Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 (also known by fans as PES 2013 and known officially as World Soccer Winning Eleven 2013 in Asia) is a video game sequel to the 12th edition in the Pro Evolution Soccer series developed and published by Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc.
PES 2013 marks the huge advance for football simulation, with the new video game offering PES FullControl wherein players are given total control over every pass, shot and first touches to the ball. Likewise , Pro-Active AI ensures that players move as they should both on and off the ball, creating a truly authentic big match experience. The Player ID system then enhances the feeling of individuality, with players that not just move and look like their real life counterparts, but also play just like them. Seo Marketing Strategies
PES 2013 demo allows any difficulty setting to be used, and boasts localised language settings.
PES 2013 First Demo features eight fully licensed teams : Germany, England, Portugal, and Italy showcase European football, while Santos FC, SC International, Fluminense and Flamengo are available in the Copa Libertadores mode.
Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 focuses on improving player likenesses so that players in the game behave like their real life counterparts – a system dubbed as ‘PlayerID‘ by the developer. Famous players will run, turn, trap, move the ball and even celebrate like they do in real life.
In terms of player likenesses, PES 2013 is the closest to reality we’ve seen from a soccer game – better even than FIFA 12. The graphics as a whole in Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 are fantastic, from the slick team entrances to the detail of the kits and footwear.
Unfortunately, player animation in Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 is patchy in places. The way players turn feels clunky and unrealistic and goalkeeper throw-outs are laughably exaggerated and jerky. In fact, the supposed improvements to the goalkeepers from the previous version seem to have not worked at all – actually goalies seem more calamitous than ever!
The Player Impact engine in Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 is quite impressive; you notice how players hang into each other and how that influences your (freedom of) movement. However, it still lags behind FIFA’s engine in terms of the extent of the collision animations.
Room for improvement
Those who were disappointed by PES 2012 will appeased somewhat by the changes made in Pro Evolution Soccer 2013, but there’s still plenty of room for improvement in the game.
The tactics screen from the previous version hasn’t been added too – and it still feels a little puny. Having said that, the in-game strategy changes have been made a lot cooler by the fact that the coach appears in a little box in the corner of the screen to shout instructions when you summon him.
There are still some plays in Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 that make it very easy to score. For example, you can still get behind a defense effortlessly with a long through-ball/chip combo.
Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 is a good quality soccer sim which looks great and now gives you more control than ever over the gameplay.
