Is Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 the best soccer game now?

I recently bought FIFA World Cup 2010. It's a nice game, but I can't help but feel there might be something better available.

Is Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 better?

I just finished reading a bunch of reviews. The consensus, from what I've gathered, is that FIFA World Cup 2010 is better than Real Soccer 2010, X2 Soccer 2010 is better than FIFA World Cup 2010, and Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 is the best overall.

X2 Football 2010 is best, IMO.

TSharp i just want to ask you one question.. have you ever played PES on any other consoles? here's my opinion, if you want official games and better gameplay with beautiful animations then go for PES. If you're going for a more complete game then x2 2010 would be the one you want. But for me, i vote for PES 2010 for being number one.. Because remember, this is PES's first appearance on the iphone, and it is unbelievable, almost similiar to the PSP graphics, but like i said you be the judge. PES, is still to me not yet perfect, despite that it is still number one for me:-)
Here's a bunch of videos for you to compare:
(i) Iphone PES 2010 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvkU6RwWkGA
(ii) PSP PES 2010 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5MqXakN74o
(iii) X2 2010 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1mKhk-qnSoc

The reason why i put PSP PES gameplay is for you to see the similarities between the PSP and IPhone version. the graphics are almost identical. one thing lacking is the become a legend and master league. which im sure in the future it will be included.

I just bought it. It's fun, but I've been having a hard time making goals. Aiming is a little less automatic than FIFA World Cup.

Yes.

My consensus is only based on the reviews I've read.

Thank you for the info and video links. I'll check them out.

What difficulty are you playing?

I'm finding scoring pretty easy on Normal, will probably bump it up soon. I've had some NICE goals so far (corner headers, overhead kicks, flick-and-kicks), saved replays and will put them on Youtube tomorrow probably

I probably just need a little practice to get used to the controls.

Most people who say X2 2010 is the best don't even have PES 2010. They're just judging it from screenshots, videos or 'what they heard'.

Four most influential games: Papi Jump, iDracula, Fieldrunners, Flight Control.
