PES 2013 is fine. FIFA fanboys can suck it.Posted: September 26, 2012
Year in year out, the football gaming world is thrilled by the release of two behemoths – FIFA and Pro Evolution Soccer. Both developers set the release date to almost the same day, probably hoping the rivalry will be fierce and the gap between fans of both games will get wider. I, myself, have been playing PES since the release of PES 4 (it’s been 8 years already) but I’ve occasionally switched to FIFA in order to check and experience the “differences”.
The fact is PES always used to outshine FIFA in terms of player movement and general AI of opponents. In 2013, it’s no different. FIFA lacks the common mistakes that players commit on the pitch, the game is too much arcade and perfect, while PES forces the player to think and predict what’s going to happen next, even though you might get screwed on the simplest move there is. And that what keeps you to the screen. You get irritated. Sure. You want to break the pad, alright. Yet you will never give up on the game.
Here’s a short clip that I made the other day.
