    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)

    Un gran juego que se ve totalmente empañado por estos defectos:

    - Demasiada facilidad para dominar el juego por alto, es cierto que en la vida real, el juego por alto hace mucho en fútbol y por jugadas de estrategia, pero es quizás algo exagerado en PES.

    - Si juegas con amigos de seguro estás ante un juego magnífico, ahora bien vs IA ..., la máquina está trucada para que pierdas ciertos partidos, esto es especialmente notable en los niveles más altos. He llegado a perder partidos teniendo la posesión, y haciendo 15(10) en tiros a puerta frente a 4(3).

    Y en ese partido perder 2-1 y sus dos goles ser un tiro desde Cuenca, con un defensa encima, que parece disparado por un silo; y el otro un pase a un jugador mío que se da la vuelta para no coger el balón y le deja un pasillo enorme al rival para que encare solo a puerta.

    Obviamente vs FIFA está muy por encima pero tiene ciertos fallos que hacen que este juego pierda todo su esplendor, porque en lo demás es absolutamente genial, le he bajado mucha nota por lo de la IA trucada, horrible eso, de no ser por ello tendría un 8-9.

    Esperemos que 2K saque su juego de fútbol para tener más competencia, ya que EA en marketing no tiene rival y PES en simulación tampoco.

    Un saludo.

    I don't understand as in 2017 it is possible to play in PES. If there is a FIFA. Well really after start of a game the first that I haveI don't understand as in 2017 it is possible to play in PES. If there is a FIFA. Well really after start of a game the first that I have checked it the version. And precisely it 2018? Because with 2011, in which I really played the last any changes haven't noticed. Well except graphics, it became better. But all it is also awful. I not on PS3 start a game, and on PC. There is no optimization at all, it is much worse and worse than FIFA 18. Video reviews it is unreal hang, and emotions of players look as if I have started a horror. The only plus of a game which has forced me to play PES 2018 - licenses (comically against the background of FIFA) for UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League. And well still there is Camp Nou)) 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...

    This could be a great game, if it had a great online. Unfortunately, online modes are the worse online experience in a game since modem times.This could be a great game, if it had a great online. Unfortunately, online modes are the worse online experience in a game since modem times. You can have the best fiber connection, the game will lag like hell. Then there are those cheaters that lag the game and if you are winning the match they will lag that much that the match will be declared null. Worst thing about this is that Konami doesn't care about these issues, you can send report mails and they will print these to wipe their asses. They have your money, that's all that they want.

    Oh, one more thing, AI just sucks, it's totally unreal, you lose the ball when the AI wants, your players are slower when the AI wants, your goalkeeper will not stop a ball... terrible.

    If you are buying this to play online, just don't do it, it's unplayable.
