It is time again to get your soccer on, PES 2018 is here and this marks the 17th instalment of this series. Time to see what is new and what is better.
Every gamer and football/soccer fan knows that there are two major games out there, and with every new release there are battles that takes place to see which one is the better to get and which one has great new features. In my opinion, both deserves their respective place.
PES has always been a bit behind in terms of licensing with a lot of football clubs but recently it has started picking up and I’m happy to say that they have achieved more licencing with PES 2018. It is always cool to play with licencing content in sports games but at the same time gamers do not always understand what it entails to actually get said licensing.
PES for me feels more like a simulation, where the other football games feels more arcade like and as I said I think both are valid and do have their places in the market. PES 2018 has some great new features this year like Real Touch+ which adds a new dimension to your ball control, allowing full body touch which looks more realistic. Strategic dribbling gives you more control and strategic moves. A new online Co-Op mode is added 2v2 and 3v3.
You can now also compete in the PES League in new modes including myClub, Random Selection Match and Online Co-Op. There are more improvements for you to discover and enjoy when you start the game.
The graphics look stunning as usual and playing in games just create an amazing atmosphere when the scenery, commentary and audio all gels together.
PES 2018 is a definite improvement from last year and it is great to see how Konami keeps on building on this great series.
