Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 - Engineered With Emotion
Nov 14, 2013Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 is very much what its name implies, an evolution. Konami have taken off the gloves and issued a very strong challenge to EA; whether or not this will translate to actual sales is yet to be seen as this battle will be fought over the coming year.
Sep 24, 2013It sacrifices little of the feel while introducing some new concepts that I hope stick around. While aspects like the bid to introduce emotion to players remains inconclusive and I'd like the developer refine its control scheme, for the first time in a while the future of the franchise is more exciting than its past.
Oct 2, 2013On the field we run into a more complex and deeper game, in which it’s all about patience and steel nerves. This is partly because PES 2014 is more a soccer simulator than a game and partly because the game part of it still has many flaws. It’s a promising step for the next generation of PES-games though, that much is obvious.
Sep 19, 2013This new PES 2014 has made efforts in its gameplay, offering freer and more realistic actions, but it disappoints on the technical side. Slowdowns in front of goal are annoying, most of the players (except the stars) are unrecognizable, the public is poorly done... In short, we are still far, far away from catching the ogre FIFA.

PES' gameplay is far better than FIFA, it just needs that final off-field mode to fully surpass Fifa. The current sales are already in PES' favour and that shows that people are truly acknowledging PES… Expand

Pues bien, llega una nueva temporada futbolística y Konami quiere recuperar el trono que una vez fue suyo, o al menos recortar la ventaja para hacer dudar a los usuarios en qué título deportivo comprar. Seguramente estéis de acuerdo conmigo en que el mayor lastre que tenía PES era su motor gráfico. Gracias a Hideo Kojima y su nuevo motor gráfico, el Fox Engine, que entre otros grandes juegos moverá el próximo Metal Gear Solid.
Gracias al Fox Engine podremos disfrutar de unos partidos con una calidad gráfica impresionante. Mencionar que el graderío, los efectos de iluminación y las texturas son el mayor logro del estudio en la actual generación. Pero aquí tenemos que frenar nuestro entusiasmo y darle un palito a Konami. No tendremos partidos con lluvia, excusándose el estudio en qué no le daba tiempo añadir la física de la pelota con el terreno de juego encharcado…
Destacar que dispondremos del sistema True Ball Techque, que logrará que los movimientos del balón sean más realistas y no parezca una pelota de playa. Esto se notará desde el primer momento, ya sea a la hora de pasar o disputando el balón. Hablando de disputas, destacamos el espectacular contacto físico que ofrece este nuevo PES, con choques y entradas que seguramente os impresionarán.
Los rostros de los jugadores están recreados prácticamente a la perfección gracias al PES ID que ya se añadió el año pasado. Pero en esta ocasión además de aumentar el número de jugadores recreados, han añadido sus movimientos y gestos más característicos.
Nos ha gustado mucho la forma que tiene Konami de ambientar los partidos, que es otro punto a destacar del nuevo PES. Antes de comenzar el partido veremos a los jugadores en túneles de vestuarios y colocarse posteriormente para que la prensa pueda tomar todas las fotos que necesiten. También podremos ver a los jugadores protestar cuando el árbitro pite el final por alguna jugada polémica vivida en el encuentro. Los cánticos de las aficiones son reales y tomados directamente de los estadios lo que hará que nos metamos de lleno en los partidos. Sin duda, las licencias estrella del juego son la Champions League, la Copa Libertadores, la UEFA Europa League y la AFC (la Champions de Asia). Por eso, hay equipos sueltos de ligas como Alemania, tales como el Bayern de Múnich.
Hablando de esto último, Konami ha incluido la nueva característica llamada Heart, que su función es que los jugadores son motivados por el público del estadio dependiendo si juegan como locales o visitantes. Punto negativo para nuestra liga que se queda huérfana en lo que a la recreación de estadios se refiere.
