We know how much our readers love the beautiful game and in continuation of our efforts of bringing the best apps and games to our readers, we are offering this game as a free download, exclusive for followers of our blog. PES 2009 is a java application and at 370 kb is rather a pretty compact package and installation is a cakewalk.
PES supports full screen gaming and the audio effects are pleasant and go well with gameplay. As can be seen in the screenshot above, a small icon is displayed at the center (showing a soccer ball in this case), which is the control for this game. When the gamer is in possession of the ball, the icon displays a ball, tapping on which leads to pass or kick depending on the direction and when the ball is with the opponents, the icon is that of tackling. There are plenty of other control options for other moves (sprint, shoot, curving shot, dipping shot etc), which can be seen in Help-> Controls. With loads of customisation options, gameplay is fun as well as addicting.
- Full screen gaming with no virtual D-pad hogging screen real estate
- Pleasant audio effects
- A plethora of customisation options
- Not optimized for finger touch gameplay
PES 2009 brings most of the features of the popular game to our Nokia X6 and in a very compact package. Gameplay is a delight and addictive if you are into soccer. With its minute icons, its not fully optimized for finger touch gameplay but you won’t be complaining much when armed with a stylus. The gamut of customisation options included in this small package is mind-blowing and every gamer (amateur to expert) will enjoy this game. If you are a soccer fan, you dont want to be missing this game on your Nokia X6 and for the rest, PES 2009 is a great game to start acclimatising with the beautiful game. In all, its the best java based game I have reviewed so far.
