    Crucially, though, that intangible PES magic remains and expands with the potential of the new engine; matches take on their own personalities (helped by new player emotions – perform well and your play will visibly improve during the game) and you’ll discuss great goals for years, especially now that shooting and heading are weightier, more natural feeling. Even Master League is better.

    While the new engine, based on Kojima Production's FOX Engine, allowed a visual improvement, it also helped us realize that the game's physics are in need of a little renovation. The game modes are basically the same as in previous editions, but the real improvements were made in its core mechanics. Obsessive players are going to be able to control every detail of the game, but newcomers might feel overwhelmed by all the new possibilities that the complex control scheme allows.

    This is a good restart for the series and we're sure all the fans will appreciate this chapter.

    Its also frustrating that a game that can give so much on the pitch has very little to offer beyond it.

    PES 2014 is a huge improvement in a franchise with a new engine, which will provide football fans with countless hours of fun. Sadly for everything good Konami has done, if they don’t change their after sales administration, PES will never be top of the League again.

    PES 2014 shows its strengths in the most important places, but ultimately could be more appealing to a wider audience with some polish in the right places. Even so, it's a strong entry in the series that proves there's definitely room for two on the pitch.

    This is a game that tries to straddle the line between arcade action and sublime simulation and never succeeds at either. PES is at its best when it's selective with its realism: here's hoping next year it can go back to doing what it does best.

    I think is the new beginning of PES, as we know since last 5 years the game had some specific changes year by year. For now there are lots.

I enjoy this game, specially by the real way to score a goal, that's everybody know isn't easy.
    As PES fan I give them a chance to offer a new better game for 2015.

Its something new by Konami. Anyways good work Expand

    I haven't played a Konami Soccer game since my N64 days, back when it was called International Superstar Soccer. Aaaahhh.... That game willI haven't played a Konami Soccer game since my N64 days, back when it was called International Superstar Soccer. Aaaahhh.... That game will go down as my favorite soccer game of all time. So how does it's 2014 iteration measure up exactly?
    Well, for the most part it's pretty decent & I respect what Konami have tried to do here but it would be unfair to write a review based purely on intention so let's get back to the product as it stands. PRO EVO 2014 is not perfect. Not even close! It suffers with frame rate & control issues & yes, it's a rather barebones package when compared to what EA's FIFA 14 has to offer, yet underneath all that there's a pretty good game of soccer to be had. The play mechanics feel "evolved" and are indeed superior to FIFA 14 "on the pitch" but the bottom line is BOTH GAMES ARE SUB-STANDARD & the reason for this is quite simple: Both these companies will keep failing to "deliver" because they believe the world needs a football game each year. If they'd devoted more development time to their franchise just imagine what quality games would be possible? GTA V anyone?? With all the talk of the revolutionary new Fox Engine and other hyped new features I really wanted badly for this to be "the" definitive football game. It's not. But that's not to say you shouldn't get it. After all, what's there is better than FIFA 14, but only just!

    E voglio rispondere all'utente ''Juventus''... Si questa versione ha della grafica superiore. Ma realismo.. nulla. Non capisco come puoi direE voglio rispondere all'utente ''Juventus''... Si questa versione ha della grafica superiore. Ma realismo.. nulla. Non capisco come puoi dire che questa versione merita i nostri soldi e tempo da dedicarne. Mi hai deluso con la tua mancanza di perspicacia. Vuoi sempre paragonarla con Fifa? Ma sapiamo tutti quanti che Fifa fa schifo. Dovresti confrontare questa versione con quelle precendenti come Pro Evo 2013. che ritengo io e' una versione (nonostante la grafica) nettamente superiore con realismo, reattivita' di gioco, passaggi, cross, movimenti ecc. Veramente non riesco a capire come ce la fai etichettare questo un buon Gioco. Expand

    The gameplay is totally f@cked up. I play football games since 1998 (FIFA 98 on SEGA Megadrive) and for the first time I do not feel competentThe gameplay is totally f@cked up. I play football games since 1998 (FIFA 98 on SEGA Megadrive) and for the first time I do not feel competent on Regular level. This level is basically Semi-Pro on FIFA. It is frustrating like never before. Great graphics though, but the team has no idea about the rules of the game incl. ridiculous offsides, every tackle is a yellow card etc. There are some games that you will loose no matter what you do and how you play, what tactics you choose, which world class stars you have in the team, it is just something decided by the engine. And why the hell would somebody like to waste his time on this game then? This new way of passing with that pointer looks more like Counter Strike or some other 1st person shooter, just ridiculous. Hope that PES 2015 has some improvement really. Expand
