Whoever made that decision at Konami should be sacked and never work in gaming again as they quite simply have zero grasp of the games target market. Expand

    I've played PES since it's beginning. Their attempt for providing full manual control is fine PS3, but horrible synergy with PC. However, this minor setback is a tribute for a better soccer gaming future. This is not with what I'm concerned. This game has the worst AI ever generated on PES.

Their attempt for providing full manual control is fine PS3, but horrible synergy with PC. However, this minor setback is a tribute for a better soccer gaming future. This is not with what I'm concerned. This game has the worst AI ever generated on PES. The game from beginner to regular looks like the AI is retarded. AI constantly kicks out balls from his part of the field while doing to nothing to provide fun gameplay, challenge, or some kind of learning experience for new players. From professional to superstar, AI cannot miss from inside penalty area (you have possession 70%, shots 15; he simply shoots once and scores), and players from better clubs simply cannot miss. This completely destroys gameplay and fun. Next thing I encountered is heavily disturbed controls while defending. It seems that "the player you want to pick" while defending with q (L1) is far less precise and slower than in former PES. What I mean is that while you are trying to pick the target defender, the opponent already scores. While other PES-es had adjustable support (how much assist), this has only full assist, semi-assist (retarded like hell), no assist. This was the largest impact I felt as I am unable to defend or do anything in 20% of the times (which is too much failures). Oh, and if your defender makes a slight mistake, he drops out and doesn't return to a position which you would expect him to, but rather does improbable, stupid things. So, yes, even AI of your team is retarded. Buy or download older PES-es as they are much more playable. Expand

    Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 manages to revitalize essential aspects of the game’s rhythm and gameplay details. The end result is a deep, interesting, ever-enjoyable football game that will cater to the needs of both hardcore followers of the franchise and casual gamers. [November 2012]

    We've approached the new PES with increased caution because of the last season – but the core gameplay is great and the flaws are of minor character. [Nov 2012]

    The latest iteration of Konami's football game is fine, but inorganic, stolid, and a little dull. Pick FIFA over this on PC.
