GSY Review PS4 Xbox One PC

The PES franchise has been trying to come back to the forefront of football games and last year's game was close to take the lead in many respects. After winning the award for best sport game in Cologne, PES 2018 is back and we're about to tell you if the former king truly has returned.
Note from Driftwood: This year, to review PES 2018 properly, we called someone to our rescue, someone who's been playing both FIFA and PES for the past few years. Piteur_Parcoeur is a French member on Gamersyde and he's been able to play this year's edition of PES for more than 25 hours before giving his verdict.

I only watched 1 vid so far but the ball looks heavy and player animations are just as robotic as before not to mention the dead faces. Seems that football games are still behind

Gameplay is good but the lighting for sunny matches is horrible and it's if your playing on a bowling green instead of a football pitch, Day/Rain & Cloudy matches look great though. Night matches ok but they have that bowling green effect as well.

Play the demo, The ball physics are very good for the most part (finesse shots still have issues) and player faces for alot of players are incredible (miles ahead of Fifa faces) obvs not all players can get the same treatment.

Just watched the other vids, somehow the ball only looks that heavy on the Inter video. But like you said, I need to try myself both games to decide but so far neither looks good enough to buy it. Buying PES at day 1 or early not worth it, after several weeks when everything is modded then yes but not at full price

After hammering the Fifa demo it's actually scary just how much better PES is on the pitch this year!

I wasn't too impressed with the PES demo, although the final game with the day 1 patch is supposed to have corrected a few of the issues I had with it. Still needs some work done to shooting and AI closing down the space positionally for it to be where it needs to be at, though. It could get there eventually. Hopefully.

As for Fifa, yeah, 1 minute of watching it play is enough for me to tell that nothing has changed in that thing since 2012. It'll still outsell PES by about 50-1.
