I just saw the achievements for the upcoming Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 game have been posted on xbox360achievements.org. I will get it for the PS3 (pending positive reviews) but I thought it would be a good time to reflect on Konami‘s quality of achievements/trophies. So to begin…
Possession Play (25G) – Awarded for having a Possession Rate of 60% or higher in your last 10 Matches
I average at about 55% in PEs 2010. This will be difficult as I am more of the counter-attacking player rather than the keep ball maestro.
Dead-ball Expert (40G) – Score 5 direct free-kicks.
I just plain suck at free kicks, I must’ve scored…none in PES 2010. Did score a few in PES 2009 though.
The Invincibles (90G) – Awarded for an undefeated season in Master League winning League, Cup and UEFA Champions League.
This is quite easy to accomplish in the earlier PES games but PES 2010 has evaded me so from achieving this feat. Guess it’s got the highest gamer points for a reason.
No.1 Club (50G) – Awarded for topping the Team Ranking in Master League.
Not exactly difficult to get but I hope it’s not the same system used in PES 2010. For some reason, you can’t go higher than a certain position with some of the weaker teams.
10 years of Service (50G) – Play 10 seasons in Master League.
I’ll be lucky enough to last 2 seasons if PES 2011 fails to deliver.
All the Become A Legend achievements.
I didn’t touch this mode in PES 2010, just not interested. Trophies may change that!
Mr.Consistency (Online) (50G) – Awarded for winning 75% of your Last 20 Ranked matches Online.
I hope I play don’t play against people using Barcelona, Real Madrid or any of the other overpowered teams for those last 20 ranked matches. It won’t be possible, I know, so “if you can’t beat them, join them”.
Kings of Latin America (80G) – A title awarded for winning the Copa Santander Libertadores.
This one is just strange, why is this second highest? It’s just a cup after all…
Although I’m not a desperate, trophy-hungry gamer, I did want some really inventive achievements in the same vein as Team Fortress 2. Something like:
Gone with the Wind – Loft a ball from outside of the box over the goalkeeper.
Miracle in Istanbul – come back from 3 goals down to win a European game.
From Rags to Riches – win promotion to division one with the default Master League team (Castello, Vorlander etc).
Unshakable Loyalty – in the same way Maldini did, have someone start from 17 years of age and retire while playing for your team.
There’s plenty of others I saw on fan forums but I guess Konami like to be lazy and put in uninspired stuff. EA are miles ahead in this area, just take a look at FIFA 10’s Xbox360 achievements.
I just hope PES 2011 doesn’t succumb to another season of misery and play second fiddle to FIFA 11.
