The Other Guy On The Pitch

  • Conclusion: PES 2013 is a very respectable soccer game that maintains its excellence on the field but unfortunately fall further behind in the bells and whistles department making it a distant runner-up in this year's battle for soccer supremacy.

  • Summary: While it's not a terrible game by any stretch, Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 fails to upend its stiff competition once again. There is simply a better choice of futbol video game available this season.
  • Pros: Beautiful presentation, Well-paced soccer action
  • Cons: Deceptively difficult to control, Level of realism not nearly as high as competition

Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 Review

  • Excerpt: One of the biggest rivalries between franchises has always been the Pro Evolution Soccer aka Winning Eleven vs FIFA debate. While back in the PlayStation 2 era, the FIFA games were always known for their arcadey gameplay and the PES games for their simulation, the tables turned in the current-gen consoles. The FIFA series had become the de-facto football simulation game with the fast-paced arcade gameplay taken up by the PES games.

  • Excerpt: The problem with reviewing a football simulation game like FIFA or PES is that the one will always be compared with the other and there will be just as many apologists for one as there are foes of the other. I have heard a lot of these arguments over the last few days and, quite frankly, I have to ask: Who really cares?

  • Conclusion: Although I don't keep up with either of the leading soccer games, PES 2013 seems competent and capable of challenging FIFA 13 for a spot in your collection.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 review

GamesRadar
25 September 2012
  • Excerpt: In the battle between dueling sports franchises, soccer games have been rather one-sided throughout this console generation. Pro Evolution Soccer, once the dominant sim of the PlayStation 2 era, faltered with some huge missteps, while EA's FIFA franchise has nearly widened the gap into a chasm with a continuous stream of innovative features. Konami has taken some big steps to right the ship with Pro Evolution Soccer 2013.
  • Pros: Great balance between arcade and sim play, Improved AI and tactical moves, Deep, nuanced play
  • Cons: Feature rot from other elements, Steep learning curve, Awful tutorial doesn't help learning curve

Neither Promotion Nor Relegation

25 September 2012
  • Conclusion: Concept: PES 2013 is mainly about refinements, but the new equipment system is a cool step forward Graphics: The running animations are still a bit stiff, and the graphics are solid but don’t wow Sound: The crowd does a nice job of responding to the flow of play Playability: From new manual controls to different ways to trap the ball, the series continues to layer on options for those who want to use them Entertainment: The series is still solid on the pitch, and the...

Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 Review

GameSpot
20 September 2012
  • Excerpt: ' At first glance the changes made to Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 might seem like a bunch of slight, almost superficial tweaks; you'd be hard pressed to find one standout feature from its long list of AI improvements, new tactical moves, or graphical revamps. And yet, on the pitch, it's one of the most rewarding football games out there.
  • Pros: Slower pace gives you more control, Much improved ball physics, New defending system is more natural to use, Plays a great, classically scrappy game of football
  • Cons: New moves are tricky to master, Untouched single- and multiplayer modes beginning to show their age, Dreary and dated presentation, Terrible commentary
