I've seen several CPU vs Human PES videos and the CPU AI outclasses FIFA BY FAR. The CPU will carry the ball, stop, pass back, cross, move back, pass back to the GK, slowly move up the pitch again... and all in its own end. Everything that default FIFA has NEVER had. PES pace isn't slow though, I disagree with you there. It's FIFA fast, and the thing with FIFA is you can slow things down some via sliders. That's where FIFA has an advantage over PES. Good year for football gamers, looks like two different but great games this year.
