Pro Evolution Soccer 2013

This fall Pro Evolution Soccer strides back onto the pitch to showcase dazzling new skills. Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 returns to the roots of football with unique levels of control plus major emphasis on the individual style of the world’s best players. Thanks to feedback from dedicated fans, PES2013 offers total freedom to play any kind of ball, which for the first time includes full control over shooting and the first touch. Endorsed by Cristiano Ronaldo, PES will continue to push boundaries, perfectly reflecting the genius of top level players and capturing the essence of modern teamwork. The result will be the most faithful recreation of modern day soccer to date.

With the game tied at zero, minimal time remaining on the clock and the crowd going crazy, you know what your team needs to make a stop here. As the visiting squad, you’re in hostile territory and you know the only thing better than leaving this stadium — is leaving with a victory. Thinking he’s caught the defense napping, the opposing forward makes a pass into a tight fit only to have it go your way. The defender stops the pass and immediately outlets it to you. You sprint up the sidelines, dribbling left and right, avoiding defenders. Your winger sprints on the opposite side of the field — it’s two on one. The goalie comes out to meet you just as the ball leaves your foot and soars through the air toward your teammate. He jumps up and his head connects squarely with the ball — as the energetic crowd goes silent.

Another excellent PES game I’ve had this game for about a week now, and after putting in many hours of play I thought I’d put a quick “first impressions” review up, and then update it later on. Just a bit of background: my last version of PES was 2009 for Wii and I’ve played it almost continuously for the several years I’ve had it. The control that Wii interface gives you is pretty amazing and addictive and it’s easily the best sports game I’ve ever played.Other than different menus, the first thing I’ve noticed is that the physics of player movement and momentum have been updated to be more realistic – I haven’t played any more recent versions, so this may be the same from last year. It’s subtle, but it’s unmistakeable and a big improvement, IMO. You can now run after a ball heading toward the sideline and stop & control it, rather than just running out of bounds as in PES 2009. Not always, but these world-class athletes now act more like world-class athletes. Another big change is that when holding Z to pressure the player with the ball, your defender will now sometimes knock the other guy over. Mostly this just results in a free kick, though I’ve gotten a couple of yellow cards and one very frustrating penalty kick in the 89th minute to lose a game. I guess the lesson is that you can’t just hold Z forever – at some point the pressure is too much and your defender steamrolls the player he’s pressuring.I primarily play Master League and that’s the only part of PES 2013 I’ve touched, other than to edit the EPL teams to their proper names. Champions League is now integrated into Master League (finally!) and you can rename the FA Cup to the FA Cup (which you could in 2009, but for whatever reason it didn’t make the change within Master League).Now, here’s my big disappointment: there is no more second division. You start in the Premier League, and there is no relegation. WHY, Konami, WHY? Ideally I would’ve loved them to put in MORE lower divisions, not remove them altogether. Why not give us 50-60 teams from each country, then we can edit them as we like and set up whatever level of promotion/relegation we want? It seems that this wouldn’t be that difficult since it was already there to one level in past versions.So, what this means is that when I start with a team of unknowns (which is how I like to do it) you now have a 1.5 star team playing against EPL squads! In the past my low-quality team would’ve been in the lower division playing against better-but-still-middling competition. Makes it pretty tough to get any progress going. I cut as much of the dead wood from my team (it seems you start with a bunch of guys with really poor stamina so many of them are useless) at the January transfer window, traded an aging striker (with poor stamina) for a much better goalkeeper, and was able to get a couple of good midfielders, but no improved strikers. With limited funds to work with, this has put me in only a slightly improved position for the remainder of the season. But that’s ok. Progress is being made and it shouldn’t be too easy. But I had bids for 6-8 different strikers rejected. Oh, and there are far fewer “bargains” to be found. No more young strikers waiting to blossom for only 250 points, etc. Overall the players seem more expensive – which makes sense, I guess, if we’re only dealing with top division teams. So far with my slightly upgraded team – but with still far too many poor quality players – goals are hard to come by, so I’ve got a lot of 1-0, 0-1, 0-0 & 1-1 results.One new feature (to me, anyway, it may have been there in the past) is that you can now take free kicks from a “behind the kicker” perspecive and choose the arc/curve of the ball – based on the kicker’s abilities, of course. Kind of cool, and it’s nice to have a bit more control on free kicks.So, overall, I think this is a big improvement. I don’t know if it’s a big change from 2012, but that’s part of why I don’t buy the update every year for sports games – usually the small changes don’t justify the price. But this is only $20, so kudos to Konami for that. I’m very happy with PES 2013 so far. The gameplay mechanics are unchanged, for the most part, but the feel of the gameplay has improved for the better. I can’t wait to get some better players up front to see how that helps.A couple more quick notes: the in-game graphics are pretty much the same, maybe slightly better, but there’s only so much the Wii can do. (I’m looking forward to a Wii U version) The cut-scene graphics are improved, mostly in the fact that the player models are more varied, and they’ve done a better job of making famous players more recognizable, though many players now look vaguely cro-magnon.Lastly – I think the AI is much improved. AI is one of those effemeral things that game companies like to tout and give fancy names to, but I think Konami have actually…

Great Game!!!!!!!!!!! This is from my son who is 10 yrs old and loves to play, watch and play video-games with soccer..This game is very good. The graphics are great, and there are many more features in this game than FIFA for WII, like in PES, you can go straight to penalty shoot-outs,(instead of having to play a full game, like FIFA) also you can choose the order of your pk takers, and free kickers. This didn’t matter to much, but Chelsea F.C. and Arsenal F.C. are called London F.C. and North London F.C. And their jerseys are differnt, but what matters is that the players are all there with their numbers like Chelsea’s new signing Edin Hazard, and Arsenal’s new signings Lucas Podolski, Oliver Giroud, and Santi Cazorla. The graphics are also incredible, and what I like is most players has it’s own playing style, like for example, in PES 2013 WII, when Cristiano Ronaldo steps up to take a penalty kick for Real Madrid and Portugal, he stops at the last second like in real life. The controls are good, but in my opinion, there are too many controls. Almost every control is used for gameplay like 1 and 2 and plus and minus.
