Cass gets his hands on some futbol in PES 2013 review

Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 is the latest edition of the Pro Evolution Soccer series developed and published by Konami. This release features teams from the UEFA Champions League and marks the first time all 20 teams from Brazil’s National League Campeonato Brasileiro Series A are accessible in addition to over 81 national teams. PES Soccer 2013 is available on Microsoft Windows, Nintendo DS, Playstation 2, Playstation 3, Xbox 360, PSP, iOS & Android. Given the vast list of platforms to play this on, this will be the last year this game uses its current game engine. While unboxing this game you can feel the excitement by looking at the snazzy box art with the league seals.

Once loaded, the game starts off with you building your profile. This is a very thorough profile setup and takes about 10 minutes to configure and enter your online access code. There are a variety of game modes: Match Play, UEFA Champions League, Copa Santander Libertadores, Football Life, Online Community & Training so there is much to choose from when deciding on what to play. In addition to the multitude of game modes there are 6, yes 6, different difficulty levels to accurately find your skillset. I suggest starting off with Match Play to get a feel for the game which is great, the physics, the controls, the graphics and the music. The music blaring out the speakers fills the room with great Brazilian party anthems and more. If you feel your skill set isn't ready for competitive play head to the training section where you will acquire the knowledge and the moves needed to be a future superstar.
Overall, this game is great to have in your catalog for those die hard soccer fans. Especially if you are looking to break away from the commercialized FIFA brand. Solid gameplay, stellar graphics, a multitude of game modes and an excellent soundtrack. Call some friends over or play online, make sure to bring the chips because the party is just getting started.
