Great news! The reviews are already hitting the virtual newsstands across the globe. Keep an eye on this news item to keep up to date with what others think of PES 2013.
To make things easier, we’ve fired some of the articles through Google translate to give you them in English.
“Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 is the best PES since 2003′s benchmark third installment. Ignore it at your peril.”
“It puts us in a situation we’ve pretty much never encountered before, where FIFA and PES are both at the top of their game. Choose your favourite and have fun, or open your mind and buy both, because with PES now back to near its best this really is a golden era for football games.”
IGN 8.5/10 (link includes video review too!)
“After years of heartache for PES fans, it’s great to see Konami’s footy game finally beginning to step out from EA’s gargantuan shadow.”
“Like a beat ’em up that takes years to master, plenty of button combinations must be learnt when playing at the top level. Konami’s latest outing shares the same values as arcade stalwarts such as Tekken, offering a sense of achievement for every individual that decides to press start.”
“Ladies and gentlemen, Pro Evolution Soccer is back.
After years toiling in the wilderness, riddled with depression and self-doubt, the former king of videogame football has risen triumphantly to top the league right at the back end of this console generation. It’s been a hell of a ride.”
“Has my short time with PES 13 converted me back to the series? YES.”
“PES 2013 is a brilliant game, a perfectly viable alternative to FIFA 13 and if Konami continue to approach their game in this way, we could have a very tasty showdown next season.”
“As far as soccer on the Xbox 360 goes I think it may be the best we will get”
“Konami pulls a Man-City-style turnaround”
(Translated) That in any case due to its gameplay is certainly a worthy alternative and exciting football to be taken into account.
“now PES’ unique strengths are refined enough to make it a genuinely worthwhile alternative. And hey, if nothing else, it’s probably the only footy game that’ll ever feature Motherwell as a Champions League outfit.”
CVG UK 9.1/10
“At last, Konami gets it right”
Playstation Universe 8.5/10
“This is the first time for a number of years that we’ve been totally engrossed in Pro Evolution Soccer. We’re sure PES fans are going to love the improvements and its fluid gameplay and freedom on the pitch may well attract back some of the fans that the series lost over the last few years. ”
“We do sometimes, even if it is briefly, get the feeling we’re playing a classic PES game from the series. Still rough around the edges though.”
GameStar Germany 90/100
“Less pace, more tricks. All smarter not just the goalie.”[LEFT]
