    Overall, what PES 2018 lacks in authenticity, it more than makes up for in gameplay. Bettering its predecessor on the pitch, PES 2018 is another fantastic entry in the series.

    The new edition of PES does not offer a revolution. But you need to remember that Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 doesn't need one - it's a great sporting game that just got a little better. Ball control improvement and additions in Master League are welcome, but the small number of licenses is not (as usual). But all in all it's still a very good game.

    PES 2018 almost reaches perfection in gameplay, but its offer of licenses and game modes is still not enough for an outstanding experience overall.

    While it profits from a few small improvements that make the action on the pitch that much more intriguing, the standstill in terms of mode selection and presentation are a concern.

    A lot has gone into changing how the game is played in PES 2018. The more measured approach is wonderful, as is Real Touch+. That's why the parts that need an upgrade stick out more than they have in years.

    On the pitch, PES 2018 is almost as good as it gets. Fluid mechanics, jaw-dropping goalscoring and real precision in the controls make for thrilling matches and spinning highlight reels. Too bad the old flaws are still there – licenses are sparse and the commentary horrendous. If you can look past the errors, this is a must-buy for football fanatics.

    I came into PES 2018 ready to be won over, and converted into a PES fan. Unfortunately, I came away being disappointed.

    A série Pro Evolution Soccer vem sofrendo para entrar nos eixos desde o catastrófico PES 2014.
    Com a mudança de engine, e grande dificuldade de adaptação a nova tecnologia, a Konami viu seu maior concorrente FIFA dominar o posto de melhor jogo de futebol.
    Porém, esse domínio está seriamente ameaçado com o lançamento do PES 2018.
    Esse jogo da a sensação de que estávamos presos desde 2014, e agora finalmente fomos libertados.
    Os dribles finalmente funcionam.
    As críticas podem ter elogiado PES 2017, porém, sabemos o quanto era triste toda vez que se acertava um drible, ficar uma sensação de que aquilo mais se parecia com um bug dentro do game tamanha a lentidão e feiura dos movimentos ( problema que repito, vem desde PES 2014 ).
    Hoje isso acabou. Os dribles ( apesar de alguns ainda serem lentos como a pedalada por exemplo ) ocorrem de maneira fluída, realista e divertida. O que antes estava no jogo apenas por ter que estar, agora pode de fato ser usado como recurso, o que dá uma dimensão nunca antes vista na série PES.
    Somado a isso temos novidades e situações ainda mais realistas dentro de campo como:

    - expressões faciais cada vez melhores de raiva, alegria e dor por parte dos jogadores;
    - sistema apurado de chutes, passes, e cobranças de bola parada ( você realmente percebe nesse jogo a diferença entre o bom jogador e o grande craque );
    - goleiros mais realistas com diversas animações novas ( ainda precisando de ajustes na hora de encaixar as defesas mais fáceis onde erram inexplicavelmente podendo estragar uma partida por causa disso )
    - movimentação e corpos dos jogadores completamente reformulados;

    Infelizmente o jogo utiliza da mecânica do Handcap em diversos momentos, não sendo tão absurdo quanto o seu rival FIFA, mas ainda assim manchando negativamente o game.

    Na parte estética do jogo, a ausência de diversas licenças pesa a favor do concorrente FIFA, porém com o uso de um bom option file pode-se brevemente resolver esse problema.
    Podemos também criar o uniforme do nosso time para encarar os clássicos modos my club e master league ( onde infelizmente não temos tantas novidades assim ) utilizando de diversas opções de personalização oferecidas dentro do próprio jogo, ou com a ajuda de sites especializados em personalização de uniformes, criar um arquivo de imagem onde não há nenhum limite para sua imaginação.

    A conexão dos jogos online também está muito melhor, e com a adição do modo Coop, a diversão está garantida também nesse quesito.

    PES 2018 é sem sombra de dúvidas o melhor jogo da série.
    Ainda que não seja perfeito por alguns motivos técnicos e de polimento, merece um 9, tendo em vista de que a sensação que ele proporciona supera qualquer um desses problemas.

    Os amantes de futebol só tem a comemorar.

At the beggining , first matches that you play, you have the feeling that the game is very nice, but as you progress and get more into it, you realize more cons than pro's.
    pro: good gameplay, realistic passing, shooting, scoring and that it!
    cons: horrible online, lag, few players with more that 3 stars connection rating, the defending is absolutely horrible( defenders go to far away from the attackers and the ball, goalkeepers makes stupid mistakes in key moments), My Club is a pure P2W game mode as contracts are very expensive( a strategy from konami to make people buy coins with real money), very similar to Star Wars Battlefront 2 , online divisions rating system is useless as is nowhere explained( in MY Club is realistic with 3 point per win ). As a personal conclusion , the game doesent deserve more than a 5. Konami must fix at least the defending and to cut down the contracts cost.

    ESTE JUEGO ES UNA PORQUERÍA. TODOS LOS EQUIPOS JUEGAN IGUAL. LA COM CON TRES PASES TE LLEGA A TU ÁREA Y TE METE GOL. NO LO RECOMIENDO PARA NADA.
