    On the pitch, Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 is the undisputed king, but all around it there's far too much standstill.

    Looking at it negatively, you could say that PES 2018 is torn between two ideas, even seems to have some kind of identity crisis. Glass half full types will see it as a lovely soccer game, that can even be more fun than FIFA when played with friends. The added realism even gives it the credibility needed to give it an edge over FIFA.

    Finally PC players too can play the game in a next-generation version.

    When you get onto the pitch, no other football game feels as good as PES 2018.

    PES 2018 is Konami’s classic back at its strongest on PC, and the small changes to the feel of the gameplay have genuine ramifications on the pitch. It might lack the big budget feel of FIFA, most keenly felt in the match atmosphere, commentary and the lack of TV-like production values, but it plays a damn fine game of football.
  6. Good football dynamics are overshadowed by the lack of licenses and some buggy scripts. All is fine, except those things.

    Finally, after two years of waiting, the PC version of Pro Evolution Soccer is on par with current console offerings.

    I like how you have to build the attacking phase and it is not just through ball and run, run (ie FIFA)

Like swimming through molasses, everything seems so slooooooow! Also, player switching seems to often pick the wrong (illogical) player, which makes defending hopeless. This game gives me a vague notion of control, but no more than that. PES Expand

    I hope they'll close the series.After 10 years I played the game... AGAIN .. new version ? where ? The same damned problem... when AI decideI hope they'll close the series.After 10 years I played the game... AGAIN .. new version ? where ? The same damned problem... when AI decide you've to lose ... you lose ... doesn't matter what you do, AI start to run like a god, no passage failed till they get the goal -.- then, it's your turn ... but even if I do all the things in the perfect way ... last passage in front of the door... ALWAYS a **** , or my player shoot the ball EVERYWHERE ( but not in the door )...the alternative is that the goalkeeper act like superman ...It's really really a BAD things...even not talking about the myclub ... to get a decent player how much money I've to spend ??? 100 € ??? and in myclub competition everything seems to be made to drive you to spend more money ...
    REALLY REALLY a bad feeling ... I think Konami shouldn't forget that this is a GAME ... and a game should be fun... not stressing.
    DON'T WASTE MONEY on this game, really...
