Pro Evolution Soccer is the next step forward for football fans that enjoy fast-paced game play.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 is similar in many ways to the 2012 version with a few important upgrades that have been included. Before these improvements are examined, it should be observed that the details of the players themselves are more intricate and the graphics are likewise quite impressive; two hallmarks of the Konami franchise of games. The only drawback that some have noted is that player movements can be patchy from time to time; running and head-to-head interactions may appear a bit unrealistic.

Character Depictions

This has been one of the most impressive upgrades which have taken place since the 2012 version. Many feel that player likenesses are even better than those witnessed within the FIFA 2012 platform developed by Electronic Arts. The faces are highly detailed and the same can be noted in terms of the kits and their uniforms. Another interesting development is known as "PlayerID". In essence, the specific motions and even the celebrations of players such as Lionel Messi have been programmed into the game. So, there is a much higher level of realism than is possible in previous versions.

Detailed Controls

The gamer now has much more control over the movements of a specific player. Manual shooting and passing are now possible while dribbling has been improved alongside the ability to slow down or speed up the actions of a certain character. This can help add to the excitement of competitions and many will be very impressed with such features. However, there have nonetheless been some criticisms in regards how it can be rather easy to score under certain scenarios and player-to-player encounters still feel a bit too much like the 2012 version in terms of interaction.

Game Specifications

Pro Evolution Soccer is able to be used with Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8. Of particular concern could be the file size. At just over 1 gigabyte, a robust amount of memory and processing power is needed. Those with slower computers could experience frustrating freezes as well as the forced closure of tandem applications that may be running simultaneously.

Summarily, what are some of the benefits and disadvantages of this platform?

Pros

  • Excellent player details
  • Improved controls

Cons

  • The amount of memory required can be challenging for some users
