As befits a game endorsed by Cristiano Ronaldo - a player who embodies the skill and grace of top level football - PES 2013: Pro Evolution Soccer sees the series returning to its roots, with the emphasis on the individual skills of the world's best players, and giving the player the total freedom to play any style of ball, which includes for the first time full control over shots. This follows further consultation with both football and PES fans alike, and the result is the most faithful recreation of modern day football to date, with players modeled to match the running motions, abilities and playing styles, and the flicks and turns of their real-life counterparts.

PES 2013: Pro Evolution Soccer will also boast better connectivity and atmosphere. The popular myPES application will extend the connectivity and communication between Facebook-using PES fans, while the game's audio effects are being tied closer to the on-field action to provide the kind of buzz seen at top-tier matches, with crowds growing in excitement as their team starts to exert pressure.

  • PES FullControl (PES FC): Never before has a football game offered such a level of control over the way it is played

Total freedom of control: Pro Evolution Soccer introduced the concept of freedom of movement - the new 'PES FC' in PES 2013: Pro Evolution Soccer goes further with total freedom over ball control.

    Dynamic first touch: PES 2013 introduces subtle ways to receive the ball, from traps, gently lifting it past an attacker to run on to or a variety of other moves. First touch is everything and players can trap the ball using the R2 button, killing the speed of a well-hit pass and bringing it instantly under control, or using the momentum of the pass to turn a defender.

      Full manual shooting and full manual passing: PES 2013 offers fully manual passing and for the first time ever manual shooting, allowing users to determine the height and power of each. Long low passes can be sent skimming across the pitch, while shooting the user has total control over where the shot is placed. Skill and precision are needed to master these, but passes can be made into open areas, allowing lone strikers to thrive, while offering an unrivalled variety in ways to score.

        Dribbling: The speed with which a player moves with the ball has been slowed in line with real matches, but using R2 allows players to add various styles to their close control. Players can vary the speed of their dribbling, and cushion the ball as they move freely within a 360-degree circle. The new system allows players to knock a ball past a player and collect it, nutmeg them, or hold up play by shielding the ball as team mates find space and make runs.

          Full manual one-two: Active one-two passes can be made, with the second player being moved in any direction), facilitating various tactical movements.

            Response defending: Countering the attacking options the new dribbling system offers, is a beautifully-balanced defense system. Players can use R2 and X to slow an attack, with a double-tap of the X button prompting a perfectly-timed challenge. Full 360-degree control means that players can check runs and steal the ball from a parallel position, while the individuality element will see world renowned defenders using aerial dominance of physicality to win the ball.

              Goalkeepers: Even the game's 'keepers benefit from more control, while their distribution is more precise thanks to the addition of a power gauge when they throw the ball, creating opportunities for new, quicker counter attacks.

              Forget demo 2, this is a huge improvement upon that. Once you play all the training tutorials only then will you see everything new this wonderful game has to offer. Skills that are easy to pull off and actually useful. New shooting mechanics, manual one twos, improved gk's and the CPU will school you in football unless you adapt and learn the new mechanics. Defending is way better and easier than the demo, if a player gets the better of you it's purely your fault, no shouting at your stupid ai team mates, you've got full control over everything now so it's 100% down to you.

              It still lacks kicences and the commentary is nowhere near FIFA standards but that's not a deal breaker or even important to me. I'll download an edit file for free if I really want the licence players and offical kits.

              Online is silky smooth with no drop in framerates (so far). Plenty of online competitions to join in I'd you want or your standard head to head game.

              It's still got all the cup competitions, champions league and copa liberatordes competition. Then there's football life (master league) which can be played online and offline if you prefer.

              Both FIFA and PES are fantastic this year but if like me your an original ps2 PES player then these never been a better time to go back or if your new, get onboard and enjoy this very special interpretation of the beautiful game!

               Massive improvement!

              I have been a huge PES fan for many years. Although, last year I was quite disappointed with PES, so I made a change and purchased FIFA 12.

              Once the demos for PES and FIFA 13 was released, I gave them both a good trial, and I came to a conclusion...

              If you already had FIFA 12 and you want more of the same action, go with FIFA 13 cos it hasn't improved much.

              If you fancy a completely revamped footy game, go with PES, as it has improved in just about all areas.

              I've noticed the problem with FIFA is, the teams all feel the same - it doesn't matter which team u are or who you're against, the AI always feels the same. The teams on PES all play different styles, bringing a bit more variety, this becomes much more of a challenge as it becomes more difficult.

              Basically if you want a nice 'easy to pick up and play' game, buy FIFA 13. If you want a challenge and get your money's worth, go with PES 13.

              Clearly I have reverted back to PES this year, I found FIFA too repetitive.

              EDIT: I now have purchased the full version of PES 2013 and I'm still really impressed. Obviously, the biggest downfall with this game is the lack of licences. But if its gameplay that is mostly important to you this shouldn't be a problem. Although, you can purchase cheap unofficial updates for this game to correct all the names/kits/etc.

              This game has become very realistic. But it's so realistic that you may have to be so patient at times, like playing a possession game and only just win a 1-0 victory. The AI has become a lot smarter, especially now that there are 6 difficulty modes.

              I'm especially enjoying the master league. Despite the fact that people are disappointed with the whole Boots and Abilities add ons, I think it's an extra bonus to the game. You earn points by winning games, then use the points to buy abilities etc in the Pes shop.

              I'm definitely impressed with PES 2013. I've not felt this way about it since PES 5. It has been a let down almost every year since the Ps3 was released, but now they seem to be back on track... And fifa may just be losing this battle for once...

               Spot On.

              The past few years have been somewhat of a transition for PES, and not a particularly pleasant one.

              This years version uses the same game engine, but builds on prevous versions and irons out any annoying bugs. The goalies are fixed, finesse shots added, lobs are now possible, various tricks added, new first touch controls etc etc.

              It really is a thoroughly enjoyable game, which hasn't come out my PS3 since i bought it.

               conversion of a FIFA fan!!

              FIFA is in my blood, iv had every copy ever since I unwrapped FIFA 94 for my SNES for christmas, in my eyes every year there was nothing that could be wrong with this game. Iv never liked PES, never liked the way the game felt, the way it played, the way it looked and the fact it never had licences for names! Typical FIFA fan right! I tried my best to love FIFA this year but couldn't, PES 13 has smashed it to pieces, iv seen through the license problems and everything PES never had and now I see what it does have, PES is the most realistic football game ever! Every movement, every tackle, pass, shot, goal, save, foul, the odd mess up a keeper might do and even the offside rule (which in my opinion football games have struggled to re create) are brilliant! FIFA now feels like much to repetitive game that's too easy to play on every difficulty, every team plays the same, you can win matches by scoring the same type of goal, yeah it may look good but what good is that if its gameplay is boring. You have to give PES 13 a couple hours of your time and you'll be hooked! If you want easy arcade style game that's easy to play and win buy FIFA, if you want a realistic real football game that's going to keep you occupied till next years editions then buy PES!

              FIFA fan converted, rest in piece FIFA!

              its frustrating but simply beautiful. The real football is not fair as well full of unpredictable outcomes. thats the summary of the new pes. its so free to pass or do anything on the pitch. Have played over 8 games now and not won any. played on professional and am very good player yet i just could not beat stoke city. u just have to be tactical when playing this game. if u not so good with passing then this is not for u. forget fifa 13. this is the REAL
