Pro Evolution Soccer for Galaxy Tab (Free)
Everyone wants a football game on their Tablet, and although PES 2011 has a few features missing, it still manages to thrill the player with its unique graphics and simple controls. The missing features are that there is no multi-player (duh!), and no commentary to bring more realism. However, the graphics make up for that and the game is very realistic, though its just under 100mb, which is quite low considering Fifa 11 for iPhone is 900mb. Another thing to note is that the game doesn’t quite fit the whole screen of the tablet, leaving tiny spaces at the edges.
PES 11 has different game modes including Quick Match, Exhibition, two Cup Competitions and a Training mode. Quick Match automatically chooses your team and your opponent, and the game starts. Exhibition lets you choose your own team and your opponent, along with the time for the game which is either 3 mins, 5 mins or 10 mins. Competition Mode brings up a series of matches leading to the final world cup to which you have to lead you team. As you win awards and cups, they are stored in your Gallery, where saved replays also store up.
There are three types of controls, the first one which uses motion sensor to move your player, another with joystick to move around and tap/hold screen for passing/shooting, and one which has a joystick and the buttons ‘A’ and ‘B’. I prefer the latter as its the easiest; A for shoot, B for pass (hold to charge power), Through by swiping B and Cross by swiping A in any direction. In defense mode, B pressurizes the opponent while A tackles (most of them bring up the referee, with a red card in his hand!).
If you score a goal or do a foul, a replay is shown in which you can pinch-zoom, move the camera around by your finger, and save it to the Gallery. You can also pause, or fast forward the replay. If the match draws, instead of an option for penalty shoot-out, there is just extra time given. Penalties can only be taken if your opponent does a foul in his ‘D’. In a penalty, swiping the ball in a direction shoots the ball while the speed of the swipe means the power of the shot. Similarly, if you are the goal keeper, then swiping in the direction makes you jump that way.
