Konami

Platforms:
PS3, Xbox 360, PC, Wii U, 3DS

Genre:Sports

Release Date:September 20, 2012. December 20, 2012 for 3DS and Wii U

Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 is the latest installment in the award winning Pro Evolution Soccer series created by Konami.

It’s the rival to EA’s FIFA series and has seen its influence reduce and they are fighting to get it back. PES 2013 contains a lot of new additions to the game and provides a good foundation for the team to develop even further.

There are new licenses which brings in 20 Brazilian teams and the whole lineup has been bolstered by Konami.

The game was released on September 21st, 2013 for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. While a 3DS released was set on December 20. The game was released on the Wii on the same date. [reference]

The Wii U version is also confirmed to be region locked like the 3DS version. [reference]

The game was reviewed by us, and while we felt it was very good there were still some thing lacking that could have made it a solid contender to the FIFA franchise. [reference]

Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid is featured on the front cover.

Development

Konami has mentioned that Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 will be the last game in the series to run on the same engine that has been powering plenty of games before it. The next game in the series will run on Kojima’s Fox Engine, which is also Konami’s next-generation engine.

This gives rise to speculation that the game will be a cross platform one and will be released on the PS3, Xbox 360 and also the next-gen systems from Sony and Microsoft.

The game contains a lot of new features including dynamic first touch feature. The game introduced the concept of freedom of movement, the new ‘PES FC’ in PES 2013 goes further with total freedom over ball control.

It also introduces subtle ways to receive the ball, from traps, gently lifting it past an attacker to run on to or a variety of other moves.

First touch is everything and players can trap the ball using the R2 button, killing the speed of a well-hit pass and bringing it instantly under control, or using the momentum of the pass to turn a defender.

The game offers fully manual passing and for the first time ever manual shooting, allowing users to determine the height and power of each. Long low passes can be sent skimming across the pitch, while shooting the user has total control over where the shot is placed.

Skill and precision are needed to master these, but passes can be made into open areas, allowing lone strikers to thrive, while offering an unrivaled variety in ways to score.

Gameplay

It’s a football game that is slightly different than FIFA although the controls are same with reversed keys for shooting and heading. They are all fully customizable as well.

The core strength of PES is the gameplay and the game allows a lot of dribbling techniques and the thrill of passing the ball and scoring it into the back of the net.

The dribbling has been improved. The speed with which a player moves with the ball has been slowed in line with real matches, but using R2 allows players to add various styles to their close control. Players can vary the speed of their dribbling, and cushion the ball as they move freely within a 360-degree circle.

The new system allows players to knock a ball past a player and collect it, nutmeg them, or hold up play by shielding the ball as team mates find space and make runs.

Active one-two passes can be made, with the second player being moved in any direction), facilitating various tactical movements. Countering the attacking options the new dribbling system offers, is a beautifully-balanced defence system. Players can use R2 and X to slow an attack, with a double-tap of the X button prompting a perfectly-timed challenge.

Full 360-degree control means that players can check runs and steal the ball from a parallel position, while the individuality element will see world renowned defenders using aerial dominance of physicality to win the ball.

Even the game’s ‘keepers benefit from more control, while their distribution is more precise thanks to the addition of a power gauge when they throw the ball, creating opportunities for new, quicker counter attacks. [reference]

Stadium & Team list

There are a lot of new stadiums and teams added to the game. Some of them are similar as the previous games but many of them have been redone and touched up. Here’s a complete list of all, some of them could be missing but this is the entire list we know for now. [reference]

Reception

The game has had solid reception around the world, with us giving the game a great score. [reference]

It also has a solid score on Metacritic and is sitting at 82% and while this is lower than FIFA 13, it is still good considering a lot of critics have praised the game for doing a lot of things right. This is one of the most competent PES games yet, but there’s still a long way to go before it can catch FIFA’s popularity among the masses. [reference]

The game didn’t sell as much as FIFA 13 did, but Konami has not expressed disappointment over the game.

Marketing

pes 2013 steelbook edition

Konami have revealed two special editions for the game which you can check out below. [reference]

The specially-packaged version celebrates Konamis exclusive agreement to feature the UEFA Champions League in the PES series, and includes special DLC code to redeem the Historic UEFA Champions League Match Balls used in the competition and other official elements.”

“The UK will also offer a second, Manchester United-themed steelbook edition for pre-orders, boasting the club’s livery on its cover.”
