As a long standing FIFA fan I came into PES with an open mind, but I'm going to review this for other FIFA fans out there who no doubt like myself, may have spent years considering whether or not to try PES.

The game engine is phenomenal. Despite being so used to FIFA over the years I was impressed immediately by the physics and gameplay engine. In my opinion it's a far more realistic experience compared to FIFA. I can feel the different weights of the player, the force behind each pass, whether a striker will go down after being tapped during a tackle, etc. It makes for more lifelike gameplay, and that's something I've always felt FIFA has missed. Shooting and passing feels far more precise, and defending (while a little tricky to get a hang of) feels more tactically challenging. The AI isn't perfect and often experiences the same flaws that the FIFA engine has (opposition stops challenging for a dead ball because your player is slightly closer, poor commentating issues, are some examples). There's also an air of iritablity in the passing and shooting assist options; even with the settings turned right down the game can get the odd pass, tackle or shot completely wrong.

The gameplay atmosphere is brilliant. It feels like you're watching a big game on TV, you can feel the importance of each huge match and it spurs you on. Player celebrations, crowd chants and general aesthetics of the game are very pleasing. Champions and Europa League options are absolutely immersive and follow the prestige of the tournament very realisitically. The only downside I can think of is the poor commentating engine, which blatantly feels like the game is being reported by a couple of robots reading from a script.

Customisation is also brilliant, allowing fully custom squads and the ability to precisely fine tune pre-existing players. It certainly is a way to kill hours on end making bizarro squads and players. There's definitely a greater field for customisation than in any current FIFA title.

The main issue that irritated me is that the game feels small. There are the obvious licensing issues that PES faced meaning premier league and bundesliga teams are cheaply substituted into the game (Manchester City is Man Blue, Arsenal is North London FC, etc), while these can be imported through player made club packs, it takes away some prestige to the game. There's also no lower league action for English or any other European countries, meaning I can't play around in SkyBet Championship, League One, etc. Further woe for British squads as there are no Irish or Scottish leagues included (though you can still play as Celtic and Motherwell as standalone clubs). Tournaments within the game start to feel repetitive due to lack of team options. As someone who plays a lot of career and offline mode football, it seems small, and after a few hours I feel as if I've explored the game completely.

If you're new to football games, I'd definitely recommend PES 2014. If you're a FIFA fan, I wouldn't recommend it, but would urge you to try out the game/physics engine at some point.

The actual football is very good. More fluid and dynamic than ever thanks to the engines improvements. Once fully updated with both custom and official patches the graphics are also the most realistic you'll find, and in contrast to the PS3 version the frame-rate is rock solid, and UI lag is almost non-existent. Almost, but not quite; because there is still some latency built in which makes using it for longer than half an hour quite a chore. The fact they've completely redesigned the UI in the first place and removed a lot of previously interesting features from 2013 also grates. If not for that I would be very happy to recommend the game, but as it is I can only give it a thumbs up for those that want to scratch their footballing itch. As a whole 2013 seems like a more complete game, but there's no denying the improvements to the footballing mechanics in 2014.

Pro Evo, what can I say, hell old friend. 7 years away from the series and I have come back and wish I had never stopped. The masters league now has UEFA and Champions League... Oh my giddy aunt! I couldn't wait to sit down and take a team all the way from minnows to masters, the gameplay is as good as it always has been, not only that, the the players look alot more natural than they used to. Long gone are the days of silly rigid players. Thank you EA for making a mess of FiFa bringing me back to the Daddy of Football Simulation.

PES 2014 was unbearable the first couple of months but it has come a long way since launch. Still buggy at times but at least playable now. It has a lot of potential with the new Fox engine but it will take them one more game or two to tweak it to perfection. If you're a PES fan discouraged by the negative feedback at launch then now is a good time to get it. If you've a Fifa player wanting to try something new for a change, you might want to wait until next year.
