for fixing animations, but Active AI might be a little more active. For me this is only good thing in PES, even though AI is not active as they were presenting it in trailers for months.