Pero por desgracia no es oro todo lo que reluce, ya que encontraremos algunos puntos negativos que seguramente os irriten más de la cuenta. Será prácticamente imposible quitarle el balón a nuestro rival sin hacer falta y si lo logramos será por fallo de nuestro rival, no por mérito nuestro. Los árbitros bajo mi punto de vista son bastante tarjeteros, ya que faltas que parecen inofensivas las castigarán con cartulina amarilla.
El lanzamiento a balón parado es otro punto a discutir. Ahora dispondremos de una línea formada por puntos para apuntar en la dirección que queramos y seguramente os sea útil para lanzamientos precisos pero echaréis en falta sacar el balón rápido para sorprender al rival.
El modo multijugador tampoco nos funcionó como debería. La estabilidad de los partidos deja aún que desear, con un lag molesto que influye en la disputa de los partidos. Se hace raro que a estas alturas todavía sigan pasando cosas como estas. El estudio se tira piedras sobre su propio tejado al no cuidar un componente tan importante para la mayoría de usuarios.
En conclusión, Konami ha empezado prácticamente de cero para asentar las bases para la siguiente generación, porque en la actual llega tarde. Tomamos a PES 2014 como un título de transición y es de agradecer que pongan empeño en lograr recuperar aquellos años maravillosos. Algo que tendrán que mejorar será la adquisición de licencias pero aún así nos encontramos un buen juego gráficamente muy vistoso y con unos efectos sonoros bastante logrados, con comentarios de Carlos Martínez y Julio Maldonado “Maldini”.… Expand
Apr 2, 2014Okay, where to start. PES 2014 is still PES, I've been playing PES since it was ISS (getting on for 20 years ago) and it hasn't changed allOkay, where to start. PES 2014 is still PES, I've been playing PES since it was ISS (getting on for 20 years ago) and it hasn't changed all that much in that time, the core gameplay remains recognisable.
This version however, has quite a few downsides.
The framerate is shocking, when you're actually in play it's fine but the pre match cutscenes and replays look like .gif files.
The crowd moves and it looks terrible, they probably have 15 frames of animation, and they're very low res.
The English commentary is nowhere near as good as it should be, it's possibly the worst of all the sports games that have commentary, it's getting to the point where I just don't think they should include it.
It is constantly loading something.
It's still pretty fun though, if you can get it cheap and despise FIFA, go for it. And personally I don't mind the lack of official licenses, I enjoy the editing. I spent many an hour on PES 4 and 5 editing all the premier league teams, but all in all the technical issues this game has disappoint me. I don't think old gen consoles like the PS3 and 360 can handle the new Fox game engine, and it suffers.… Expand
Sep 24, 2013where do i start...i think most PES players were looking forward to this game. Konami come out of the blocks with all the PR they could thinkwhere do i start...i think most PES players were looking forward to this game. Konami come out of the blocks with all the PR they could think of. New Engine, Heart, Mass, blah blah blah, but they seem to have forgot how to create a good football game.
This game game is clearly not finished. Far too many problems with this game for it to be enjoyable, and at the end of the day even if your trying to simulate a sport or whatever its a game and it has to be fun. Problems are frame rate issues ,especially around the penalty box. Players do not react quick enough, they turn like tanks animations take far to long to complete when tackling etc allow to Ai to exploit you. Unresponsive commands, it takes far too long for players to do what you want them to do after having pressed a button
Laggy menus, online completely broken, shall i go on??..this year is just a complete and utter mess, underneath it all there seems to be a game trying to get out, but its been very poorly implemented, and I just dont understand how any reviewer can give this a positive score in its current state. Konami need to patch this game and patch it quick. They should be ashamed of releasing this,… Expand

Sacrificing game-play dynamics and mechanics for more detail. pes2010 was a great game 14 Is almost unbearable. Through balls fly ahead as though shooting on goal, it is virtually impossible to tackle, the midfield is non existent. the controls when on the ball feel very sluggish. All the features that made me stay away from fifa are now creeping into pes. Konami really need to go back to basics and stick to their own identity. I'm currently playing pes2012 become a legend, and I cant get enough of it. Why does the game dynamics between become a legend and exhibition change so drastically. i acknowledge that the players form and motivation come into their game-play now. But for an exhibition match that shouldnt be anything but 100%. And even so, we do not want a simulator. Gamers want the game. PES has always been a much more free and fast soccer game than fifa. Now they seem to have gone backwards. I would settle for the pes2010 graphics now and just use all their resources and developments on the gameplay. I dont need a stadium that is mindblowingly detailed, unless theres a mode where i can be a spectator and walk around ordering food and finding my seat.… Expand
Dec 18, 2013Okay having persevered with this game for a while, I now find myself in a position to give an honest review. Konami have released withoutOkay having persevered with this game for a while, I now find myself in a position to give an honest review. Konami have released without doubt the poorest PES game of the lot. A real own goal of epic proportions I fear.
