Much improved from last year's game,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
I played the demo and loved it but I was still wary that the final product may not be the same as the demo (demos of 11 and 12 were completely different from the actual game).
Game modes are pretty much the same as last year with the exception of Club Boss which is now gone.
New for this game is the addition of the Brazilian league (fully licensed) and the addition of 3 brazilian stadiums and all 20 La Liga (spanish league) stadiums. There are 50 stadiums in the game but you can create many more with the Create A Stadium option.
The biggest improvement is the thing that matters the most which is the gameplay. Manual passing and shooting are great in this game. Use manual settings for a more realistic experience.
The defending system has also changed a bit. You really have perfectly time your tackles or else the opponent will just skip past you. Also gone is the speed merchant attribute. No more playing against a team full of speed merchants in MLO.
One flaw this game is the through balls. The CPU abuses the through ball and it's how you concede most of the goals against it.
Very annoying until you learn how to defend them.
Still the gameplay is great and very addicting. I can't stop playing it. You learn something new in every game you play.
Anyone who wants a realistic soccer experience should get the new PES.

If you played the actual game of soccer before for an organized league, then you will realize that if you don't perfectly time your tackle, the opponent can certainly skip past you, and remember your playing against world class players, they take advantage of any small timing error. Also, the best offensive team move and the biggest problem for a defender is the through ball, or give and go, check out Barcelona and their style of play why its so effective. I have played PES since 2009, and did try FIFA in 2012. PES is much more realistic than the FIFA game, FIFA will give you an arcade feel and caters to those who have watched soccer more than playing soccer.
