Let me put it as simple as possible for the people torn between FIFA and PES:

-If you want an extremely realistic game experience, PES 2014 is probably for you.
-If you want to edit players, teams, leagues, and more, PES 2014 is probably for you.
-If you want the option to perform tons of advanced moves, PES 2014 is probably for you.

-If you want an extremely amazing multiplayer experience, FIFA 14 is probably for you.
-If you want every major team and league on the planet available to play, fully licensed, FIFA 14 is probably for you.
-If you want a game that is super easy to play and learn, FIFA 14 is probably for you.

PES 2014 is for me. YOU get to decide what's for you, but my list above is made to aid you in making that decision.

I am a long term PES fan, but I must say: Konami did something really wrong here.
Konami has been loosing market share to FIFA for awhile so this time they tried something new. PES 2014 is a nice looking game (despite the HORRIBLE user interface) but simply isn't fun. If you like soccer games you know this: PES and FIFA can (or could until PES 2014) be compard to CoD and ARMA. One focus in fast action, arcade style and the other one in real life simulation. Same genre but with different playstyle. Each one with it's own type of public.

What Konami tried this year was to come closer to FIFA, becoming a more simulation-like game and this is a problem. I'm not the only one desapointed out there. I always favored PES over FIFA because of it's arcade gameplay and now I don't have that anymore. If I wanted a simulator, with real physics and game tactics I would play FIFA not PES. The magic thing about the PES franchise was that it was fun in its simplicity: easier controls, less realistic physics, the chance to pick up Messi in the defense field and dribble the whole opposing team and score a goal… that’s what PES is about. I tried, I really tried to like this PES 2014, I changed the controller options at all ways I could, but I still don’t like it and that’s why I’m moving back to PES 2013.

The sales of PES 2014 are going really bad, and guess why? EA has a very long experience in soccer simulation games while KONAMI dosn't. The moment PES tries to be the same thing as FIFA, it enters in a area that the rival dominates much better. PES was the king of arcade soccer games, and now it is only the 2nd option in the socccer simulation games genre.

-graphics are better than ever;
-UI is horrible;
-The new control system has good and bad things about it (more depth means it's harder to master);
-Stealing the ball became a horrible task;
-Running for more then 2 seconds means your going to lose the ball [¬¬!];
-The new physics feel really real, but are NO FUN AT ALL.

KONAMI, please bring back the game that I so much liked, the game in which I spent more than 2000 hours in the last 12 years.

As much as I tried to like this game, I just cannot.

First of all, the movement of the players feels robotic. It doesn't feel smooth and it is very annoying to me.

The commentary has incredible changes in mood. He is very happy about the game, but then he mentions the names of the players like if he was depressed.

There still are no secondary leagues. I'd like to have a little more, at least in the major leagues.

The most frustrating part, however, is that the matches feel like they have already been chosen. I mean, come on...we already have real life FIFA for that, we don't need it in game too.
Some matches are stupid easy, others are hard as ♥♥♥♥, especially because your teammates fall asleep and look at the ball, or miss a goal from 5 meters even if you barely even clicked the shoot button. A lot of times I want to pass to a guy and it will pass to the completely opposite direction.
You know when you HAVE to loose a game when a guy scores a bycicle kick with a cross from the goalkeeper. Sure, maybe that's exaggeration, but seriously, at times the enemies have nitro and, even if it is a crappy team, they suddendly, for 2 minutes, play better than Barcelona until they score.

It is also incredibly fun when you slide at a player from behind and it's not a faul, but it is a yellow card (the commentary suggests red) if you get the ball with pressing.

As much as I don't like EA, if you really want to go for a football (or soccer) video game, go for FIFA 14. This one is worse.

Awful game and the worst in the framchise. AI is none existent. Your players have ZERO movement off the ball and it only helps to have fats players, otherwise all the players are the same apart from looks. The worst football game i have played ever! Incomplete game rushed and released early. They have certain things like manual through balls and advanced shooting, which you never have time to use because they close you down too quickly. Then you have low level players frustrate you by holding you off the ball like beasts doing crazy skills and making it impossible to tackle. The referees are idiots. Goal keepers poor and you constantly pass the ball to the opposition because its poor mechanics. You'll hardly ever create chances and no game plan seems to exist. Goals are random and often from your mistakes. Didnt bother lower the skills level lower the Pro because i shouldnt have to. Anyone who enjoys this game has issues. 0/10