Where to start?
We all know what PES lacks in official licences and presentation it usually makes up for in the slick smooth game play that gives it the real football edge over the more predictable and clumsy looking FIFA. But this latest PES 2014 is a real gut wrenching embarrassing let down. They've rushed out what can only be described as an unfinished broken game with this new graphics engine the core of all it's problems. The frame rate during the game is just all over the place and causes anti-dramatic slow downs during a match which are quite honestly horrifying and something that I can't help but be reminded of times gone by when you'd be left heart broken during a maiden voyage into a bad game conversion that a Sega Megardrive would be embarrassed about (Super Kickoff anyone?). So, if you want to watch your 30 yard screaming effort that just whipped passed the post on the instant replay, well forget about it because replays are stuttery and jerkier then a layer of dired out old beef and quite frankly off putting to the point where you'd wish you could just get rid of them altogether for the time it saves. Then there's the passing and tackling, the game has just got so wrapped up in the realistic movement of the ball, they forgot about the realistic movement of the players. Again the player movement looks clumsy and tackling has lost it's real time control the previous versions of PES were so good at creating. In this game you somehow win the ball or lose it without much effort put in either way. Then there's the delayed responsiveness when you have the ball. Want to get a shot off? Well sit down and apply for planning permission first because it takes that long for the moment you hit the shoot button for your player to actually kick the ball that by the time his leg is swinging back, the balls back in your own half and your left contemplating switching the game off or throwing the controller agains the TV screen in pure frustration. It's like having off line lag, thats the only way I can describe it. The football simulation known as PES has sadly been obliterated by this God awful mess.
Then the nit picking, the menu's are just plain stupid. The team selection screen has been annoying for a few PES games now but this year they'e just completely overlooked this and it looks half baked where player names over lap one another. It looks like a school kid has designed it. And how long do the screens take to load? Put the kettle on and wait for the team strips to load up, you'll have time to let your tea cool down first before they eventually appear on screen.
Then the Stadiums again are disappointing, why oh why do we have the same old rubbish every year, two San Siro's yet again??? WHY???? Bring back Anfield or just do something original. That Konami stadium was crap on the PS1, why is it still in there?
I could go on but you probably get the picture, and it's just unfortunate that Konami don't or no doubt won't.
My only salvaging thought is that this is a prototype for what will be an immense PES 2015 on the more capable PS4/Xbox One next year. There must be potential in there somewhere with this overhaul but Konami have a lot to do bring this game back up the level of quality it has been renown for by it's fans for over a decade. Sadly they've should have shelved this sorry effort until they had the game right, even if that meant skipping a year. At least their reputation my still hold firm. I wonder now how many like myself will skip future releases having been so badly let down by this pathetic effort.
Avoid this game and carry on with the far far superior PES 2013, you'll save yourself alot of heartache.… Expand

I keep on wanting it to be worth it, but haveI never thought that I would load a pes game and regret playing EACH AND EVERY time I do. I keep on wanting it to be worth it, but have toaccept that it won't be. AI and passing is terrible, why the hell do you need to use two control sticks just to beat an inferior player? The difficulty setting seems to centre more around a a manufactured inability to get a rebound to go anywhere near one of your players rather than increased AI. I may have to go FIFA next year, which is heart breaking.… Expand
