FIFA 12 lead producer David Rutter has praised Pro Evolution Soccer by saying that "PES 2012 is a solid game."
In an interview to EGM David said, "I think it's [PES] a solid game, it has its positives and negatives, but I don't think any of their positives outweigh ours."
He further added, "I think the one area where they've always done a good job is their user interface; I've always liked their UI. It's something that's something of a legacy for us, and we're doing as much as we can this year to address that as well. So I've got a lot of respect for the team; I know how hard it is to make a football [soccer] video game..."
David Rutter concluded in his own style as he said, "...but I think, ultimately, we make a much better one [game]."
